My MacBook Air won't turn on?

After working completely fine one day, my macbook air suddenly refuses to turn on. The charger light is orange and works fine, I tried an SMC reset and the charger changes to green for a second then reverts to orange as expected. I have also tried disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting. I have also tried holding the power in for 10 then plugging in the charger while holding the power button. Nothing seems to work!! I really appreciate the help and thank you very much in advance.

The MagSafe charger only shows Amber when it's charging the battery. Once the battery is charged it will go Green. If it never goes Green you likely have a bad battery.

As your system should still be under warranty (2017 models one year in parts) I would recommend you go to an Apple Store and have them deal with it.

The light on the charger recently changed to green indicating that it is most likely not a battery fault.


Not Good ;-{ Then your logic board in trouble. Still go to Apple!
