    hey i accidently spilled water on the charger of my macbook , i didnt notice it until today , i can see that there was a short circuit on the charger since the plug in its burned, the charger is working but the light on the charger doesnt works at all , if i plug in the charger the light just goes green for a second and then it shuts off or goes to a lighter green color, anyone has any idea if its dangerous to my macbook using the charger?, also the light of the charger stays on even if not plugged to the computer
    thanks

    I wouldn't take the risk, if it does do any damage to your Macbook it probably wouldn't be covered by Applecare. It's better just to take it in for repair or replacement.

    I'd just buy a new one, I doubt they will fix that...

    ye, it may well be fine but i personally wouldn't risk wrecking your macbook. for the sake of £60, prolly cheaper on ebay
