My switch is spoilt

On national day morning i played octopath for awhile. After that i turned if off and went out with family. Ard 8pm when i reach home, i found my switch extremely hot. It cannot be turned on.


Then ard 1am i tried to turn on, saw the Nintendo logo for 1 second. Immediately it showed the battery weak symbol:



I charged for 2-3 hours. Also no use. Now totally cannot charge and whenever i turn on it will show the battery weak symbol
Use the original charger and wire.

Try if it works.

Sounds like autoRCM problem. Is your firmware modded?

I am using game pad s pro. So far so good except once the controller cannot be used after firmware upgrade. Just got to unpaid and pair it back.

Did you use the original power adaptor to charge?
doesn't look like original charger
This one is Aukey cable. The original charger was plugged into the Dock. So I used this cable to charge n test.

Btw at home most of the times I will use original charger, sometimes may use the aukey cable. At work I use Anker cable + Anker charger.

Battery totally flat, just leave it charging until it comes alive again. It will come back one longest i took was about 5 hours.
Hi I used the Original power adapter and left it to charge for more then 5 hours. Still the same


Force shut down then charge it up. Charging in this state will bring you to nowhere.....
Did it. Couldn't charge also.


Use the original charger and wire.

Try if it works.
I used the original charger. Still the same problem. I learnt my lesson. Think the battery spoilt when I used other cables to charge my switch

Aukey type A to type C? Does it have a 56kohm resistor? If it's under warranty by maxsoft, bring it back to them.

Anyway, how was the battery level before you turned it off? Assuming you still have >20% the battery shouldn't deplete so fast. Otherwise you have a faulty battery or you are in autorcm which doesn't really turn off the set and drains battery even when it's "off"

Ya mine is a usb A to usb C cable. I am not sure if it has a56kohm resistor.

I bought my set on march 2017 when it was newly released. So warranty over

My batt level was ard 70% when turn it off
