I bought a second-hand Switch that won’t power on. This is the first time I’m working on restoring a Switch. It’s one of the earlier models before Nintendo upgraded the battery. It won’t go on and doesn’t seem to charge. It won’t even display anything on the screen no matter what I do.
I checked the USB port and I don’t see any obvious signs of it being broken. I also used a 65W USB-C charger and one of those power measurement things and noticed the Switch is drawing 15V and no amps.
I opened it up and checked the battery with my multimeter. It shows a little over 4V, so the battery doesn’t seem to be drained.
Does anyone have any idea what I should be checking next.
Oh and one additional question. Is it possible the Switch could be bricked? This is one of the models susceptible to jailbreaking and I fear the original owner might have tried to jailbreak it and failed.
