I bought a cheap Switch off eBay because I wanted something to practice on. When it showed up it was actually in very good shape. Turns out that once I got it to boot the only issue is that the video doesn’t show up on the Switch screen but works in the dock fine. Given I’m so inexperienced and this thing is in such good shape I wanted to drop a line here before I proceed.
Here is what I know so far:
- By itself the switch charges as expected(Based on Current and voltage).
- When turned on the screen goes:
a) Very bright but blank for half a second.
b) Dimmer blank screen for a few seconds. (I’m thinking this is when the Nintendo logo is up)
c) Screen then blinks once and goes back to the dim blank screen. (Assuming this is the Switch Logo)
d) Screen stays dim but moving the joycons or touching the screen makes the sounds of a functioning switch.
- When docked the Switch works just fine. I played on it for about ten minutes.
If someone can give me a hint on what I should do next it would be much appreciated.
