Hello everybody, Last week I accidentally spilled some dr pepper on my 3 weeks old mbp.. First thing I did was to shut down and remove the battery, next I tried to remove as much of the sticky substance as I could with some paper towels. After that I used a hairdryer (without heating) to dry my mbp further. Left it to rest one night, but the next day i didn't dare turning it on.. So I put on some rubber gloves, grabbed my toolkit and started the surgery! Dug all the way down to the keyboard only to find that the dr pepper didn't get past the keyboard! All the parts inside where untouched! So I put it all together again and tried to start it. It started with a black screen but then, suddenly out of nowhere Mac OS X started! I couldn't believe how incredibly lucky I was, until I found out that the keyboard backlight wasn't functioning properly. Only in the middle there was a little light, at the edges there was hardly any. I couldn't live with this imperfection so I did another surgery. This time I removed the backlight of the keyboard and there I saw the problem. There are 6 LEDs and a 'light divider' which divides the light over the keyboard. Some sticky dr pepper stopped the light from reaching the sides of the keyboard. I cleaned it all with some demineralized water and made sure everything was dry. I put it back together and voila, everything is fine again! Just wanted to share this little adventure with you guys.
