    Info HELP needed urgently

    I was playing the Nintendo switch with my son today and i thought id switched it off, i took out the memory card and then i noticed a warning on screen saying dont take the sd card out while power is on and it said turning off.

    but it will not turn back on, ive tried everything from soft reset to hard reset

    holding power for 12 seconds, trying power and both volume controls for 12 seconds etc
    ive even stripped it down and removed the battery terminals and put them back together

    the thing is it worked after i took the card out as it powered down so im guessing its a fuse.
    does anyone have any experience with this as my son it proper upset.

    given instructions i could probably fix it myself, i just need to know what im looking for is all.

    thanks

    • Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds, then release

    • Press the power button normally once

    im pritty sure nintendo would of throughly tested removing the card while power was on to not damage the console, cos out of 50 million consoles im sure 30 million ppl will remove the card without powering the device off, and im sure nintendo wouldnt make so it blows up when you remove a card

    Did you enable auto RCM in the SXOS menu (before it died)?

    @909 I have been reading through some posts on the TX website/forums and i think its a common thing/problem so im just following a small guide on there, im just gonna charge for an hour the switch and then ill plug in the dongle and try to remove the autoRCM.

    im hoping this might fix the issue without having to purchase a new key

    I'm thinking since you got AutoRCM enabled you might not be injecting the payload as your thinking it doesn't need it?

    AutoRCM is only to avoid using the jig and you still have to inject the payload, wishful thinking on my behalf tbh as that would be a simple fix for you.

    Are you using 'TegraRcmGUI' ?

    Does it turn green when connected or stay red waiting for device in RCM mode ?

    I dunno the full story but i read somewhere that autoRCM has some small battery draw and if your battery happens to die completely while its enabled, the switch wont charge. This was later found to be wrong and that the switch will charge, just very very slowly.

    I was hoping this was going to turn into a Partyman thread for those who remember.

    @rhino yes im using that software 2.4 version.
    i install driver, then select auto inject and then add the proper payload
    i connect the usb into the pc and the other end of the micro usb i connect into the bottom of the dongle. the dongle light is green
    i then install it into the switch and the light then goes off completely no matter what i do the machine will not turn on
