Have scoured threads here and ifixit.com and have found a lot of useful info so far - thanks to those who have contributed. In the fog of flu, I spilled some water on my mba. I flipped it over, depowered, and immediately put it over a fha vent for drying. 24 hours later, it booted and has been operational for the last 3 days with the only issues being 3 or 4 keys that dont work (like the apostrophe key!). Brought it to the Genius Bar and felt like I got a used car sales job; refused three times to quote me a price on replacing top panel and wanted me to replace both the logic board and the SSD, which was, roughly, the same price as buying new. Gave me a big show about corrosion (although it was hidden under the SSD) and essentially that my mba was dead man walking. My questions are these: 1) None of my research indicates that liquid damage is fatal, particularly if it was just water and it didnt short the components immediately. Is this true, or is the GB agent characterizing my MBA having terminal cancer more correct? 2) Cleaning corrosion - nothing much explicit on what to do here. In the old days of my Raytheon stint, I wouldve wiped it down with Iso and MEK, but am sure at least MEK is no longer allowed. What chems do I use? Am assuming a nylon electronics brush will tackle this, or do I need to use something more aggressive? Once I clean this, is there anything else needed to preclude future corrosion, or is this going to be a recurring task? 3) Assuming I get back to the actual keyboard, is it repairable? There are specific keys and wondering if I just need to clean the circuitry under those keys. Appreciate the help as this will put the puzzle pieces together.
