Introduction

After water damage, the on-off button of the MacBooks is usually damaged as it is part of the keyboard. The MacBook is generally in working conditions, but it is not possible to switch it on using the on-off button.

To switch the MacBook on, people use the on-pad power switches. However, in some cases, this does not work. Here, I am explaining another method for switching the MacBooks on in this case.

This is through disconnecting the charger and the battery, then connect the battery after few seconds then the charges.

Open your MacBook. To do so, unplug the charger, flip you MacBook and unscrew the 8 screws on the bottom.

  • Plug the charger. You should see the cooling fan working, even though the led of the MacBook is closed (a sign that the MacBook is switching on).
