At Mac.Infinity, we understand the frustration that comes with a MacBook Pro refusing to turn on when you need it the most. Our comprehensive guide aims to assist you in resolving this issue swiftly and efficiently, ensuring your MacBook Pro gets back to its optimal state. Let's dive into the troubleshooting steps.
Identifying the Issue
Reason Behind MacBook Not Turning On
When faced with a seemingly lifeless MacBook Pro, various factors could be at play. It might be a faulty power cord, a problematic charging cable, or a deeper hardware or software issue.
Don't panic; follow our step-by-step guide to pinpoint and address the problem.
1. Check the Blank Screen
A black screen is a common laptop issue. Start by ensuring the brightness isn't set to zero. If that's not the issue, proceed to check for any unusual sounds. If there are noises without a display, the problem might lie with the screen.
2. Boot to Recovery Mode
If you hear feedback but still have a black screen, try booting into Recovery Mode using Command + R. If successful, the macOS utility screen should appear. Reboot your MacBook, and if the issue persists, move on to the next steps.
3. Ensure Your Mac Has Power
Connect your MacBook Pro charger securely and check for any damages to the power cord. Use Apple-branded cables whenever possible, as third-party cables may not provide the required amperage. If the issue persists, proceed to the power cycle.
4. Go Through a Power Cycle
This seemingly illogical step can work wonders. Plug your MacBook Pro into the charger, hold down the power button for ten seconds, then release. Wait a few seconds and press the power button again. This simple yet effective power cycle might just bring your MacBook Pro back to life.
5. Reset the SMC (System Management Controller)
Unplug the laptop, hold down Shift + Control + Option + Power for ten seconds, release, reconnect the charger, and then press the power button. This reset might resolve issues related to fan control, temperature monitoring, and more.
6. Reset the PRAM / NVRAM
Hold down Command + Option + P + R while turning on the device. Release the keys after the MacBook restarts twice. This reset addresses minor issues stored in NVRAM/PRAM.
7. Unplug Your Accessories
Disconnect all USB devices, printers, or other connections. Restart your MacBook Pro. If the MacBook is still not turning On, it might be time to seek professional help.
