Cannot Power On

cannot power on

There can be several reasons why a MacBook may not power on. Here are some of the most common causes:

  • Water Damage
  • MotherBoard Hardware Short Circuit
  • Wear and Tear 
  • Device always on Standby Mode
  • Device always on Sleep Mode
  • Never Shut Down Regularly 
  • Frequent Over Night Charging 
  • No Maintenance was done over the years 

If your MacBook won't turn on, it can be frustrating, especially if you rely on it for work or personal use. Here are some steps you can take to fix and solve the issue:

  1. Check the power connection: Make sure that your MacBook is properly connected to a power source. If you are using a MagSafe adapter, check if the LED light is on. If the light is not on, try unplugging and re-plugging the adapter.

  2. Reset the SMC: If your MacBook still won’t turn on, try resetting the System Management Controller (SMC). The SMC controls power management and can sometimes get stuck, causing issues. To reset the SMC, follow these steps:

  • Shut down your MacBook.
  • Connect the power adapter.
  • Press and hold the Shift, Control, and Option keys and the power button simultaneously for 10 seconds.
  • Release all the keys and the power button.
  • Press the power button to turn on your MacBook.

  1. Reset the PRAM: Another step you can take is to reset the Parameter RAM (PRAM). The PRAM stores certain settings, and resetting it can help resolve issues. To reset the PRAM, follow these steps:
  • Shut down your MacBook.
  • Press the power button, and immediately press and hold the Command, Option, P, and R keys.
  • Keep holding the keys until your MacBook restarts and you hear the startup sound twice.
  • Release the keys.

  1. Check the display: If your MacBook appears to be on but the display is not working, try connecting it to an external display to see if the issue is with the display. If the external display works, there may be an issue with your MacBook’s display.

  2. Contact Support: If none of the above steps work, it may be a hardware issue. In this case, it is best to contact Apple Support or take your MacBook to Esmond Service Center.

In conclusion, if your MacBook won’t turn on, don’t panic. Try the above steps to troubleshoot the issue. If the issue persists, contact Apple Support or a professional repair center to get your MacBook up and running again.
