Before I go off on holidays to Oban again I thought I'd post pics of the currently dead battery and surrounding 'evidence' following contact with what was no more than a splash of white wine on bottom left corner of the keyboard.

Judge for yourself Mac experts. Is it the battery that has been shorted or could it be something else/something else as well?

Notably, when my hard drive failed early last year, the power itself didn't. This time it won't switch on even if plugged into the mains (which it was at the time of the spillage on Mayday). I think I'm correct in saying that the battery needs to be there and not dead to complete the circuit in any means? As in it's not an either/or - I've never seen anyone using a MacBook with an empty battery bay.

Do you know anyone with a similar machine that uses the same battery so you could try their battery to see if your Mac works with it and that would at least confirm if it is something else other than the battery?

Also...Have you checked the fuse in the mains plug/adaptor to see if it has blown or is there an indication that power is getting to the Mac?
