Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Mac notebook will not come on

Two years ago I spilled a cup of coffee on my husband's Mac notebook, it was cooked, I bought him a new notebook because the mother board cost as much as a new notebook. Having nothing to loose we took out all the screws cleaned the keys the parts with rubbing alcohol and put it back together again, we did not put back all the screws, just saved them, but we had no success. We packed it back up again and last week I took it out put the charger on and to my surprise it came on! But it was short lived, when I removed the power cord it turned off and would not come on again. I then got the working notebook and switched batteries, I found the old notebook did not come on and the new note book would not even charge the old battery. There was a x in the battery icon. Because the computer did come on I feel this means the mother board is all right and perhaps if I replaced the power switch maybe I could get the original notebook working again. What do you think? The notebook was only three months old when I ruined it.

Usually when you spill liquids over an electronic device, it better be off the power. Once it dries you can most cases use it again.
With a laptop thats a different story, because it has the battery in it.

In your case i think:
The battery probably died because of the liquid, i had the same thing happening to my dads laptop. Try to plug the mac in and start it without the battery.

Because the mac came on at all, you can be sure that the mainboard is still working.
If it comes on with the powercord pluged in or a different battery, you should just consider buying a new battery.

Two years are a long time for computer parts. Im not sure, but the battery of the newer notebook might be incompatible to the old one.

So try to get a new battery, since this is the part that dies first when liquids get spilled.

I hope this works for you =)

Water/grinds spillover in coffee basket


Pot must be inserted with the handle pointing straight out the front so it will hit the valve that is below the basket designed for the "rob a cup" while brewing feature.
