Hey guys, just 2 hours ago, I had accidently spilt half a cup of water onto my macbook. I am using a Macbook 2013 Retina display, and the water went on the speakers and the keyboard. I turned it back on, everything was fine, but It will only work with the power cord plugged, when unplugged it shuts down instantly. Also what I've noticed is that the battery is stuck at 95% and is not charging. I have tried to reset SMC and stuff but I'm not sure what to do now. Can someone tell me what the problem is?

Its asking me to replace the battery, when I've had this laptop for less than half a year....

For the love of all that's holy STOP USING THAT COMPUTER IMMEDIATELY!!!!

You have **NO IDEA** where that water is seeping into and what its about to short out. The machine needs to be powered off, completely disassembled and all parts stuck into a giant bag of rice for a few days. You're taking a TREMENDOUS risk with a very expensive computer.

If there's an Apple Store near you, take it in and be honest about what happened. NOW.

Fingers crossed the logic board does not fail which usually happens using when wet!
Okay I have turned it on after not using for 12 hours, everything is fine except for the same problem. Is my logic board broken? If I let it dry for a few more days will it go away? omg I hate this i can't use anythingggggggg

I don't mean to be rude, but what part of "If there's an Apple Store near you, take it in and be honest about what happened. NOW." are you having trouble with?

"Everything" is not "fine" if the computer will not run unplugged. This is a BIG problem!

Spilling a half cup of water on a laptop computer was the problem. Did you read the "I spilled liquid on my laptop" thread I linked. "Survival rates" in this situation without spending a lot of money to repair them are very very very low.

Sorry to be so negative. But when failure rates are 95% or greater in this situation. There really is no easy way to "sugar-coat" things. And of course this situation is TOTALLY avoidable. Don't drink or place liquids close to laptop/notebook computers!!!
