    Hello, 13.07 I received my SX Core.
    That same day I tried to mount it.
    Failed to. But the console started in OFW. There was a solid red light, I dismantled it, tried to improve the contacts. But still the same. I dismantled the chip and put the console back together. Work.
    About 4-5 hours later I wanted to turn on the console, it did not turn on.
    I tried to charge it, it was charging all night. Still nothing.
    I tried to check if everything is in place in the center of the console. Everything was ok. Please, help me. Thank you

    That looks super unclean. You really need to clean up everything before soldering for a good job.
    Plus that it seems you used way to much solder on the points, most likely causing a short.

    Red usually means there is basicly no contact. By the looks of it, one cant even tell whats paste, whats solder and whats random gunk.

    It needs to be properly cleaned before soldering and as others have said, there is probably too much solder in general. The tiniest tini tiny drop of solder is enough for such work.

    I would honest de-solder it. Clean it up, then try again. NO big blobs. Tiny little droplets.

    desoldering it runs the risk of pulling off components. I'd send it to someone who has some experience.

    After desoldering, the Switch still does not work

    Is there anyone in Europe (closer to Germany, Poland) who could mount it?

    Clean/desolder without breaking anything

    Try again with the advice from this thread or send it to someone to do

    I have tried to solder before and yeah its a lot harder than it looks.

    Just be careful. I'd hate for you to damage your Switch irreparably

    It doesn't look bad.
    Did you put the NAND in place when you turned it on ?

    Maybe its a damage cap, I don't see anything on the picture to be honest.
    I though I could help because I had similar problem, first because I was not putting the NAND chip in place and then because I bridged one cap. Your case seems different, maybe you can grab a multimeter and check each one of the caps.
