battery – MacBook A1398 has been turned off for years and won’t activate

I’ve received a MacBook A1398 that has been laying round on a shelve for at least 7 years which I’d wish to attempt to revive. I’ve attached the MagSafe charger for round 12 hours and retains displaying the strong orange gentle. When making an attempt the facility button in a number of durations (single faucet, 3 secs, 5 secs, 10 secs and 20 secs) nothing occurs. No spinning followers, no lights, nothing.

I’m no electrical engineer, however I’d be completely wonderful altering out the battery. Although, I’m undecided if it’s the battery that wants alternative and ideally wish to stop spending pointless cash.


  1. Is there any method for me to analyse what’s unsuitable with the machine?
  2. If the battery is useless, wouldn’t the MacBook skip the battery and nonetheless boot if it’s related to the wall?
  3. Wouldn’t it have any probability when hooking up the MacBook longer to the wall than I already did?

Edit: I simply observed that the MacBook’s fan is consistently revving up and down in intervals of 1 second or so. Most likely not sufficient energy to undergo?
