My MacBook Pro is not switching on, tried everyth

So my macbook stopped working a few days ago. The problem arised when one day, i left it un used for the whole day and while at night, I tried to switch it on, but it didn’t. I tried many keyboard combinations including safe boot, SMC, PRAM etc. But the shift ctrl option cmd and power combination worked and it switched on. But after 1 min of use, it shut down again, so i used the same combination again. After some time, it stablised and after a few hours, i switched it off without charging overnight.

Next day same problem, but none of the combinations worked, but it went back to work a few hours later with no problems in restarting. HOWEVER, the problem came up again and it didn’t switch on ever since. There was no liquid damage or falls but I did suspect humidity problems. The shift ctrl option and power changes power light indicator from amber to green when released after 10 secs as of now (the macbook charges normally) as of the current state of the macbook. I have bought a torx screw kit to look around the back. This is what ive tried till now.

All key combinations ( almost every permutations)

Power cycle reset

Kept it under air conditioning with the backopen to release humidity

Cleaned the logic board with isopropyl alcohol

Tried the power pads and shorting the keyboard ribbon connector to switch on

Removing and re inserting the battery connector

I havent tried removing any component wires to test where the fault is and also the isnt an apple authorised centre near me now. The smc reset causes the indicator colour to change, so is a logic board issue ruled out? Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks!

Edit

I just came from a cold dry place to a more humid place for the holidays, so i guess humidity may have been a factor but this only started a couple of days after I arrived.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Where did you leave your laptop on the day it stopped working? Does your laptop work when you have it plugged into the charger?

I left it on a table near a closed window, and it did rain that evening. And no, it doesnt work with the charger on.

Try powering it up without the ssd installed to see if it will work then.

I tried, still not working but the connector light changed. I see a little green stuff and little tiny water stains on the logic board, where the ssd was.

Try cleaning it again with the isopropyl alcohol where you saw the water streaks.

I cleaned the entire logic board with isopropyl alcohol, both th eback and front, reassembled the board and tried it out again, still no luck but the smc reset still works.

I have this same issue. Just moved to a house close to the beach, and the humidity and salt air are definitely the cause. Every time I bring the MacBook into the Apple store it starts working again because of the AC and low humidity.They checked it out and everything hardware is perfectly fine with no water damage whatsoever. It is a shame Apple has no resolution and are not even aware of this issue. My only option is to buy a new laptop and hope the newer MacBooks don’t have this issue.
