I spilled tea on my MacBook Pro!
I spilled tea on the macbook, and still working yet.
Is it possible to clean it?
I need advice please
@maximc clean it ASAP with 95%+ isopropyl if you don't have an ultrasonic cleaner, don't leave it to dry; the liquid is still going to be on the logic board, and corrosion will occur gradually when it is next turned on. Leaving it to dry, air out or putting it in rice does not do anything to clean the liquid inside the MacBook.
Don't know what you're talking about @oldturkey03, we use hairdryers when doing logic board repairs all the time. Feel sorry for all the fools who pay for an expensive hot air station ;)
@maximc - You're in a bit of a pickle here! Sugary drinks spilled into the keyboard leave a tacky mess! While a small spill caught quickly can be dealt with, leaving it stew makes a bigger mess and a large spill can get all the way into the logic board messing it up! Again, Sprite also has acids in it which over time will corrode so it to needs to be properly cleaned.
But, here you may end up needing to replace the keyboard assembly as its too difficult to clean.
As to Rice & Silca Gel forget them! They don't work with spills! This is an urban legend, it has no truth behind it. What they do help is remove condensing moisture within the air.
Turn it off as soon as possible. If you can, open it up, unclip the battery, dry it off as much as possible, put it in front of a fan and let it sit for a week. DO NOT USE A HAIRDRYER!!! They can desolder your logic board. or use some proper equipment to clean.
The tea went down the corner of the monitor , I turn it on it’s side immediately, however it done something to the monitor, it boots up perfectly and I can see very faint graphics in background how can I fix this I need this fixed ??
Ok, this sounds crazy, but it works. My mother spilled beer on her MacBook Air. She put it in a box and forgot a out it. 2 months later it dried out and worked
