MBA1465 boots only after disconnecting/connecting battery & power cord
There was a water spillage on my Mac. I used isopropyl to clean and revive. I am currently writing this question from Mac I revived by running OSX from USB flash drive. SSD removed.
Issues that still persist :
#1. Power button does not work at all —> either to turn On or Off.
#2. I can literally the computer after 'Shutdown’. Computer is non-responsive if I shut it off. I have to go through the entire process of disconnecting battery, connecting it back and connect back power cord.
Revived Mac using these steps :
Removed out SSD completely (I am now using a flash drive to run El Capitan.)
Disconnected & re-connected battery.
Connected power-cord . Voila!
Since power button is not responsive, SMC reset is out of question following the steps published. Why is the computer Restarting without any problems , but when I shut down , I have to disconnect/re-connect the battery? Does seem like this step is wiping out some memory that is hampering the step of boot-up. Battery is charging fine after I connect it back and power cord is connected.
Why would power button not respond ?
Would new SSD help? Any chance these 2 issues of SSD and power button be related ? I ordered a new SSD to see if it helps. But I doubt.
Any explanation and ideas on this would be highly appreciated .
