How Computer Repair Can End Human Trafficking

Do you have an iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC that you’ve been waiting to get repaired? Come join us this Saturday, April 30th and we’ll help you turn that First World Problem into a Third World Solution. That’s right, it’s true that computer repair can end human trafficking in our city and around the world – and we’ll show you how.

Turning First World Problems into Third World Solutions

This Saturday 10:30AM at the Sundial Bridge, United Way of Redding will be hosting their annual Walk Against Traffick event, and we’re helping them throw the party! We will be DJ’ing the event – and performing phone and computer repairs on the side. Not only that, but for every device we repair or appointment we schedule at this event, we will be donating 50% of all profits to put an end to human trafficking in our city and around the world. It’s just one of the ways we love to give back and support the amazing people in our city and community at large.

What Is the Walk Against Traffick?

Walk Against Traffick is a fundraising Walk-A-Thon for Hard Places Community, an organization that is actively fighting Sex Trafficking in Cambodia. This event raises awareness of sex trafficking in our community and helps support amazing people that are on the front-lines of ending this travesty in our day.

Spilled Water or Other Liquid on MacBook Pro

Blog, Computer Repair, MacBook

One of the worst things that can happen to your MacBook Pro is water, wine, soda or something else spilling on it.

A sinking feeling in the stomach happens as the liquid begins settling in.

Water Damaged Logic Board

A new Logic Board usually costs hundreds of dollars; and most often closer to a thousand than $500. AppleCare and Apple support will replace a Logic Board for a fee if you are outside of warranty, but there are a few ways to resurrect a dead Logic Board that are worthy of attempting first and it could save your wallet hundreds of dollars.

Most often what breaks is the keyboard assembly in the unibody MacBook Pro. Sometimes the MagSafe power board will also be damaged significantly and will need replacement. But if your Mac won’t boot, you definitely need to get the Logic Board services as soon as possible.

What Should I Do?

If you get a liquid spill on your MacBook, the best thing you can do is turn it off completely while you ask someone to go help you get some towels to pat the MacBook Dry. If your MacBook has a removable battery, you can take that out as well. If it doesn’t have a removable battery, taking it to a repair shop right away could increase your chances greatly in a successful recovery from water damage. The main thing you do not want to do is to turn your MacBook on and off a bunch to see if it magically works. It won’t. It must be disassembled for inspection and cleaned.

Some technicians do not feel comfortable in working at the component level for repair, but as a person who doesn’t believe in “Can’t.” before “How?” I am always willing to do my best in resurrecting the damaged Logic Board first. My diagnostic fees are teensy tiny and I have a good success rate at getting the MacBook functional again.
