How To Fix A Liquid Damaged Macbook Logic Board
Macbook Logic Board Repair
Has your Macbook suffered damage after a spill or accident involving liquid? This happens to thousands of Macbook owners every single day. While it's terrifying to think the entire contents of your laptop could be fried to oblivion, there is a good chance it can be fixed for a surprisingly reasonable price.
If you bring your machine to an Apple store or another computer repair service, they will most likely tell you it will cost LOTS of money to fix it. Most people report being quoted around $800-$1200+ just for the machine to be fixed! At that rate you might as well buy a new laptop all together. But that does not have to be the case! Don't allow retailers to manipulate you into buying MORE of their products just because they're not telling you of cheaper ways to fix the problem.
Fix Your Liquid Damaged Macbook
Recently my roommate took it upon herself to bathe my Macbook in a puddle of beer. It wouldn't turn on, it wouldn't charge, it was junk as far as I was concerned. I took it to a few places, had to PAY for quotes, and was told I'd be better off buying a new machine. I thought those answers were crap.
I am not a techie guru. I wouldn't know what a logic board looks like if it slapped me across the face. So buying the part and repairing it myself was not an option.
I found a seller on Ebay from Canada who runs a computer repair service. He claimed he could fix my liquid damaged Macbook for about $250. I was VERY skeptical. But the great thing about Ebay is the rating and reviews available for all sellers. Every customer review was overwhelmingly positive, and I decided I couldn't really go wrong for such a great price. If he was unable to fix it, I would be refunded the whole amount except for shipping costs.
About 2 weeks after shipping it to Canada, it arrived safe and sound and was working as good as new. The whole process was painless, affordable and SUCH a relief. I didn't lose a single one of my files. I couldn't believe what I had been told by Apple. They just wanted me to throw my Macbook away, bite the bullet and buy a new one.
There are people out there who can help you fix your water damaged Macbook. You will have to do some searching, but it's definitely worth it. I'm not saying this Canadian guy is the only one out there, but I definitely recommend his services.
