MacBook Pro :: Finding Water Sensor Locations?

Jan 20, 2010

Since Apple has started putting these water sensors on almost all of their devices now, I am pretty sure that the unibody MBPs have them too (on portions exposed to the external environment; not just on the logic board and internal chasis).

I was wondering if anyone knew where they were located out of curiosity.

OS X Yosemite :: Finding Non-local Locations In Maps

Dec 9, 2014

When planning trips etc I, for obvious reasons, want to find locations in Maps that are not around the corner from where I currently am. Somehow I just cannot do this. Being in China looking for a city in e.g. Europe constantly yields the result 'No results found'. Either I have misunderstood how Maps works or this is not possible.

Hardware :: Finding USB IR Sensor Bar For Darwiinremote?

Jul 7, 2009

I'm curious if this would work with Darwiinremote or Remote Buddy for IR mouse movement on my Macbook. I tried a candle and I've seen the DIY guides (way out of my league). I tried the motion sensor movement and it was awkward, slow and imprecise.

Has anyone tried this or heard things about it?

MacBook Pro :: Why Does 15" Late 2011 Get Hot In Different Locations In The House

Jun 30, 2012

When I have it in my room it's maintains a cool temperature; but when at the desk, it gets extremely hot. I'm using Wi-fi.

Could it be the environment? The room is dark while the desk/office area is typically brightly lit.

Could it be the distance from the wi-fi access point? The wi-fi strength meter is always full although the room is closer to the access point than the office.

MacBook Pro :: Way To Figure Out Water Damage?

Dec 11, 2010

I have a Macbook that I was carrying in my backpack in one of those neoprene cases along with my water bottle (silly, I know...but it hasn't ever spilled prior to now!). I walked around for about 5-10 minutes at which point I noticed the bottom of my backpack was wet. I immediately opened it up and found that there was water on the bottom 2 inches of my case. I pulled my computer out and there was sort of a sheen of water on the front and back 2 inches on the side with all the ports. I then wiped it off. The screen came on when I opened it (it had not been off) but I turned it off and now I have it leaning so that if there is any water in the ports it will drain out.

MacBook Pro :: New Water Sensors On Casing

Oct 15, 2008

The new MacBook and MacBook Pro don't just want to impress you with their fancy new fabrication techniques, unibody designs and bolstered performance: they want to make you more honest, at least when it comes to reporting water damage. According to the service manuals, the new line of MacBooks include submersion sensors, designed to indicate if the laptops have been exposed to excessive levels of moisture and/or dropped in your toilet.

Phones, including Apple's own, have been fitted with these little stickers for years, but they're a rarity in laptops. You might want to think twice before you forget to mention the "used as a prop in an elaborate college drinking game" part on your next Applecare claim. [URL]

MacBook Air :: Spilled Water On Keyboard

Dec 1, 2008

Almost had a heart attack. I was in the other room and she screamed that she spilled water on it. I ran over, grabbed it, flipped it upside down, turned it off, used an air compressor and paper towels to get whatever water out. Let it off an open overnight and everything appears fine.

She can go back to using her 5 yr old hp brick of a laptop. My MBA is off limits.
And 2 months ago she broke her ipod (gift from me) running on a treadmill.

MacBook Pro :: Spilled Water On Trackpad - What To Do

Sep 23, 2009

Well it wasn't actually spilled. My friend was crying on it. Its hasn't been a good today, but anyways I got a fan on it and a hot halogen lamp on it. So far its doing well.

MacBook Pro :: Water Sensors Near / Under Trackpad?

Feb 27, 2010

My trackpad has been messing up lately, as in its not responsive all of the time as it once was. (13in mbp). I have the applecare shipping box ready but am curious as to where the water sensors are located nearest to the trackpad to determine if any water damage has occurred. I have no clue as to whether any liquid may have accidentally gotten in there, but nevertheless would love to check or something.

MacBook Air :: Excessive Water Damage?

May 7, 2012

My MacBook Air was not starting up so I sent it in for a repair. Just got a call that the logic board is corroded and there is excessive water damage. However, I have never split anything on my laptop nor has anyone else. I carry it around with me all the time. I thought at first it might be damage due to a shock as a dropped it a few months ago and it has a slight dent on a corner.

MacBook Pro :: Does The HDD Have Its Own Sensor?

Sep 14, 2010

I know the MBP has the motion sensor, im pretty sure this is built into the computer correct? and I know the stock hard drive had the option(cant quite remember but it had something to do with the motion) Does that option mean the HDD has the capability to stop due to motion using the MBP motion sensor or does the HDD have its own sensor?

MacBook Air :: Constant Reboot May Be Water Damage?

Dec 22, 2010

I got out the shower n pressed the pause button to stop the music. While that i notice couple of spot of water around my return button just a little. Nothing happened to the computer after using it for about 1 hours. So i left and came home around 7 hours later, got on the macbook air n then it kept prompting the shutdown menu option screen. From there it would just go to constant reboot. Is this due to water damage at all? or is it just a coincidence. Because my black macbook has had way more water on it before n its perfectly fine.

MacBook Pro :: Take Apart System To Try To Cure Water Damage

Oct 27, 2009

I drunkenly spill wine on my brand new 15" MacBook Pro and get convinced by my (also drunk) girlfriend to submerge the entire thing in plain white rice in order to magically suck the moisture out.The thing won't charge or power on three days of "drying" later. I came across one guy's post that completely taking the laptop apart (guided by an intricate YouTube video) and cleaning the internal components with a special alcohol would solve this nightmare for me. My question:Should I fess up to Apple (who I have ProCare with) or see what an independent repair

MacBook Pro :: Knocked Over Glass Of Water In The Dark

Dec 22, 2009

Knocked over a glass of water in the dark and a small puddle seeped under my MacBook pro - I quickly covered it I'm a towel and cleaned it up, it was barely wet at all, but when I tried to start it up the screen was blank. I blowdried it and tried again but still the screen is blank - when I boot it up the White light on the front turn on, the computer songs eerily quiet, the light goes off, then comes back on again, stays on and although the computer sounds like it's whirring it's still completely blank.

MacBook Pro :: Spilled Water - Unable To Turn On

Apr 3, 2010

I recently spilled water on my macbook pro and found that my left, right arrow and shift keys no longer worked. What I didn't realize is that my power button was affected as well (I tried shutting off my computer a week ago and it wouldn't). So, it usually rests on my desk, charged. Last night, however, I took it off and it discharged. I charged it and found that I couldn't turn it on anymore.

Is there any way to remotely turn on the computer? I was looking into something like a USB keyboard or remote, but can't decide for sure what to do.

MacBook Pro :: Any Diagram That Shows Water Sensors

MacBook Pro :: MBP Motion Sensor For SSD?

Apr 29, 2010

I have ordered several new MBPs (5 with SSDs...) for my clients, but have a mechanical HDD for myself in my new MBP; I just thought about the motion sensor that locks mechanical HDD read heads on sudden acceleration, and realized that it is an OS feature... Has anyone that has a mid 2010 MBP and a SSD noticed HDD lock in sudden movement with a SSD?

You can simulate this 'lock' by moving the MacBook suddenly when playing content from the drive... Has anyone seen the drive cause playback to halt for 2-3 seconds while the SSD 'recovers'? If so, this needs to be fixed...

MacBook Pro :: Water Spilled On Trackpad - Cannot Click / Scroll

Jan 11, 2011

I just spilled literally about four drops of water on my trackpad. However it was in the bottom left corner and some may have got through. When I rebooted (I know I panicked should not have turned it on 10 minutes later) It worked briefly and then I could not scroll or click. I have applecare, but I don't think it covers this.

MacBook :: Water Spilt On Laptop Now Not Recognizing Charger

Apr 29, 2009

I am the Apple guy at home. My older sister had our plastic macbook (with a incase purple cover on it) and spilt water on it. The battery was low too. So I connect the charger to it, and it doesn't recognize it. I took the case off, and checked it, but the innards are not wet, only the cover.

MacBook Pro :: Spilt Water - Power On But Screen Not Working

Sep 13, 2009

I spilt some water over my unibody MacBook Pro about 36 hours ago. It was dark, and as the screen didn't respond I assumed that it had shut down, but on closer examination the next morning (after turning it upside down) I found that it was still running. I shut it off then. There didn't seem to be much water inside the MBP, so I tried turning it on just now. It made all the right start-up noises, but nothing on the screen (the Apple logo also wasn't illuminated). I forced it to shut down again right after.

I'm not near a service centre at the moment, so am wondering if I should just wait a few more days, or get it sent in right away? I guess the fact that it starts-up is encouraging, so hopefully the damage is just limited to something connected to the monitor. No water was split over the LCD itself, but I'm guessing some may have entered at the back of the unit, where it connects to the main body. I did almost the exact same thing to my 3yo MB about 2 months ago, and it started working after about 3 days. I guess I should be more careful about what I put near my computer in future!
