If you’re experiencing issues with your MacBook Air not charging or even turning on, you’re not alone. However, before taking it into a repair shop, there are a few things you can try to fix it yourself.
First, try power cycling your MacBook by unplugging the power cable and holding down the power button for up to 10 seconds. Then, reconnect the power cable and see if the issue is resolved.
If power cycling doesn’t work, the issue could be a faulty charger. Try using a different AC adapter or charging cable to isolate the issue. If your charger is not working, you may need to purchase a new one.
Another solution is to reset the PRAM (Parameter Random Access Memory) by holding down the Command + Option + P + R keys and turning on the MacBook. Keep holding the keys until you hear the MacBook restart, then release the keys.
If none of the above solutions work, try resetting the SMC (System Management Controller) by shutting down the MacBook and unplugging the power cable. Then, press the Shift + Control + Option + Power button at the same time. Release all the keys simultaneously and wait for the light on the power cable to flicker. Finally, restart your MacBook.
If you’ve tried all of these solutions and your MacBook still won’t charge or turn on, it may be time to take it into a repair shop. But hopefully, one of these solutions has helped you fix the issue.
