History: So this girl i was dating (its her laptop, its with me now for the last god knows how long, we've long since broken up) dropped a big glass of oolong tea on her macbook (hit glass and it fell on it) while it was on. It fuzzed (according to her) and she called me in a panic. I asked her to shut it off, remove the battery and let it dry out. This was probably like May of last year. Well after repeated drying (according to her) in the sun the laptop still wouldnt come on. So she gave it to me (it has my 80gb SATA hdd in it (her's died right before this oolong incident and i gave her my 80gb SATA hdd instead of her standard 120 - she had it for like 2 weeks at the most). Anyway the laptop has been sitting in my closet all this time. Tonight while cleaning stuff out I saw it, i turned it on. Problem: Does not turn on. When i connect the magsafe connector it first goes orange and then green. If I hit the power button, the screen comes on for a flicker and goes off. I can hear hard drive power up and the cpu fan spinning inside. There is no other response. You can hold the power button down and it will power off. Also the magsafe connector flashes green/orange when i try power up (at times, it seemed to stay orange the last time - maybe it was finally charging). It still does the same thing without the battery plugged in except the magsafe blinks orange / green. So basically that laptop to me is DOA. However I would like to return it to her if i can fix it. I am not sure what may have gone bad. Apparently it was a significant amount of oolong tea. I can try let it sun out tomorrow in 70* weather in So.Cal but I doubt it would do much. I do not know how to open this macbook up so a guide might help. Its not under apple care (we checked), so I can either open it up and salvage whatever I can (mostly my hdd) or try and poke around and fix it. Also I tried a neighbours white macbook's battery, nothing works. The black macbooks battery will not fit in the white one's slot (weird - i wonder if this battery has actually expanded) Obviously it does power up and power down but nothing else. I am wonder what may have gone wrong. I am more of a PC/Linux guy than a mac guy so I am not completely aware of the little mac tricks. Any help would be much appreciated.
