What do you do if you accidentally spill liquids on your Macbook Pro? Many people’s first response if their Macbook shutdowns down no longer fully boots is that they have a water-damaged Macbook has suffered a short-circuit, and that is it permanently damaged and requires an expensive repair, such as a logicboad replacement.
Often this is what Apple would probably tell you. They will tell you that your logicboard, which is the main component inside your Mac is damaged and requires a $800 – $1000 replacement.
They are not wrong, this is an the most expensive option, however the damage can be reversed with proper professional service at a lower price of a logicboard replacement. MacBooks that have suffered water spills may have corroded parts, but they can be easily revived by chemical washes and by doing component level repairs on the board.
Using industrial cleaning machines with the right chemicals, corrosion on the logicboard can be removed. The board is then flushed with 99% alcohol to remove any water, moisture and impurities. It is then left to dry. The board is tested and any short-circuited chip on the logicboard is then removed and replaced.
