MacBook Pro powers on only when keyboard disconnected after water spil
My wife spilled water on her early 2011 Macbook Pro unibody. It was closed when the spill hit it.
It has been sitting for about a week now and there are no signs of water. Unfortunately it won't power on. After some tinkering under the hood and trying to no avail to get it to boot via the power pads, I discovered as soon as I flip the retaining flap of the keyboard cable it powers up immediately. It boots up all the way with trackpad functioning but no keyboard (naturally).
Is my only option an entire upper case replacement?
