i7 2.3GHZ won't power on after electricity went out at home.
Power went out for a few hours at my home. Mac Mini 2012 Server (i7 2.3 GHZ) now will not power back on.
1.) All other devices plugged into the surge protector still work, including my Thunderbolt Display.
2.) Purchased online, not original power cable. Tried the power cord from my Apple TV. Nope.
3.) Have tried outlets all over the house. Nope.
4.) SMC reset hasn't worked. Although I'm not convinced I'm doing it right. The instructions I've read (unplug, wait 15s, plug back in, wait 5s, hit power) seem too simple to reset the System Controller.
Haven't gone to Apple yet. Any thoughts before I pony up the cash for the Genius Bar?
Is this a good question?
