Hello! My roommate spilled a drink on his keyboard. We got it dried immediately and it has worked for several days. Now it doesn't turn on. It still charges but won't turn on using power button. MacBook air 2012. Are there and solutions for this? How can I find the exact issue? Thanks in advance
Stop putting power through it and let it dry. Unfortunately the damage has likely already been done. In the future if you spill water onto electronics power it down immediately and do not turn it back on until you are sure it is completely dry.
Likely it is a major issue and not an easy fix. Dont bother going to apple for a fix since they will tell you it all needs replaced. There is one guy that owns a small electronics store in new york city called louis rossman. He publishes repair videos online to youtube. You may be able to mail it to him for board repair.
