An error has occurred.
Please press the POWER button to restart the console…
Has anyone else seen this error? I’ve tried to Google it and haven’t found any results. I purchased this Switch locally and found that the issues really occur more frequently when docked. I’ll get through a round of MarioKart and then get the error.
In handheld mode, I can play longer, but eventually the error occurs again. It does not occur with Pokemon Eevee. It did occur with Super Smash Bros. I figured it might have needed some new thermal paste so I used a few tools that I purchased from @tronicsfix 's Amazon affiliate link to take apart and applied Arctic Silver MX-4 to the fan’s heatsink and to the shroud.
I’m still under the impression based on computer repairs that it probably has to do with a heating issue. The fan works. The unit did not feel overly hot during shut down. Does anyone else have a suggestion or may have heard of this error code? Thank you!!
