Switch freezes after Nintendo Logo and crashes EVEN WITH LINUX

That’s the GPU buck. If it’s failed, then you get nintendo logo, then black screen.

It’s surprising it got that far with 1v8 short!

Hi, thanks for your reply, SherriffBuck! I’ve been doing some reading in other posts and assume that with “GPU buck” you mean one of the ICs controlling the GPU, is that right? Could you point out which one are you referring to? I’ve attached two screenshots of the places that I think might be the ones, all pointed out in yellow “1”, “2”, and a circle. As I already pulled the IC on position “1”, that one is proably not the one you are talking about, but just double checking here.
