    I have a Macbook Pro that received a small amount of liquid damage on the keyboard. A local shop cleaned the internals of the MBP and the laptop seemed to work well for a few days. A small amount of bubble looking outlines began to appear near the bottom of the display, progressively getting worse. Now the display has begun to fail & has a medium sized bubble outline near the bottom of the display. (Pictures attached)

    Do you guys think that liquid managed to get into the Display and cause this issue?
    Likely hood of display issue being related to connect vs possible liquid inside of display?
    Bubbles nor display issues were present prior to the cleaning..

    Thanks for any help 1.jpg 2.jpg

    Highly likely the problem is related to the liquid damage, only solutions to replace the display, which in the case of Retina mean the entire top case will be replaced. Apple or a Mac specialist will also need to inspect the internals, beware Apple`s policy is to replace anything effected by the liquid ingress.

    Those photos remind me of when I overwet the display of my beloved Thinkpad T61 some years ago. It soon failed altogether, and that was a laptop consigned to history. Your first call has to be to the repair shop you dealt with, but I 've a feeling this is going to be expensive for you.
