What causes the Nintendo Switch Charging Port fault?
The main reason we see Nintendo Switch with charging port failures coming in are caused by accidental damage. If the USB C cable isn't inserted perfectly straight, it can damage the port.
Sometimes it can damage the connector on the dock too.
How do we repair the Nintendo Switch Charging Port?
The first thing we do before any repair is test the console to confirm the fault. We clean out any dust as we go. We then proceed to open the Nintendo Switch to gain access to the internals.
We inspect the internal parts to confirm the fault lies with the USB C charging port. The ports are soldered to the logic board of the Nintendo Switch so we carefully de-solder the old port, and replace it with a new one. We will test the Nintendo Switch a number of times on our testing bench prior to releasing it for dispatch.
