only when it’s not connected to the switch so i cannot play handheld mode


@whimzy sounds like the rail on the console is either faulty or has disconnect from the connector inside the switch


is it easy to replace myself or should i go to a repair shop?


@whimzy its easy enough, only 3 screws hold the rail on and the ribbon connects to the motherboard, you will need to watch the teardown video to see how to disassemble the back cover and remove the metal sheild etc. make sure to look at the 3 screws on each side tho as 1 is different
