    • Repeat this same process for the other Joy Con.

    • Use a Y00 screwdriver to remove the four 6.3 mm-long screws securing the rear panel.

    • Use a JIS 000 driver or an official iFixit PH 000 driver to remove the following screws securing the rear panel:

    • One 2.5 mm-long screw on the top edge of the device

    • Two 2.5 mm-long screws on the bottom edge of the device

    • To prevent these tight screws from stripping, apply firm downward force, work slowly and try another JIS 000 or PH 000 driver if the screws won't come out.

    • Open the game card cartridge flap.

    • The game card cartridge flap attaches to the other half of the plastic shell, preventing you from completely lifting up the rear panel if it's closed.

    • Lift the rear panel up from the bottom of the device and remove it.

  9. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 1 van 2 Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 10, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use your fingers or a pair of tweezers to lift the microSD card reader straight up from the device to disconnect and remove it.

    • During reassembly, make sure the press connector underneath the foam pad is firmly connected to the motherboard. It may help to remove the foam pad before reinstalling the card reader.

    • Use a JIS 000 screwdriver or an official iFixit PH 000 driver to remove the six 3 mm screws securing the shield plate to the device.

  11. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 12, afbeelding 1 van 2 Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 12, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use your fingers or a pair of tweezers to peel back the piece of foam on the top edge of the device near the fan exhaust port.

    • If the foam doesn't easily peel away, don't force it as it might end up tearing. Carefully peel at different spots to pull back the foam.

  12. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 13, afbeelding 1 van 3 Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 13, afbeelding 2 van 3 Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 13, afbeelding 3 van 3
    • Insert a spudger underneath the shield plate along the edge of the device.

    • Pry up to lift the shield plate and remove it from the device.

    • You may feel a bit of resistance. This is normal, since the shield plate is slightly bonded to the heat sink with thermal paste.

    • A thick pink thermal compound bridges the gap between the shield plate and the copper heat sink underneath. This helps prevent the Switch from overheating.

    • You can reuse the pink thermal compound if you're careful. Keep the compound clean and make sure it makes solid contact between the heat sink and the shield during reassembly.

    • If you need to replace it, refer to our thermal paste guide to remove the old thermal compound and replace it with an appropriate compound, such as K5 Pro, during reassembly.

  13. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement, Disconnect the battery: stap 14, afbeelding 1 van 2 Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement, Disconnect the battery: stap 14, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use the point of a spudger to pry the battery connector straight up and out of its socket on the motherboard.

  14. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement, Remove the heat sink: stap 15, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Use a JIS 000 screwdriver or an official iFixit PH 000 driver to remove the three 3 mm screws securing the heat sink to the motherboard.

    • Carefully peel the two foam pieces stuck over both the heatsink and the fan away from the fan.

    • The foam only needs to be peeled back enough to clear the fan.

    • The foam is really delicate and tears easily. Use the following technique to peel the foam:

    • Insert the point of a spudger underneath the part of the foam that isn't stuck against anything,

    • Press the top of the foam with your finger to hold it in place.

    • Roll the spudger tip underneath the foam all the way to the other end of the foam to release it.

    • Use a spudger or your fingers to lift the heatsink up and off the motherboard to remove it.

    • You may feel a bit of resistance. This is normal, since the heat sink is slightly bonded to the CPU with thermal paste.

    • Clean off the old thermal paste from the heat sink and CPU using high-concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth. Apply new thermal paste to the CPU before reassembly.

    • Apply thermal paste to all surfaces that had thermal paste applied previously. This includes between the heatpipe and aluminum shield, which the Switch uses as additional heatsinking.

    • Use an opening tool or your fingernail to flip up the small, hinged locking flap on the digitizer cable's ZIF connector.

  17. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 19, afbeelding 1 van 2 Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 19, afbeelding 2 van 2
    • Use a pair of tweezers to slide the digitizer cable horizontally out of its connector on the game card reader board.

    • Before inserting the cable during reassembly, make sure the ZIF connector locking flap is flipped up.

    • With the cable parallel to the board, gently slide it into its connector.

    • Don't force the cable into the connector. If it doesn't insert, ensure the locking flap is flipped up, reposition the cable, and try again.

    • If your touchscreen doesn't work after the repair but your Game Card reader does, make sure this cable is properly inserted. If your Game Card reader also doesn't work, check the Game Card connector in the next step instead.

    • Use the point of a spudger to pry the headphone jack and game card reader connector straight up to disconnect it from the motherboard.

    • To re-attach press connectors like this one, carefully align and press down on one side until it clicks into place, then repeat on the other side. Do not press down on the middle. If the connector is misaligned, the pins can bend and cause permanent damage.

    • If the touch screen doesn't work and/or game cards aren't detected after reassembly, you might have not fully reconnected this press connector. Carefully disconnect it and try again.

  19. Nintendo Switch Headphone Jack and Game Card Reader Replacement: stap 21, afbeelding 1 van 1
    • Use a JIS 000 screwdriver or an official iFixit PH 000 driver to remove the three 3.1 mm screws securing the headphone jack and game card reader board to the device.

Conclusie

Compare your new replacement part to the original part. You may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

If your new game card reader doesn’t work after you boot up the device, turn it back off and disconnect and reconnect the battery connector.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

It worked, thanks

Angie Rayos - Antwoord

After changing the board out, I don’t have touch on the screen, put the original PCB back in the console and i have touch again, so its not that I did any damage to the flexes or ZIF connector. Any one have any ideas?

Griffin - Antwoord

Hey man, did you ever figure this out? I have the exact same issue. My touchscreen is no longer working.

Uncle Jessy -

Seems there are different kinds of card slots, European, American and Japanese, Installing for example an Eurean version into an American version wil result in a not working touchscreen , i think it`s a software issue as the cardslot had same parts, if anyone finds a workaround please let us know

Eric Boer (De pspdokter) -

Nintendo does not like aftermarket replacement part. Get original second hand and will be ok
