    So I replaced my backplate and it ended up making my usb c port act strange. My PC could detect it as a valid device 1/40 insertions. I was able to send a payload and boot. I inserted it into my dock. The dock kept blinking and then it stopped. Now my PC does not detect the Switch in anyway. The dock is fine, it has no problems with my other Switches.

    What parts would I get if I were to fix this on my own?

    Thanks

    I don't see how replacing the backplate could have damaged the USB-C port. It's literally the first thing that comes off when disassembling the console, before you even have access to the port. Have you used 3rd party chargers or docks?

    No. I think it might have been caused by static damage since I've replaced 2 backplates before. I was surprised when it happened.

    But you can't even access the PCB without removing the metal shielding, which should prevent static damage. IMO it's probably a coincidence.

    I know it's rotten luck. Oh well, sucks that new unpatched units are super expensive here. Oh well, hopefully the SXOS chip brings prices down.
