charging problems & weird trackpad following wine tasting, what to do?
My lovely girlfriend (i do love her, but i also love my mac...) spilled white wine on my macbook pro late 2011 a couple of month ago. I turned it off immediately and turned it upside-down. I turned it on 3 days later. It works fine except :
- If I unplug the charger and stick it back in it will take a while for the charging to start (usually several hours). If I leave the charger plugged in it will keep on charging no problem. I tried another macbook pro charger with no luck
- Only the upper part of the trackpad works and not very well. I have to use a plug-in mouse and turn off the trackpad otherwise the mouse acts weird!
My questions: What do you think the problem is? can I fix this myself? How? (I already bought the tools here to take the macbook apart).
Thanks guys, I really love my mac and I'm an apple developer so it would be really great if I could get it back to work normally!
The problem is corrosion/damag
STUDY -not just read- the Guide/teardown & comments for your machine so you do not tear components and connectors off the logic board by pulling in the wrong direction or leaving ribbon connectors locked.
Look at the tags at right to see what you are in for.
