he's saying without dock / hdmi
there's another usb c port tat will power the monitor using powerbank

This video I saw before.
The brand I bought the seller did send me a video clip as well.
Just that the monitor is only showing Switch menu and Switch screen is blank, the wire cannot see fully so I dunno is there any dock used.

I'm wondering is there any issue with my Switch...

I think you still need to connect another USB type C cable to power via wall socket or powerbank. According to the lazada reviews and the YouTube video they all did that. Without a power source I don't think the switch is powerful enough to output.

When you use switch dock to output to monitor or TV the switch dock also needs the charging cable. So logically the same setup should apply even to this portable external monitor that's how I think. Unless the external monitor was built with some special circuitry and an inbuilt battery powerful enough to achieve video output from switch without an additional power source..

Based on the lazada Q&A seller says the external monitor doesn't have inbuilt battery. So means it needs a power source from somewhere. My conjecture is that the switch isn't able to supply enough power to the external monitor. Also from what I know the switch USB type C port isn't two way charging, so it doesn't even supply power out, only takes power in.

Hi Bro, ya Iím using this method.
Switch USB C to monitor, external power USB C to monitor another port.
The monitor able to charge Switch but showing no signal den peer saving mode.
However the same monitor port can be use for PC, so I guessing my switch got issue if really can works.

Then I think maybe your switch likely got issue liao. If possible borrow another switch to confirm.

I also think that way as reviews and one bro here confirm can works.

I tried to search online only able to find old dated post saying switch does not support alt DP and unable to use a single USB C for video output..

So far no related news saying different batch got changes in hardware also except the going to launch Gen 2..

Check the usb c connection between the switch and monitor. Itís quite sensitive.

Iím using another brand Eyoyo 13.3 inch touch screen without internal battery version. Can use with Xiaomi PowerBank 20000mah black version to power the switch without dock. The touchscreen work also.

I use the USB C cable in the eyoyo box to connect to switch. I found that some USB cable give me black screen except the one in the box.

By the way, I heard from my Friend his third party dock cant work after the latest firmware update. Maybe your problem is from the update
