MacBook and MacBook Pro Liquid Spill Recovery

Did you spill liquid on your MacBook or MacBook Pro? Has your MacBook or MacBook Pro now become an expensive brick because of the damage? MicroReplay has the answer! - MacBook and MacBook Pro Liquid Spill Repair!

MicroReplay is an independent, third-party repair company which is not in any way affiliated with Apple Computer, so you know our only motivation is to fix your MacBook, NOT just sell you a new one!

In most cases we can run your MacBook or MacBook Pro through our liquid spill recovery process and turn it from a paper weight back into a working laptop.

Usually we have available all necessary repair and replacement parts to repair your MacBook.

The Problem

When you spill liquid on a MacBook (or any laptop) and it gets on the logic board and other electronic parts inside, the minerals and salts in the liquid immediately begin to eat away at the metal and fiberglass that the parts are made of. If there is a power source available, such as a battery, which is supplying power to the system (even when the computer is turned off), the electric current will interact with the liquid and accelerate the corrosion process. This will cause the copper and other metals to migrate all over the board.

If you spill liquid on a computer, unplug immediately and remove the battery. This will help slow the process. Even still, there is usually a BIOS or PRAM battery on the board which supplies power to the board to keep the clock and other settings while it is off. This battery will also drive corrosion.

The Solution

The first thing we do with a liquid spill logic board is clean off whatever the liquid is. This is done correctly by cleaning the board in an immersion bath with industry-standard chemical solutions and using high-powered ultrasound to remove all the contaminates. This step is essential because unless you get all the liquid off, even from under the chips and other devices, the corrosion will continue and the board will -- guaranteed -- fail again. Without the ultrasound, there is no way to properly clean a board.

The next step is to repair any damage to the circuit board itself. This includes damaged masking, substrate damage, corroded etches and missing or damaged pads. Then we look for missing or damaged devices which must be repaired or replaced. These devices are truly tiny, some the size of a grain of sand. These steps are performed using a high-powered microscope and specialized soldering equipment. We also use specialized chemical compounds to repair the board itself.

Finally we might need to replace some of the Ball Grid Array (BGA) or QFN devices like the video processor, memory controller or some of the various power regulators or other chips. This step is done using specialized equipment which allows us to remove, align and replace these devices.

We Include a Warranty!

Once we get your board to start up and run, we run it though a burn-in process to make sure it works. We then put a six month warranty on it and ship it out!
