I was told by an apple store that the I/o board had a problem but because they found traces of coffee near the battery lid they didn't repair it for me under the AppleCare warranty I had which was a big shame.
I put this off for a long time but after receiving the parts and sitting down to do it it took me an hour or so to replace it and it fixed the problem straight away. On the origInal i/o board there were three tiny condensors that had burned away but as far as I can see there was no evidence of coffee on this board so I don't think this was caused by spilling coffee at all.
Smooth as silk.
When you take out screws put them in little bowls or containers you put on a sheet of paper. Write down the step number and use colored markers in the same colour as the guide if you need to make sure you distinguish between different screws.
I only needed to do that in one step and drew colored circles on the paper and put the screws in the respective circles.
Don't be hasty and don't force anything.

The battery in my MacBook Pro wouldn't charge consistently. You'd plug it in and it would charge for a while and then stop charging. I tried another power adapter but it didn't change. So it seemed the I/O board was the next logical link in the chain.
The repair is pretty straightforward if you are used to taking apart things like this. Instructions were very good, specifically the location and types of screws to be removed.
Everything is working fine now (the lighting on the keyboard is more consistent too.
I recommend getting a muffin baking pan and putting the screws from each step in a separate compartment. Take your time removing the cables and connectors - they are pretty flimsy. Be sure connectors are perfectly aligned before trying to press them back together. It is very easy to bend pins or crack the socket.
My computer didn't charge power anymore… so first I thought it was because of my removable battery was dead, and when I changed it for a brand new one (already charged) my computer used all the energy of it and didn't recharge it.As the cable connection was still working with the little green/orange light, I concluded that may be the magsafe board device had to be removed
My computer shop retailer didn't wanted to repair it, prefered to sell me a new Macbook pro !! So, first I found a video on Youtube explaining how to open my laptop without damaging it, to know which model Magsafe board was (cause there is so many models of it , I had to order the right one !!) the video on Youtube is : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DSPzwDjTCI...
Then I found IFIXIT on google and There is where I found the Magsafe stuff , they sent it to me by fedex to France and within 4 days I got it and in 1 hour all was fixed !!! AND I'M VERY HAPPY all is working again, without any lost of my works stocked in my laptop.
Sorry for my english, but I'd like to encourage all the IFIXIT Team for their job to support people to fix and also anonymous person who took their time posting videos
Don't hesitate trying fixing things cause you're saving money and it preserve the planet
