Spilled soda on yoga 11e chrome book. Now the red thinkpad light keeps blinking and it won't turn on

Hello. So I spilled some soda on my yoga 11e chrome book and now the red thinkpad light keeps blinking and the laptop won't start. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Thee quick answer is "no".  Liquids are not good for electronics, and the worst liquids are soda and coffee

Yes, but the cost might not be practical, depending on how many parts were affected.  It could be as simple as a shorted power switch or all the electronics could be damaged
