A possible fix for a Mac that won't power up
Authored by: Detrius on Apr 11, '05 07:37:37PM

The geniuses really aren't.

This was a simple PMU issue. There's no reason to waste your time with pulling the battery out. Just push the button on the logic board.

ACSA 10.3, ACTC 10.3, ACHDS 10.3, ACDT, ACPT

A possible fix for a Mac that won't power up

Resetting the CUDA, PMU or SMU for power related issues is such a basic step that I find it hard to believe that ACHDS, ACDT and ACPT certified techs (which is what Geniuses are) would not have tried that.

There probably was a logic board issue after all.

I found it hard to believe myself, but it's what happened. I subsequently managed to retrieve the machine and reset the PMU - now it works fine. There was nothing wrong with the logic board.
