macbook water damage repair
Finally there are some great news regarding Apple! That doesn’t happen very often, other than when you hear about their stock going up to record levels or the next iphone they release. So people can start lining up around the block if they want to get it! Cause you know it has all those great features, kinda like the current phone you have, only a lot better! Maybe 5% better or so! Anyhow. That’s a topic for another conversation.
Today’s conversation is about keyboards! And keyboard Apple did fix on these new macbooks that came out in 2020!
Why should this be great news to you?! Well, because since all the way back in 2015, Apple released this new miracle keyboard- called butterfly keyboard. It was so great! So low, so slick looking! That replaced this old, clunky keyboard from the past!!! And I agree, it was a great keyboard, but only to look at. Cause if you had to type something, you wouldn’t be so excited about it then…
And just like Air pods were Apple’s greatest product, therefore the equivalent analogy on the negative side, was no other than – “a butterfly keyboard”! (if you don’t believe me, just put “butterfly keyboard problem in google search and see what happens!
You’re back! how many million searches were there? Anyhow, here is my take on it…. The keyboard was so bad, that Apple actually changed it back to an old clunky, to tall-key keyboard from the dinosaur computers of last Millennia! because Apple, finally learned (in four years) that people actually WANT TO USE THEIR KEYBOARDS FOR TYPING on their computers, not just to look how pretty it is!
If you haven’t computer with that keyboard, consider yourself lucky. cause otherwise, you might have had to pay a random 300-400 hundred USD to replace your keyboard cause your space bar or some other key got stuck and wouldn’t move anymore. or if you spilled something on your keyboard by accident and your keys were sticky. You could not just lift the keys and clean them out. You would have to replace the whole keyboard or the whole palm rest for that matter! And you would be baffled and would have had a slightly puzzled look on your face, after Apple would have told you, it wasn’t covered by warranty or something between those lines.
But luckily! Enough about the negative! Today, if you own a new 2020 macbook. The keys are actually back to normal! and you can clean them out with no problem! So go ahead and don’t be so shy about spilling coke, pepsi, orange juice, beer, wine, milk, black tea with sugar on it or whatever else you want to spill on it!Because the new-old keys now can be cleaned out! and they can be cleaned out very flawlessly!
Just be careful if you spill something on your macbook, you might also damage the logic board and you might need macbook water damage repair too!
How do we know? Well, we actually had a chance to clean them today, because there was some soda on spilled on them and they were pretty sticky! 2 hours later it was history! All working like new again!

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.
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:
- turn computer on immediately! push and hold power button until computer shuts off.
- call us at 805-585-5535 or stop by at 3339 kimber dr. suite D, newbury park, ca 91320
- 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!
