My MacBook Air won't turn on once I shut it off (water damage)
I would like to ask if anyone has encountered a same or similar problem, and what the solution could be.
I accidentally pored water on my MacBook Air. After drying it for days in a “tent” position, I tried to turn it on, but no response. When I plugged it in, the charger’s light did not even appear at all.
I opened up the back of the lap top and took it apart to see what is going on. When I reassembled and plugged the computer in, the charger’s light appeared (red), and I was able to turn the lap top back on.
While it is running, everything seems to function perfectly on it.
The problem is that once I shut it down, I am unable to turn it back on. I can only do it if I open the back of the lap to and disconnect it’s battery cable from the board, wait a few seconds, and plug it back on (I do not even have to take out the whole battery, just disconnect it from the board).
I run diagnostics when I turned the computer on, and it suggested me to get a new battery. So I did! Now I replaced the battery, but the same problem occurs even with the new battery.
If I would like to summarize:
-If I shut down the computer, I can only turn it back on when I open up the back, and unplug the battery cable from the board and plug it back on after a few seconds (it is enough to just unplug it, I do not have to take out the whole battery)
-Then I plug the computer in with the charger, and it turns on
-When the computer is on, it is functioning perfectly without any problems or glitches
-If I shut the laptop down, then I can not turn it back on without going through the battery process mentioned above
I am not good at computers so please excuse me if my description is unclear. I would really appreciate any help or advice about what the problem could be and how to fix it, what to replace perhaps.
Thank you so much!
