Black Screen on Startup of MacBook Air Model A1466
First off, I am in South Africa, there are no Apple Stores around here to help me with this problem.
I spilt water on the keyboard quite a while back but the laptop still works fine with the exclusion of the power button which only seems to work when turning on the Mac (only if the power cable is not connected) otherwise when the Mac is on the power button has no function so you cannot turn off the laptop by pressing the power button.
My current problem is that I logged out of one of my accounts and got to a black screen, holding down the power button to switch the laptop off did not work as the button is faulty so I had to wait for the battery to drain. I then charged the battery for a little while and removed the power cable and pressed the power button to boot up but it keeps returning to the black screen every-time.
I have tried command+R as well as Command+Cntrl+P+R etc none of which have any effect. Would opening the Mac air and disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it perhaps reset the laptop and solve the problem? It is out of warranty.
Is this a good question?
