First I’m french, sometimes I make grammar or language errors sorry in advance ;).
I have a second hand switch, it’s in a pretty good shape but it have one problem. It plays normally except when it’s docked.
What is happening exactly : the TV show the screen and I can play with my switch for about 5min/15min/30min then the tv turns black and there is no signal. When I take the switch back from the dock the game is still playing and is wating for me. The TV playing time seems to change depending of how intensive the game is on the console (the bigger the game is the less I can play).
I have tried on another dock and three other computer screens and the problem is the same.
1_My first guess is overheating, I think the fan is not working properly and get crazy fast (this is a supposition I don’t have other working switch to compare with) so the dock stop when it gets too hot maybe ?
2_Second guess is the usb port on the switch, I have tried to plug it on the computer and see if I have a problem there. I have a noise from windows telling me I have plugged my switch and a charging icon on the console, but after some seconds the switch unplug itself (unplug noise + icon disappear). It happens on both side and if I turn the switch on I have no problem.
3_Last guess would be the video chip, maybe there is a problem somewhere and a bit of hot air may do the trick by resolderring the pins. Since I can play with the switch normally, except for the dock thing, I think no major component is broken.
I’m gonna try to change the fan since I have a bsod donor. For the ohter guesses I don’t have proper equipment so I sadly will have to wait.
Do you think my ideas are good ? Do you have some workaround or some others thing for me to try out ?
Any idea is welcome
Thank’s for reading !
