Unable to boot from USB with battery attached

I inherited a 13-inch 2012 MB Air A1369 (1.7 Core i5) with liquid damage. It came without a SSD. After cleaning I am able to boot from a USB HDD with OS X 10.8.2. However when I connect the battery all I see is a blinking question mark on a folder. Disconnecting the battery allows me to again boot.

Do I need a SSD to allow for operation when battery is attached? Are there other problems? Would sending it off for repair be helpful?

Update

I just finished installing a SDD, connected the battery,restored from an external backup and it booted. Weird!

Without a working Power Button an SMC reset is impossible.

Now, to replace the keyboard. Onward and upward.

Connect the battery and try an SMC reset... the machine may be fixated on booting from the HD. Some of the newer machines are a bit idiosyncratic about booting with/without batteries.
