Water spilled on keyboard.

When plugged into power supply, MacBook works fine. MagSafe plug light shows green even though battery is not charged. Battery indicator in upper right menu bar shows a battery with an X in it. I put the battery in another MacBook and it charged up fine. Do you think replacing the MagSave board will solve the problem?

Hi, Since the unit works with the ac adapter the magsafe board is probably good. Check out thoroughly the battery connections for any sign of damage from moisture. You may need to replace the connector. Good luck Ralph

Spilling liquid on a MacBook often has the serious consequence of destroying the MacBook battery charging system. Most of the times the problem is logic board related. The battery connector itself is rarely the culprit but it could be. Since buying the battery connector is pretty cheap comparing to the logic board price I would first buy the connector and cross my fingers...
