    I'm hoping someone can help me out with a little advice.

    I brought my MacBook into Apple today for some screen problems. They told me I damaged it, by either water or another "physical force". I'm almost 100% sure I didn't spill on it, and they refuse to do any additional tests.

    So does anybody know or have pictures of water damage to their MacBook screens? I want to know what it looks like. If somebody could share pictures or descriptions - I'd be really happy :) . I'll try to get a picture up but the camera is nowhere to be found. Thanks!

    That looks exactly like liquid damage. A customer came in a couple weeks ago with a tea tree oil spill on his MB (thing still worked!) and the screen looked just like that.

    Picture

    I tried to take a picture, but just could not get it to show up. But take a view at the spot on this screen and tell me, do you think that color or brightness is from a defective screen or liquid damage? I have the same thing in a different shape on mine.

    It seems to me that its a bad screen, but if I'm wrong, do not hesitate to let me know.

    That looks to me like a defective screen. If it was a physical impact you'd see evidence of it, like cracks throughout the screen. Liquid damage would show up more like the Windex photo linked above. Large splotches that start at the edge of the screen. What you linked here is neither of those two.

    yea I agree w/ 'vniow' from that pic you provided it definitely doesn't look like water damage...
    Go back and speak to someone else who would be a little more helpful and a little more sympathetic...
