Where do I start after spilling CocaCola on new MacBook Air?
1) I spilled a glass of Coca Cola on my MacBook Air's keyboard while using it (it was powered-on)
2) After the spill, it powered off as I turned the machine upside down and pulled the power cord from the side of the machine.
3) With the machine upside down, I sop the liquid gently
4) I then shook the machine and caused more liquid to come out, which I sopped.
5) Still frantic and not thinking clearly, I shook the machine (up side down) ran a towel across the key board and sopped up more liquid.
6) Finally, I shook the machine so liquid emerged from ports on the right side, which I sopped; I then shook the machine so liquid emerged from the ports on the left side, which I sopped.
7) I repeated steps 3-6.
8) I then clicked the magnetic power adapter to the machine and, to my delight, it quickly turned orange, and green.
9) The power adapter remained green.
10) So, I pressed to power-on and the machine did *not* power on.
11) I pressed the power button a few more times... I put my ear very closely to the power button and I heard a very faint noise, almost like the sound of an old computer monitor being turned-off ...barely audible.
12) The power adapter remained green throughout.
13) I then pulled the power cord from the machine and left the machine upside down to drip dry.
14) About an hour (at most) passed.
15) I pulled the power adapter in, it turned a solid green, and I tried to power the machine on and it still would not power on...I did hear that faint sound, however.
16) Thinking very clearly, I used a hair dryer to blow any reaming Coca Cola from the machine (I did this while the machine was upside down). A very small amount of liquid seeped out, which I sopped up.
17) I then put the plug in the machine; it turned a solid green and I tried to power it on and it only made that very faint noise.
18) I left the machine upside down and went to the store and bought compressed air.
19) About an hour went by and I sprayed the machine with the compressed air...nothing really seeped from the machine
20) I plugged it back in, and it turned a solid green, tired to power it on, it did not, but only made that faint sound.
21) I finally gave up and left the machine upside down for a week.
22) After a week, I put the plug in, it turned green, and I tried to power it on, it did not power on; it only made that faint noise.
23) After reading how to tear down the machine, I am not sure what component I need to repair...or for that matter, what tools I really need to purchase.
24) I would very much appreciate a step by step response free of acronyms (I am a novice).
25) In other words:
a) What are your impressions?
c) What tools do you suggest?
d) What do suggest I look for?
e) Or, based upon my description & you expertise, what will I most likely find?
d) Also, based upon the same, what components, if any, will I most likely need to replace?
f) Estimate of cost.Estimate of cost.
g) Other options, if any.
26) Thank you!
Is this a good question?
