Glad I found this forum, looks like you guys really know your stuff.
I have recently replaced a USB C connector on a clients Switch. I’m not too familiar with the switch. I don’t have the genuine charger so am using a Samsung phone charger to test it. When plugged in the screen lights up, top left corner the charging icon appears (battery shows a small amount of charge).
If powered on I get the Nintendo splash screen then turns off again. Even leaving the Switch charging for a few hours, the battery indicator doesn’t seem to fill.
I’m quite confident in my repair. Pre heated the board, lifted the old connector (without lifting any pads) and I believe have successfully reflowed a new connector.
Two areas for concern though:
- My PCB clamp put quite a bit of pressure on the board, it did bend slightly when pulling at the connector.
- The large 2R2 resistor did lift slightly (looks like it came away from the small plates either side).
Have not done any further testing but just wanted some advice please. Especially with regards to Non charging, using a phone charger etc.
Any advice appreciated.
