Liquid on Your Laptop? Don’t Fret

If your laptop is having problems because liquid was spilled on it, we may be able to repair it. If it is still wet, immediately remove the battery, and bring it to us as quickly as possible. Having liquid spilled on a laptop may simply damage the keyboard, or nothing at all once it dries. It all depends on what kind of liquid it was, and where it went.

Repairing laptops that have had liquid short out the system board is extremely difficult, but we are able to repair about 50% of the heavily damaged laptops we get in. The odds may be slightly better than 50% but we don’t want to give unfortunate customers unrealistic expectations. The process we use to repair liquid damaged system boards is to remove the system board, and clean it thoroughly using many different solvents, and methods. In many cases we can find the component that failed, and we can then replace it. This is very difficult work, troubleshooting liquid shorted laptop system boards, but it is what we specialize in. Few companies even try to repair shorted system boards.

Broken Powerjack?

One of the most common laptop problems we see at Seattle Laptop is a broken powerjack. When you plug in your laptop’s adaptor, it connects to a small plastic and metal piece soldered to the system board. (in most cases) If the adaptor cord is pulled, while plugged into the laptop, this small plastic piece can easily be broken. For your laptop to properly connect to power, this piece (the power jack) would need to be repaired, or replaced. Most manufacturers would consider this a reason to completely replace the system board, especially since this repair can be difficult.

In most cases we can repair the damage, without our customer actually needing to purchase a new system board. This saves our customers hundreds of dollars, and time lost replacing their laptop. This repair is not easy, and the area where the power jack attaches to the system board is quite often damaged also. This damage would also need repaired, even if it means replacing the traces in the system board.

Quite often when the power jack breaks, it shorts out other components on the system board, and these will also need to be replaced. Most of our competitors that claim they “fix” power jacks do not have the equipment, tools, replacement parts, or expertise to properly fix a system board that was shorted when the power jack broke.
