Hi guys,
I had an accident and I spelled yogurt on my brand new Macbook pro retina 13" !! After that it suddenly stopped working and I tried to dry it and it worked fine the next day on the battery until it got drained. Then when I tried to charge it it didnt respond so I opened the Macbook and cleaned what ever I can see and later on it started charging and the macbook worked fine again .. Now the problem is that when ever I remove the adaptor the macbook suddenly dies even the battery is fully charged and its status in the system information is normal ..
Can u please help with my problem as my macbook is still completely new and im messing with already !!

Thank you guys ..

Take it to Apple and be prepared to pay for the repairs out of pocket. Sounds like either the battery is toast or the MagSafe board/charging circuitry is bad. Any liquids and electricity to not play well together.
