Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch won't turn on

I don't know what happened, but all of the sudden the switch won't turn on. I've tried everything but no luck. Just have to wait till the battery is completely gone so it appears the nintendo logo on the screen and recharge ir again, then it turns on, but the switch is useless.

Has anyone has had this awful experiences and had not a a bad ending?

PD: I'm from Ecuador so shipping to the USA (i bought it from amazon) wouldn't be cheap. I'm freaking out!!! Just when this week I get XC2

This happened to me actually, freaked the heck out of me too, try plugging it in an outlet, does it show the battery icon charging? If not, try holding down the power button until it shows something on the screen, sorry I don't really know how I did it, but after that, I never let my battery go below 5% or empty.

Just try leaving it plugged to the outlet, I think I left it there for a couple minutes as I took a nap, then tried it and it turned on again.

Are the lights on it lit? Try pressing the little button on the side.



Have you tried turning it off and on again.

Looool, good one! Miss the show. In fact turning it off won't let me turn it on. :( Will try that
