    Spilled like half liter of coffee on my 2010 late mbp 15" (the i5 with 330m)

    After dissasemlby and washing literally the mac with isoprophilic alcohol the primary results were this.

    - Dead keyboard (mostly, the shift is stuck on)
    - Battery dead (when i unplugged it, the connector was full of coffee, maybe it made shortcut)

    Now the weird part.

    Day 1: plugged the computer, (without bat) all fine.
    Day 2: Plugged the computer, nothing worked, the mac didn't even started...
    Day 3: same as day 1, all flawless!
    Day 4: absolutely dead... again.

    The thing is, when i plug the magsafe, the light comes green but almost perceptible, like it cant just get enough power...

    Any ideas?

    If i have to buy another motherboard from ebay (here in chile they cost 1.600 USD) can i put a newer MB? like a 2011?, think i have to buy the keyboard.

    Thanks everyone! any help would be great!!!!

    Only thing I could suggest is to make sure the laptop is entirely and completely dry, sometimes varying components refuse to work until they are completely dry.

    and i f i remember correctly, the way to do this is stuff everything into bags full of rice.
