Water Damage Repair: Clean as a whistle but won't boot?
I've inherited a mid-2012 MacBook Pro that's background story was some wine spilled and the computer no longer works. I've had some luck with repairing liquid damaged MacBooks so I decided to give this a shot.
I've disassembled and cleaned the logic board and mag-safe DC-in twice over. First time utilizing medical grade denatured alcohol then deionized water followed by 72 hours of drying in a rice bin.
That didn't work, so I gave mayor's suggestion a shot of soaking the board in detergent and hot water followed by a drying spell.. no luck.
The computer shows no signs of life. With the mag safe plugged in the light on the mag safe does not glow, the indicator lights on the side does not blink and no part of the logic board gets warm to the touch. Utilizing battery power, the indicator lights do not show the battery life status nor will the computer boot.
Is this guy a goner or is there something I'm overlooking? I think he still has some life in him but it may just be over my skill set. Thanks in advanced!
Is this a good question?
