Right joycon not connecting when wireless

My right joycon works fine when connected to the Switch, but it does not work wirelessly - the lights on the joycon go back and forth as if looking for something but nothing happens. I don’t think this is an antenna issue because the joycon doesn’t even work when held very near to the console (I was told bluetooth can work without antennas if it’s a very short distance). I don’t think it’s a battery issue either because the battery appears to be full and the lights on the joycon work. Any idea how to troubleshoot this? I would really appreciate it!

Hello! I had this same issue. A vital question is: have you done work on this joycon before? (Probably replacing the joystick?) If you have, or even if it has taken a fall or two and you don't mind opening up your controller to poke around, there is a fix that I've found. So, I have replaced a couple of left joycon sticks, because they notoriously suck, and I had to replace my right joycon one later on. I had done the left ones fine so I was cocky and went straight into the right on. There is a key difference though that I didn't notice until I started having connectivity issues: there is a part on the battery chasis on the right joycon that is not on the left. The part is a little plastic chip on the charging side, parallel to the battery. This chip is attached to a curved metal looking bar that has a button node on the end. This button node had come undone without me noticing it even existed when I was pulling the controller apart to put in a new joystick. It took some work to get the button plugged back in (very small, didn't want to use metal tweezers), but once I did and put it all back together, it worked like brand new!!). Now, I don't know for sure that this was the problem, I haven't looked at a schematic for the controller or anything and I don't know what that button node is, but it was unplugged, and the connection issue happened right after I fixed the joystick and when I plugged it back in, the controller connected at a distance with no problem…so I think that it's worth a try for ya. Best of luck!

Same issue here. Stumbled over your post and fixed my joycon with your explanation. You are my hero of the day.

Hello! I am facing the same issue but I cant find the little plastic chip mentioned. Could you please point out where it is? Something like colour, shape etc would be helpful! I can send you a photo of my joy con interior if that's better? My email address is mattlyons995@gmail.com. I cant afford to buy a new pair of joycons just because I broke it while trying to fix the joystick :(

Thank you very much!

You are my angel! It took me a second to find it. I attached it, and all better. Thank you.

Hello, could you provide further detail on this? After replacing the joystick on my righ joycon I am facing this exact issue!

If I'm not mistaking, you're actually talking about the antenna. It's a little square chip that slides right next to the battery - the wire then fits in a groove around the battery, until it connects to the motherboard. There is no locking mechanism, and it just pops on or off. Unfortunately, mine is still connected, but I hope other commenters were able to find this piece.

on the part where the joycon slides on, there is a button, if you press the button on both joycons, then slide them on for about 7 seconds, then slide them back off, press the button on the joycons again, and they should sync up.
