1/4 of a Mojito spilled on Top Left corner of MacBook

Hey Guys! First off, THIS SITE IS AMAZING!!!!

Anyways, my cousin spilt a little bit of her beverage on the Top Left corner of her laptop. It caused it to shut down. She let me have it after dried up for a couple days. I was excited to have it and try and fix it. The Laptop turns on now only when it's plugged in. If it's not, it wont turn on at all. The System Profiler says to REPLACE BATTERY NOW. Also, NOT CHARGING. I took out the battery and plan on buying a new one. But should I replace just the battery or also the DC? Help please! Thank you very much!

Also, I went to the Apple store and a guy took a look at it. He did something by holding "N" and the power button. A screen popped up and said that usually, the option to CHECK ADAPTER pops up but it didn't. He said he felt "Sketch" about just being the battery.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Okay guys. I replaced the DC-In Board. Still no luck with the battery charging. So is it safe to say I can purchase a new battery now? Please respond when you can. Thanks Friends

I would replace the DC-IN board. In the meantime open it up and clean the inside with alcohol, just to stop corrosion on the board.
