Hello there, I’ve got a puzzle for all of you interested.
I recently bought a faulty switch to spend some time thinkering with it.
This switch presents a few problems:
- The cartridge reader reads and shows the game on the display. But after launching the game it will always show the message “The Software Was Closed Because An Error Occurred”
- Going to the e-shop and trying to login with an account resoults in a 2168-0002 error
- Connecting to a wifi will freeze the switch after a couple of minutes
I’ve tested for shorts and haven’t been able to find any.
There seem to be 2 missing traces on the display connector (I don’t think this would cause these kinds of problems).
I’m thinking that the problems is either a dodgy ram (I may try putting some pressure on the ram chips and see if I’m able to load a game from the cartridge) or a faulty power delivery chip that is not giving enoght voltage/amperage to either cpu or wifi chip.
What do you think?
