MacBook Pro :: Liquid Indicators Sensitivity - Would Washing The Keyboard Do It

Apr 27, 2010

I'm considering buying a new MBP, and I'm wondering about the chances that washing the keyboard with a little bit of water on a cloth would trip the LSIs. Is there a "safer" way to get rid of dust and the like?

MacBook Pro :: Can Adjust The Keyboard Backlight Sensitivity

Aug 23, 2009

Just got a new MBP 15" AG this week and was wondering if you can adjust the sensitivity of the keyboard backlight. It seems to come on even in a fairly well lit room and I mainly only need it in a completely dark room. So I find myself hitting the backlight keys to turn it off and then whenever it wakes from sleep goes back to full bright. Didn't find anything in the keyboard preferences and found a program called Lab Tick which will take care of the level on wake.

MacBook Pro :: Setting Keyboard Sensitivity - Lack Of Response

Nov 7, 2010

I had a look today at various models of the MBP, I must say I like everything about them except the keyboard, to touch type on it, it feels very cheap, very "lack of response". I am a fast touch typist, and I am used to bashing out 60+ wpm, however I found on all the models I tired, 13,15 and 17 the keyboard is all much of a much. I found typing fast that characters don't appear on the screen.

I assume somewhere in the options there are settings to change the keyboard sensitivity? That's really the only thing putting me off buying one, well apart from also deciding what screen size to get. Portability vs. Screen Size. I wish Apple offered an i7 version of the 13" MBP, that would make the choice easy.

MacBook Pro :: How To Check For Liquid Spill Damage (Keyboard)

Jan 15, 2010

I've notice the bottom arrow on my arrow keys, located on the bottom right corner of the keyboard doesn't have as springy of a bounce as it once did. About 3 days ago I got the impression it kinda felt a bit sticky. Having a baby brother I'm fearing the worst. The performance of my MBP hasn't changed at all, however having only 4 months left allowed to purchase and extend AppleCare I wouldn't want to buy it for no reason. That and I always like to rest assured my Mac is in pristine condition.

OS X :: Keyboard Advice Needed After Liquid Damage

Mar 22, 2010

My problem stems from spilling milk on the keyboard of my mid 2007 white Macbook, and being forced to turn it back on a few hours later because I had to turn assignments in. So, luckily the hard drive and data seem to be fine, but the keyboard has widespread problems of keys not working or phantom sticking. Typing is possible but just too bad for continued use as. What I was wondering is my best option now that I'm here. it seems like my choices are getting my keyboard replaced, using a usb keyboard, or waiting another 24 hours and hoping they dry out, though I'm assuming they're shorted. None of these ideas seem great, and I couldn't find reliable information on how much a Macbook keyboard replacement costs. I'm downright terrible when it comes to disassembling and reassembling computers, but if nothing else is palatable can give it a try. Just looking for the best possible option terms of convenience and cost.

MacBook Pro :: Does MBP Have External Charge Indicators

Dec 6, 2009

I have a 3 year old macbook, one feature I love about it is the charge indicators on the battery that let you see at an instant how much power the battery has when it is charging, without opening the macbook.

Do the current 13" MBP's have this feature?, I'm just wondering if having a built in battery mean it has lost this great feature? also do current MB's have this ability?

I wouldn't mind upgrading my MB, but if it means loosing the battery indicator feature I'll probably just keep using it until it dies.

Applications :: Fading/washing Out When I Scroll On External Monitor?

Feb 23, 2010

On my external monitor (does not happen on the MBP screen) and just in Safari, on any page when I scroll, the entire page progressively fades or washes out until the entire window is white minus a few images that fade to yellow and black. See attached screenshot of Resizing resets the picture to normal, but problem persists if I scroll again.

Anyone experiencing this? Tried to update but software is up to date.

OSX 10.6.2
Safari Version 4.0.4 (6531.21.10)
Macbook Pro 13"

OS X :: How To Actually Remove The Indicators From The Dock

Mar 11, 2010

i was wondering if anyone knew how to actually remove the indicators from the dock. I'm able to know what applications are open without it through constantly using apple-tab, but I really want my dock to not show the little indicators. And no I don't mean make them bigger or smaller etc. because I've already discovered how to do that by looking up how to remove them :P (didn't find anything).

MacBook Air :: Corrosion On The Motherboard From Liquid Damage?

Apr 22, 2010

I sent in my MBA for repair last week to a repair depot, and they say that there is corrosion on the motherboard from liquid damage. The problem with me is that the computer has never had any contact with liquids, especially in the area where the motherboard is. Can anyone show me where the corrosion is on this?

OS X Mountain Lion :: Internet And Server Indicators Showing Connection Loss

Jun 21, 2014

Configuration: I have the latest iMac running Mountian Lion. I connect via WiFi to a Linksys modem that is connected to my ISP's WiFI modem which connects to a tower a few miles away which, in turn, connects to the ISP's processors somewhere nearby.  

On the network diagnostics Network status  there are indicators for WiFi, WiFi settings, Network Settings, ISP, Internet and server. 

Occasionally the internet and server indicators go to yellow and then red resulting in no connection. I have reset the Linksys, the ISP WiFi modem, both and it does not seem to make any difference. Eventually the Internet and Server indicators return to green and the connection is restored. When they are yellow or red, it affects all processors in the house (iMac, Macbook Pro, iPad, iPod, etc).

MacBook Pro :: Sealed Keyboards To Prevent Against Liquid Damage?

Jul 1, 2009

I work at our university support desk, and the other day we had a girl bring her macbook pro in. The twist is that she did not shut her mbp off and carried it over open in a downpour. Needless to say it was absolutely drenched. Fortunately the computer suffered no side affects. I personally have spilled a drink on mine (I proceeded to turn it off and remove the battery) but I suffered no side affects. So out of curiosity, do MBs/MBPs have sealed keyboards to prevent against liquid damage?

MacBook Pro :: Get Liquid Between The Aluminum And Plastic Of Apple Logo On Lid?

May 8, 2010

I installed an invisible shield on my macbook pro, and was concerned about how suceptible it may be to get water, or another liquid in the top of the lid via the apple logo? You spray the solution on the shield and then squeegee it around with some force, is it possible to get liquid inside the case via this boundary? Even something like a spray lcd cleaner or a damp cloth? How well sealed is the transition between the aluminum and the plastic of the logo?

MacBook Pro :: Typical Cost To Repair Liquid Damage On It?

May 5, 2012

I spilled about a tablespoon of windex onto the keyboard of my 1.66 i7 MBP.  Of course it was on when it happened. I turned it off and flipped it over for a few hours.  I was getting ready to go out of town when it happened so I had to close it up and take it on a plain with me.  When i got to my destination the next day I tried to start it up and it was dead.  I have since read all of the I should have done, but didn't.   

I was looking to get an idea of the different cost scenarios to get it fixed.  Like if it needs a new logic board, etc...  I understand it might be better to get a new computer but I don't have 2800 for another 17'' MBP.

MacBook Air :: Liquid Metal Is Very Light Weight And Still Strong At The Same Time?

Aug 30, 2010

I read that this liquid metal is very light weight and still strong at the same time.

But wondered how it looks.. Is it glossy like stainless steel or brushed as the aluminium used on iPad and MacBook Pros? How dark is it?

There has been alot talking about a Carbon Fibre MBA, as it would take some of the weight - could this be it in stead?

MacBook :: Uni Late 09 Liquid Damage - Upper Case Replacement

Sep 23, 2010

Being the poor college kid that I am, and knowing a bit about hardware repair, I've been buying macbooks on craigslist, etc. and reselling them. I just got a Polycarbonate Macbook that had liquid spilled on (she said it was iced tea). It wouldn't turn on so I checked out the logic board and I cleaned it with alcohol although it seemed clean. I noticed during this that the LED on the power adapter was green, though very dim. When I unhooked the cable connecting the upper case, it turned bright green. Basically what I'm wondering and now that I think about it its probably a stupid question, since I have no way of testing this until I buy a new upper case is do you think it's worth it to try and fix or should I sell it?

MacBook :: Liquid Spill - Screen Replaced And Whole Computer Diagnosed

Apr 17, 2009

Spilled a vanilla latte all over it about 3 weeks ago. Screen immediately screwed up (lighting issues, pixels....the whole works). Apple wanted $800 flat to "begin" to fix it. If the logic board had one drop of liquid on it, it'd jump to $1240. Sent it to, and got the screen replaced and the whole computer diagnosed - with shipping included - for $325. Arrived today. Looks PERFECT. Kudos to that company. I'm really impressed.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp 3.1 - Trackpad Sensitivity

Is the trackpad sensitivity still a problem for anyone else with a MacBook Pro? I'm using Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) on a 2008 Penryn non-UB, and downloaded/installed the new 3.1 update manually and the Trackpad is still incredibly sensitive with accidental clicks galore and "dragging". What options do you have under the Trackpad tab, on the Bootcamp 3.1 Control Panel? I have:

One Finger:

OS X :: Mouse Sensitivity Settings Keep Resetting?

Aug 1, 2010

I use a Razer Deathadder and ever since I've started using it I've had to reset my sensitivity settings (via Apple -> System Preferences -> Mouse) after every system restart. I've read a bit about it online, some seem to think that deleting the Razer driver would work, but it hasn't for me. Any ideas on why the settings keep getting changed back to default?

MacBook Pro :: Mini DisplayPort Stopped Working After Liquid Spill - Options?

Apr 28, 2012

So I spilled a small amount of tea on the left hand side of my MacBook Pro a few weeks ago.  I immediately disconnected the power adaptor, forced shut down and placed the laptop level in a warm, dry area for several days to dry out.  On boot up everything performed normally, and has done since, except that when I tried to connect my laptop to my TV last week, nothing happened.  I use a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adaptor and normal VGA cable to connect to my tv, and have done this many times before with no issues.  The laptop normally automatically recognises that an external display is connected and outputs a video signal - an extended display under OSX Snow Lion, or a mirrored display under Windows 7 Ultimate x64 running in Boot Camp - now literally nothing happens, the laptop does not seem to recognise or react to the fact that the display is connected, and no video signal is output. 

My laptop is covered under AppleCare, but I realise that, as this is almost certainly liquid damage, there is probably little that can be done to have this fixed on my AppleCare.  What are my options?  I don't wish to pay out of pocket for what could potentially be a costly repair, but if there is a possibility to get the Mini DisplayPort working again I would like to explore it.

MacBook Pro :: Mid 2010 Had Accidental Liquid Spillage But Still Turns On But The Screen Is Black?

May 26, 2012

It was just an accidental liquid spill, but however my macbook pro has been acting up before all this mishap with the graphics. I thought is was just nothing so I didn't care to bring it to an apple store but when I had to bring it and check it out using the Nvidia video test it presumed a failed video card. The genuius said it will take 2 weeks to be fix until several days later I recieved a call saying it can not be fix due to a foreseen amount of liquid damage. I've spilt other liquid items but wiped it off the keyboard quickly and it still worked. I'm using my MBP right now with an external monitor, it still works fine but with the issue of the screen being pitch black.

PowerPC :: Liquid Damage G4 Ibook?

Nov 5, 2008

I shut it down, popped out the keyboard and sopped up what I could find. When I started it up again, it started fine but in safe boot mode.

Keyboard is fried, obviously (which is how I got the machine in the first place, from someone who did the exact same thing and bought a new one rather than replace the keyboard), and I'm getting no airport detected and no sound output device detected.

My question is, does this mean the airport and soundcard are fried, or is there something else going on? I need help figuring out what parts to replace other than the keyboard.
