Diagnosing a liquid spill? I have some questions.
So I inherited a Mid 2011 Macbook Air that had a little spill. I have cleaned it out as best I could and am trying to diagnose what parts need replacing.
So far the battery is a sure thing because it will not even attempt any signs of life unless plugged into the power adapter which has a standard green glow.
When I press the power button the fan spins and if I have a USB cable plugged into either port it gives power the the device attached.
However no chime or anything to show it even attempts to boot.
I have a bootable OSX Mountain Lion flash drive however trying to figure out the parts to replace. Could the logic board still be bad even if both USB ports are giving power and the fan will spin?
Could it just need a battery and SSD?
So I ended up ordering a logic board for it and got it working.
Booted fine and got a fresh install of OS-X. I did break the connector for the right speaker in the process but I can get a new one.
The battery is also shot. But hey I'm just happy it works.
Thanks for the tips all.
Is this a good question?
