Spilled drink into usb-c holes, die on start at 2/5 update bar

Hello! So i spilled a sticky sugary drink into both the usb c holes. I didnt notice it at first, i just cleaned the table and a little bit underneath the computer. The mac continued to run with no problems until the next day when i tried to plug it in, noticed the stickyness and it wouldnt charge.

So i repeatedly inserted the charger, removed, cleaned carefully with damp paper around the usb c metal part, dried with paper, repeated the process until it felt normal. The mac finally started charging no problem

Day 2. The charger stopped working, but my oneplus charger worked (?) so apparently i killed the apple charger.

Day 3. The mac accidentally died due to 0% batteri and havent been charged. So i insert oneplus charger, it says its charging, but when i boot the loading bar reaches 40% before the screen turns black.

If i load into safe more or whatever you reach when holding the on/off button, i can see the battery is charged, and i can select macintosh ssd or “options” either option seems to return to normal booting, shutting down at 40% loading bar

What can i do? I still have warranty but they wont be happy

Diese Frage beantworten Ich habe das gleiche Problem

If you refer to Apple, they won’t be unhappy either; since warranty doesn’t cover liquid damage, all costs will be on your side and it won’t be cheap.

You may try a lab, if you have any in your area servicing independently Apple products, where they might take apart your Air and try decontaminate parts touched by the drink which, according to your description, has probably gone all the way into the logic board. It might be the logic board is damaged too, but if you want to give it a try with self-repair assuming only filth prevents working, use > 90% IPA for cleaning residues on the board. Watch this guide to see if you feel like doing it yourself to evaluate the difficulty involved:
