Moisture Sensor (Powerbook G4)

Is there a moisture sensor on the Powerbook G4? I got mine soaked and it wont work (Kernal Errors and beyond).

I just opened it up, and didn't notice anything, but I didn't remove the logic board.

If there's not, maybe I can just play dumb and get it repaired?

I've never heard of a moisture sensor on a mac... Not sure but I doubt it

Not sure about the moisture sensor

I'm sure the apple tech's aren't stupid, though.

Soaked with what?

No moisture sensors, but Apple has been known to use small adhesive "tags" that change color upon contact with liquids, I believe.

What did you do to dry it out when it got wet?
