So I bought a MBP 2010 15" 2.66Ghz i7 8Gb ram with liquid damage the other day. My problem is that it does not receive power. The battery indicator lights do not give my any feedback when I press the button. When Magsafe is connected there is a low dim green light and occasionally it flashes an amber color. The power button does nothing. I have reset the SMC and I have even gone to my local Apple Certified repair shop and bought a new DC Magsafe board. None of these thing have solved any problems. Cleaning the Logic Board with alcohol and a toothbrush made it so that I got any light out of the Magsafe. Does anyone have any ideas?

Very very likely the logic board is damaged due to the liquid spill. You probably need a new logic board. Replacement logic boards are expensive.

Ohh dear bad buy anything liquid damaged as liquid + electronics all too often = death.

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!
