Power to laptop after coffee spill but not powering up.Had just logged in when spilt coffee on MacBook. Unplugged machine, turned it upside down then forced machine to power off...
Answer to "Power to laptop after coffee spill but not powering up."My MacBook is now working again after following the tip posted by Dan Widman for 'jump starting' laptop by pressing keyboard connector pins to motherboard etc. I didn't think the motherboard was the problem and instead suspected the issue was with the Power On button / keyboard top unit - either way, the jump start option would prove this definitively. Dan's tip has saved me time and money. There are still some issues - shift key on left-hand side isn't working and need to reset SMC but this can wait. The main thing is that the machine is working again and I know what the problem is. Hopefully a replacement keyboard top unit is all I need! BIG thank you to Dan and the crew at 'fixit' : ) To view Dan's jump-starting tip - search for "Coffee on new MacBook" (12/09/2009) and follow reply chain until you get to Dan's message (3/15/2011).
