Liquid spilt on keyboard, components cleaned, still doesn't turning on
3 weeks ago i spilt half a shooter of whisky on my keyboard. I didn't notice it immediately and my computer passed the all night on sleep mode with the liquid inside.
The morning after, when i tried to turn it on the fans were running really fast, the screen was unusually dark, the trackpad wasn't responding normally and no color on the alimentation plug. Also when turned off, the computer was turning on by itself...
So i took it into pieces and cleaned all components (the logic board wasn't smelling alcohol, the I/O board was, also the I/O cable, the SSD and the wifi card) with distilled water and a toothbrush, put it back together, tried to turn it on, same bugs.
So after that i tried to plug the alimentation with the keyboard disconnected from the logic board. The computer didn't turn on by itself and the alimentation plug was responding normally (green led turning to orange), BUT this time the fans started automatically, very slowly, and behaving like they were booting on and on. So i replaced the keyboard with a new one, but no amelioration, the computer doesn't want to turn on, the fans behave like i told before, but when i press the booting button they turning on and on faster.
So my questions are :
- Is this behavior of the fans normal ? (someone told me that it is a "safe mode" in order to protect the computer because somehow the logic board doesn't recognize all the components)
- the I/O cable was very badly touch by the whisky, the liquid sensor turned red, can this cable be damage ?
- does someone have any other idea to share with me in order to save my 2k5 € retina...?
Is this a good question?
