Jump Pad location on this model

I got one of these in last week with a keyboard liquid spill. It will not power up. Due to the cost of the upper case and inability to change out just the keyboard, my customer decided not to attempt repair and traded in in to me for a working machine. Now I have a possible source for some very high dollar parts and replacements keys (which I have been unable to find). I need to jump the logic board to boot it up to test out the other parts and possibly recover the data off the SSD. I'm hoping either @danj, @reecee or @oldturkey03 might know where I can find this info. Bleach under display. this photo is with the display on.

No idea, haven't had many in myself. Should prompt boot when the charger is connected though, after reconnecting the battery; just disconnect the keyboard to ensure this isn't preventing boot too

reece thanks, I switched this from a comment to an answer as this had slipped my mind and will resolve the issue. And it worked. Will have some high dollar scarce parts and a whole board of replacement keys now ;-)

Good to hear. Not going to lie, I'm slightly jealous :)

@reecee don't be. The customer had wiped it down with bleach, it infiltrated the display, fan is not working, found more corrosion on the logic board. I may come out with very little.

@mayer ouch, they really did a number on it. Hopefully you can salvage some parts from it, and maybe even end up with test parts (in the case of the screen, if it has leaked in the backlight, it may still light up fine)

@reecee Display works, see photo update. Machine boots & runs. Battery will not charge. We're going to pull the board again and clean some more.
