Rookie MAC Repair Tech Guy

by emmd

My Problem

User of the MAC liked to eat over their keyboard. Some keys didn't work, some liquid spills and food found inside. It is not a T.V. tray for God's sake...

My Fix

I am a PC repair guy. First time fixing a MAC. Nearly broke the release for the keyboard ribbon as it releases differently than what I found on PC laptops. I only broke half of it...so it still works. There are a million screws to remove. All told, probably took 1 hour. First time is a charm...now I know what I am doing.

My Advice

Take your time...if you get stuck...think it through. Careful with the ribbon releases...make sure you know which way they release.
