The console wakes up as soon as it gets into sleep mode


I recently received a switch lite that supposedly didn't boot.

Everything seems fine, no software update required, the buttons are okay, the touchscreen is responsive.

The switch seems to be charging correctly, I don't see the "Charging icon" going in and out.

Apparently, the console can go into sleep mode at random while playing.

It also wakes up after a few seconds each time it gets into sleep mode.

The battery seems fine too: Good size, depletes at a normal rate.

The USB-C port doesn't seem damaged.

The motherboard is clean.

I have tried removing and reinserting the battery / power naps, but it didn't change anything.

Do you have any idea about what could cause this problem ?

I have a multimeter, but don't quite know how to use it.

I can also solder if needed.

Thank you for your time.

I don't see any problem with the tension. I don't know which values I'm supposed to get, but, everything goes to 0 whenever it goes into sleep and everything goes back to "normal values" in an instant when the console lights up again.

I tried to clean the motherboard a bit and check if any piece was moving, but the problem stays the same.


Resetting everything does not work


Hi Ryan! This happened with the Switch like 5-6 years ago. It was a bug in the software back that day. Do you have any spare parts to test? I would test with a new battery first. But does sounds like a component on the motherboard it self.


Hi Koppie !

Unfortunately, I do not have any spare parts.

I have seen several posts indicating that some of those consoles sent to Nintendo for that problem just got replaced with other consoles having the same problem, so it might be a defect...


Yeah, this probably is motherboard related. I would try a battery first (if this is possible). Otherwise you need to run checks on the motherboard or replace it for a other one…
