Hi all,
Yesterday I tried to repair the Joy-Con sticks as they were drifting. It went all right, a bit messy but I got there in the end, with the sticks fixed. I was testing it today, and noticed that the Switch isn’t making the normal animation when inserting the fixed Joy-Con (the right one), yet it still charges. I have linked a picture for reference. I think it’s due to a ribbon cable being detached.
All help is appreciated.

Re-seat your cables (pretty much take everything apart and put it back together again), double check your ribbon cables.
Also not sure if that's a charging, and not just charged. I'm pretty sure it's just your Joycon rail, so check the two connectors on the side that connect to it to the joycon board.

This is what the connectors looks like:
