Power button not working.. Bad logic board?
My mac will no longer power on after cleaning the outside with a MagicEraser. After cleaning it only powered on once, looked for a network drive (?), then proceeded to open up multiple finder windows. The rapidly opening windows caused me to shut it down by holding in the power button. Now it will not turn on. This is what I've been experiencing:
-I've discovered that the finder windows opening up is caused by a deleted or misplaced desktop background picture... no big deal.
-Prior to cleaning I was having issues with my trackpad responding and some over heating.
-The battery is fully charged, AC adapter works great.
-Tried the SMC reset by holding in the power button for 5 seconds with the battery out... did not fix the problem
-Apple suggested that it might be a problem with the logic board and would like lots of money from me to repair it.
-I have the 13" macbook 2.4ghz early 2008 white model
-It is at the Apple repair place waiting for me to decide if I would like to spend $750 for repairs or not... they discovered "liquid damage"
Do you think this may be a problem with the logic board, top case, or anything else? Any input before I spend lots of money would be greatly appreciated. :-)
Is this a good question?
