What to do after MacBook Air getting water damaged
Long story short, tea spill on macbook air 11 inch 2012 version. I put it in rice at the beginning, and made the mistake of trying to start it multiple times before cleaning it. It started several times, each time getting worse and eventually won't start at all.
I got the necessary tools to took it apart down to the logic board, and cleaned it. The logic board doesn't look bad at all, it doesn't look like any of the moisture sensor turned red on the logic board. Two of the moisture sensor on the battery turned red.
After drying it, I put it back together and tried starting it without the battery. After pressing the power button for several seconds, the keyboard lights up and then went dark. Nothing started up. Power Connector light is orange.
I then put the battery back and tried starting it. Power Connector light is Green (Does that mean the battery isn't dead after-all?) Same thing as before, keyboard light comes up and went dark.
What are your recommendations? Would a new battery make any difference? Is the logic board totally dead?
Is this a good question?
