    I'll try and give as many details about this problem that I can, please forgive.

    I have a Nintendo Switch that doesn't charge. When docking, the green light will quickly flash and then nothing. The only way I was able to get it on was by grabbing a battery from a working Switch and throwing it in there.

    When it is powered on by a fully charged battery, the Switch does, however, cast to the dock when it is on and placed in a dock. It will display that it is charging, but no charge is held. I know the battery itself isn't the problem, as the battery will charge when thrown in a properly working Switch. I have tried charging it through different means (multiple docks, multiple USB-C chargers), with the same results.

    Because of the sorta kinda working nature of the USB-C port, I feel as thought it can't be as simple as soldering on a replacement USB-C port. I was told it could be the
    BQ24193 or M92T36 chip, but I would like a second opinion or two before I start touching anything more. Thanks in advance.

    So fastest first step would be to take multimeter and test capacitors on the short around BQ24193 or M92T36.
