Introducing the MacBook Air

The MacBook Air is one of the thinnest laptop around, making it portable and convenient for everyday life. With a full-length keyboard and available in 11-inch and 13-inch display, it comes with various features to deliver powerful performance for the user. It is the go-to laptop for students and professionals.

However, like every other laptop, the MacBook Air is not immune to slowdowns, bugs, and other issues that may need repairs. There are times when your MacBook Air does not turn on or fails to power up even when you press the power button.

This article will look at some of the common MacBook Air issues and how you can keep your device safe and functional with simple repair services.


Does not turn on

Firstly, check that the battery is not dead and if it needs charging, give it a while before turning it on. If the MacBook Air does not charge, try a different power cable or adapter. If it still does not turn on, then it could be a booting problem wherein the macOS does not boot properly or abruptly crashes and shuts down.

Boot your Mac in Safe Boot (Safe Mode) to troubleshoot the issue. If it still does not fix the issue, chances are that the motherboard is faulty. When this happens, do not try to fix it as you may incur costly repairs. Instead, bring your laptop to the MacBook Air repair Singapore service center to get a quick fix at an affordable price.


Turns off when the charger disconnected

There are also times when your fully charged MacBook Air suddenly turns off when the charger is removed. This is the most common MacBook Air issue faced by users. The sudden shut down of the laptop once the charger is removed is mainly due to a dead battery. Even if your MacBook Air’s battery is dead, it will still run fine when it is running on a power adapter but as soon as you remove it, the laptop will turn off immediately.

To resolve this issue, you may need to get the battery replaced. Visit a MacBook Air battery replacement online service center and place your order for the fix to ensure a 6-month warranty on the replacement battery. 


Flashing question mark on startup

The flashing question mark during startup is another common issue with the MacBook Air. Your MacBook Air flashes a question mark when they are not able to find a bootable operating system on startup.

There are several reasons for this issue: Your OS is corrupt, your laptop does not have enough RAM or your hard drive has some trouble. To troubleshoot the problem, run Apple’s Disk Utility - the program that keeps the hard disk in tip-top shape and repairs the disk.

If this still does not work, you need to reinstall the operating system by installing more RAM. 


Bluetooth or AirPort issue

Sometimes you may notice that your MacBook Air is showing connectivity issues and displays a “No Hardware Found” message or if you use Apple’s AirPort devices and it stops and plays intermittently, then you need to fix the Bluetooth and AirPort problems. This issue could be due to the connector cable to the wireless board becoming loose. Hire a certified technician to get the problem fixed easily and affordably.

As you can see, these are some of the common MacBook Air issues that can be easily fixed to keep your laptop safe and functional. However, there are times when you need to replace the parts of your MacBook Air to expand its life and keep it working for longer.
