2012 MBA not turning on

  fsa259 23:20 17 Dec 2014

I'm posting here just in case I've missed something before taking it to the Genius bar. My MBA is now not switching on. There are no signs of life when I press the power button.

  • The charger is an original one and does turn amber when I plug it in.
  • The MBA was repaired last week: new screen because of dead pixels and a new battery because the existing one was only charging to 70% of normal max capacity. (all through Apple).
  • SMC reset made no difference.
  • It doesn't have a user removable battery for me to try to take out and try.

I'm just really frustrated as the only available genius appointment is on the 23rd and desperately need to get work done before then.

Is there anything else I could possibly try?

Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

Many thanks in advance.
