what would you do if you spill water all over your new Macbook air i5 keyboard?
Post on a forum asking what people would do if they spilled water on their keyboard.
Bring attention to such an act of negligence to a world audience??
Send my laptop to the third person who posts in my thread about spilling water on the keyboard and let him have it free of charge.
Break out the wallet and buy a new computer.
Being a mechanical engineer, I'd submit a work request order to some of my electronics, instruments and control systems engineering buddies.. whilst complaining how their systems are just not as robust as the mechanical ones...
I would not try to turn it on... Let it dry... Using a hair dryer fan might also help...
But certainly let it dry. Water is a conductor and will misalign the system current causing one or more short circuits and loss of articulated power up/ing...
Did I mention.. Let it dry...
I'd leave it over the next couple of days or more depending on the climatic conditions etc.
you are clearly cheating here.....
Leave it to dry for a few days and don't try turning it on... If you have a suitable screwdriver take the bottom off and leave it to dry.. Pray to the apple god as well (that would be Steve ) and perhaps you may get lucky
Hold on, I'm spilling water over my keyboard now. I will post as soon as I exami
if you have a dehumidifier, stick your laptop next to the intake fan and let it sit there for a day or to.
I used this trick on my friends laptop that had a fish cooler tip over on it. (don't ask) But it worked great except for not removing the fish smell...
Put it under the fridge
the exhaust fan?
That actually made me laugh out loud, thank you for that!
OP, I did the same thing... I got it repaired for like $500 bucks from an Apple-authorized retailer who sent it to Apple to get fixed (I know, confusing) They had to replace a ton. It sucked. I now don't let myself drink anywhere near my computer. My friends think I'm over-paranoid, but honestly... $500... And two weeks without a computer.
whew.. good thing there's Best Buy accidental insurance.
open the MBA and bury it in rice for a day or two..
I'd call my home insurance company and pay them $200 to replace it.
You spilled yours and too embarrassed to admit it?
Add seed and sunlight.
Personally, I would drive all the way to Death Valley and try to "Air" it out.
That happened to me a few weeks ago. Fortunately, Apple waived the repair charge, but it would have been a $755 repair to replace the logic board. Accidental damage insurance isn't a bad idea.
