    hi friends, i need yours help, because my Switch wont to turn on : When I turned it on it was shortly displaying the “Nintendo” screen and then the screen is stuck indefinately on the Nintendo Switch logo , does not even enter into recovery mod.
    I dismantled the entire console to the motherboard, and looked for shorts : I checked the IC Chip BQ24193, the M92T36 chip, and others on the front of the motherboard without finding anythings.
    instead looking for shorts in the back of motherboard and I found some shorts, but
    I don’t understand what caused tehse shorts.
    would anyone be kind enough to help me with my problem?
    ps. I photographed and marked the short circuits that I identified

    What resistance to ground were your getting on all the caps you highlighted, or were you just testing in beep mode.

    I wouldn't use that method for finding shorts as different multimeters will beep at different resistances

    Just use resistance to ground. Its the same method but you need to look at what readings your getting from the meter and not just relying on whether or not your meter beeps. For example some of the caps you have highlighted are low resistance to ground but there not a full short to ground.

    Sorry my ignorance about it, but I've never done anything like that and is also the first time I use a multimeter and I'm trying to understand well how it works.
    How can I do that you've just said? Which settings I should put on the multimeter?

    [QUOTE = "Gaggiame, post: 8866509, membro: 511046"] Scusate la mia ignoranza a riguardo, ma non ho mai fatto nulla del genere ed è anche la prima volta che l'utilizzo di un multimetro e sto cercando di capire bene come lavori.
    Come posso fare quello che hai appena detto? Quali impostazioni dovrei mettere sul multimetro? [/ CITAZIONE]

    Set your meter to ohm's mode which is the setting before the beep test then put one probe on ground, use the usb port for that then probe various points as you have been doing with the other probe, if you get high resistance to ground its not shorted if its low, like less that an ohm your have a short or your probing a ground connection.

    In the first post you say so: "I checked the IC Chip BQ24193, the M92T36 chip, and others on the front of the motherboard without finding anythings.
    instead looking for shorts on the back of motherboard and I found some shorts, but
    I don't understand what caused tehse shorts. "
    Now you say "I'm sorry about my ignorance, but I've never done anything like that and it's also the first time I use a multimeter and I'm trying to understand well how it works.
    How can I do that you've just said? Which settings should I put on the multimeter? "
    No offense but something doesn't fit into your story.:glare:
