MacBook Air won't turn on, charger appears to be working
My MacBook Air won't turn on at all. Last night, I closed the screen and then when I woke up it wouldn't turn on.
I have tried the basic methods like holding the power button, holding shift with the power button and the other key combos with no success.
The magsafe charger is plugged in, once it first enters the port the light is green and then becomes orange to indicate charging. However, when I do hold the shift option ctrl keys and then press the power button the magsafe changes to green for a few seconds before returning to orange. But still the laptop won't turn on.
Now for the unfortunate circumstances - I'm currently a volunteer on a remote island so my options are severely limited. I have the ability to open up the laptop, but almost no ability to check the charger other than via the light when plugged into the laptop.
Any tips on what I should try next would be greatly appreciated, and there is a chance I could get spare parts brought to the island if I need to replace some hardware (I have experience in doing that for other laptops).
Is this a good question?
