Always needing to reset SMC + Fans running at full speed
For reference, I’ve done some troubleshooting and replaced DC-in at [post|539482]. '''Latest steps to replicate issue, ''consistently'':''' # Failure to boot up post shutdown/sleep/close lid. # Initiate force shut down by holding power button down. # Power up with power button again. Fans will run at full speed. MacBook can be used this way but it runs at full speed constantly. # Not wanting to use the computer this way, I force shut down by holding power button down. And then reset SMC by holding CTRL+OPT+SHIFT+POWER buttons down for 10 seconds. # Power up with power button again. Fans run at normal speed. At this point '''if''' the MacBook goes back into state #1 (i.e. shutdown/sleep/close lid), I won’t be able to “power up” again. I’ll then continue with step #2. '''Troubleshooting Summary:''' 1. Replaced DC-in, ok. 2. Wall socket checked out, ok. 3. Clean installation of latest OS, ok. 4. Charger using original one that came with my MacBook, ok. Please help!
