I want to fix a water damaged mac.
This is a hypothetical problem for a still learning mac repairman.
There are a lot of forums and help sites saying turn power off, dry out mac and cross your fingers. This forum is different.
Water damage is already done.
I know to clean off the connections on my ram with rubbing alcohol. But if that does not fix the problem, how do I go about fixing the water damaged parts?
Short of replacing the logicboard (assuming that was what was damaged) what can I do to fix the mac.
-What are the most commonly damaged parts when water is spilled? and how would you fix them?
-If the logic board was damaged. What exactly happens when water hits the logicboard and it "fries". Like what physical damage is caused and how can I reverse it?
I am skilled at saudering and not scared to go into the thick of the parts to fix the problem. I just dont know where to start finding the short.
Thank you for any hints, tips, suggestions, anything.
Is this a good question?
