spilled milk but everything working except a dozen keys not working

My daughter spilled milk on my MacBook Pro 5 days ago and we cleaned it as much as we can but the liquid was all over the keyboard.

After shoving it into rice bag for 3 days I pulled it out and it seems everything is working except a dozen keys are either not type what it supposed to or typing some weird characters.

I have to use external keyboard. How do I fix my keyboard? any ideas?

Well, you fell for it! Rice or any other desiccant will not remove liquids this is an old urban legend.

The thought was if it can take moisture out of the air then it can do the same for something thats sopping wet!

Sadly, it only pulls moisture out of the air and even letting the equipment to dry out on its own will not remove the solids thats in the drink or even water (salts & minerals) all of which over time eat away at your delicate electronics.

For now disconnect the battery and keep your system cool until you have the time to properly clean your system. The sooner the better!

1. Rice does nothing. Literally nothing!

2. Your going to have some corrosion issues down the line on the board. It's inevitable, unless you clean things up.

3. Your keyboard issue is probably just that, a bad keyboard... Not impossible to replace the keyboard on this model. Yes, it's a pain but not impossible. The keyboard is held in by 50 or so screws and/or rivets that you will need to cut out and replace with screws -- Thank Apple Engineers for that wonderful idea --

4. You will need to pull out the board and the I/O board to get to the keyboard so a good ultrasonic cleaning of the board would definitely be something to look into -- if that fails, a soft toothbrush and some 91% isopropyl alcohol should work fine.

5. Prolonging cleaning of the motherboard is just going to cause more problems. I'd pull the bottom cover off and unplug the battery and get that board cleaned ASAP. You got lucky.. It still turns on. Most Retina's we see here aren't so lucky and have board issues after a spill.

This is the indicative of liquid damage to the MacBook. It’s better just to use an external keyboard, like you’re doing. If you want to fix your keyboard, it’ll be a long, grueling, and nearly impossible process. I can’t find any specific fix for your problem.

thanks, I will take it to the apple store and see what they say. I'm sure it's going to cost me a lot of dough..


If you take it to the Apple store they will tell you it's liquid damaged and it's a tier 3 repair. Avoid that place like the plaque. Not only do they deliver poor customer service in regards to liquid damaged devices, their techs are incompetent. They will day it's unfixable.. IT's NOT!!!!
