Right to Repair



Original post by: david ,


Hi Alan,

In the interest of thoroughness, have you tried these troubleshooting techniques?

1  Plugging your Mac Mini into a different display.

2 Plugging your Mac Mini into a different outlet.

Did any lights on the Mac mini itself come on?

If so, I would suggest trying to boot into the recovery partition, or a network image.

To this with your Mac Mini, Click the Power Button while Holding down the command + R keys, Keep holding down Command + R  until an image appears on the screen.

If  you are able to boot into recovery, open Disk Utility and check your hard drive is mounted and recognized. It may be a good idea to try reinstalling your Mac operating system.

If no image appears, Send it in to Apple, at worst they will give you a free diagnostic of the device.

Hope this is helpful!
