Perform a Power Cycle
Step 1 – Unplug all the power cables and turn off your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air by pressing and holding the “Power Button”.
Step 2 – Continue holding the power button for 10 more seconds and reconnect the cables. Keep pressing the power button for 10 more seconds.
Step 3 – Now, reboot your MacBook again and see if the issue of Mac won’t start up is gone or not.

Check Your Adapter and Charging Cable
In many cases, MacBook won’t turn on issue arises due to a faulty AC adapter/charging cable. Try swapping the adapter and the cable with a different one to see if MacBook turns on or not. In case it’s working fine with the new cable/adapter, the only solution would be to replace the entire charging setup with a new one.

Check the Hardware
If you’re using Mac Desktop, the issue might be caused due to loosely connected cables. Take a look at the cables and make sure that each connection is firm. In case you’ve recently opened your Mac to install a new hardware component like a hard-drive or a RAM, this might also cause the Mac won’t turn on issue. In this case, either reinstall the old hardware or make sure that each component is perfectly placed in its socket.

Reset the NVRAM
Step 1 – Shut down your MacBook.
Step 2 – Simultaneously press and hold “Command + Option + P + R” keys and wait for your MacBook to turn on.
Step 3 – Your MacBook will play the second reboot chime. Release all the keys once you hear the sound.

Reset System Management Controller
Step 1 – Shut down your MacBook and unplug the power cable.
Step 2 – Connect the power cable again and press the Shift + Ctrl + Option/Alt keys and the power button simultaneously.
Step 3 – Release all the buttons at the same time and you’ll notice a small flicker in your power cable’s light. This is an indication that SMC has been reset successfully.
Step 4 – Restart your MacBook and check if the “MacBook Air does not turn on” issue is gone or not.

Re-Install MacOS
Reinstalling the entire MacOS would probably the last solution on your list.
Step 1 – Shut down your MacBook and press the power button again. Boot it in recovery mode by pressing “Command + R”.
Step 2 – The macOS utility window will appear on your screen with different options. Use the arrow keys to choose “Reinstall macOS”.
Step 3 – If asked, enter your Apple ID and continue with the process. It may take several minutes for the OS to reinstall completely.
Step 4 – Once the setup wizard quits, follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

  3. Thank you 😢. Alt, control, option and power key combo worked for me. My Mac was completely dark, usually when the power was dead, it show the charger symbol. I also charged it and nothing was showing. After the Alt, control, option and power key combo my Mac turned on.
