apple macbook pro 13 black screen

Hello, I've got a apple macbook pro 13. Whenever I turn the macbook on, I get a black screen plus the Apple Chime doesn't chime at start up. What is going on and how I can go about fixing it myself, thanks!

That's a model that spanned many years.

There has never been one thing that causes this. Get estimates.

Um

That's not a good answer, I can go to places to "Get Estimates" but I've decided to seek answers here.

You need to pose a better question.

As presented you don't share the full model number, year and such.

Also the failure is just one of the usual and does not mean it's the board, memory, drive or a specific part. I find that folk new to repair often go through a learning stage where they start off thinking there is a fix for everything given such detail.

I see Kees has the other usual answer to your too short question so I'll expand a little. Most of the dead ones I see like that need a new motherboard and main battery as they are so old the battery is long gone.

Since that's so costly it's best to get estimates.

Re: fix yourself

Find out what component is broken and replace that.

Repair shops are better equipped to diagnose the problem and to swap spare parts than you are yourself. Your choice how to tackle this,
