Hey guys,

i am wondering what specifications the Fuse right above the USB-C Port has?

I found a document linked on ebay containing a mouser link which sadly is not working anymore. Here the repairdocument containing the link:
gbatemp.net/attachments/nintendo-checks-pdf.187463/
I could not find the thread, where the doucment was posted. It was directly linked on google.

I attached an image with the location of the fuse.


Yes I can get some donorboards, but buying the fuses directly is a little bit more cost effective :)


Edit: I know the formfactor is 0402

I use fast acting fuse , 0402,3A all good so far.

The pdf document recomended 3.5A

"043803.5WRA Littelfuse Surface Mount Fuses 3.5A 32V FAST ACTING FUSE" and size was wrong but stil usable by removing some paint.

The pdf is a colection form here https://gbatemp.net/threads/compone...stly-the-motherboard-and-main-console.525026/
and other places , with no credit to original posters @WadsRUs @mattytrog @consolex @Pintglass @my and many more.

@Modificatorul I damaged the same chip and get a BSOD. You were able to replace the spec'd 0603 3.5A SMD with a 0402 3.0A SMD without issues?

Yes, i tested both all good, but 0402 is the corect size ,fast acting fuse, 3A or 3.5A will fit with no modification to the mb pads. If the fuse is foulty will not pass 5v/15v to mb m92 ic>bq ic> battery from usb port and battery will not charghe, this will not fix Bsod.

I replaced with 0603 with a bit of mod. Still BSOD. Switch charges okay. Not sure how else to troubleshoot the BSOD.
