MacBook charges, but wont boot up

I own a black MacBook (~2006) and an accident happened with orange juice. I cleaned it all, let it dry, and now it charges, the color of the charger with battery changes to orange, it does the beep sound like when it's booting but the screen stays black..

Can it be fixed or is it ruined?

First hook it up to an external monitor to help determine the issue. Also can you give us the last three figures of your serial number located in the battery compartment.
