Will not turn on, MagSafe doesn't glow

So i had a bit of an accident when i had My MacBook in My bed last night. I was logged out so it was at the login screen. It suddenly fell to the floor so I picked it up. Tried to log in but my keys wouldn't type anything. The trackpad was working so I pressed the shutdown onscreen icon.

After that I tried to power it up but no response from the powerbutton what so ever. The MagSafe was glowing orange. I plugged it out to take it to my desk and when I plugged the MagSafe back in it didn't glow at all. I have verified the magsafe works with another computer. Any ideas?

I took off the back end revealing logic board, battery and all else. Just to see if anything looks broken. I can't find anything. But I put in the MagSafe and sit back wondering what could be wrong. After a few minutes the fan started spinning. But only for a few seconds. I'm lost. Any help is appreciated.


unplug your keyboard and your battery leave them unplugged also look at where the magsafe dc jack plugs its in 2 spots a flat ribbon and a plug- in type make shure they are thight then connect your magsafe and report back what happens


Is there any guide to unplugging the keyboard to this model? With images?


I found this video wich i'm following step by step. For those who need kbd service here it is:


I disassembled it completely then reassembled it making sure all connectors were tight. Now the powerbutton works and I got a reaction from the computer.

The fan fired up slightly longer than before. But still no chime and no glow on the MagSafe.

Are you telling us this is a 2015 machine and you actually are planning to VOID your warranty and stick your grubby fingers into it?
