My switch no longer connects to a TV.
It's not the dock. I've tried multiple docks and switches. I tried 4 switches with two docks. Each Switch works with each dock, except the one Switch.
I've updated the firmware, atmosphere and hekate... It doesn't seem to be a software issue.
The Switch still charges and connects data wise, just won't send a TV signal.
Anything I can do?

It could be your USB-C connector.
Sometimes the pins don't make proper contact anymore especially if you often use the dock.
A decent repairshop can fix your connector by reflowing it.

I have two switches which work in handheld but not docked, I've read a lot about changing chips, m92, p13usb and checking filters around these.
I've yet to get a fix, however, I did come across the below, the dock in the video does work on one of my faulty switches but not the other so maybe something to try? Cheap from amazon.

Have you tried other HDMI cables?
