Hello,

So I have a Macbook A1342 that's currently exhibiting the following symptoms:

Upon pressing the power (or shorting the pads), the screen is black and the sleep light indicator is lit solid white. It will stay on for a bit (about 10 seconds or so) and just as the fans speed up, it will turn itself off and reboot on its own. After this, it will stay on and the fans will rev up after a bit. Only this time the machine doesn't reboot, the fans stay on high speed and the sleep indicator remains lit white.

If I remove the MagSafe charger and try to boot off the battery, it will do the same as above, but with one major difference: it will turn itself off just as the fans speed up. It will then continuously go on a reboot loop, always turning itself off just as the fans speed up.

Any idea what this might be? Anyone experienced something like this?
