I spilled juice on my MacBook about 7 months ago. Since then I bought another MacBook Air. I spilled it right on the keyboard, it's all sticky there now. I still have the MacBook. Now the charger works as I've tested it on the new mac, but on the old one it won't turn on or change a color. What would be the default the battery or the logic board. How could I test this. If I were to add a battery from a different laptop aknd then test this would it be ok. Or is there anyway I could test the logic board. I just want to see if anything is working. If all goes unwell what could I salvage. I'm thinking the screen, storage, and wifi/Bluetooth.

if you left it wet, and let it turned on or turned it on again, you probably killed the mainboard, short circuits everywhere surely killed it completelly, if not every part is sulfated now

i wouldn't waste money on that

if you want to play around, first thin i would do is disasemble it, especially remove mainboard completelly

if you see something like this



or this



buy a new mainboard, or sell the still good parts as spare parts on ebay
