Water Damaged Mac, Can I Fix It? [W/ hardware diagnostic photos]
My water bottle broke in my bag and caused water damage to my mid-2014 Macbook Pro with Retina Display
After drying out it seems to be pretty much fully functioning. However, it does not power on unless it's connected to power. I ran a hardware diagnostic and it seems like my battery and battery sensor are out
(photos here and
here). My question is if I just get a replacement battery will it fix the sensor as well?
[I understand I should just get a new laptop, like they told me at the Genius Bar, but being a struggling Uni student I'd like to leave that as the last resort]
Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!
Is this a good question?
