Hi everyone!

Recenlty I've attempted my very first joy con shell swap. Although the left joy con works like a charm, the right one doesn't seem to get recognized anymore in handheld mode. The battery seems to be charging hence the joy con stays on full battery.

I've ordered a replacement rail because I might have damaged the lower ribbon cable of the rail by opening the shell.

Are there any mores things I can attempt on fixing this? All the buttons work fine, the LED-indicators as well + the joy con is able to connect wirelessly to the switch.

Thanks!

Most likely damaged ribbon, see what the new rail does, the connector on the board looks OK. I've got at least 2 non-working sets of SL and SR ribbons that have no visible damage to them
