Water spill on keyboard, won't power up.
My girlfriend has a macbook pro and she enjoys drinking large glasses of water right next to it. Unfortunately, when she last spilled water on it, something went wrong and the mac will not power up anymore (after flipping it and 5 days drying).
I've taken the logic board out and I've seen almost no trace of water damange (the dust on the board was pretty much intact. I see no copper oxidation (greenish), but there are a few brownish (copper color) spots top left of the power pads where it should be white.
The computer will still not turn on when I press the power button. I tried cmd+alt+p+r, nothing.
The magsafe light turns green when I plug it in and the battery indicator says the battery is full.
When I short the power pads, the computer boots up.
Is there an easy way to find out if the keyboard is dead or if it's the keyboard chip (which will be harder to replace obviously)?
What do you mean short the power pads?

With the hard drive in and the power plugged in, I managed to successfully boot the computer and the keyboard still works. I had to short the power pads to boot it up, the power button just doesn't work.
What I need to know is how to test the power button to find out whether it's the actual power switch / keyboard circuit that failed or whatever device that reads the signal from the keyboard?
I have the laptop open up to the keyboard with the power switch unscrewed. I need a smaller phillips screwdriver to remove the keyboard.

Hi i have a similar issue, although i am typing on a usb keyboard, i spilt a tiny bit of tea on the keyboard, immediately turned it off and put it upside down with the display open so tea would drip out. Although my keyboard is shot, its working ok. Although i have now got an even more bigger problem, the wifi and bluetooth say their not installed. Not entirely sure if this is a result of the liquid spill or something more sinister. not entirely sure but this could also be related to trying to install beta versioon of Mac OS SIERRA 10.12.2. But its failed on all restarts to install it and now i have no wifi or bluetooth. using my iPhone usb connection at the moment... any ideas? Cheers and what a useful site. I have also ordered a replacement keyboard for the MacBook from amazon. is this easy to reinstall?
