Macbook Pro 2018 Liquid Spill Repaired

Macbook Pro Repairs

This was a nightmare job, the customer spilt liquid over this Macbook I think it was a 2018 model. Anyway after spilling the liquid the customer thought they had got away with it.  This was until she let the battery run out and then attached the charger to the USB C charger socket.  From then the laptop was totally dead and would not charge in any way.

The chance of repair with a job like this is very small.  We started by taking out the motherboard and cleaned all the liquid off, from there we identified parts on the motherboard that had been damaged by the liquid and repaired these.  After everything dried out we reassembled the Mac and check it with a multi meter and everything seem fine……but is wasn’t.

On further investigation we found a problem with the USB C charging socket, repair wasn’t possible but we did manage to find a replacement.  After further checks before switching on you can see the result.  One saved Mac.

If you have a similar issue then please give us a call, we can usually help.
