rMBP 13 2013 late dead after repasting

Another dumbster kicks in. I just replaced Apple's massive load of thermal paste with new one on my retina macbook pro 13", 2013 late(A1502). It does charge--I believe, at least the green light turns on-- but does not even POST. It doesn't chime nor starts the fan.

If I let the magsafe connected with the intetnal power connector unplugged, the light goes amber and turns green if I try SMC reset--so the keyboard is not dead. Tried shorting 5th and 6th pins of the keyboard connector--does not work either.

Where could I have killed? Could it be the remnant of alcohol inside the tape around the CPU or the canned air that I sprayed on it? Is there no hope but to replace the entire logic board?

You'll need to open the system up and check to see if any of the old and/or new paste got beyond the chips base

You'll need to carefully clean it all off, as many TIM's are conductive or have a capacitance!

I will check as soon as I get to as I am currently out. It might have created a thin layer or something when I was trying not to put too much. Thank you for your kind advice and I will get back to you.

By the way, if so, would it be ressurectible, even slightly?


Checked and confirmed that none of the thermal paste evaded onto the logic board; confused, I got it checked by an unauthorised--I know-- apple sort of specialist.

He says the battery is swollen and releases gas; the logic board is broken with power-related problem. Now I've got to be suspicious about it but that's quite a bit of coincidence.

Anyhow, I really do appreciate your kind advice on this matter. Now I've got to think about whether it's worth 330 bucks..
