How to Disassemble Nintendo Switch Case

Disassembling the Nintendo Switch case can be a useful skill to have if you need to repair or upgrade your console. However, it is important to note that disassembling the Nintendo Switch will void your warranty, so it is recommended to only attempt this if you are comfortable working with electronics and are familiar with the inner workings of the console.

To disassemble the Nintendo Switch case, you will need a few tools:

  1. A Phillips head screwdriver
  2. A plastic prying tool or a guitar pick
  3. A small flashlight (optional)

Here are the steps to disassemble the Nintendo Switch case:

  1. Turn off the Nintendo Switch and remove the Joy-Con controllers from the console.
  2. Flip the Nintendo Switch over so that the back of the console is facing up.
  3. Locate the four Phillips head screws on the back of the console, near the corners.
  4. Use the Phillips head screwdriver to remove the four screws.
  5. Carefully lift the back panel off of the Nintendo Switch. You may need to use the plastic prying tool to gently pry the back panel away from the console.
  6. Once the back panel is removed, you should see the inside of the Nintendo Switch. Be careful not to touch any of the components inside the console.

At this point, you will be able to access the battery and the SD card, which are located on the bottom side of the motherboard. However, if you need to access other components or remove the motherboard, you will need to remove a few more screws.

To remove the motherboard:

  1. Locate the four screws that hold the motherboard in place. These screws are located on the corners of the motherboard.
  2. Use the Phillips head screwdriver to remove the four screws.
  3. Carefully lift the motherboard out of the Nintendo Switch case. Be careful not to damage any of the components or cables on the motherboard.

Once the motherboard is removed, you will be able to access the rest of the components inside the Nintendo Switch, including the CPU, GPU, RAM, and storage. However, it is recommended to only attempt to remove these components if you are familiar with electronics and are comfortable working with small components.

If you are disassembling the Nintendo Switch to perform a repair or upgrade, be sure to follow the steps in reverse order when reassembling the console. Make sure to tighten all screws securely, but be careful not to overtighten them, as this can strip the screws or damage the console.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
