Il mio MacBook Pro 2019 nuovo di 3 mesi non vuole accendersi.

Ieri sera con la batteria 1% ho spento il mac. Stamattina non vuole avviarsi, non da segni di vita.

Il mac fa solo un suono quando attacco il caricatore, poi nulla. Dopo 2 ore in carica niente.

Cosa mi consigliate?

Mahalo, mikeyd123!
I just purchased a refurbished MBP 15 (11,5) mid-2015 Retina, macOS 12.2.1, and was having an issue with the fan running non-stop, from boot-up to shut-down. Resetting the SMC seems to have addressed the fan issue. Hopefully there are no thermal issues. If there are, iʻll check back in.

I followed the reset instructions for my MacBook Retina 2017 (A1534) but now I get a Recovery Assistant & I'm asked to rest my password. I don't need to reset my password, I just want to reset to factory settings because a new owner will use this MacBook.
