    Before swapping out joy con housing the controller connected fine. After I finished I reconnected the controller in handheld mode and it was working however the switch didn't register it as connected to the console itself. After a reset I lost functionality all together. The controller will not connect to my other switch either. It snapps when I slide it in the switch but it has a white animation instead of the green. When i press sync it lights up but is not detected.

    Take the joy-con back apart and make sure that everything is connected

    Yes, make 100% sure that all the ribbon cable connectors are latched down.

    Because the ribbon cables are so small they may look like they're all the way in even though they're not.

    I am thinking the ribbon cable on the rail is damaged. I see some discoloration so maybe it is loosing connection

    Is there anyway to test them or determine which one is causing the problem?
