    There is usually a lot more to a damaged by liquid spill laptop than just the keyboard. I would assume if it was working prior to you replacing the keyboard to doublecheck the connection of the keyboard cable to the motherboard as it is likely that you didn't properly connected the cable to the logic board. They keyboard on this model powers on the laptop.

    Hi. I did this to my laptop because I was told that I need to replace the keyboard (water damage) and I put it back together the way I took it apart and it won't turn back on. Why?

    Can you replace just thescreen cover? The screen glass etc. is fine, just a few scratches on the outer casing. If so where could I acquire one of these? Thanks! 🙂

    It's strange, inside this MBP it is quite beautiful, every board is the same colour.
