Hello,
i hope there is someone out there who can help me fixing my problem:
History of my switch: It worked proper until the day the switch was not charging any more. I tested the normal Switch charger with an 5V and 15V output. Nothing happend. I plugged it and nothing happend. So i tested a mobile phone charger with an 5V output only and that worked. With the 5V charger it charged to 100%. Great. I did that two or three times and someday i saw the switch battery is low so i plugged it in and after 10 minutes i touched the charger and it was hot. The USB port at the console was hot, too. I pluged it off immediately but the usb plug was melted with the usb c socket at the console. So, the first thing is to change the usb c port, which is already done. I found a picture in the internet where the values, measured at the usb c port, if soldered are written. I have other values. So i moved forward to the typical "searching for shorts" method, and i found nothing shorted, but there is one capacitor in the area of the M92T36 that is not connected to GND. I measure on one side of the capacitor a value (in diode mode) of 0,684 and on the other side a value of 0,615. I attached the picture, showing the position of the capacitor (the measuring tip is marking it). Now the question is: are these values normal? Shouldn´t be this capacitor connected to GND?
I hope someone can help me fixing this.
Thanks in advance. Best regards.
