    this is happening for me too. Were you charging it in sleep mode or shut down?

    Your Switch is faulty, T-Hug had the same issue. You should get it repaired.

    If you're still under warranty (which you probably are), sure.

    I mean if your warrenty is expired, then is not gonna be free, usually how it works. Some will even be scumbag and refuse service even if you willing to pay and tell you to buy a new one.... NVIDIA :glare:

    But the Switch has only been out for a little over 4 months :unsure:
    How bad is manufacturer warranty over there if it lasts shorter than that?
    I thought it was standard for big electronics manufacturers to have a 1 year warranty at least.
    Edit: Yes, just checked, Switch comes with a 1 year warranty.

    In usa, most stores have a one month warranty and can be extended with a payment. But you did say "Manufacture warranty" Which I assume doesn't apply to store warranty. :unsure:

    my dad works for nintendo.
    that is "extra warranty" provided by the store, usually a stupid scam\bullshit
    if you still have the receipt from when you purchased the switch, that's the warranty

    in europe every electronic product you buy has a 2 year warranty, you must have the proof of purchase.
    i do believe in USA it's 1 year or something similair, not sure if different states got different rules but either way, if you still ahve the receipt, very likely you have a manufacter warranty

    no it isnt lol that is becuase i charged it with the console shutdown, if you charge it in sleep mode everything is good, its a software issue since i havent updated since 2.0 i think.
