How To Fix Macbook Not Turning on?

Here is what to do if your Macbook refuses to power on.

1.One of the first things to try is to power cycle your Macbook. Do this by holding down the Power button while the Laptop is plugged out for 15-20 seconds. Next press the power button for 5 seconds and it should power on. You may have to try this more than once.

2.Plug in your Laptop and keep it plugged in for 30 minutes to a hour and then try power on. Do not attempt to power on until at least 30 minutes.

3.Switch your charger, try borrowing one or buying a new one. A defective charger can prevent your device from powering up and you may not even notice your device is not charging. I suggest you borrow a matching original charger and only replace or buy original charger from Apple.

I suggest only originals as third party brands may be defective or cause issues.

4.Switch charge ports, if your device uses USB-C then the charge port may be at fault. Also clean the port on the Macbook and that of the Adapter.

5.Remove all accessories from the Laptop such as dongles etc. and try power on while plugged in directly.

6.Try connecting your Macbook to a external monitor, the display on your device may be faulty, in which case the Macbook will come up on a monitor indicating a faulty display or some hardware issue that will need to be repaired.
