mate spilt lemonade all over his MBP. he had a silicone keyboard cover on it turned it upside down on a towel straight away, took out power and battery. i took it apart and got stuff off the harddrive, left it to dry out for two days and then put it back together. Turned on and is all operational (apart from the sleep light and IR sensor, i ripped the ribbon cable taking it off the HDD after about ten mins of running the screen backlight died. we turned it off, it was off for about 2 mins, then when turned back on it was going again, and now after 5 mins its off again. Would this be the inverter? the screen is going but no backlight any help or advice would be appreciated. thanks edit: it is running a cpu stress test currently which will heat up the hinge where the inverter is. brightness is set to 0 bars so its not trying to turn on. My thinking is that it will heat the hinge enough to dry out any moisture that may have been in there.
