I recently fixed a water damaged (actually it was baby saliva) smartphone that had stopped charging when plugged in. Just like you, I was quoted a significant fraction of the original purchase price to even look at it, so figured there had to be a better way. So a squirt of contact lubricant (WD40 in my case) went in the USB port. That was a few months ...

Considering you're likely out of warranty anyway, depending on where you live, you could use a third-party repair shop. I've had mixed results with repair shops, but I have found one where I live which I would now trust to repair my MBP. In my case, this is a place that only deals in refurbished equipment. Unlike another 3rd party Mac shop whose main ...

If you have any warranty from Apple on the MB you should know that once your computer is "marked" with water damage the warranty voids. They even have a white thingy inside all the MB's that gets yellow when it touches any liquid - if they open the laptop and it's yellow - there goes your warranty. I would say the best way is to get a new battery and ...

You're lucky to have gotten off so lightly. Apple will quote high prices for water damaged items as they can't predict the severity of the damage. Replace the battery and your MacBook should be fine. I did a battery replacement a couple of years back for a friend who'd spilled whiskey over his trackpad. The whiskey had penetrated the battery causing the same ...

I would say that you would need to go ahead and use the Genius Bar option to repair your computer. My reasoning is that water damage can cause errors in strange ways that, upon first glance, seem to be straight forward, but are in fact impossible to properly diagnose without professional diagnostic equipment. For example, in your case, I doubt that the ...

Problem Solved The battery was fine and the problem was with the charger. It seems that the charger couldnt transmit enough power to charge the computer while it was in use. I opened the casing of the charger and observed that 2 capacitors were swelled. I changed them with new ones (I found then in a video receiver). Now its working like the first day I got ...

At boot, it was having a problem in finding any users accounts, so it offered to create a new one. In process of doing so, it repaired it self when it found out there are already users.

In order to set the TX Power you need an older version of the Airport utility which is available here. Navigate to your base station > Manual Setup > AirPort > Wireless > Wireless Network Options. Once there, choose a transmit power that’s lower than 100% (you can choose between 10%, 25%, 50%, and 100%). Remember to Update your configuration when you’re ...

Personal experience, I've never it. But USB specification actually has defined such standard, under USB On-The-Go (OTG). A connector named Micro-AB plug will allow a device to be charged and enter host mode. This is also mentioned here on another Stack Exchange site. Back to the question, is it possible? Probably no. According to this Wikipedia article ...

Status says 'Check Battery'. Looks like time for a new one, maybe? Potential cycle count for that machine is 1000, & you're pretty near that figure. Source: Mac notebooks: Determining battery cycle count

Try disconnecting the adapter from the plug and rotating it 180 degrees. Not sure why it works, but it works.
