Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds, and then try powering it back on. Sometimes Apple laptops with near-dead batteries will get stuck in a sleep state, and it's necessary to kill the power.

If that doesn't work, unscrew and take off the bottom casing, disconnect the battery, and see if your machine powers on with the battery disconnected. If it does, power off and reconnect the battery and power the machine on. You're most likely fine. If it doesn't, you've got bigger issues.

The Air should start with a dead battery on wall-plug power alone. You could try to disconnect the battery and try it with just the charger, Hope it helps.

My MacBook Air "Core i5" 1.4 13" (Early 2014) A1466 also completely dead. It charges but it will not turn on. I have tried resetting SMC, other resets as well it's just dead completely! I think my devices were on charge and same thing happened to my iphone 5 as well. Could be some spike in the electricity or something. I'm not worried about my iphone I need to bring back my Air to life. Any ideas people?
