(Will not launch after power on) MacBook Pro 2015 Retina

Good afternoon everyone,

My brother had an accidental beer spill on his MacBook Pro 2015 Retina laptop. It worked great before the spill. After the spill, the Laptop started having issues. It powers on, but only to a black screen with a question mark folder icon. Does anybody know what to do after this point? And what maybe got damaged during the spill? Hard drive? Logic board? If you have any toubleshooting advice, please let me know thank you.

-Dan

OOOF, you powered it on after spilling electrically conductive liquid on it ( 0.0 )

It's not a guaranteed fix, but try to dry it out with rice. (Go to the supermarket, spend less than $5 on a big heaping bag of white rice, pour the rice in a bag large enough to fit the computer in, seal the bag, wait 3 or so days, try and power it on again.

Oh yeah, side note, try to cover any openings large enough for grains of rice to get into it. (Try not to cover them all the way, just enough to keep rice out).

Yeah he powered it on after unfortunately. We did the rice, montha have passed since and we started looking into it again. Still same issue. Thanks for the response! :)
