What causes the Nintendo Switch LCD Fault?
The most common problem that we see is accidental damage. A drop or pressure applied to the Nintendo Switch can cause the internal LCD to crack. Sometimes an impact that doesn't damage the outside of the Nintendo Switch can still cause the LCD to display strange colours or just a blank picture.
Sometimes people who have tried a home repair and not used anti-static precautions can cause damage to the back light coil on the motherboard. This would require a more specialised repair and would cost more. We would let you know if this was needed.
How do we repair the Nintendo Switch LCD?
The first thing we do before any repair is test the Nintendo Switch to confirm the fault. We will first test the LCD cable to make sure that is seated correctly as sometimes it can become loose and cause the LCD to behave strangely. We then proceed to swap the LCD. We will always use like for like quality LCD's so the picture resolution is still the same.
We then reassemble the Nintendo Switch and test all functions before sending it to out test bench where all devices are tested prior to dispatch.
