My MBP won't turn on! after I spilled tea.

So recently i spilled some tea on my MBP, i completely opened it and cleaned it with Isopropyl alcohol. When i connected the charger it shows the light but nothing else and when i try to turn it on it wont work. I tried holding the power button for 10 seconds and later only the fans turned on but nothing on the screen. I dont know whats going on! can someone tell me what to do? does it mean my logic board is dead?

Where did the liquid enter? If through the keyboard it's probably shorted out and will need to be replaced.

Now did you see any evidence of the liquid getting to the logic board?

Was this answer helpful?

it was like really little spots of liquid on the logic board near the keyboard plug rest all the logic board was good.


also if the keyboard shorted out would the fans still turn on when you try to reboot?


The fan will generally come on with a 50% destroyed logic board. it comes on when almost nothing else will work.


so should i try to replace the keyboard?

and also is there any way to check if the logic board is not destroyed?


First try:

To start your computer from Recovery, restart your Mac and hold down the Command and R keys at startup. Hold these keys until the Apple logo appears. After your computer finishes starting up, you should see a desktop with an OS X menu bar and an OS X Utilities window with the options listed.

Liquid damage is almost impossible to diagnose over the internet.

If it were in the shop I would try a replacement upper case first, clean the board, put the SSD card in a external and we can't do that here,
