Problem Charging, Tried SMC reboot and computer won't restart
The charger and light on my charger wouldn't work when plugged in so I turned it off, tried cleaning with condensed air, then turned back on. Didn't solve the issue. So I turned it off and tried an SMC reboot. After this, the computer will not restart. It was at about 22% battery when this happened. The charger was plugged in but not lit up when I did the reboot. I've tried several different ways to get the computer to reboot with no avail. I brought it in to campus IT and the guy thinks that the magsafe board needs replacing. What do you think?
As background, I had a small water spill that made the computer shut down several months ago. Apple was no help and told me the logic board was likely shot. I dried it, my partner disassembled it, saw no damage at all, and it restarted fine and has worked great since. I had the no charging or light on thing happen once before, prior to water, but that was remedied with a new charger. I don't want to buy a $70 part if that won't fix it. Would an apple authorized dealer be able to tell me if it was that part that was the issue?
Is this a good question?
