battery charges & new logic board but still won't power on

My macbook got a little wet awhile back and completely stopped working. However, the charging light on the charger would still come on and turn to green if left charging for long enough. I assumed the battery was fine and bought a new logic board. I installed the new logic board but it still won't power on. The battery stills appears to be charging. I realize that there's the possibility that the logic board I ordered could be bad also. Is there any other reason that I am overlooking that would stop the macbook from powering on?? I'm lost at this point.

Many water spills damage the keyboard as well as the logic board. Since the power button is a part of the keyboard, I'd suggest that this is why it won't turn on. I actually see this a lot.

To test this, there are two pads that you can short together to turn it on without the power button. Refer to this answer to help you find them:

Where on the logic board are the power-on pads?

Once you've found them, just use a flat screwdriver of similar metal tool to bridge the gap between them.

I'd also try disconnecting the battery just in case it is preventing is from booting.

started it via power-on pads! new logic board works and even the original logic board works! narrowed it down to only a bad keyboard! thanks for the advice!
