Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook

2 Answers

Macbook Leaking Hello to all MacBook Owners, This is a very weird problem it's a first for me. There's some kind of liquid that is coming out from the battery latch area. I have no idea what it is, or if it's dangerous. Am I the only one that has this problem? Please tell me that I'm not and that Apple will fix this. If you have a similar problem please let me know, maybe we can get Apple to fix it.

    i had problem like this

  • ilmmb Aug 16, 2008

    I have the same exact problem. I took it to apple genius bar and they confirmed that it wasn't battery acid or coolant, but they didn't know what else it could be. Then I spoke with Apple over the phone and they told me it was glue. I don't know really what to believe. Does anyone think this could really be glue coming from the battery latch?? Because the liquid that comes out of mine is clear and oily.

This is a quite common problem.

This liquid is a coolant, when the mac works for many hours & heats up the coolant will start leaking out, it's not battery acid.

You better head to your dealer, I don't know what Apple are doing about it, but I sure hope they'll fix it.

I have Macbook pro and spill water.It is now 6days and dying out.Very hard to remove battery as Macbook has 6-8 screws to remove batteryMac book is only year old.Is there any easy way to start without


Was it just water or was there any salt or sugar in the liquid water? Did you set the Macbook vertical ( so the water would not sit on the motherboard?
BTW: The first thing you should have done after water spillage was to remove power and the battery!

If you have issues with the warranty, there are third party places that will find our what's wrong. If you want to do it yourself, the good news is, it's not too hard to open it. Here is an iPad Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPad. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair NYC.

When I turn my MacBook air on a blank White screen


Leave the Macbook air turned on until the battery goes dead. Then Connect to power and start it up. That should solve the problem. You problem was caused by not letting an update install in full.

Macbook screen blotches


If you go to turn on your laptop and loads to your os and the spots on the screen remain there then most likely you have ruptured the liquid crystals in the screen by pressing too hard when you were cleaning the screen with the computer off. you could lightly touch the black spots with your finger and if it displaces the black with a white halo effect around your finger (DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD OR WITH FINGERNAILS DIRECTLY ON THE SCREEN) then it will mean that you will have to replace the screen because it has busted the crystals definately.

The "m", "u", and "7" keys do not work on my MacBook.


hello, It looks like the liquid went inside. You can open the Top case that holds the keyboard and see if you find liquid. If yes, let it dry near a heat source. If not, you'll probably have to change the keyboard... Best regards

Cracked keyboard


Are you sure it's a macbook and not an ibook? The macbook has an embedded kebboard. It's ribbon cable and connectors are inside of the laptop as opposed to the ibook, which is installed on the top case. The Ibook did have issues with the clear or green ribbon cable squeezing up from under the right side.
