Hi all, this site looks like an amazing resource, and before coming across it I thought there was zero hope of repairing a Switch which I recently obtained. This switch has had a bad LCD connector installed which I have removed and intend to replace. I have done some testing while waiting for a replacement connector as I figured it should work on the dock - however it does not!
when in handheld mode I can hear the menu and the backlight is working.
Upon inspection on the reverse side of the lcd connector has had too much heat and a bunch of the capacitors are missing. there are 3 diodes which I have straightened but no sign of the caps. I have inspected the whole board and this seems to be the only problematic looking area. Is this area part of the display output? I have been looking for a board view and schematics which I don’t think exist to us.
Here is the area in question, I have labelled the missing caps A to J. If anyone is able to assist by letting me know what these capacitors are I would be forever grateful.
I will include the picture attachments below as I’m not currently allowed to post images, probably because I am new
Thank you very much!
