P53 does not boot when internal keyboard is plugged in

2020-08-23, 17:04 PM

I have had some slight water damage on my P53. After drying the laptop, I find that it will power on only if the keyboard ribbon is unplugged from the board. Otherwise, pressing the power button does nothing. Nothing happens on screen, nor does the power button lights up. The keyboard ribbon and socket appear cosmetically fine, with no visible water damage. 

 

Can anyone help identify where the issue could be? What can happen to the keyboard or its circuit that prevents the machine from even powering on?
