    Hi guys so i bought a dead switch of a guy, checked the following and looking for guide lines to revive this puppy.
    1. Checked with amp meter, draws 0.82-0.84Amp
    2. Left it on the charger no sign of life
    3. Took it apart and put the board in a doner and it boot up but i get error of 2162 and console is in continous boot loop
    4. Original console battery was completly flat, im charging it using a donor board for now so i can continue conducting my repair as i dont have a spare battery

    5. i belive its a bad Charging ic but dont know where to look on the lite, also looking for your thoughts on it

    Swapped the m9 chip, console booted and charged, installed the 10.1 update, console froze upon restart, turned it off and on and was greated with this error

    dont mind the different shells, im just putting the board in different shells luying around

    is it a bad install or m9 went toast

    Nintendo charger or aftermarket? I recently had one that will blow the m92 if the Nintendo charger is plugged in while the device is off but if the console is powered up the Nintendo charger works perfect.

    Yea original charger not aftermarket
    Yea this one blew when the charger was plugged in and console was restarting

    so i have a spare m9, i dont want to take the risk i will change it, and avoid charging if console is off and will keep it to myself.
    But what was the fix for yours
    Cause this is weird
