Will not power up unless SMC reset is done

Apple MacBook Pro "Core i7" 2.3 15" Late 2013 (DG) Specs

Retina Late 2013 15" - ME294LL/A - MacBookPro11,3 - A1398 - 2745

I'm asking this because I had three abscessed teeth pulled yesterday, on pain medication and thinking is just not all that good today ;=() @danj

I know I know the answer but it's not coming to me.

I replaced a slightly water damaged keyboard on this machine about a year and a half ago. It has run well for the customer ever since. Running 10.11.6.

Was able to all updates.

When machine is shut down it will do nothing: when trying to power up from power button. Just dead, no sounds no lights.

Did an SMC reseat and it starts right up and runs perfectly.

I can't remember right now what this is. Hoping someone can jog my memory.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@danj fever is down but I'm still drawing a blank on this one. Thanks for the good advice on not ding anything when brain is only 1/2 there.

Hope meeting mom went OK, Things are starting to get serious when you start meeting moms ;-)

@mayer - Are you able to hit the power pads to start it up?

@danj forgot where they are

This is one of the fun ones ;-{ You'll need to short across one of the pins to ground. Here's the poop: Power pads

Thanks Dan, I better wait till my hands are steadier and I can count before attempting it.

Fought with this one for three weeks. New battery.

Everything worked it just wouldn't start. Could not find anything.

I replaced the keyboard today. It all works now.

Just that one bad key.
