    I purchased April 20th 2015.
    Have liquid damage on Macbook Pro.
    Fixed by myself however there is problem with Battery.
    Apple have sticker inside that detect if its liquid damage.
    What should I do Fool the Genius Bar technician and give it try for Free repair ?
    Or fix it by myself?

    I'm hoping you answered your own question.

    Pay the cash, get them to repair it. You risk voiding the warranty if you fix it yourself.

    Learn from the expensive mistake and keep liquids/food away from your computer.

    Give the genius bar a try, i spilt water on my Macbook Air when i had only had it 3 weeks, i played dumb and they fixed it for free because i'd only had it a few weeks plus they only detected slight water damage. Worst case is they tell you how much to repair it.

    Should you try to con Apple - at the expense of everyone else? No.

    Should you fix it by yourself? No.

    Take it to Apple, tell them - honestly - what happened and pay whatever is required to have it repaired correctly, such that you can continue to benefit from the remaining hardware warranty term.
