Having watched a fair amount of TronicsFix during lockdown, I got the inspiration to try and see if I’ve learnt anything. I recently picked up a Switch and dock at a good price. The Switch is fine (just needed thumbsticks replaced) however the issue is the dock.
The dock happily charges the device and the screen even turns off as it was correctly docking to a TV, however there’s no video output. I’ve tried the Switch on a different dock and it’s fine.
As I said this is new to me, as such I am yet to pick up a multimeter (just yet) or any serious soldering equipment (just basic for wires). As such I’d like to just pick up a board to replace what’s in the dock. However I am unable to tell if its the mainboard, the USB-C connector, or the ribbon cable.
I was hoping someone may be able to give advice as to what may need replacing, so that I get the right part the first time. I realise I should do all this myself but I haven’t got everything quiet yet so I am hoping with the following information you guys might be able to help:
- Dock charges Switch
- LED light on Dock not on
- When HDMI is plugged in to TV/Monitor the sources refresh as if something is plugged in but then get no signal
