    Hello guys. Yeah Im the amateur

    like in my thread before
    I said my swicth is broken and my goal is it now to fix my switch, even if I will break it more. I never did something like that before.
    I mean like soldering on a console or other electricboard-components. Or checking with the multy-meter on board. I solder a lot of leds or other small and easy electric-parts for
    arduino projects but never soldered on a PCB board that are not from me. Just replaced some buttons or screen on other consoles (PSP,DS,3DS ect....) So Im not nervous to open things up. Its a part of my hobby. I would study electrical engineering but I dont like the math behind it so is just a hobby

    but comming to my real question.
    Where do I need to begin to check my switch problem

    Gbatemp is my first forum that I use so Im really an amateur
    (sorry for my english)

    yeah nobody can really help if we don't know the problem, is it a broken screen, faulty charging port, no TV output etc etc

    ok well just had a look at your other thread, and yeah so no power can be caused by a few things, there is a few IC's that can cause the switch to fail, if you had access to another switch you can try charging the battery in another switch then seeing if this switch will boot with a charged battery, that would indicate its the charging chip dead, there is a thread with all the common faults and how to diagnose them I will see if I can find it for you now

    high everyone,
    need some advise from the pros.
    after researching and going through a lot of posts and tutorials on how to install and flash the trinket m0 chip, I finally got brave and dove head first in to my switch guts.
    Every thing went well (joycon, gnd, D-, D+, usb disconnect). But that damn v3.3 cap got me so nervous I started sweating. Tried it 3 time and each time it get bridged with the adjacent cap. So I cleaned it off and went for another point recommended in a post I previously saw (2 tiny caps or resistors am not sure) but I managed to royally f**k both of them. Yep....I lifted both of them.
    Good news everything is working well. My question is:
    What is the significance of those being missing?
    Can I use my switch like this or I have to replace them?
    And if so, what are those so I can order them?
    Thanks guys

    Look at this guy youtube channel and this video in particular:


    My Mate Vince has an extremely smart and practical approach to diagnose what’s wrong with the device.

    Hope this is gonna help you..
