The computer won't turn on so I can't do a SMC reset the laptop has been on charge for a few hours with a faint green light, other forums say press and hold various key alt control command and power others say power "R" and "T" as well as Alt and control.

You didn't read the SMC Reset instructions.
If it doesn't work, take it in for service.

Thank you so very much for this post!!!! I took off the back, cleaned out the dust, only thing I had to do was unplug the battery from the logic board and plug it back in and I was up and running! Typing this on it now! I really thought all was lost because my baby wouldn't do a thing! You really helped me a great deal and saved me a ton of money. I had already talked to apple and had just looked at my calendar to see what day to schedule an appointment with them when I decided to try it one one more time! Thanks again!!!!

I'll be honest, I was dubious. But did exactly what you said and it worked a treat! Thanks fella!

Dude honestly, I was thinking of shifting away from apple and buying a windows PC as a logic board replacement will be too expensive for me. You just saved me! It works perfectly! Thanks a ton
