Liquid damage to keyboard, display backlight went out.

Hey I have a Chromebook Pixel (2013) that was working fine until soda spilled on my keyboard near the 40 pin connector on the motherboard. I took the laptop apart and cleaned off the soda and corrosion. There was corrosion on a resistor(?) named r005 and after I cleaned it I noticed it looks fried. The display works when connected to an external monitor. I can still see on the display only if I have a flashlight over it. What could be the reasons for my led backlight to go out? I know this is a unpopular computer but any help is appreciated.

I had a similar issue but corrosion affected the inductor (PL7) on the top side. I tried to replace it, i'm thinking I overheated something else like the TI backlight controller :(

I couldn't find any diagrams of the Pixel motherboard online, which makes it basically impossible to fix, so I just ended up buying a new one on eBay.

the fuse is the white one with a K on it. I bet it is shorted. Just replace it. I know almost a year later. But maybe for others.

hi, by "shorted" you mean that it's blown, so i can measure infinite resistance beetwen its ends, or that it has zero resistance measured? my backlight is broken too...
