I know I spilled water on it. It was off at the time, and I left it at home when I when on an out of state trip. When I got back and tried it, nothing. The power cord light didn't even light up. The genius bar said for $1400.00 they will repair it. Is there any way I can do this myself? I started building my own desktops back in the 90's, and have had this machine since new. I have lots of technical work experience, but don't want to make things worse. Its too expensive to just leave it dead. What kind of problems am i going to get into taking it apart to clean with a toothbrush, and alcohol? I was told that the I/O board was most likely the first thing to change.
Can you point me in the right direction for video repairs that should be useful, or tell me to scrap it?
