Title:

Water Damage: Runs on AC, Battery won't charge

Text:

My MacBook Pro got a bit wet, and now only runs with the MagSafe plugged in. With it plugged in, everything works as expected, but the battery does not charge, and my power source is listed as the power adapter. I have tried replacing the DC-In board for a chance at an inexpensive fix, but the new board shows the same symptoms. I have a feeling it's related to the battery connector to the logic board, as I'm seeing some very slight corrosion on the contacts of the board and can't seem to remove it after trying to clean it with isopropyl and a toothbrush. Below is the Power System Report and the Apple Store Diagnostic indicated a 'Failure' for the battery. I'm debating on replacing the battery or using a Logic Board Damage repair service if this can't be fixed easily. What should I do? Thanks.
