    RE: Disaster

    Doesn't sound like much of a disaster seeing you took the time to record it, upload, and post here what camera you used. :rolleyes:

    I'm glad you knew what to do. You wouldn't believe how many people turn it on after the spill to make sure its ok. DONT DO THAT. IT WILL SHORT CIRCUIT SOMETHING.

    Dont fret, the MBP keyboard is designed to be liquid resistant.

    Did anyone else notice he made sure to get his award in the shot every time? It started to the right of the monitor in the beginning, then it was facing the camera during the teardown. :p

    My step daughter spilled green tea on her MBP 15" 2 x's. Replaced it once already and she did it again, 2 x's.

    Took both apart each time and did the same stuff in video. No hair dryer... already too dry.

    Finally, with both Macs, had to sell them as dead or not working. She now has a 3rd. Not my choice, but oh well.

    Just one question though... what did you use the toothpick for (green plastic one)?

    Great video. Funny.

    Awww man I though I would get an email if someone replied to my post! Glad I came to check it. Thanks for all your comments!

    After the chime it must have been at least 3 minutes before the display came on. I just sat there contemplating my next move. I cut quite a lot of the wait out of the video so it wouldn't get boring. I have an SSD so I had no idea if it was doing anything or not. Since then it's back to normal and comes on after the chime.

    @macbwizard I think it is true because on the inside there is a seal covering the keyboard. I decided not to break the seal and instead sprayed contact cleaner into the keys to remove the stickiness. The only visible reminder of the whole ordeal is that the keyboard backlight is a lot brighter where I sprayed the cleaner. I can live with that.

    @TheGambler The table is actually clean and I purposely forgo coasters to add new stains all the time.

    @macmikey2 I used the floss pick as my splunger, a tool used to pry accessory cables off the motherboard.

    It's a spludger, not a splunger. The latter is what a person with a lisp uses to unclog their toilet.

    Oh come one, give the guy a break ... he just wanted to brag about his FF camera body! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    We do not allow any beverages in open top containers within 6 feet of any computers around here.

    We have never had a computer damaged from beverage spills.
