Will a new logic board fix my problem?
A while ago my brother spilt tea on his Macbook A1342. After it dried out, it would not turn on at all but the light on the charger would come on if it was plugged in. He bought a new Mac and told me that if I fixed the old one, I could keep it.
Before he gave it to me, he decided to open it and see if the damage was bad. His friend, who was over while he was doing this, thought it would be fun to pull on the display cable... He ended up breaking the connector on the logic board as well as the cable. Because the connector is ruined I think I defiantly need a new logic board.
A few weeks after the spill, I took the logic board out of the computer and submerged it in distilled water. When it was dry I put it back in the Macbook. Now when I press the power button the Mac will sometimes turn on but there is no start up chime (or obviously display). I found that when the battery is unplugged the Mac always starts up (except for one time).
I know that I will need a new logic board, battery and display cable. After I buy them, do you think the Mac will function perfectly normal? Or will I need anything else?
Also, because the laptop doesn't always turn on, do you think I might need a new charger as well?
EDIT: The caps lock light doesn't come on when the key is pressed and when the ram is taken out of the Macbook it makes a beeping sound when turned on.
Is this a good question?
