Water Damage - Display + Battery Issue

Hello ifixit!

So the other day a full glass of water tipped onto the keyboard of my Macbook 13. I was quick to act with paper towel, empty the water upside down and turn off immediatly. For 48hrs I kept the computer off with the bottom panel open, battery unplugged and constant fan setup with rice.

The good news is today I was able to successfully power on the computer normally with all trackpad/ keyboard functionality. However there was a quick flash from the screen and then went to black, so I went ahead and plugged in the HDMI port into a monitor, and voila there was still a signal from the GPU. If I had to guess it seems something not with the screen but perhaps the connecting cable.

There also seems to be a problem with that battery as the charger shows it's at 100%, but the computer shuts off instantly when taking off the power adapter. Oddly enough though all the battery information is displayed in the System Report.

On the logic board I see a couple of 2 -5mm water stains. Would it be wise for me to clean with 99% isopropyl on these stains as a potential solution for fixing the screen issue + battery issue? Or do you think these might be deeper issues that need the battery + screen to be replaced.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If there are water stains, clean them with alcohol and make sure there is no water in the battery area as your battery may be damaged and could be the source of problems.

Thanks for the reply! Should I completely disconnect battery and conduct some tests with the power adapter attached after cleaning stains with the alcohol to try and isolate it?


Yea that would be a start :D

Water mainly destructs the regular main of electricity on motherboard traces. Removing any and all water is needed to get the machine working again.
