There are new guidelines that I must now follow regarding Liquid Submersion Indicators that Apple has just recently started placing on all portables (MacBooks/MacBook Pros/Airs). Computers that are damaged by liquid are NOT covered by the 1-year limited warranty and AppleCare. According to Apple, these indicators are "very accurate" and "will not be affected by humidity or environmental factors," so customers should not have to worry about false readings.
When a customer drops off a computer for repair, please let them know that a diagnostic charge will be assessed if liquid damage is found, whether or not their computer is covered under warranty. Getting to these indicators is NOT easy, in most cases -- around 2 hours total to take apart the computer, just to check if there is liquid damage. Please call me if you, or any customers, have questions regarding these additional procedures.
