About retina display staingate issues

Do you think the MacBook Pro retina 2015 display can be replaced its display inside of a once liquid damaged system? I spilled lots of iced coffee before, but cleaned it up so it's working fine now.

So technically water logged problem didn't cause any problem except that made water logged sticker turned red.

I really need to get my screen repaired. I'm thinking of visiting genius bar around Portland.

So share some information if you have any. thanks!

Sadly once the liquid damage stickers have turned Red you'll have a hard time getting Apple to fix the system and many Apple authorized service centers may tell you they won't honor any repair warranties. So its at your own risk if the system works very long once you have it back after repairs. You might go further with the Apple authorized service center I would try them first.

Don't forget Apple won't honor the extended warranty that had for the bad screens Apple extending coverage of Retina MacBook displays with ‘Staingate’ issue as your systems liquid damage voided it. Sorry ;-{

With that said are you handy with a screw driver? Replacing the display on your own is not that difficult. Here is the IFIXIT guide: MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Early 2015 Display Assembly Replacement and heres the needed part: MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Early 2015) Display Assembly
