Macbook Air Power button not working
Hello. I own a Macbook Air A1237. My sister accidentally spilled a little beer on the keyboard. After it dried out, I plugged the laptop in, hit the power button, and nothing. The green light comes on the side of the laptop, then goes yellow(I assume that means the battery is charging). If I disconnect the battery, and plug the laptop in, the laptop powers on by itself and works.
Do I need a New keyboard with power button?
Laptop does not come on. If I disconnect the battery, then plug the laptop in, and wait a moment, then the laptop comes on, without me pushing the power button.
You should clean the inside of the laptop when you have it appart - corrosion will set in, and more problems will develop over time if you don't.
Yes a new topcase will be needed.' Liquid shorted out either/both the connector cable or the power button. ''
have the same issue though the power button answers when reseting SMC - shift +ctrl+alt+cmd+p
Allright, just after i was writing the previous answer/question i was playing with the machine and measured the voltage on the connection to the logicboard on the logicboard side and not on the Trackpad side, i kept pressing the power button and wanted to check if there is any reaction, at the beginning there was nothing and than i got 5v on pin number 4 or 5 from the left this pins normally gives 3v when turned off and 5v when turned on..now the power button works again..il let you know if it keeps that way.
but i obviously shortened something in there that activated the pin again.
