    Hi All, first post on GBA temp so not sure if this question has been asked already in the community but can definitely use some help and advice. I have a Homebrew Nintendo that I got modded in February and was working perfectly fine up until a few weeks ago when my switch suddenly stopped working. It's been on airplane mode 100% of the time and one day while booting it up while it was docked, my Nintendo Switch suddenly wouldn't turn on. The screen is completely black and doesn't power on. Does anyone know what the cause of this is? How do I fix this? I had my switch modded by someone else and they've become unresponsive with helping me :( Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Check to see if your switch is stuck in rcm mode. The person who modded the switch probably enabled auto-rcm. Try injecting a payload and see if that works.

    How do I do that? Sorry, I'm a complete noob to the hacking community and I'm not sure what any of that means -____- any way you can walk me through the steps?

    it could be in auto rcn mode like everyone is saying. I think you should do some research yourself when it comes to modding too. It would make it easy for you. Also try holding power button for 30 seconds then turning it back on. If you have a dongle try booting it up with a dongle

    1. Get a USB-C cable
    2. Get TegraRCMSmash
    3. Start TegraRCMSmash
    4. Plug Switch into PC
    5. Inject something like Hekate
    6. Disable AutoRCM

    I am nowhere near as expert as others in this group but I had a scare yesterday of my Switch not starting at all. It turned out that I had to hold the power button for about 10 seconds, and then it started again. I'd follow others' advice first but if nothing else works, maybe you can try that. In any case the link posted just above is the guide that I followed and it has a pretty straightforward description of how to get to RCM:

    Best of luck.
