    hello, i have a macbook pro 15' i7 retina early 2013
    water fell on it a few weeks back and i took it too a store to get it dried off. the mac works but it has some problems. 1: the retina display starts off with a green tint and gets back to normal after about 15 minutes. 2: the screen pixels up and crashes and reboots every few hours. i have a system report but i don't know how to read it. can someone help? thank you.

    and to add one more thing...the cpu area and gpu was not effected by water ....a little water fell on the ram and the external parts. thanks again

    Is it usually Chrome that comes up in the backtrace? Chrome will sometimes invokes graphics switching. Either way it looks like it may be on its way out. So you took it to the Apple Store? Did they actually mention anything about the extent of water seepage?

    The report tells you a few things. The panic report just tells you things like register values, which core caused the fault, and what drivers were loaded. These things rarely ever happen unless you have a bad driver or hardware problem. In your case a hardware problem seems obvious. Without either of those things, you should almost never see a kernel panic.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I forgot to mention somthing else. My ssd had a problem and i put one in from my macbook air 2013 running yosemite. It had yosemite installed from the air that is a i5. Is it possible that the os is the problem since it was installed for i5?


    I am from greece and we really dont have apple stores here so i took it to a repair shop but they opened it in front of me. The water really hardly fell anywhere on the mainboard. Only a few drops around the ram


    I also ran a gpu stress test a few times and it passed perfect. I ran the diagnostics at boot and it says mac is perfect. When the screen pixels up and crashes it looks like a gpu problem but it runs gpu tests perfect under a large stress so i cant understand why.

    It's definitely possible. I would back up your data on Time Machine and do a fresh install. You could then try a restore at that point from Time Machine, but if that restore continues to cause crashes, then you'll need to do the reinstall again, but manually re-install apps and bring back your documents from the backup.

    All it takes is a little water hitting the wrong connection, or causing corrosion in a small place. The green tint you mention on the display is definitely not a software problem. That's hardware, and most likely the result of water damage.

    The GPU tests will only detect problems at the time the GPU is acting up. If it's an intermittent issue - which happens a lot with water damage - you'll have to get lucky and run the test at the exact time the GPU is exhibiting problems.

    Also, it might not be the GPU. The display issues could be the result of a problem with the LCD connector, or the display itself. You could find out for sure by connecting an external monitor and seeing if the display problems also show up there.

    Ok... I just did a clean install with yosemite and the problem still persists. Do you recomend me bringing it to be cleaned in a ultrasonic tank with isoprol alcohol? Thanks again

    To add somthing new. I took out the ssd and loaded yosemite to a external usb drive and it is working perfect. Very slow but no reboots or pixeled screen. I sent a pic of what the screen does before reboot. Thank you so much for your advice :)
