Title:

MacBook won't power on from battery

Text:

I have a MacBook 12" 2016 model.

It will only power on when AC power is connected.  No response from power button when disconnected. The white power LED on the MLB is on with AC disconnected.

If I power on with AC connected, then remove the power, the MacBook will remain on.

I have attempted SMC and PRAM reset, to no avail.

Does anybody have any insight?
