The dog knocked over a glass of wine, splashing the keyboard. Immediately powered down and unplugged, dried surface and then left open with keyboard side down to allow for drainage in case anything made it into the case, and allowed to air dry for 12 hours.  Now nothing happens when power button pressed. When plugged into power supply the light on the caps lock key flashes intermittently.

I have power cycled And done an smc reset.

Not sure if still under warranty, purchased in March.

    System is dead. Needs at least the Logic board replaced, more then likely other parts also. Probably cheaper to buy a new computer. Maybe one that comes with a Accidental Warranty or one that can be bought for it.

    So I bought what is essentially now a 1400$ doorstop,because I believed that apple made a better product that they stand behind. I have repaired a toshiba that was dropped in a puddle without problem, Ian so disappointed to see that the company that made my old Iie and macs from the 1 st one onward, now has abandoned the quality and reliability that made me become a Mac person.

     

    No you didn't buy a Door Stop, Your DOG made it a Door Stop and that you placed a glass of wine close enough to the Mac and then let the dog run amuck knocking over that glass of wine.

     

    No one to blame but yourself.

     

    Yes Mac notebooks seem to be very susceptible to failure from ANY liquid spilt on them. But in the end whose fault is that? The manufacturer or the person that spilt or allowed liquid to be spilt on the Electronic Device?

     

    I'd go with the person that spilt or allow the spill of liquid on the Electronic Device.
