    Exclamation mbp 2011 dead..need urgent help
    Hi i have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011),

    when i try to switch it on

    1: the sleep light blinks once
    2: the cpu fan starts and stops in 5 seconds
    3: no screen
    4: no boot up
    5: no startup chime

    when i connect it to the charger

    1: the sleep light blinks after small intervals
    2: the cpu fan starts and stops in 5 seconds and at regular intervals
    3: no screen
    4: no boot up
    5: no startup chime

    what do i do about it? any suggestions i should try on, actually there is no apple care anywhere near, its about 650 kms away.

    I have uploaded it on youtube : you can see it here but i dont know if i should put up my link.

    MacBook Pro (13-inch, Early 2011) Startup problem - YouTube

    hi i tried the smc reset, didnt work,
    and also i changed both the RAM chips, still didnt work, any other thing which can be done, because im really really worried. It is my source of livelihood.

    can something else be done?????

    seems to be water damaged and the first one when earthed shows a voltage of 13.1
    battery Pins 3-6 Also Give 12.8 V without magsafe and even with magsafe.

    some other updates:

    1: battery has been charged completely
    2: another thread opened by username jimanz11 yesterday has a similar problem, i taking cue from his pic have uploaded my readings here as well. (my readings are written in white) and taken after attaching magsafe
    3: the white fuse near the battery conecter shows 0.5 ohms
    4: magsafe board shows 0,17.3,3.35,17.3,0 readings
    5: magsafe brown fuse shows 0 ohms


    If anyone can help please do

    That's your answer. If you suspect (or know) that this computer is water damaged...then that's the problem.

    Water + Macbook = Dead MacBook

    How was it water damaged? Was the water quickly removed? How long since it was water damaged? Did you instantly remove all power and battery when the water hit?

    Best suggestion? Sell it for parts on eBay and such and when you buy another laptop keep all fluids well and truly away.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
