Nintendo Switch Teardown

1 hour


My Problem

The housing on my Switch had become warped, in ordered a replacement housing and decided to throw some custom colors on my Joy-Cons while I was at it.

My Fix

Fairly easy, the hardest part was making sure not to tear the digitizer flex and making sure all the meshes small parts were transferred from the old to the new. I had taken apart before to replace the daughter board after touch stopped working from a drop (parts of the connection broke, not the flex).

My Advice

Make sure to be carefull with the daughter board, the connections are *very* easily bent and broken.
