Won't turn on, but randomly starts.
I have been using my MacBook Pro 13" Retina for about 3 years.
Last week Friday I tried to start up the system but it refused to. I tried the SMC reset but it didn't start. The only thing I noticed is that if a USB Thumb drive with a LED light on it is connected to the USB port, it momentarily receives power (LED lights up) when the power button is pressed but nothing starts. After above an hour of back and forth, out of the blue, the system chimed and started working like nothing happened.
I used it normally then shut it down. The next day it refused to come up again. Tried everything included disconnecting the battery. It still didn't start. Like the previous day, the MacBook magically started while I was watching TV. Used it again and today (Monday) it has refused to start. I'm thinking of giving it to a friend to take it to the UK (I live in Nigeria) for possible repair.
Please I'm open to suggestions, similar experiences and possible solutions.
Is this a good question?
