    Had a error code playing Donkey Kong Country. Thought no big deal. Got them before even without the SXC homebrew.

    Powered off. Won't power on now. Tried everything. No SD card, SD card, dongle, no dongle. AC adapter no ac adapter. Power with + & - It's 100% charged i was on a nintendo docking station playing.

    Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated!

    This may sound dumb (but it worked for me before under difference circumstances but the same black screen). Remove both joycons, hold power for 12 seconds, snap the joycons back in and try to turn it on.

    Yep. I was playing with the joycons undocked at the time. when it crashed i just pulled the switch out, power button didn't work, held for 12 seconds, powered off at that point. hasn't turned on back since

    try to boot into maintenance mode, power off completely then hold vol up and down at the same time then press power

    Can you send a payload a different way? Your dongle could be flat

    Just sits at the black screen like the battery is dead. I mean it could be a HW failure but honestly, i have played this switch maybe 5 hours in it's life time. it was 100% charged too. i guess i'll throw it on a charger again or something but the thing acts completely dead. I get no power up options

    Which would mean it’s out of warranty if it’s a day one system.
