Put the macbook in a warm and dry place for a few days. If that doesn't help open the macbook and clean/brush and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Macbook. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party Repair Services.

By all means do not turn it on.....u might fry something. Leave it in a dry hot area for like 2 says. Then you might have to take it to Apple because Mac's are very very picky about water, i spilled coke and it fried it!

Tip

Mac Repair Disk


Mac OS Repair

To run Disk Utility on apple macbook OS X 10.4.x, you must start the computer using an Apple Software Restore disc.

Insert the disc into the computer, restart.

After you hear the startup sound, press and hold the "C" key. Hold the key until you see the gray Apple logo.

Your computer will take longer to startup, be patient, this is completely normal. After the CD or DVD is loaded it will automatically start the OS installer, do not reinstall your OS system!

If you are requested to choose a language, just click the right arrow button (Next).

To open the Disk Utility Click on Utilities > Disk Utility.

Now the Disk Utility window should be open. Choose from the left side of the window the hard drive you wish to repair (in this case Macintosh HD).

Make sure that the First Aid tab is selected.

Click Repair Disk button (bottom right).

The tool will check your hard drive, if it encounters any problems it will list them in the middle of the window, otherwise you'll receive this message - "The volume Macintosh HD appears to be OK".

Once the scan is over if it found problems, click again on Repair Disk, this will try to repair the problems, if not successful you need a more advanced utility tool.

How do I open Forces War Records on Apple Mac desktop


Need to know what happens when you insert the cd? Is the message "disc unreadable"? Here are some suggestions-be sure the disc drive is working...insert another disc known to work. If the message asks what to do with the disc, choose ignore. Then go to disc utility and try mounting it from there. Worst case-open it on a Windows machine and transfer the file via a USB thumb drive.

STEPS ON HOW TO TROUBLESHOOT MY LAPTOP THAT FELL INTO WATER


As long as you didn't try to turn it on yet AND it was NOT on when it fell in to the water there is a chance it will still work.

Pull the battery, put it in a big container and fill\cover it with rice. The rice will absorb the moisture. Leave it in there for at least 5 days straight and then try it. But just in case have a fire extinguisher ready.

This works with cell phones, maybe you'll get lucky.

Force eject CD from Macbook


A few ways of doing this

restart mac and press down the trackpad after you hear the startup noise

if that does not work try opening up disk utility and click on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject

or open up terminal found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in
drutil tray eject and then press return

Finally what to do is try pick up your macbook tilt the macbook to the one side and press the eject key and hopefully the effect of gravity will allow the CD to fall out.


Hope this helps.

I spilled water on my MacBook. Now it won't turn out


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

CDs get stuck in the slot of my mac mini---3 years old.


Ok, let's go through the options in case you have missed one. Command E, Open Finder and click eject button next too it's name, dragging the item to trash, press F12, or hitting eject on the keyboard. If none of those work make sure the drive is not just busy. Sometimes you have to wait a few seconds even after stopping the application. You can use Disk Utility in Applications/Utilities to eject a CD. Open Terminal and type drutil tray eject If that fails, in Terminal type drutil list and then look at the list and find the drive. Tyoe drutil tray eject 1 The 1 should be replace with whatever drive # you found in the list.

Onkyo 6 disc cd changer DX-380 has CD stuck under carousel


This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!
