Water Damage Repair

What should I do if I drop my device in water or another liquid?

First thing to do if your device experiences liquid damage is turn it off completely. If it automatically turns off do not attempt to turn it back on. Trying to power the device possibly can cause an electrical short that can cause more issues. Next step is to bring or send the device to us for a free diagnostic because the sooner we receive it the higher the chances of us being able to repair it.

A water damage repair will generally take somewhere between 24 and 72 hours. This estimate depends on the extent of the water damage and on rare occasions take longer than the time stated.

Do you offer warranties on water damage repairs?

Our water damage repairs come with our 180-day warranty just like all of our other repairs. However, this only covers the issues caused by the parts we replaced on your device. The warranty does not include any subsequent water damage or further accidental damage to the device

Apple Parts

Are your parts Apple or OEM

Contrary to popular belief, Apple Inc. does not manufacture any parts. The parts used in Apple products are bought from 3rd party suppliers and are assembled in China. We use similar vendors for all of our parts and they are manufactured with the same OEM specifications as the original. So although we cannot say that our parts are “from Apple” we can guarantee that our parts are of the highest quality available. However, we do offer parts directly from other brands such as Samsung, LG, and Motorola.

How do I know if my device needs a board level repair?

Board problems can come in a variety of forms and can look very similar to modular issues. The best solution for you would be to bring the device to us and let us diagnose the device.
