Do I need to reapply liquid metal?

I’m a computer repair tech and a customer brought in a PS5 that has a bad HDMI port, the customer sent the PS5 to Sony who said they can’t repair it because there is liquid damage I inspected the board and there is no liquid damage. Anyway do I need to reapply the liquid metal or is it fine to put everything back on without reapplying it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If you removed the heat sink, reapply liquid metal.

Sony spent years and a lot of money trying to apply liquid metal for a reason, you can’t skip it.
