Spilled coffee on MacBook Pro 2.66ghz
hi Im new to this site but Ive seen that it is highly recommended. a week a go I spilled coffee on my MacBook Pro well actually spilled coffee on the right side where the power botton is and on top of the speaker... the mac is protected with a iskin keyboard protector...dont think any coffe enter in the keyboard... but the mac shut down and the fans where going full steam could hear them. also had a ispeek cover protecting the body. i flipped it up side down after and notice that no coffe came out of the keyboard and from the fans also nothing came out.. no liquid.. but smelled coffee from the machine. A few hours after the machine turned on and everything worked great but when i put a cd ó dvd in the super drive it doesnt eject the disc it reads the disc fine My question is I have a insurance policy here in spain bought the mac at Corte Ingles Malaga in Jan 2010 it only has 5 months going on 6!!! my seguro covers every type of accident except if its stolen apple doesnt cover liquid spills
I called them and they said they would pick it up could take about 2 weeks o 4 weeks to fix it o if they see that in the long run it will fail possible change it for a new one..
Should i risk sending it to them and let them fix it, Im a musician and work the whole time with my mac....would it better to let tem fix it o risk the time factor..ahh also near the power button after hours of use it makes a small noise like a sping is being realesed.. what should i do...
좋은 질문 입니까?
was anything in the coffee?
Sugar... but not sure how much..most of the coffee spilled on the desk under the printer....and under the MacBook Pro but still im a bit worried. ive tried everything to eject the disc...but nada.....it is sunday evening here in spain and monday morning going to call my seguro. should i be worried.
or just let the insurance take its course and hope nothing is wrong..mybe it just needs a good cleaning...i hope or thay might have to replace the superdrive....and some parts
ok its now 10 at night here in spain and my mac just ejected my disc....?
Not sure what to do everything else looks fine and works ok...it´s not over heating or anything..but I´m going to work on video right now to see if it over heats..the name of my insurance company is called Groupama Seguros. They cover liquid spills..do you think i should send it to them to check it o fix any parts damaged? I´ve heard of stories that after 6 months the computer could stop functioning...due to the spill. my seguro is 6 month free Im in the 5 month ...in june it will be 6 months. i extended.....to make sure if something happened to my mac it would be covered. so after june I will be paying a quote for extending the seguro another 6 months. need some advice quickly since this mac is basicaly my whole office...help!
