My friend recently sent me their Switch Lite for me to work on. It turned off one day last year and hasn’t turned on since. There was an error code that flashed before it turned off, but it turned off before they could even write it down. They have no pirated content on it. And it’s a lite, so it can’t exactly be modded in the same way a dockable switch can.
I originally thought it may just need a hard reboot, or it may be the screen, corrosion, or even something as simple as the battery. It’s none of those. there’s no damage, no corrosion, so I got curios and tested the board in my own system. It didn’t even try to power on. Which leads me to think there’s some hardware issue that may not be able to be fixed.
I know there are things like Qianli to save data from broken-beyond-repair phones. Is there something similar that I can use for a switch? Or could you help me figure out which part holds the system data so I can solder it onto a new system for them?
Thank you in advanced.
TLDR: Error Code popped up, they noticed before they could write it down, won’t turn back on. Is there a way to save the data?
