Do the iMac's also have the water/moisture indicator (LCI) ?

Hey guys,

The iPhones and Macbooks have them. But does anyone know if the iMac's do too?

Had the windows open last night and a cold front came through. There were small drizzles of rain covering the bottom of the Imac back panel. I would say from the bottom edge to 2.5 inches up.

Just worried my warranty is now gone.

I found this: Apple LCI BUT it only mentions the desktop keyboard - but no iMac.

Thanks!

Sorry for toilet comment. I was just referring to the fact that iPhones and laptops are more vulnerable to water damage then is the iMac.

First word of first answer: No, there is no LCI in your iMac.

That said. Sleep is NOT the same thing as OFF, by a long shot. You need to completely powerdown your computer and unplug it. Even with the computer off, there is still live current in your computer. This is a very bad combo with the water. UNPLUG your computer until it is completely dry.

Running ANY current anywhere in your computer while it is wet will damage the computer. In that case you can only hope that the insides did not get too wet. A tiny bit of moisture might not be a problem.

Getting back to your question: If you computer works after it is completely dry, then you don't need to mention that your computer was ever moistened and it will never be an issue.

No. They are seldom dropped in the toilet.

Obviously you have unplugged this computer and let it dried out. It may spontaneously work once it is COMPLETELY dry.

Apple's warranty does not cover water damage of any kind with or without the LCI. Getting around Apple's warranty policy is outside the scoop of this forum

One more comment on liquids in computers.

Water often dries and leaves electronics working ok if the machine was not left plugged in too long. All other water soluble substances tend to cause problems. Oil tends not to except to moving parts like keyboards.

I don't get none of your answers..or your being sarcastic?

What does this have to do with the toilet?

Im just asking if the iMacs HAVE LCI's in them.

I did not have to unplug it, it was on sleep mode, and been on since this morning.

The small rain drops were just on the outside panel of the back of the iMac. I know water couldn't get in but the moisture might of risen up to through the holes on the bottom of the desktop.

SO question is - do the iMacs ALSO have LCI's? I can't find no information on it, and that's what I am trying to get.
