I am newbie to repair and I bought a faulty Switch off Ebay to see if I can repair and learn something along the way. I watched tons of various fix videos on Youtube but I am very much a beginner so please bare with me.
The problem : No power/no screen at all. Tried the official charger and few other ones and nothing.
The seller said it was faulty USBC port, but I saw no damaged pins and it looked fine. But the Nintendo Charge was bent and this probably what caused the issue. But the charger does actually work.
I checked it on a AMP meter and it gives 0.02. Taking it apart no obvious signs of corrosion or damage or even burnt parts. No water damage either. Using a multimeter I can see the motherboard gets 4.92v ish max at certain points.
I checked for continuity and found a few shorted fuses(?) - see pic I’ve circled them.
In short P13USB is fine no shorts detected around it.
M92T36 has 2 shorts
And another other parts also have fuses blown = see pic - not sure what they are called. Everything else seems fine short wise.
Interestly if I touch the 2nd pin on M92T36 with a prob I notice amp goes up to 0.08 but nothing happens.
Guess my next steps would be to be remove the IC chips M92/P13 and see if shorts disappears and take it from there?
btw i cant seem to post pics? is this because i am new?
