    Guys, i am facing a problem with the Nintendo Switch of my friend.
    We are trying to charge it directly on the wall with a USB-C cord. The Switch doesn't charge at all. It stays on this screen:

    I left ir charging for about one hour and nothing.

    Tried to hold Power Button for 30 seconds then connecting it. No life too.

    Is it dead?

    No, i just got it. I think my friend only uses the portable mode.


    Update: it just turned on with no battery. Tried to run Mario Oddyssey but it turned off. Now its not charging.

    Ok, let it charging for one hour and a half. Now it's stuck on Nintendo Switch logo. An error flashed on the screen but i couldn't read it.

    Try holding all buttons on switch when powering on to enter maintanence and do a restore.

    Or hold power for 20 secs and then try booting it
    What was done with the console before the problems ,the more details we have the better we can help

    Tried to enter maintenance mode but after the switch logo the screen turns black and nothing happens.

    I really think it's semi-bricked.

    Store bought. It never connected internet either. It was a child Switch with only physical games.

    If it is not modded... It isn't in warranty?

    The console is not modded. There are more options before using homebrew payloads.
