Fan spins, all the lights blink, won't power on
I have a macbook pro 13" unibody late 2011 model.
On my Macbook Pro I had a protective silicone keyboard cover and my friend spilled about an ounce of water onto the cover and we grabbed it right up and removed the cover and that's where most of the water was. We immediately turned the machine off, dabbed up all the water and left it off and unplugged for 36 hours. WE brought it to genius bar and they could not fix it claiming there was water damage all through the logic board. When I opened it later since my warranty is voided I could not find water damage on every component as I was told.
When its plugged in the magsafe power adapter lights up green and then orange. The fan spins, the part where the hardrive is connected blinks. I've even heard the macbook try to "Breathe" And at one point it would charge my devices.
When its charging I can see the green lights and I've gotten 100 per cent charge before.
The magsafe LED does also react to the power button being depressed.
The macbook's screen does not come on and the power button itself won't light up when I touch it.
The screen does not come on at all.
Is this salvageable? I can't seem to remove the battery as the last screw that has to come out has been stripped.
I cannot find a solution. I noticed the hard drive is Toshiba so I can get my files out because it seems to still be in great shape so if I have to remove the harddrive to transfer files with my son in law's black widow I will do that to at least salvage my files.
But if I can get it back to running I'd like to craigslist it for a few hundred dollars and be done with mac altogether. I'd rather not have to scrap it for parts if anyone has any good advice.
ETA: After further inspection it is a bit worse water damaged than I thought. Any help appreciated
Is this a good question?
