After spilling a tea into the macbook 11 i have disassembled it. Cleaned everyhing with IPA and brush. Put together. Macbook is working but charger does not charge. LED does not light. System says it does not charge, source of power adapter. There is small icon of battery with flash saying 2%. I have changed I/O Board, battery, performed NVRAM/SMC reset. Still behave the same. No change.

Any other suggestions?

  • Take it to a professional. See apple.stackexchange.com/a/219097/85275 At least you didn't just put it in rice & hope for the best, you took positive, useful action, but the chances are something shorted out & was damaged long before you could take it apart. – Tetsujin Dec 11 '19 at 16:19
  • Different symptoms than the duplicate question but the answer is applicable here, too. – fsb Dec 11 '19 at 16:22

    Cleaned everyhing with IPA - I guess that IPA doesn't mean India Pale Ale here ? – High Performance Mark Dec 11 '19 at 16:36
  • @HighPerformanceMark - That was my first thought too… which made me chuckle quite a bit. But no, it also stands for Isopropyl Alcohol, which is more alcoholic, but less tasty ;-)) – Tetsujin Dec 11 '19 at 16:55
