Spilled Wine On The Computer

If i could have a penny for every time i heard people say: i spilled wine on the computer. I would have a lot of pennies! maybe even few dollars at this point! 🙂

Wine is actually one of the many liquids people tend to spill on their pc laptops or macbooks accidentally. usually it is water or coffee or milk, beer, juice- you name it!

Yet one common thing i notice is that people often don’t even realize that electric circuit boards and fluids don’t go very well together. Especially when there is electric current involved in the mix!

If people spilled wine the computer, they will usually let it sit a day or two, thinking it will dry out. then they turn it on and nothing happens. Or computer might turn on and then turn off few minutes later.

That happens because, believe it or not, there is a residue that forms on the inside of computer from fluids spilled,which creates corrosion and that creates unnecessary connections between components that shouldn’t be touching together. Which then lets electric current go where it is not supposed to and it burns something as result.

red wine spilled on computer

That’s why, if you spill wine on the computer, best thing to do is to disconnect or take out the battery from your pc or macbook as soon as possible. and then open the computer to clean the remaining fluids off inside the computer. so those improper connections are not created.

the problem with that these days is that most computers today are designed in a way, so access to battery is very difficult. macbooks for example require a type of screwdriver that is difficult to find and not many people will have it laying around the house!

As well as pc computers, also have batteries inside the laptops now and are difficult to open, with screws often hidden under rubber pads, plastic lining or screws hidden under the keyboard and so on!

In other words, manufacturers don’t really want you to have quick access to anything these days! and that’s where we come in!

So if you happen to spill wine on your computer(or any other fluid), best thing is to:

  1. turn computer on immediately! push and hold power button until computer shuts off.
  2. call us at 805-585-5535 or stop by at 3339 kimber dr. suite D, newbury park, ca 91320
  3. and we will open it for you, clean it off and in most cases your computer will be working as it did before

Do not get fooled thinking that computer will dry out on it’s own on the inside. It may do that, but that takes more than one day! there is little air ventilation on the inside of any laptop and it may take a week or even two for fluids to evaporate from the inside naturally! do not turn the computer on until it has been opened and made sure fluids are completely gone. or otherwise you might damage your pc laptop or a macbook even futher!

you have been warned!

we provide full macbook water damage repair and pc laptop water damage repair on the component level if necessary!

Dell Inspiron 5559 Power Button Failure

Dell Inspiron 5559 Power Button Failure is quite a common problem. we replaced a few already. in the past couple of months we replaced a few of them. to the point where it starts to seem like a common power button failure on these types of laptops.

what happens is out of the sudden, when you press the button it becomes hard to press, then harder and then it stops responding completely. So a user is not able to turn on his dell laptop.

Dell Inspiron 5559 Power Button Failure
Dell Inspiron 5559 Power Button Failure

the reason is that the power button board has a tiny little button on it, which wears off over time. Making it difficult to press it. To the point where, eventually, it does not press at all. So it become impossible to power on your laptop.

this seems like some kind of design flaw by dell. Which happens when companies invent new products for the sake of inventing new products. But then, as result, things like that occur and consumers just have to deal with it.

either way the fix for it, is not too terrible. we usually have a replacement part in stock. it takes about 1.5 hours and we can just replace the power button board and computer starts working perfectly, like it did before.

a1706 13 inch retina 2017 macbook pro water damage repair

this a1706 13 inch retina 2017 macbook pro water damage repair was a bit unusual. coffee was spilled on the macbook all over the keyboard and macbook was still starting up, but was very very slow and trackpad with keyboard was not working.

first thing if you are reading this, i want you to understand one thing and one thing only. water and computers(or other electronics) do not mix! because water is a great conduit of electricity and computer components are designed in such way on logic boards, so they are not supposed to be touching each other.

if you spill water on a circuit board while electricity is connected to it, usually in macbooks that is done using a battery. then water or fluid starts making connections where there supposed to be no connection and hence things on logic board start to get damaged.

so the very first thing you want to do is to try prevent water from going into computer in first place. but if that happens, second best thing you can do, is to disconnect the battery from the logic board.

however. with macbooks, and with most pcs nowadays too, it is not that easy to do. because especially with macbooks you need to have a special screwdriver called pentalobe just to get the screws out and that tool is not being sold anywhere within driving distance usually!

so unless you prepare in advance and acquire the tool, just so you have it in case something happens, your best bet in case you spill some fluid on your macbook pro is to at least turn it off by holding power button down and flip it upside down so the water runs back out and doesnt reach any of the electrical components and then run to the nearest computer shop to open it up and disconnect the battery.

with this a1706 13 inch retina 2017 macbook pro water damage repair case, the owner flipped it over, but it was already too late. the fluid has hit the trackpad connector and hence the trackpad and keyboard was not working. as i opened it up it was visible right away where connector has been damaged.

so it will have to be replaced, a1706 trackpad cable was also damaged and will have to be fixed. and also logic board is running very slow and have to be repaired.

good thing is that this person was able to find fastest mac repair and pc repair in newbury park and will get it done as soon as possible!

if you have macbook pro water damage repair, feel free to call us at 805-585-5535 or stop by at fastest mac repair and pc repair newbury park 3339 kimber dr. Suite D, Newbury park , ca 91320. we will help you immediately!

Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade

Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade, nowadays, is probably the most common repair that we do in our shop at fastest mac repair and pc repair in newbury park.

when SSD’s or solid state disks first came out, it did not seem like a big improvement, but now since SSD’s have become better, faster and cheaper. it seems like the most logical way to go.

Installing SSD into your imac, macbook or pc computer makes the whole difference in the world. because SSD we use, are 15 times faster than a regular 5400 rpm hard drive in the way they read information.

Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade

so upgrading it really becomes a no-brainer at this point. because your computer will literally run 10x faster and you won’t have to wait that extra second for things to open and using a computer will become nice again!

how long does it take to do it? this Imac 27 inch SSD Upgrade took literally overnight. but it really depends on how many files your old hard drive has. yet unless your old hard drive is really failing, no imac has taken us more than a day to do an upgrade. or in some cases same day also.

most imacs even if you have an imac with fusion drive still use factory installed old type spinning hard drives. and they can be replaced and upgraded to SSD.

if you want to have a faster imac, feel free to call us at 805-585-5535 or stop by at 3339 kimber dr. Suite D, newbury park, ca 91320 and we can do it for you in no time! cheers!

Why You Shouldn’t Ever Go To Apple For Repairs

today i received a call from people who told me they took their macbook pro a1502 2015 to apple service department, because it was shutting down. Apple kept it for an hour in the back and then came out and said they needed to replace logic board on it. because it was bad.

So naturally macbook pro owners got shocked and decided to come to us for a second opinion. and im glad they did.

it took me about 15 minutes to find out what was wrong with it. In fact it was actually pretty much visible to a naked eye what was wrong.

it was not a logic board failure. because if you know anything about computers you know how to figure out if logic board is really at fault.

however they Apple did none of those things. they just kept the macbook pro in the back, probably without even opening it. See their procedures is to diagnose at their best ability. and their best ability is some kids off the street filling out applications and hopefully being accepted for a summer job pretending they know how to fix computers on resume, just because they have used one and pressed some keys on it at some point in their lives!

when i looked at it, i saw almost right away that one cell of the battery looked more expanded than the others. to the point where it had some tiny marks on it, from pressing against the lid for a while.

And again, if a technician knows anything about macs, he would know almost immediately that apple batteries go bad by expanding all the time. and in this case battery was shorted out somehow and made macbook pro a1502 shut down intermittently.

when i disconnected battery and ran macbook pro on adapter power only, it was working just fine! no logic board replacement needed! voila! couple hundred dollars saved! and no need to replace parts that dont need to be replaced! imagine that!

virus cleaning on a mac (but i thought macs don’t get viruses)

virus cleaning on a mac

BUT BUT i thought macs don’t get viruses! is one of those phrases that if i could get a nickel every time i heard that, i would have a lot of nickels! or not!

reality is that a lot of people are surprised to hear that macs get some kind of viruses, because that is one of those myths (and sales points) people know about macs in general. people are sold on it from long time ago and rightfully so. Because the statement is kind of true in a way.

when someone says macs do not get viruses they mean mac OS or macs operating system can not be infected with a virus. that is almost entirely true. because mac os is built(unlike windows) in a different way. where pretty much all programs run independently of operating system. they are like little separate entities running their little scripts and they don’t rely on other programs or operating system to do it. they use operating system as foundation only and thats why it is difficult to put a virus on mac which would affect the way computer works as a whole. so usually there is no need of virus cleaning on a mac at all. virus cleaning on a mac

windows is actually opposite. windows runs as if the whole world is a bubble and everything is connected inside with each other. all programs are connected with windows as if they had umbilical cord connected to the mother for survival. and therefore by injecting a code into a system like that it is easy to affect the whole operating system and make things crash or whatever else viruses do that will affect everything.

however in todays day an age things are different. and the main difference is that word virus used to describe malicious programs in the past. has now evolved into many different other words. like malware, adware, ransomware, cryptoware, etc etc. they all do different things and thats why they have different funny names.

now lets get to the actual topic of this post! About time right!? the picture i have posted above is from a virus scan on an imac that customer brought in. it was infected pretty heavily. if you opened a browser, first of all you would see some strange looking home page, that sort of looks like google but its not. then you see all kinds of ads popping up, then you type a web address into a window but you are taken to completely different website! whats going on?! well you need a virus cleaning on a mac. thats whats going on!

most of the time these days people get what’s called adware on their computers. they are kinda like viruses but they are not! i call them legal viruses. they are legal because they don’t have any characteristics of a virus, they even have a special term to be called- PUP or potentially unwanted programs. they don’t do any harm to your computer but they sure are annoying. on mac you see them in forms of mymaccleaner, mackeeper, shopping buddy, etc etc. what they do is they pretend to be an antivirus or a shopping companion or something else, they are hard to turn off, they offer you to buy something and so on. but they don’t steal your information nor do they harm your computer, they just annoy and trash your computer hoping you will buy something or they will take you to a site they advertise so you can buy something there!

anyhow that is what you get on a mac (as well as on pc) nowadays! they are common, they hijack your browsers they drive you crazy and thats when you know you need a virus cleaning on a mac!

macbook pro water damage battery replacement

macbook pro water damage battery replacement

the great Bruce Lee once said, don’t be rigid,  Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water.  the reason he said that is because water has no shape or form on visible level and there is really no way to know where it’s gonna go, unless you have a container for it or you restrain it. 

so when someone spills fluids or water on a macbook pro there is really no way of telling where the water is going to go.  so best thing you can do, really, is to open the lid up as fast as possible and disconnect the battery. it is electricity that kills computers when water is on them. nothing else. but if you dont disconnect battery then there is no way of knowing where the water will go or what damage is it going to do. macbook pro water damage battery replacement

like in this case of macbook pro water damage battery replacement, water went literally everywhere. macbook pro needed logic board repair because it would not start at all. and then after logic board was repaired. we noticed that the battery was not recognized. and it was obvious why. the red dot on battery board indicated there was water there and there was corrosion on board itself. so verdict was simple battery was shorted out it was dead.

macbook pro beer damage repair

macbook pro beer damage repair

  1. statistic show that mac users are way more prone to spill fluids on their macbooks than pc users. i dont know why that is. i suspect because mac people are free souls and creative types and dont sit in their cubicles with their back straight looking at one point into the monitor! and yes they don’t. that is obvious. the creative types sit at starbucks, on couch, on sofa, on beach, at parties and many other places where there are drinks and fluids around! it sounds so freeing and great, yet they do pay a hefty price for it! see you can be creative all you want, but computers by the way they are made, they just don’t like to get wet!

macbook pro beer damage repairi personally sit with my computer everywhere too, but i dont let drinks or any other fluids near it. i have seen it too many times gone wrong way! so i guard my laptop from those kind of accidents! so this macbook pro came in cs fluids were spilled on it! and i was told it was water, but when i opened it. i smelled some other smell and it was too familiar for me not to recognize( Brett Kavanaugh would have recognized it too! he loves it so much! LOL) haha it was beer! so now we had a macbook pro beer damage repair on our hands! and it was a little different from water. cause some beers are sweeter than others so i think they put sugars in them and that makes beer a little sticky too. so few components had to be washed off.

anyhow this macbook pro 2015 had battery damage too, so that had to be replaced also! it turned out all ok at the end! computer works fine! everyone is happy!  toast to that!
