Water under screen after spill, leaving marks
Hello there y’all!
The worst thing happened to me, when I managed to spill some tea into my MacBook Pro 16'‘ (I wrote a song about it, coming soon!
I immediately put it into a tent position, and tried to dry it, then drove it to an Apple Store for diagnostics. The diagnostics revealed there is no water damage on the logic board, as I turned it topside up right away, there was some water in the trackpad and keyboard, but nothing too serious, and my computer is running fine.
ACCEPT - me turning it into a tent position caused a huge water blotch on the left side of the screen. I found some forums, suggesting to run a python script and warm up the screen, and that it would dry on it’s own. I run folding at home at 100% CPU usage for most of the time now, and I have the screen facing the heater, and the spot is dramatically reduced.
However! - It led to a kind of strange effect, as most of the water evaporated, there are no signs of it when looking directly into the screen. When I tilt the screen, or look at it at an angle, there are bright spots left after where the water had been.
What do y’all think? Will it blend? (will it dry) or is there any way to fix this?
I also found an article here, on how to replace the screen (of a non-retina Pro), with heating the glass, using suction cups to lift it, and change the screen - do you think it would be beneficial (and possible) to do the same here, with me not replacing the screen, but gently blowing air under the glass to dry? Do you have any other suggestions?
Pictures attached, the situation now, and the original spill
