Major spill damage on keybord

@ all spill specialists!

Yet another major drama from Krautland! A big cup of coffee with milk & sugar, gently spillt by a ladies hand, ended the life of an MBA 13"(4,2 Mod.: A 1369) abruptly.

When I opened it this morning, the whole thing 'swam' and some contacts where already coroded.

The keybord for sure is dead, cause the machine was running and the 'lady in panic' restartet it immediately after the spill.

I've dried & cleaned everything so far! Now how do I find out whether the mainboard is o.k. or dead?

Is there a way to 'hotwire' it, like the MBP 15"? I couldn't find anything on the net; not even youtube was helpful

@ Stone & Mayer: Thanks for ur hints at the last issue! I learned a lot & I'm really greatful for that.

Kind regards from Krautland

Look at this site. For newer macbooks shorting pin #5 the top case connector (bridging to ground on logic board) works.
