*Sorry Due to my poor english. I hope you understand. This all started May 31st Sunday 5AM. I accidentally spilled milk on my macbook keyboard. *Yes, who will ever dripped milk on New Macbook Pro that I purchased on March 2015? I panic of course, I fliped over dried every milk with Kitchen towel and use hair dryer cold air right after. *Macbook Pro automatically shut down. It probably sense the liquid and turn it off by itself. My macbook won't turn on or even with charger. It was just a black screen. My macbook is DEAD. I went to Apple Store at 10 AM w/o appointment on Genius Bar; Luckily I was able to talk to a person who can help me. He requested me $821 dollars for Repair fees. Apple DOES NOT RECOVER LIQUID DAMAGE. He explained why everything are (connected?) Its like brain. So you need to pay for that amount of repair fees. I'm Asian American. However, I'm not good with computer Hardware. But I do know that was Overpriced. I can't pay amount of that money because I'm independent college student. I decided write contract and delay to turn my macbook. Because I know that my macbook is still Alive! *( I had a hope that I can fix it by myself) *I spend literally spend 4 hours searching through website and Youtube video ; (There is one person in the Youtube actually managed to fix it by himself!) Yes, I can fix it! Without any knowledge about Macbook Hardware, I decided to get a tools. I literally spent 30 dollars on screwdrivers ifixit set (Fry's Electronics; I'm going to turn in back and get a refund. But I realize this is Quite useful that you don't want to return it.) Here is stuff I decided to fix: What I purchased or things I needed to fix: - ifixit screw drivers set - toothbrush - ethnyl alcohol 91% - plastic box like medicine pill box to indicate the screws - microscope(optional) I didn't use it of course. - Your DEAD MACBOOK *First thing is first I went to search through Internet and take every **** out Except the battery. Yes, Battery Keyboard Trackpad thats the least things You wanted to take it Out. That is Hard to take it out. Btw, Taking parts in This Macbook is Level 10/10 (Extremely Hard) I learned so many lesson just doing myself. Yes, first I mixed up some screws, Yes I'm stupid, impatient, hoping that it will works. This can result as not holding right place and break the part of macbook. *Very important: Take a photo Once you open the back part of lid. YOU WILL SEE THE CORRUPTED BLUE POWDER Molder piece of **** or some **** where the motherboard got burned ! (YES That's the part you Scrub with toothbrush ) Luckily Because of Liquid detection on my macbook pro. I only found on my circuit board where it links the battery power(I do not know what it does) *YES so, my battery is DEAD and Of course it's not working. It failed to boot up while it load 20% it just died. Yes I failed to fix it. Of course, Its 60% possibility. You really think so???? 60%? By reading and learning carefully. it will be 99% trust me. The computer won't DIE cause of liquid damage. It won't ! You have to check the corruption. You dont have to do DIAGNOSTIC TEST and pay money for that. DO that by yourself if you have your own Eye. I feel really a lot betrayed by Apple Company. I wish Apple was Sony. I wished they can replace my macbook for free because I spend 2K for this computer. Anyways, sorry about my long talk. The problem with my computer was Heat Sink. The Heat Sink was not applied with Thermal Paste which made big noise on my fan that causes FAIL to bootup. I was managed fix it by one of friendly technician. However, the battery is DEAD. It does not work with charger. *YES its not fully repaired. BUT EVERYTHING WORKS FINE OTHER THAN PROBLEM WITH BATTERY. I'm VERY SATISFIED NOW. I literally Spend 7 hours to fix this computer. What an Adventure. Macbook is so hard to fix ! Just because they made it built so people can't fix easily. However, this things can be fixed on every people's hand if you really take time on it. Please do not pay liquid damage fees $800. You can buy better laptop with that amount of money. Trust me. Thank you. MilkDamageDev P.S. I have a new problem to solve now. Should I exchange the battery by myself or Go check the apple? Because they will not fix it if i tell them its liquid damage. However, there is already record. They use microscope so they will know there is milk spill on the motherboard. Even though the computer are fully dried. What should I do? Any recommendation ?
