Water damaged MacBook Air, can I chisel down the potential problem?
Last year I had spilled soda on my MacBook Air 13” early 2014. I would eventually have problems with booting, but when it’s on I have an issue with the trackpad and keyboard which I wrote a topic on on this forum. I had issues with turning on the MacBook so I didn’t continue.
Today I tried turning it on after a long period of time so I know the power discharged. I held the power button and it booted up! I still had the same issue with the trackpad. I shutdown the MacBook and now I’m unable to power it back on. I’m not sure if I’ve waited long enough for a complete discharge but when I plug in the MagSafe it turns orange indicating charge. When I try hitting the power button it turns green indicating the power button is registering a press. But when I hit the power button it does not turn on.
I’m hoping with this information I can help diagnose the situation further. It looks like it can theoretically power on under the right condition. Perhaps with a power discharge?
I imagine the issue could be corrosion but could it be the battery or another part I could replace from what I’m describing?
I did not do anything. I eventually just stopped powering it on. I don’t have any tools to crack open the MacBook yet. I initially just cleaned the surface so it looks normal.
I was hoping I could target a few areas like just the battery and trackpad. I imagine leaving it like that did not help the situation.
