    Hello everyone,

    I have a MacBook Pro 13.3" Laptop - MC374B/A (April,2010) on which has been spilled Coke. The zone with the most sign of corrosion was around the lvds cable.
    When i plug in the charger i get the green light on the jack but the logic board does not power up. I cleaned the motherboard thoroughly with isopropyl, did a keyboard bypass but no luck. I tried to bake it as well but no results. Any thoughts on this?

    Many thanks

    I just tried now, if i connect the battery to the logic board and then connect the charger the fan starts to spin full speed for a couple of seconds without me doing anything and then stops.( no power button press no keyboard bypass)
    Nothing appear on the display either if i connect it.

    Take it to Apple. Wait. First reassemble it, and pray you didn't take off the little "warranty void" sticker. Sometimes the employees can repair it for a discounted rate if you explain the truth. It's worth a try :)

    If it's water damaged it's out of warranty. Can anyone please help and tell me what to measure, what do you think is fried or.. dunno.

    thanks

    I think that board is gone...If I was you I would start looking for another one.
    You can fine some working used "cheap" boards from other who broke other parts of their MBP.

    there are a few repair shops that actually repair logic board but then again it depends on the kind of damages and is not cheap.
    Might as well see if you have any sort of insurance that can cover this accident?

    Unfortunately Coke is just about the worst thing you could have spilled on it. It's most likely a write-off at this point.

    Time for a tier 4 mail in repair. Cost on that is around 725 I think.
