What part of my display got damaged?
I spilled coffee over my 2015 MacBook Air last summer. Apple told me everything was messed up, but after disassembly I cleaned everything with alcohol and got it back to running. However, I did not remove the display when I cleaned (soaked in alcohol) the keyboard. Stupid me... The display must have gotten in contact with the liquid and now it looks like this.
What is it that I need to exchange for the display to be normal again and where do I get it? Is it the lcd?
Apple resellers won't sell parts to me and won't repair it, since I opened it myself and lost warranty - which I lost due to the water damage anyhow...
Thank you guys so much and regards from Germany!
Sorry, maybe I should have described what I meant in more detail. On that picture it should be clearer though:
I am talking about both in the left and the right corner. There is more brightness and you see "blurry" changes in color intensities. You can definitely see a line that goes from e.g. the right third of the bottom of the screen in a quarter circle to the middle of the right part of the screen. It's similar on the left.
So I think something with the background light is wrong. Or is it the entire LCD? I don't know too much about displays, my apologies.
The entire computer is still usable. Also the display works fine, it's just quite annoying and I want to know if I can fix it somehow.
Is this a good question?
