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.

I did have trouble but that was related to the power-supply, it works fine with the nintendo one, the ali one doesn't work...

Have you tried other HDMI cables?
