My Macbook is Not Turning On!

When your Macbook is not powering on, power problems can arise from a variety of sources or at random. It’s possible for Macbooks, especially those designed to be light and thin, to simply shut off and not come back on. We’ll go over how to assess the situation and what to do if you’re having power issues in this article.

We must first determine why the MacBook is not turning on or has no power. We can get rid of some obvious questions like, “Was there anything spilled on the laptop or are there any signs of physical damage?” so that we can move on to more pertinent ones. MacBook batteries will generally balloon after time or when it has heat issues so there can be indications of the case being swollen which is a decent sign that the battery is the issue and should be replaced before it gets dangerous. The problem may be as simple as the power button not working or as complex as logic board corrosion if something was spilled on the laptop or has been damaged by liquid. Regardless of how easy or difficult these repairs are, they should be carried out by a trained professional. If you watch videos or tutorials on how to fix this, you can try it for yourself, but if you don’t know enough or lack the skills, you might damage the laptop even more and lose all of your data. Since data is now stored directly on the logic board of more recent MacBook models, a dead logic board prevents data recovery.

One of the simplest fixes that anyone can attempt is to check the battery if you have the confidence and tools to do so. One more issue that can be checked by anybody is assuming your charging connector is bad simply by attempting to utilize one that you know works for other MacBooks. Any other repairs, other than these two checks, should be examined by a person who has previously serviced MacBooks.

Here are a few things you can try if you think you can fix your Macbook on your own. You will first need to locate a special tool because the screws on the most recent MacBooks require one. Before beginning, ensure that you ground yourself once you have the appropriate tool. This basically means that you need to get rid of the static electricity that comes from touching your hair or clothes. Any static that is on your body can short out the parts inside the PC just by even drawing near to it or contacting the parts inside. By touching a metal object that touches the floor, you can ground yourself. Subsequent to unscrewing every one of the screws on the bottom of the MacBook, you can utilize a a flat tool to release the cover. If you need to change the battery, look in the middle of the back cover to see which model it is. In tiny letters there is a model number for your MacBook that beginnings with the letter “A” and followed by four digits. Replacing a battery is genuinely straightforward and videos and tutorials can be found on the web via the model number.

You can simply look for a replacement charging adapter at a neighborhood or big-box electronics store if you are aware that the adapter is defective. Ensure you are purchasing a genuine charging adapter as third party ones can harm your laptop.

Since you wouldn’t be reading this far if you already know how to service one, it’s best to take it to a repair center if it has any other problem than these two.

As you can see, there are a variety of reasons why your MacBook might not turn on. We’ve talked about some of these issues. Before doing anything else, you should also check to see if you still have an active Apple warranty to see if you can get this fixed for free. Additionally, attempting repairs on your own may void the warranty. With older models of MacBooks, you will most likely need to get it repaired at a professional service center.
