    I've never heard of that before. that doesn't look normal. it almost sounds like a shielding issue though, but that's coming from someone who has never opened a switch and looked about. however, if something isn't shielded properly, I think it can cause tint issues.

    well, those consoles usually have shielding in them to avoid interference. I don't know if that's what's happening here. I would contact the person you got it from. no way I'd accept that, because there could be other things wrong with it.

    I kind of like it not to lie. But I would probably bring it back and swap it.

    EDIT: Oh it's modded. Well enjoy a bit of a yellowish screen!

    Mariko switches (Switches that come in red box) and switch lites have a revised screen that has warmer colors. Its normal and the only way to change it (theoretically) is to buy a screen from earlier switch models and swap it out, but I dont know if that would work.

    aww man I wish my switch came with a screen like that, it's like a built-in blue light filter

    but jokes aside it's part of quality control, it's the same reason why DS screens would have 2 different color temperatures when you buy them, it just boils down to the color temperature not being calculated very precisely by the factory that makes the displays, and things like this are still within the "shippable product" category. If this was a problem with signal interference there would be wayyy more problems with the display than just a yellow tint

    unknown. isn't the animal crossing switch a Mariko system? that's what I have. I only use black, but when I got the system, I don't remember it having a yellowing effect. mine is legit though, so I guess it's possible the modchip has messed something up.

    I'm currently downloading my games to my older switch, but the animal crossing one is on my bed. here's what white looks like:

    I know just enough to verify and compress/convert games, but not much else. I don't know if that's the cause, but I'd definitely consult the person you bought the system from and/or modchip.

    I just turned off the blue light filter on my computer, and there definitely are not any problems with your screen caused by the modchip. That's just how the screen looked when it came out of the factory, the yellowness is indiscernible unless you were to compare it with a white sheet of paper.

    That is normal on newer switches, they use a different display. There is a homebrew called Fizeau to adjust display color temperature. I do not know if it is compatible with your switch though.
