I have a Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro.

I recently formatted my hard drive and then it went into Internet recovery mode.

It took a long time for it to download everything after which it reached the screen where it asks for my personal details to set it up. I didn’t set it up and after a few minutes when I tried to use it, nothing happened.

There’s no green or orange light if I connect a charger. Nothing happens if I press the power button - no fan movement, no chime, no display. If I connect the charger after half a day or so, the charger turns green for less than a second and dies.

What is wrong with this computer?

  • What’s the battery Loaded or empty?

    Have you checked the charger? Either that one or tried a replacement?

    I’ve tried the charger on a different MacBook Pro and it works. The battery is connected to the computer and during the internet recovery the charger was also connected.

    TBH it sounds like you have trouble with your hardware. I don't know how to help you with that. have you contacted the AppleSupport yet ?
