Of all the ways you could damage a MacBook, this is probably the trickiest to fix. A garden-variety liquid-damaged MacBook mostly has a faulty motherboard, sometimes in conjunction with other faulty parts - display, speakers, battery etc. Along with repairing skills, one needs a good sense of judgement - which parts should be repaired, which replaced? How much money is worth investing on the repair given the MacBook’s stability and longevity? Should we attempt servicing an impacted, yet functional part? We provide transparency and details, along with our recommendation, so that you, the customer is part of all the decision-making.
Time is money. Fixxo repairs fast, ergo it saves you money only, no? Ok. We are an exclusive Apple service center, MOST parts are usually in ready stock.
All things considered, the quality of service is only as good as the expertise of the repairman. Workmanship matters!
At Fixxo, we use only the highest quality spare parts. All repairs carry a min. 90 days warranty. Not just a working device, peace of mind is paramount too!
I was also skeptic at first since they are not authorised by Apple and all. But having spilled water on my one day old MacBook Pro 15" (Yeah! I know!), I decided to trust them with my laptop and I did not regret it. Water damage is not covered in Apple warranty and if I took it to service centre, they would have charged me a fortune for sure. Would recommend it.
Excellent service and value for money When compared to Apple care people.
They charge really less and service is extremely awesome!
I accidentally spilled water on my MacBook Air. When I went to the imagine apple service centre, they asked me to pay more than the cost of the laptop itself. I had no option other than to giving it to someone other than Apple. This was the time I came across Fixxo. They repaired the laptop in 1 week, it had logic board issues and charged me Rs. 7.5k which is very reasonable. I recommend Fixxo for any Apple product related service you need.

Ideally, yes, you should. If you don’t, you should be aware of the possibility of the MacBook developing issues anytime in the near, or far future.
“Liquid Damage” does not essentially imply you have spilled liquid on the device. It could happen through really minor exposure too. Think back - did you clean the device with a wet cloth, or keep the laptop near a window while it was raining, or work very close to an air cooler? If nothing, it could still happen due to environmental moisture over a period of time esp. in Indian conditions. It is surprisingly common.
Yes. It is observed quite often that exposure to liquids has a delayed impact on the device. The liquid dries out but leads to formation of fungus or corrosion on the logic board, which causes issues over time.
You may need to get the keyboard replaced. Also, it is advisable to get the motherboard serviced as well. Contact us to discuss further.
Sorry we do not have the option of a temporary / standby device at the moment.
Liquid exposure on MacBooks most often leads to logic board damage. However the best (and only) thing recommended is to bring the MacBook to our service center for diagnosis. None of the home remedy hacks (read: stick it in a bag of rice) work! Let the experts handle.
We shall take a day or two to diagnose the device and then revert to you with price & time estimation. If you're ok with the quote, approve it. Else reject it and take the MacBook back paying a nominal diagnosis fee.
