Reset AC Adapter
Unplug the AC adapter from both ends and leave it for a minute. Check the AC Adapter for any damages. If any damages found, replace the adapter with a new one. Always use the AC adapter that comes with the console. If the adapter has no damages, charge the console and try again.
Charge the Console
Sometimes, your Nintendo console won’t turn on due to the sufficient charge. Charge the Console for a while. When the console is charged, it will display either of the three screens.
The Entrance Screen: If the console displays the entrance screen, leave it on the charging mode. Use the console normally after it is fully charged. Check whether that you are using the latest system software.
The Battery Charge Indicator: If the charging indicator is displayed on a blank screen, that means the console has no charge. Leave the console for an hour and turn it on. If the console is turned on, ensure that you have the updated Nintendo Switch OS.
The Blank Screen: If the blank screen appears, try the hard reset once again. Still, it is not turning on, and it means that the console is not charging. Now, try a different wall outlet or try with another AC adapter. If the issue persists, contact the Nintendo Support.
Factory Reset is the last solution for this issue. Power off the console by pressing the Power button for twelve seconds. When the device is in the Shutdown mode, press and hold the volume up and down button for a few seconds, and press the Power button again. You will get the Recovery Mode screen. Use the on-screen procedure to do the Factory Reset. If the Recovery Mode screen is not displayed, you need to contact the Nintendo Support.
