    I have a question, my dock suddenly stopped working. I get a black screen when i put my switch in the dock. Now i still have a year warranty but my switch is hacked and banned. Will they still fix the issue under warranty ? Should i send in my switch and the dock or only the dock ? My switch still charges.

    Idk if N will want the Tablet as well. Any chance you can test your tablet on a friend’s dock to make sure it is not a malfunctioning USB C port?

    I tested with a friend's dock. It seems like it's the switch itself.

    I had some issues and this is what fixed it for me.

    1. Get Switch out of dock
    2. Remove all cables from dock
    3. Waite 2 minutes
    4. Put powercord in wall then in Dock
    5. Put TV on and then also connect HDMI to Dock
    6. Put Switch back in

    May seem silly but have you tried cleaning the connection?

    Don't think this is it, but did you try another HDMI cable? Since it is charging..
