I Bought 23 BROKEN Nintendo Switches - Can I Fix Them and Make Money?

I Bought 23 BROKEN Nintendo Switches for $1,955 to Try and Fix Them AND Make Money! I thought I'd be able to fix almost all of these Switches...but I was wrong! I show how to fix lots of common issues like diagnosing and replacing the M92T36 charge chip, P13USB video chip, as well as liquid damage.

    • @Adam Shafton Maybe this is a late answer, but the level of integration in the manufacturing process of these chips makes them impossible to be repaired, not just because it would be so invasive that would destroy the chip itself, but because the costs of the equipment required to build chips, or microprocessors just makes it impossible to be profitable to small scale repair or manufactures.

  • it’s kind of sad that these switches cost $300 and break way too easily and in ways that are very unnoticeable.

  • Why switch lites are better: break way less, more comfy to hold, no shaking joy cons, cheaper. I’m a Pokemon fan so hand held is way better. If you love big screen then normal switch is for you this is just my opinion.

  • I've always been an electronics hobbyist, and I repair things for myself. (You know, buy cheap, and have something nice) I never did it for profit. But with COVID, I've had more time on my hands, and the local used game store has asked me to help with some repairs. Yesterday, I replaced a USB-C port on a Nintendo switch... and it wouldn't even move with my normal hot air settings. So I put some standard solder on it to try to get it to flow... and it still didn't move. Eventually, I turned the heat up to around 420 and got it to move... but it took longer than I would have liked. Also... the board was under the heat for longer than I would like. Because of that, I decided to see what I was doing wrong. (Never really had any issues with hot air, and SMT in the past) So... my question is... what temp do you run your hot air at? I guess Nintendo just uses some crazy high temp solder on their boards. I just don't want to damage something with too much heat... but then again... heat for too long is not good either. Thanks... and keep making great vids.
