    Hey guys, I'd like to hear opinions.
    Here's my story...

    I had an accident with a MacBook 13.3'' white, namely, I spilled a tea with honey on it. It was approx. 1 and a half years ago.
    When it happened, I unplugged it from power source, removed the battery, turned it upside down and so on and so forth. Long story short - it did not work, I thought it was dead. Still, I brought it to Apple-authorized repair shop, they cleaned logic board with ultrasound (?!), replaced the keyboard with a new one and my MacBook was revived!(Though, the repairman did not promise anything..) Everything worked except the battery...
    So I used it for 5 months or so with no problems at all.
    Then I went on vacation and left my Macbook at home, I did not use it for a month. After my return I tried to turn it on but with no success.
    There was actually a chime sound at the beginning (when I first attempted to turn it on), but not anymore. The screen just flickers a bit before going black, there is no chime sound, but the little (white) light is on. I think I can also hear CD/DVD drive buzzing. Once I got fans working (IDK how...)
    I already gave it up and got my BF's old PC, so MacBook stood there dead on the desk for months.
    So there was another attempt after a while - and it worked (!!), I managed to get the most important files on my external drive!! Yeah, but my joy was short-lived, because it went to sleep, and did not wake up :(
    Now I try to turn it on once in a while, but with no success. Did it die? :(
    The little white light still turns on, there is still this humming from DVD drive, something happens, but it won't boot.
    So I thought maybe there still is residue from honey, or maybe some connections corroded while I was on vacation?!
    What do you think, is there any chance that I could reanimate (say...clean the mobo again) my MacBook? Or should I let it go... :confused:

    Thanks! Any answer will be appreciated!

    You should go to the Apple Store, a buy a new one.
    Put your hard drive into an external closure, and copy files onto your shiny new Mac.
