If the new battery isn't charged that may be part of the problem... Let it charge up at least 50%. SMC reset is these steps Not just holding down the power button.

Try removing all power overnight, then reassembling and starting.

Machead I have the battery charged at 100% and still no power. When i take the battery out and try to turn the Mac on I still dont have any power. The Mag light is still green....no clue whats going on....anything i can try is greatly appreciated!


You're certain that the top case ribbon cable is properly connected to the logic board. There are MacBook won't boot at all you could try, by passing the top case/ribbon cable.
