The problem I am encountering is as follows: I’ve bought a defect Nintendo Switch. I’ve never repaired something like that but I do have a good knowladge about electronics. After watching Steve’s Video I thought this one might be an easy fix: The console won’t turn on.
First thing I checked was the charge port: looked good. I then plugged a USB-cable in and noticed that it will charge only in one orientation. Also it charges only at 0.4 amps. However, the screen didn’t turn on and I cannot power it up (as expected). What is interesting, is that my multimeter reads 5V on the testpad on the motherboard either direction
Then I opened up the console and measured the voltage of the Battery: It was pretty much drained (2.3V). I let it plugged in for a long time, my charger reported to have pushed ~10.000mAhs into the Switch… However, the battery was only charged up to 3.8V and wont charge any higher using the switch as a charge Controller. The Screen still won’t turn on during charging, nor will it power up.
My Question is: Might this be fixable and if yes, which parts might be faulty?
Thanks in advance and kind greetings,
