Fixing the Nintendo Switch Dock (no signal/LED blinking)
My Nintendo Switch is just over a year old now and out of warranty, and I'm having issues with my Nintendo-licenced dock. Basically, when I insert my Switch, the device charges and outputs a signal normally for a few seconds, then all power drops and the LED starts blinking on the dock.
I can charge my device by plugging it directly in the USB-C power brick.
As Nintendo recommends, I tried unplugging both the power and HDMI cables, waiting a few minutes, inserting the power cable back, then the HDMI cable, then the Switch, and while this solution worked last week when the issue first appeared, it no longer works now.
Here in Canada, Nintendo charges $100 + $10 shipping + tax for setting up a repair, or $75 + 7$ shipping + tax for a refurbished dock. If possible, I'd prefer reparing the dock myself.
Do you know what causes this issue and how to fix it?
Just a quick update: my issue has shifted to something similar to this: Nintendo Switch not charging, USB-C port, BQ24193 or M92T36 chip?
I have replaced the Switch dock with another official dock, but I have not replaced the AC adapter. With this new official dock, I still get the blinking LED/no charging/no HDMI output issue. I can however charge my console by plugging it directly in the AC adapter.
This shows that the dock itself cannot be at fault, since the issue persists with another official dock. Two possible culprits remain: the AC adapter or the Switch itself. I will try to get my hands on another AC adapter and see if the issue is resolved.
Questa è una buona domanda?
I bought an Insignia dock (AFAIK, the only dock that doesn't brick the console) as a replacement, and it works perfectly, which shows that the problem lies with the official dock. But even though the Insignia dock works, I would like to repair the official dock if possible.
and, then again it may not be the dock after all.....
i had to do a factory reset on my tv and all is fine, hope this helps

What work for me was holding the power button for 15 seconds then try turning it back on after 1 minute. This forces the switch to turn off since his basically on sleep mode

Thank you optimusxcrime Darkside! I struggled with this for an hour this morning before finding this thread. Doing a factory reset on my TV never would have occurred to me but it did indeed fix this problem for me. Thank you!!!

QUESTION!, has anyone had this problem where your switch CHARGES on the dock.. but does not project anything on the TV. BUT after testing another dock and nintendo switch.. Its clearly something specific to the switch, has anyone had experience with this?
