Laptop wont boot up. Magsafe light works perfectly
I charged my iphone with my Macbook. The last time I looked it had 91% charge in it. I connected the phone and closed the lid and put it inside the sleeve. After my iPhone charged to 100%, I removed it's cable from the laptop and tried to wake the Macbook from sleep but it didn't respond. I connected the magsafe power adapter, assuming the battery might have died but it still won't power on.
I tried SMC reset, the light went from orange to green and then back to orange,(guessin
PS: I cannot hear any sound when I press the power button. Fans dont seem to run as well.
Can anyone help me diagnose and repair this issue. Thanks in advance.

You could have a cracked internal battery. My MacBook Air would often refuse to start, and if it did sometimes the battery wouldn't be recognized, but when it was showed good state and low cycles.
After a few frustrating situations where one day it wouldn't boot, and then suddenly it would I opened it up find the battery had a crack running through it. (I recalled when travelling earlier some @sshat started to shoved his laptop bag on top of my laptop bag in the overhead bin-I yelled at him but apparently damage was done that did not immediately show up)

I love it! Just give it a kick in the pants, that'll fix it.
It sounds like you have a loose (damaged) connection somewhere in the power circuit. Power problems tend to be hard problem to isolate out when the problem goes away. Extreme temperature changes or minor flexing of the case can help root out the problem.
You could also touchup the solder joints on the power circuit where you can. As Machead stated your battery could be damaged. Again a bad inter-connection between the cells.
If you are still covered by AppleCare I would get it to Apple to checkout. Make sure to tell them the power is flaky.
