    Hey everyone, I bought a broken switch that wont turn on. Got it for a reasonably cheap price with joycons etc.

    I swapped the batteries with my working battery and still can't get it to power on, original owner said they never hacked it and I checked for autorcm by trying to launch payload with sx dongle still didn't see anything.

    When I swapped the battery I plugged the original battery into a working console and it had 10% battery left.

    Any ideas.

    *update* when testing to put it into rcm with 100% battery it constantly connects and disconnects on the computer (device has malfunctioned). usb port itself looks good

    Maybe first check for fluid damage inside.
    This guy has some very interesting videos on repairing Switches :

    A lot of tips in the follow-up video :
