I recently bought a defect Nintendo Switch with a no power issue…
After looking at several Youtube videos and much time spent on measuring and searching for shorts with my thermal camera for shorts.
All readings look OK, but I have no good board to compare with and this is the first Nintendo Switch that I’m repairing, so I’m not 100% sure but I will post some pictures with measurements (Maybe you guys got working boards and can compare).
I’m also guessing that the Switch has been dead for a while because, the battery was almost totally dead (2.7V), so charged it up to 3.8V without any problem, took about two hours but the display is still black and it’s stuck at 0.465A on the USB meter.
And the only thing left is these two chips that get hot and one damage small component (think its still work), but please take a look at the pictures to make your own opinion.
Does anyone know if they could be bought some were? about the Chips that get “hot”, should I remove it and try if it’s booting? The chip is labeled “EN50” on the top.
and the other larger chip that gets hot is, MAX77620AEWJ. Its located in the middle of the backside of the motherboard
Maybe someone else has seen this before and know what I’m supposed to do next? Or maybe have a good board to compare the multimeter readings on the pictures.
Thanks in Advance!
