Controller is not charging, and has no signs of life
A while ago I had a switch pro controller completely shut off on me, it no longer responds to the sync button, and the light that indicates charging no longer works either. I have been racking my brain trying to get this thing to work and I can’t seem to find anything that sticks. I have tried changing the batteries, changing the ribbon cables and using a different board for the buttons but nothing can get it to come back to life. The only thing I haven’t done yet is replacing the motors (the small ribbon cables for the motors ripped), but that shouldn’t be a problem if my issue is that no power goes to the board. I have yet to see if reflowing the charging chip will help, but I’m not comfortable enough with a hot air gun to do that anyway yet.
If anyone here has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
