Hi to everyone!
I bought a second hand swtich and when i put the switch in the dock the console is dificult to get into the dock.
When i enter the switch in the dock the final part is more harder than normal.
I disassembled the dock and cleaned it enterely.
the part of the connector on the base, goes down correctly.


Anyone know what is the problem?

Thanks in advance!

Do you have a glass screen protector on the console? I found that it was a bit stiff to get the console into the dock with a glass screen protector on. Otherwise, as the above user mentioned, a video highlighting the issue would be helpful.

same thing on my unit. I have a thick screen protector.
Using a very slim case (UGreen one) it gets even worse lol.

does anyone know of there is any damage done to the usb c port by this?

Look from the side of the switch and see if there is a bend? Early switch days people reported that there switch had bend.

There are third party docks that are more open so there nothing for it to be caught on which is an option

EDIT. Check if the docks bent too

If the problem is caused by a thick screen protector the USB c port will be fine. If the problem is caused by the console being bent then the extra friction on the usb C port will probably reduce its lifecycle.

I almost never put NS in to the dock, I have been using the type-c extension cable, use it to connect NS to the dock is as easy as charging

i would guess its one of the three things mentioned by others. bent dock, bent switch or too thick accessories, I have only a thin "airglass" screen protector and it drops in smooth.
