Macbook 13" (A1342) -- trying to revive after wine spill
by kilbourne3 - 10/5/11 6:36 PM
After a white wine spill on the keyboard, the computer stopped. My wife mistakenly tried to restart it, several times, and never disconnected the battery. Brought it to Apple, they quoted a price to fix, so she just bought a new one. Two weeks later I get it and, assuming it's the logic board, try most of the tricks I've read online (scrub logic board with alcohol, blast with electronic contact cleaner, even bake in the oven (380 degrees, 7.5 minutes)). At start up the fan works, the screen lights up, you see the apple and the thing going in circles, but no chime, and it shuts off after 10 or so seconds. Any other suggestions on trying to get the board to work? It may be toast, but I'm willing to try again if there's a reasonable remedy.
