Switch Lite is turning off randomly, not sure why.

I had swapped the joysticks for Hall effect joysticks. I had taken everything apart and put everything together carefully. After putting it all back together my switch lite turns off randomly when I do slight twists or taps on the shell. The screen will also cut out randomly.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Logan!

Most of the time caused by cables which are not fully in OR due damaged components/traces on the motherboard! Can you double check to see if you can see any damage on the motherboard or missing components? Also re-check if all the cables are connected properly.

If you are not sure, please feel free to share some pictures with us (or video(s)).

Thanks in advance!

I had this issue with my switch light also. I made a guess that some ribbon cable that was attaching the monitor to the motherboard might be the issue. I ended up unplugging each ribbon cable and plugging them back in to make sure they are in tight. Works perfectly now.

I think with use the ribbon cables can wiggle free and cause a spotty and inconsistent connections causing the display to flicker or even shutoff.
