I have a 3-year-old Mac Book Pro laptop with AppleCare warranty. It was working fine except that the CD drive sometimes won't eject. The tech at an Apple Store confirmed the condition and sent it to a repair center. Traces of a liquid spill was found (which happened almost a year ago and never bothered me) and the warranty repair was therefore declined. The estimate was $700 for replacing the CD drive, very steep for an old laptop. So I refused and they shipped it back to me. But now it won't turn on. I called and asked if they could restore the laptop to the same condition as it was when I brought it to the Apple Store. They said since I refused the paid repair, they were not responsible to put the laptop back together in the same condition, even if the laptop broke while in Apple's possession. (Or perhaps the tech that put it back together forgot to connect a cable or something.) Any similar experience or legal advice would be highly appreciated. Do I have any recourse or am I screwed?
