Hot on the Heels of v3.0.3 which offered a 'de-bricking' fix, TX is now telling users how to fix their bad 'install jobs'
TX is saying in their latest 'press release', that people in a hurry to install their SX Core, have used METAL or SHARP or LARGE tools to remove the thin metal shield that covers the NVidia CPU, and in doing so they have damaged one or more of the 'two small caps' which are shown in the picture above, and if any boot issues were the Switch gets 'stuck' on the 'JoyCon' logo they should inspect the caps pictured above for any possible damage.
It turns out most users exhibiting these symptoms have used METAL (or) SHARP (or) LARGE tools to remove the CPU shield, and in doing so, they have damaged either or both the two small caps located just outside of the shield area.
Resoldering these two caps back in place, or replacing them with a similar SMD 0.1uf 10v 0201 part will solve all your issues from getting stuck at the 'JoyCon' logo. It is recommended to get a professional installer to do the job for you, if you don't have the correct tools to complete your SX Core installation successfully.
- The capacitors in question should look solid and untouched like the picture above
- These two caps are located in the same spot on both the (v1) 'erista' and (v2) 'mariko' motherboards.
- The shield needs to be removed carefully using plastic or small tools and from the other side with no nearby components
