Heat / Fluid Spill issues
OK, so, here's a bit of an interesting problem.
I have a 13” MacBook Pro 2009, that's had light fluid spill. Starts up, but got really hot around the area where the charger plugs into the machine (not the area where the battery is).
I thought it might be the charging port, so I cleaned that out, and am somewhat afraid I might have cleaned it too well, as I'm not sure the bare metal is supposed to be showing (see picture below).
Anyhow, it gets slightly less hot now, but during install still gets a bit warm on the quarter of the machine that's on the corner where power plugs in. (not super hot, maybe 35-37*C)
During install, power seems to indicate battery is charing, but without percentage, and I'm not even sure system recognizes battery. When charger is removed, all power dies.
Does this system sound like it's safe running? Mainly asking as I don't want anything to explode in my face.
No signs of fluid spill damage inside as far as I can tell.
