You are much more likely to remove this screw with a JIS #000 bit, like literally every other screw on this machine.

    aNtHoNy R - 回复

    Yes. The reverse is not so simple- you can’t see what you’re doing when you attempt to reconnect and it only takes one small error to completely bend the contacts on the connector. Very delicate.

    if you very gently remove the foam pad sticker, you can at least see better how it lines up and can feel your way to a degree… then you can stick the pad back in. The pad seems pretty critical in keeping things in place once reassembled.

    holmzee - 回复

    Tried several times to replace this SD reader module. As mentioned above, the issue is aligning the connectors together. It appears the foam tape is being used to hold the connection in place. (assuming you can make a viable connection) I am rather surprised at this design. In my experience, mylar ribbon cables like this usually slide into a small PC mounted socket. It appears Nintendo went the cheap route here. This design is prone to failure since it does not enable a positive connection - at least from what I can see.

    The Y screws are horrible. The bit in the took kit only managed to get two of them out. I have a Y0 bit that got the other two out. What a stupid design those are.

    How do you know if the thermal paste needs to be replaced?

    Youji Hong - 回复

    Once you remove a heatsink you must always replace thermal paste even if you had just applied it ( or add a little more) . The reason is that once heat sink is fitted, paste splits around because of pressure and only needed amount will remain. If you remove the heatsink then some paste will move so when installed again there will be spots without paste. Hope this is clear enough. In any case cost of paste is very small compared to work time and value of your equipment…..

    No you shouldn't . It will spill around because it is not viscous enough and then there will be no heat transfer. As suggested by author K5 PRO is the most appropriate compound for such cases.

    MacTek -

    Arctic is generally only supposed to be used on bigger heat sinks like a personal computer. Its not nearly as thick or gummy compared to K5 PRO, and you should always use something that’s thicker for smaller project like a Switch/phone/tablet.

    Shawn Christensen -

    I really don’t understand in what areas I should be replacing the thermal paste.

    Do I leave the giant pink glob that’s present on the back plate or replace that as well?

    Or do I only apply it under the heat sink and on the motherboard?

Hey, I have a weird problem with my big Switch, not actually sure if it’s the game slot or something on the motherboard. The game slot doesn’t work, comes up with the standard “Game can’t be read, re-insert…” message. I’ve tried it with Pokemon Let’s Go, Harry Potter, Mario Kart, Mario Odyssey and Gianna Sisters. All these work on my Switch Lite, the Pokemon game was new. The weird thing is: Gianna Sisters gets recognized immediately on the big Switch, loads up fine and I can play it. The other four games give me the error message. I’ve swapped the game slot over from another broken Switch, with no luck, but I am not sure if that game slot is working either. Before I buy another game slot off ebay, do you guys think that it’s the game slot or anything on the mainboard?

Oliver Schulze - 回复

So, to make things weird, it’s definitely not the game card reader. I’ve got a Switch with a broken screen that works in the dock and plays all games fine and took the game card reader out of that one and installed the game card reader from the console that doesn’t want to play games except for Gianna Sisters into the broken screen one. Broken screen one still plays games fine (fixed the screen by now) and the other one still only reads Gianna Sisters.

Oliver Schulze -

The guide was very well put together, I was able to swap out the part, no problems at all. Great job. For those seeking the same resolution I was for my problem: Swapping out the part did not fix my issue. I still receive the same “CardReadError” when inserting any one of my 33 switch games (though, for whatever reason, Monster Hunter works just fine, it’s the only game I own that the switch will read")

I will continue troubleshooting… hopefully get it figured out. If I do, I’ll come back and comment more. If I don’t, this will sadly be the end of the road for Nintendo with me.
