    Spilled in disc drive

    I recently had my MacBook Pro sitting on its side leaning against my bed with the disc drive facing up, and some melted popsicle spilled into the disc drive.
    Everything on the computer is working normally, except I cannot insert a disc into the drive unless I force it in, in which case I can tell that there is stuff inside the drive.

    I know there is probably no way to fix this at home, but I am wondering if I bring it to the apple store, will they be able to fix it or will I need to replace the laptop? I have had my computer for about a year and a half, so I don't think that I still have a warranty on it. Any idea how much it will cost to fix?

    I have no idea how much it will cost to replace the DVD Player, but it shouldn't require a complete replacement....you have been lucky that no more damage has been done to the rest of the laptop!!

    Food and computers don't mix well. Even if they are apples... :laugh:
