The Apple MacBook Air M1 laptop might be the winner of one of the best laptops in the market. But when it faced its oldest opponent – water, it lost!
The laptop had Windows BOOTCAMP installed. The customer had reported that some keys have become jammed and repeated itself when typing, rendering the laptop unusable.
The cause of the problem was unknown at the time. The laptop owner was unaware of any water spill. There weren’t any signs of any water spill either when we first inspected the laptop. We tested it and deemed the keyboard needed to be replaced based on our experience.
Apple store would never touch this laptop because they don’t work on water damage. They’ll simply tell you to replace the laptop entirely.
The difficult part of this repair is that MacBook Air M1 keyboards are notoriously difficult to replace. We knew this wasn’t going to a smooth sailing and we told the customer so.
Below is a video of the problem with its keyboard. When we pressed key 3, it became jammed and repeated itself.
