How to fix a Nintendo Switch that won’t turn on
Let it charge
Most of the time, when a Switch refuses to turn on, you can chalk it up to a drained battery. This is especially true if it’s been a long time since its last charge — over time, it may have lost even its residual charge.
Place it into its dock or plug the charging cable in directly and wait at least an hour for it to charge back up. The Switch should soon be operational, and will be fully charged in about three hours.
For more info on how to charge your Nintendo Switch, check out our article, “How to charge a Nintendo Switch console in 2 ways, and keep playing while it charges.”
Perform a hard reset
If your Switch remains unresponsive, even after a decent charging session, or if you can see a faint light coming from the blank screen, it’s time to force a shutdown instead. Don’t worry, your saved data won’t be lost.
To shut the Switch off manually:
1. Hold down the little circular power button on top of the Switch for between 15 seconds.
2. Release it and wait a few more seconds.
3. Push the power button normally.
If it still won’t turn on, you may have a deeper issue. Contact Nintendo support and see if they can help.
Find out the challenges and limitations of repairing “smart” batteries
Most laptop batteries are smart and consist of the “chemical battery” that is managed by the “digital battery.” A common protocol is the System Management Bus, better known as SMBus.
The typical SMBus battery has five or more battery connections consisting of positive and negative battery terminals, thermistor, clock and data. The connections are often unmarked; however, the positive and negative are commonly located at the outer edges of the connector and the inner contacts accommodate the clock and data. (The one-wire system combines clock and data.) For safety reasons, a separate thermistor wire is brought to the outside. Figure 1 illustrates a battery with six connections.
Figure 1: Terminal connection of a typical laptop battery 
The positive and negative terminals are usually placed on the outside; no norm exists on the arrangement of the other contacts.
Some batteries are equipped with a solid-state switch that is normally in the “off” position and no voltage is present at the battery terminals. Connecting the switch terminal to ground or pulling it up often turns the battery on. If this does not work, the pack may need a code for activation. Battery manufacturers keep these proprietary codes a well-guarded secret to which even service personnel have no access.
Use a voltmeter to locate the positive and negative battery terminals and establish the polarity. If no voltage is present, a solid-state switch may be in the “off” position and needs activating. Connect the voltmeter to the outer terminals, take a 100-Ohm resistor (other values may also work), tie one end to ground and with the other end touch each terminal while observing the voltmeter. Repeat by tying the resistor to a positive voltage potential. If there is no response, then it is possible that the battery is dead or locked by a code. The 100-Ohm resistor is low enough to engage a digital circuit and high enough to protect the battery against a possible electrical short.
Establishing the connection to the battery terminals should now enable charging. If the charge current stops after 30 seconds, an activation code may be required. Some battery manufacturers add an end-of-battery-life switch that turns the battery off when reaching a certain age or cycle count. They argue that customer satisfaction and safety can only be guaranteed by regularly replacing the battery. Mind you, such a policy also rotates inventory.
If at all possible, connect the thermistor during charging and discharging to protect the battery against possible overheating. Use an ohmmeter to locate the internal thermistor. The most common thermistors are 10 Kilo Ohm NTC, which reads 10kΩ at 20C (68F). NTC stands for negative temperature coefficient, meaning that the resistance decreases with rising temperature. In comparison, a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) causes the resistance to increase. Warming the battery with your hand is sufficient to detect a small change in resistor value when looking for the correct terminal on the battery.
After repair, the fuel gauge might not work, is inaccurate or provides wrong information. The battery may need some sort of an initialization/calibration process by fully charging and discharging the pack to reset the flags. A “flag” is a measuring point to mark and record an event(See BU-603: How to Calibrate a “Smart” Battery)
The circuits of some smart batteries must be kept “alive” during the replacement of the cells. Disconnecting the voltage for only a fraction of a second can erase vital data in the memory. An analogy is open-heart surgery where doctors must keep all organs of the patient alive. The lost data could contain the resistor value of the digitized shunt that is responsible for the coulomb counter and other data.
To assure continued operation when changing the cells, supply a secondary voltage of same voltage level through a 100-Ohm resistor to the circuit before disconnection. Remove the outside supply only after the circuit receives voltage again from the new cells. Furthermore, some fuel gauge chips run wires to each cell. These must be reassembled in the correct sequence beginning with cell one, then two, three and so forth.

Since the 4.0.0 System Update on the Nintendo Switch console, users now have the option to transfer an entire User Account and Save Data from one console to another, including to a Switch Lite, or the Switch OLED. Nintendo also released a new standard Switch unit with extended battery life, so quite a few Nintendo Switch players are taking the step to upgrade their system and transfer “their life”. Here’s how!
Data transferred is moved one user at a time, so you are able to choose which User Account you wish to remove from the source Switch, and transfer its contents to another console that does not have the User Account.
If you’re just moving data from one SD Card to another, check: how to transfer data between Nintendo Switch microSD cards.
Before starting the transfer, you must make sure you have met the following precautions:
- Both Nintendo Switch Consoles (The Source Console with the Account and the Target Console you wish to transfer to) must have the 4.0.0 Update, be connected to the internet, and be plugged into a power source.
- A Nintendo Account must be linked to the User Account you wish to transfer on the Source Console, and the Target Console cannot have that same Nintendo Account active.
- The Target Console cannot have more than 7 users at the time of the transfer – you will have to have 6 or fewer.
- The Target Console requires sufficient free space on the target console’s internal memory to receive the data that is being transferred – if the Account has a lot of data attached, be sure to have an SD card on hand.
Do You Have An Animal Crossing Island Save?
IMPORTANT: The process for transferring your Animal Crossing Island Save File (including island and resident data) is different than moving your Save Data to a new Switch! Before starting the User Transfer, download the Island Transfer Tool from the eShop first! See the step by step process for doing so here.
- On the Console with the User Account you wish to transfer, select the System Settings and drop down to Users and then look for Transfer Your User and Save Data.
- Select Next twice, and then select Source Console if this is the console you want to transfer from.
- Ensure that the console is both plugged into a power source, and has internet active, and move to the Target Console.
- On the Console you are moving the User Account to, select System Settings and drop down to Users and then look for Transfer Your User and Save Data.
- Select Next twice, and then select Target Console if this is the console you wish to transfer to.
- Ensure that the console is also plugged in to a power source and connected to the internet, and then select Sign In and choose to sign in using your Nintendo Account e-mail address or your Sign-in ID.
- Enter your credentials and password and then select Sign in, and then Next, and move to the Source Console again.
- Once the Target Console has been signed into, it will begin searching for the Source Console. Once it is found, select the Transfer option.
- Wait for the Transfer to complete fully, and then select End to complete this process.
Note this will entirely remove the User and Save Data from the Source Console. If there are no more existing users on the Source Console following the transfer, a placeholder account will be created.
You can also do this repeatedly, and move accounts as many times as you wish – even onto a console that you moved an account off of.
If you’re keeping the old Switch, you can of course also re-add your old Nintendo Account login to the device, as Nintendo Switch accounts can be used on multiple units at the same time. Well, sort of. You can’t play downloaded games on two consoles with the same login — so keep that in mind.
Literature on fast charging is reviewed from a multiscale perspective.
Extreme temperatures and temperature/current inhomogeneities are considered.
Alternative fast charging protocols are critically evaluated.
No reliable onboard methods to detect lithium plating are currently available.
The links between cell and pack level performance are still not well understood.
In the recent years, lithium-ion batteries have become the battery technology of choice for portable devices, electric vehicles and grid storage. While increasing numbers of car manufacturers are introducing electrified models into their offering, range anxiety and the length of time required to recharge the batteries are still a common concern. The high currents needed to accelerate the charging process have been known to reduce energy efficiency and cause accelerated capacity and power fade. Fast charging is a multiscale problem, therefore insights from atomic to system level are required to understand and improve fast charging performance. The present paper reviews the literature on the physical phenomena that limit battery charging speeds, the degradation mechanisms that commonly result from charging at high currents, and the approaches that have been proposed to address these issues. Special attention is paid to low temperature charging. Alternative fast charging protocols are presented and critically assessed. Safety implications are explored, including the potential influence of fast charging on thermal runaway characteristics. Finally, knowledge gaps are identified and recommendations are made for the direction of future research. The need to develop reliable onboard methods to detect lithium plating and mechanical degradation is highlighted. Robust model-based charging optimisation strategies are identified as key to enabling fast charging in all conditions. Thermal management strategies to both cool batteries during charging and preheat them in cold weather are acknowledged as critical, with a particular focus on techniques capable of achieving high speeds and good temperature homogeneities.

(Reuters) – Medical device maker St. Jude Medical Inc said on Friday it has notified doctors to stop implants of one of its cardiac pacemakers, citing reports of problems with electronic data reporting caused by a battery malfunction that could put patients at risk.
The affected device is the Nanostim leadless cardiac pacemaker (LCP). St. Jude, which is being acquired by Abbott Laboratories, said it had seven reports of lost telemetry and heart pacing output from the devices.
Of a total of 1,423 Nanostim devices implanted worldwide, 1,397 remain in service and represent a potential risk to patients, the company warned.
There have been no reports of patient injury associated with the malfunction, St. Jude said.
“We are currently working to ensure our physician partners worldwide have the information they need to effectively manage their patients,” St. Jude Chief Medical Officer Mark Carlson said in a statement, adding that the company remains committed to developing leadless pacing technology.
In a letter to doctors, St. Jude said they should not implant any Nanostim pacemakers they might have in stock and instead return them to the company. It said device replacement is recommended, with priority given to patients with implants of the longest duration.
Pacemakers are used to keep a patient’s heart beating at a normal healthy rate.
The seven reports of problems occurred between 29 and 37 months after implant, St. Jude said.
Two of the affected patients received replacement LCPs, three received more traditional pacemakers and two are awaiting replacement devices, it said. The company said it will analyze returned LCPs.
The LCP issue follows other recent problems with St. Jude heart devices. Earlier this month, the company announced a recall of some of its other implanted heart devices due to risk of premature battery depletion, which was linked to two deaths in Europe.
That recall involved ICDs and CRT-Ds that are used to shock a dangerously racing heart back to its normal rhythm, or to help maintain a normal heart rhythm. ICDs are implantable cardioverter defibrillators, while CRT-D stands for cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator.
St. Jude shares were off 71 cents, or nearly 1 percent, at $78.30 on the New York Stock Exchange.

Read this guide for tips and advice on how to maximise the life and performance of your EV battery.
Electric car batteries will last a long time, but there are things you can do to maintain your EV battery to help improve its longevity. Here are some quick tips or you can scroll down the page for more detailed advice.
Quick tips to maintain an electric car battery:
- Minimise rapid charging
- Keep the “State of Charge” between 20-80%
- Only charge fully for long trips
- Take your car for regular, short drives
- Don’t leave the car parked in one spot for too long
How long does an EV battery last?
Although battery tech has been around for ages, we’re still learning about the longevity of electric car batteries. But the good news is that so far… it’s good news.
There are plenty of examples of electric cars covering well over 100,000 miles and many early mass-produced EVs are on the used car market with the battery’s State of Health (SOH) still high.
Data over the past 10 years suggests battery health decreases by about 10% over five or six years. However, this doesn’t necessarily impact range and battery technology has improved rapidly in the last few years, so expect this figure to get better.
Most manufacturers offer a warranty on the battery for eight years or 100,000 miles which is much longer than most people keep a vehicle.
Battery performance and longevity will also vary between manufacturers and models. Luckily we know that high use of electric cars does not negatively impact the battery life – so drive away!
Can you minimise battery degradation in electric cars?
Battery degradation is a natural process and over time any battery will lose some “juice”.
However, it’s a lot more important to maintain the battery in an electric car because it’s something that will be used for a long time by you or someone after you. We also want to ensure maximum range and performance from our electric cars while we’re using them.
In addition, many electric car batteries go on to have a “second life” once their usefulness in powering four wheels has waned. These batteries are often used for energy storage, meaning one lithium-ion battery originally designed for an EV could be used for decades.
Obviously, we want to maximise the life of the battery as it benefits us but also minimises the impact on the environment.
Fortunately, there are things you can do to maximise the life of your car’s battery. Here’s a few tips to help maintain an electric car battery.
Medtronic’s Evera, Viva, Brava, Claria, Amplia, Compia, and Visia Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs) and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT-Ds) are devices that provide pacing for slow heart rhythms, and electrical shock or pacing to stop dangerously fast heart rhythms.
ICDs and CRT-Ds are both implanted under the skin in the upper chest area with connecting insulated wires called “leads” that go into the heart. A person may need an ICD or CRT-D if their heartbeat is too slow (bradycardia), too fast (tachycardia), or needs coordination to treat heart failure.
Reason for Recall
Medtronic is recalling the specified ICDs and CRT-Ds due to an unexpected and rapid decrease in battery life. The decrease in battery life is caused by a short circuit and will cause some devices to produce a “Recommended Replacement Time” (first warning that the battery is low) earlier than expected. Some devices may progress from “Recommended Replacement Time” to full battery depletion within as little as one day.
If the user does not respond to the first warning, the device may stop functioning. The likelihood that this issue will occur is constant after approximately three years after device use.
There have been 444 complaints regarding these devices. There are 264 Medical Device Reports, with 18 injuries including people experiencing bradycardia (slow heart rhythm) or heart failure symptoms. Zero deaths have been reported.
Who May be Affected
- Health care providers using the affected Evera and Visia family ICDs, Viva, Claria, Amplia, and Compia Family CRT-Ds
- Patients who require care using he affected Evera and Visia family ICDs, Viva, Claria, Amplia, and Compia Family CRT-Ds
What to Do
On February 3, 2021, Medtronic sent an Urgent Medical Device Correction letter to all affected health care professionals. The letter gave the following information:
Patient Management Guidance
- Continue normal follow-up per local clinical protocol.
- Data suggests that battery failure is less common in patients who use the battery most, such as for frequent pacing support and higher voltage therapy.
- Where possible, take advantage of the CareLink™ home monitoring system and the wireless low battery voltage CareAlert.
- The low battery voltage audible alert is shipped ‘On’ with high-urgency tones; Remind patients to contact their clinic if they hear an audible alert, particularly since they may be opting to delay clinic visits due to COVID-19 guidance.
- Inform a Medtronic Representative of any unexpected device behaviors.
- Be aware that the inability to operate the device, or transmit data, may be an indicator that the device has experienced this issue.
- For non-pacing dependent patients or for primary prevention ICD patients, replacement within one week of an unexpected RRT notification is recommended.
- For pacing dependent patients, immediate replacement is recommended following an unexpected RRT notification. Note: For all patients, this issue can also manifest as an unexpected change in the remaining longevity estimate cannot be attributed to programming changes, or changes in use conditions.
The letter also stated:
- Medtronic medical staff in consultation with the Independent Physician Quality Panel recommends against replacing the device due to the low rate of occurrence and the low risk for permanent harm if immediate replacement occurs in response to an unexpected RRT.
- Patients and clinicians may determine if a specific device is affected by looking up the serial number on Medtronic’s Product Performance website: http://wwwp.medtronic.com/productperformance/.
- Clinicians should also:
- Complete a Clinician Confirmation Certificate (included with the correction letter) and return via email to [email protected]
- Notify Medtronic of any adverse events or quality problems associated with your use of this product.
Customers with questions should contact their local Medtronic Representative or Medtronic Technical Services at:

How do I report a problem?
Health care professionals and consumers may report adverse reactions or quality problems they experienced using these devices to MedWatch: The FDA Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program using an online form, regular mail, or FAX.
The problem with hanging on to old consumer products is that the original batteries no longer hold a charge. To make matters worse, replacement batteries ordered online have likely been sitting on a warehouse shelf for years and are no better. [Larry G] faced this issue with his old Nintendo DS Lite. Luckily he remembered a hack from his youth where a friend’s Dad had duct-taped a massive alkaline D-cell battery pack to the back of a Gameboy to give it a longer life. And so [Larry] gave new life to his Nintendo DS Lite by designing and 3D printing a case for a battery with an even larger capacity than the original.
He first obtained a 2400 mAh 18650 lithium-ion cell, one with over voltage and under voltage protection. With that as a guide, he designed and 3D printed a case for it made up of four printed parts. The case was needed because the 18650 doesn’t fit in the NDS Lite’s battery compartment. Instead, one of the parts, which he calls the fake battery, fits in the compartment and has copper strips glued to it for connecting to the NDS Lite. From there, wires go to another part wherein sits the 18650. The remaining parts secure it all in place. Charging is done using the NDS Lite’s built-in charger. Even though the new case adds significant bulk, it actually fits well in the hand.
No doubt many of you have your own old NDS Lite sitting around that can benefit from this repair. The project details and STL files can be found on his Hackaday.io page using the above link.
This is also [Larry]’s entry for our Repairs You Can Print contest which puts him in the running for one of two Prusa i3 Mk3s plus the multi-material upgrade.
5 thoughts on “ Repairs You Can Print: Nintendo DS Lite With New Battery And Case ”
Where’s the BMS. D cell to lithium with original built in charger? This has nothing to do with 3D printing of course. Just safety.
Cool idea for battery expansion, are the little bits that hold it on up to it sticking out and weighing more? Some battery doors come off and get lost others are a real pain to open. I am sticking a lithium cell with silicone onto a 2xAAA powered headphone radio. Ugly but workable when carried in a belt case. I will only need to charge it with a single cell lithium charger once a month.
I wanted to do a write-up on this because it took me hours of research to figure this out myself, and I rarely see people mention it. Also, if there is a better / more specific subreddit for this, please let me know so I can cross-post it there.
This is only necessary if you replace the clock battery and want to keep your save file! Starting a new game has the same effect.
I recently replaced the clock battery in my childhood copy of Pokémon Emerald (the only one I still own). I did the replacement easy-peasy, fired it up, and didn’t get the “internal battery has run dry” message. Sweet! I planted a few berries, watered them, and shut it off, expecting it to finally work again. However, I booted it up the next day, and. Nothing. Not even a sprout.
Confused, I did some research. I knew it was not the “berry glitch” from R/S because that had been fixed in Emerald. I finally learned that in order for the clock to run again, the game’s time value must be lower than the RTC’s time value. The clock works by counting up, second by second, indefinitely from 1/1/2000 00:00:00. This value is then compared to the last value recorded in the save file to calculate how much time has passed since the game was last played.
Essentially, the value stored in the game is probably at least 10 years from 1/1/2000, meaning that without starting a new game, one would have to wait that amount of time before time would start to pass in-game again. At which point, the new battery would probably be dead again anyway.
Now, this might not be a big deal for resellers or people who just picked up a copy of the game, since starting a new game resets the saved clock value. However, this was my OG save file from 2005 with over 100 hours, and there was no way I was starting a new game.
After even more research, I found that you can edit the value of the clock in two ways: with a cartridge dumper tool and a PC (I don’t own one of these tools and I doubt very many of you do), or with this little piece of homebrew Nintendo DS software called rtcread-ds. The second option makes a lot of sense – all you need is a DS or DS Lite and a flash card. It took me forever to find this program, but once I tried it out, it worked like a charm!
Here is a quick guide on how to get the clock running again at the correct time IRL:
Put rtcread-ds on flash card, insert this and the Gen 3 Pokémon game into the DS
Boot into rtcread-ds
Select “read RTC from slot-2”. It should be somewhere close to 1/1/2000 if there is a fresh battery in the game.
Select “write to RTC” and enter the current date. Write this value to the game.
These first four steps will be sufficient to get your berries growing again, but if you are like me and would be bothered if the in-game time was still not correct, you can fix it with the following steps:
5. Boot into the game. Check the clock in your house in Littleroot. Make note of what time it is and find how far ahead/behind it is compared to the actual time IRL.
6. Boot back into rtc-ds on the flash card and adjust the clock value by whatever the difference was in step 5. NOTE: the value you set it to will probably not be the actual time. The time is determined by the difference between the two values, not the actual value of the RTC.
7. Boot back into the game and check the clock to verify the in-game time is correct, and that’s it!
I hope this can help somebody, because it took me hours of research to find out about this easy solution. Now I can grow berries, get Espeon/Umbreon, and explore Schoal Cave at low tide again for the first time in years, on the same save file I had as a kid!

When it comes time to purchase a new set of deep-cycle, flooded lead-acid batteries, golf car fleet managers look for ways to save money. With many golf cars requiring 48-volt battery packs, one of the most common money-saving assumptions is that purchasing fewer batteries with higher voltages will be a less expensive alternative. For example, a typical 48-volt golf car may use eight 6-volt batteries, six 8-volt batteries, or four 12-volt batteries. Purchasing fewer batteries with a higher voltage is appealing because it reduces your upfront cost. However, the pack configuration should be based on a few more factors.
The example below shows a comparison between three different packs utilizing three main battery voltages. As the table shows, the 6-volt system has a higher capacity than the 8-volt and 12-volt systems. A typical round of golf will require about 40 minutes of run time while discharged at 56 amps. With all three configurations, the batteries have more than enough capacity to get through two rounds.
However, one thing to keep in mind is the effect of depth of discharge (DOD). A battery’s DOD is defined as the capacity taken out of the batteries as a percentage of its overall capacity before recharging. The lower the depth of discharge in lead acid batteries, the greater number of cycles they will deliver. Theoretically, a battery that is routinely discharged to 30 percent DOD will last about 2.2 times as long as a battery that is discharged to 60 percent. With the 6-volt and 8-volt systems, a day’s worth of golf car use discharges the battery pack to a lesser extent. This can reduce your overall operating costs in the long run, by yielding greater cycle life and ultimately extending the time between replacements.
The pack configuration that fits a given application can be determined by weighing upfront costs, battery capacity and cycle life. The price points listed below show that an 8-volt and 6-volt pack costs roughly 13 percent and 37 percent more than a 12-volt pack respectively. Although the initial cost is greater for the 6-volt and 8-volt packs, these configurations give a much greater return on investment*. Armed with this information, you can make a better decision on which battery configuration truly gives you the most cost savings.
*Vehicles utilizing regenerative braking and the use of opportunity charging can reduce the depth of discharge and extend cycle life.
The values above were obtained from a study of various batteries in the industry. Expected cycle life is theoretical and is highly dependent on other factors, such as maintenance and battery brand. Price points were obtained by comparing the three different classes of batteries at an average retail price.
