Hello, I followed this guide and no the pixelbook will no longer power on. I reassembled exactly as described here. No light is coming on when I plu in the official charger, have tried other chargers as well. Any suggestions? I’ve been holding refresh + power and ESC but no change. Thanks…

lol $@$*…that’s reassuring ^^^ I was just about to order a replacement. Did you ever get it to turn back on? Or figure out what you did wrong lol?

What I read after the fact is that if you don’t do a full power off (hold refresh and power for 5 seconds until it is completely off) then the process here could short the motherboard. Which in my case it did. And I really wish these instructions had included something about that.

Ah I see! I just performed it last night actually, I did a regular shutdown via the “shutdown” button in the settings, everything went just fine luckily. Check out the corrosion that was causing my issue! http://imgur.com/gallery/cCfuGh2

In my settings under "devices" I didn't even have an option named “trackpad" - and that would be why,
