    I've noticed that whenever I insert my right Joy-Con into the Switch, it does get detected, but somehow doesn't play the animation, nor the snap sound.

    But when inserting and removing a Jig, it plays the animation and the sound when re-inserting the right Joy-Con again, but only for once...

    Anyone knows how to solve this?
    Oh, and rebooting/turning it off and back on doesn't work, already tried of course :P

    Switch is on FW: 2.1.0

    In the Controller Configuration Menu, is your joycon attached @your Switch? (The little Picture on the left side)

    Yes it is. It's shown as normally attached to the Switch itself like on the icon I showed in the video.

    What happens if you, well, Shake the attached joycon a little up/down, back and forward?

    Ive had the same Problem With my Right Joycon BUT when i Shaked the joycon a little Bit, the joycon disconnected.

    On the Circuit Board, there are 2 Connectors for the Joycon Rail.
    The Lower One was slightly disconnected ans caused this error.

    So Maybe something is wrong With your joycon or your Switch Rail.

    Did you use a jig?
    Is there something stuck in Your Switch Rail?


    Edit: just Read that you used a jig.
    If possible, try another Joycon LG dissamble both of your Joycons and switch the rails

    No, no disconnect problems at all.
    Have you seen the end of the video that I uploaded?
    I don't think that it has to do with the rails though

    I'm guessing it's just a firmware issue. Hopefully, it's fixed in the higher firmware.
    Maybe you can try other joy-cons see if it works. It's hard to isolate the problem when no one has experienced or reported the same thing so far.
    So, I'm just guessing it's firmware related.

    So, finally saw it.

    And well, lol.
    When you put your Jig in, ans after that your Joycon, it Works? Only once, but it fu*King Works?

    Only Spekulation, but how is your Jig Build?
    Only Pin1/10 or are all Pins on your jig?

    I hope so too, I'll try out soon with a different Joy-Con of my brother when I visit him.

    Yeah, all pins are still there, but it doesn't matter since the pins are not connected to anywhere.
    I've cut out the flex cable and soldered the first pin to the last one (Pin1/10)

    See this picture as a reference, this is exactly what I've done:

    Mhhh okay.
    Well, at this point we can only guess what the Problem is.

    - Maybe Software
    - Maybe Joycon
    - Maybe your Jig Spoofes tempoary a Pin, and when you Attach your Joycon, you get the Animation once

    When i Had more infos about the Switch rail, we could gather better results...sorry

    you need to put a 10k resistor across there

    Do you even know why you need to put a 10k resistor?.....

    Because its enough to enter RCM. but wont cause the Joycon to not be detected by the switch. If you were doing in on the joycon of course, in your case its probably fine, i would do it for safety.

    Have you even watched the video? ¬_¬"
    My Joy Con gets detected, just no animation and sound when (de-)attached.

    Also, the resistor thing is only needed if you short a different pin and is also only needed on higher firmwares.
