    Hardware Problem With SD Card Reader Seat From Nintendo Switch Mother Board

    Good eye. I actually noticed that too but didn't think much of it. The original reader does not look like that.

    Hardware Problem With SD Card Reader Seat From Nintendo Switch Mother Board

    I have a launch day switch which had broken pins on the motherboard socket connecting to the sd card reader. After reading this forum (THANK YOU), I found someone to micro solder a new sd card reader to the board itself based on the diagrams here. The reader now works and will again boot into SX...
