Hi there! I am hoping some of you geniuses could help me diagnose my girlfriend’s switch lite.
It turns on, charges, and plays games with no trouble whatsoever, except it drains 1% every 2-5 seconds. I have tried 2 replacement batteries, both showing the same issue.
I have checked pretty much every cap on the board at this point:
The cap in Red is short to GND on both sides,
The cap in Green is short across, 250Ohms to GND on both sides
The caps in Blue are short across, 17.8Ohms to GND on both sides
The caps in Yellow are short across, 75Ohms to GND
The caps in Orange are short across, 520Ohms to GND
The cap in pink is short across, 6kOhm to GND
I am not sure how to proceed, other than the one cap being short to GND is clearly a big issue. The fact that this switch still works perfectly other than the fast battery drain is throwing me for a loop, so I’m hoping one of you can tell me what that cap is for and how to proceed in fixing this thing. Any suggestions?
