    Hi, so i have been given a nintendo switch that doesn't charge, i plug it into the dock and the green light flashes fast.
    If you remove the battery it will charge, just not in the switch, I have read many threads about this issue..
    I was hoping for a faulty usb c port but I have managed to connect my switch to a laptop and connected to tegraRcmGui so would be able to nand backup so this proves the post functions!
    I came across this forum post https://gbatemp.net/threads/backup-...-your-biskeys-tseckeys-keys-txt-guide.513386/ i wanted to know if i try and rebuild the system and start from scratch is this likely to sort the issue or am i wasting my time because it is a hardWare fault?
    Any tips would be great, thanks.

    Take it apart and trace the battery charge circuitry.
