Before we go to far the question is was there a spill. If so use the linked guide. If no spill lets try a couple of things. Since the unit is currently disassembled remove the pram battery. Link provided. Then remove the battery and try to turn the computer on with both batteries out. If the computer boots with both batteries out then you should obtain replacement batteries and install them. Be sure to allow the battery to charge for a least 30 minutes before you try to boot. Good luck.
