Canon 60D blueprint/guide on building the chips and motherboard?

I tried to fix a stuck shutter button, and used a contact lenses cleaner liquid to pour in it according to a recommendation online...Well, that was a bad idea, now my camera doesn't work at all. It won't turn on. I'm guessing the chip or whatever it's called, got shorted. What I'm asking is where can I view the blueprint and find the name of each chips (or board, or whatever you call it inside the camera) so I can order the correct parts I need. I know that it's not recommended that I take apart my camera, but I've done that multiple of times. It's just expensive to send in my camera for diagnosis and repair.

I've tried to find it by googling but I'm totally out of luck!

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I dont think you will find one, but I dont think you need it.

Where did you pour the cleaner? Did you use electrical contact cleaner, or eye-contact cleaner?

If its a little electrical contact cleaner, you will need to do a full dismantle, wipe up, and reassembly.

Since you've taken the motherboard out, you should put it all back together. Then make guide on removing motherboard. Did you take batteries out when trying to unstick button? Eric has good point about contact cleaner. I started using custom configurations for camera action. Turning off the half press to start auto focus and instead I use AF-ON button on back to start Auto Focus. Makes it faster and easier to use. Then you are all ways depressing shutter button all the way. So no sticky gets stuck in middle. Hope you get it worked out. You may find a beaten up 60d and use it for spare parts. Have you tried calling Canon service or local camera shop. A lot of those guys are always willing to talk shop. If you do get info post it please. Good Luck!
