My MacBook Pro 13" won't turn on

Hi I have a mid 2009 13.3" 2.26GHz MacBook Pro I was removing the battery to get to the magic pad to clean the edges so it would click, I frequently replugged the battery in to double check it was still working which it was, however I wasn't wearing any anti static guard and was forced to pick it up and move it without thinking I must have touched the logic board assumingly, because now it won't turn on at all, battery life side button displays zero light the MagSafe charger displays a small green light if any and the macbook doesn't turn on without the battery in either, I'd greatly appreciate any help

Hopefully not a logic board problem

Leave it unplugged overnight - with the battery disconnected then try a boot Restart (Control-Command-Power buttons at the same time) with just the ac adaptor reconnected.

The computer should boot if undamaged... it will run a bit slower without the battery. If it fails to start you've probably shorted out the logic board.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Ok thank you I'll try that tonight and I'll let you know how it goes


Didn't work :/


Then it would appear to me you shorted out your logic board. Either part out the machine or replace the logic board. Mind your ESD procedures.
