Water spill on MacBook Pro, didn’t turn it off

Dear all,

I just spilled a glass of water on my macbook pro, I used a towl immediately to wipe the water off but unfortunately, I didn’t turn my Mac off for about two hours. Then I came back to it and noticed everything worked fine except the speaker, which happens to be broken. (I should also mention that I’m so stupid that I even restarted it after I noticed the problem with the speakers). Now I have turned it off and placed it upside down but I’m too worried about the damage that I may have caused specially by leaving it on. Would someone please tell what could happen now and what should I do? Is there anyway to fix the speaker? And is it possible that the damage would only be limited to the speaker?

Thanks in advance

Firstly you need to disconnect the battery this is key. although its switched of there is still power flowing through it. although there isn’t a guide specifically for this you can follow the teardown to step 6 which will show the battery disconnection process. if possible keep the screen separated from the keyboard or place a thing cloth between as when upside down water can leak into and behind the glass ruining your screen too.

Once disconnected if you are able to yourself you will want to fully tear down the machines as best you can and follow this guide . you will need to clean the boards with isopropyl alcohol. This will work best to try and clean up the corrosion from the water. although before you switched it off you only had an issue with your speaker corrosion will work overtime to render your laptop useless.
