My Nintendo Switch Isn’t Working - Any Ideas

I was going to play a Nintendo Switch game but I’m suddenly not able to turn the system on, whether I push the power button or plug it in and now I can’t access anything on it. Does anyone have any ideas how I can get it to work?

Is your docking station to recharge it plug in? If you can't figure it out you should call one of Nintendo's help hotlines and they'll walk you through it.

Make sure it's plugged in for a little while just to catch a bit of a charge, then try to do a hard reset by holding down the power button for fifteen seconds. Happened to me once, that worked.

Thanks everyone! You were right Powder, I plugged it in to charge and held the power button for 15 seconds, it started coming on after about 10 seconds. Now it’s charged at about 15%. I think devices can drain their power even when we don’t use them, that happened with my iPhone a couple times and of course that made me extra careful. I appreciate everyone’s help.

Hell yeah! Happy to hear it helped. The Switch is a really fun console, I know I'd be really bummed without mine.
