Can someone identify what this part that burned?

Block Image

i spilled soda on the macbook which i thought was very thirsty at the time like everyone else. i took out the logic board and noticed that only this piece burned up. i sent it out to a repair shop in San Jose and they said it couldnt be fixed. he said the trace was burnt which looks like it can just get a new part and heat it back on. am i wrong and its done for or is this repairable? can someone tell me what that little thing do and is it the reason why i cant turn on the laptop? any help is very appreciated. i took a picture from another user and circle the one in black is what i need.

Washington Le, just to identify the component. This is reference designator C6603 which is a 100uF 6.3V 20% Tantalum capacitor. As you can see by the Black/Grey markings on your component, it is a polarized capacitor. It is part of your Speaker Amp Subwoofer circuitry

thank you for the quick response, idk if you seen the updated photo as i looked closely, there is a blob solder on the right side of the logic board. other than that i can not get my laptop to start, is there any recommendation on trying to get ti to start or that component makes the laptop not turn on. i can live without sound as there is bluetooth on the laptop. please let me know. thank you


That is U0950 and definitely related to the power switch. It is a TPS2553 in a SOT23 package. A good close up may revel more. Your previously posted image is a bit small to make out the details.
