Today we have had a MacBook Air A1466 come into us that won’t power up, no charge light from the power supply and no flicker of life on the screen. After checking the power supply is not the cause of the problem (although we discovered it was in fact the wrong voltage) we stripped the motherboard out of the machine suspecting a very common fault that is liquid damage.

As you can see by the image we found some!! Although this is only a small amount it was enough to warrant a full clean of the board and replacement of several components that were short to ground. Once replaced we got the expected readings from the former liquid damaged components and upon reassembly had a fully working Mac.

Although we can’t repair all liquid damage there is a lot that comes into us and leaves working so if you have a liquid damage issue with your MacBook or any tech device why not give us a try.
