    Attention anyone of the older members on df do Nintendo Switch repairs?

    my lads switch has gone kaput, ive tried pluggin in another battery but still wont boot, ive tried to inject a payload via the pc and usb-c cable but no joy.

    i think it is stuck in RCM mode, but may also be a fuse as well but im not too sure.

    I think if it was stuck in RCM mode and connected to the pc with TegraRcm you would have got GREEN and connected showing up, I've not opened up one so wouldn't know about any fuses unless you're talking about efuses in which case unless you tried to put an older firmware on it shouldn't effect it, they burn with every normal update which therefore makes it hard to go back on older firmwares.

    I was hoping it was a simple fix for ya m8 but it sounds like you've exhausted every normal avenue, hopefully someone more knowledgeable can get in contact, failing that trawling the more hardened forums for the Switch might be the right step forward.

    Have you got a third party dock or a cheap usb cable?
    I have read they can brick the console.

    How old is is mate and can you not return it to the store and show them it won’t switch on?
    if you can’t switch it on they won’t be able to either and will just replace it if it’s new.

    you tried this mate?

    Did you take a full nand backup?

    Also have you tried to format the sd and redo all the install from scratch? Was it formatted fat32 or exfat?

    Nintendo always an easy hack in the end. Not paid attention since the Wii, but I’m sure a “child’s play”
    solution will out soon.
