If your Nintendo Switch has been dropped in water or exposed to moisture, it is important to act quickly to try to save the device. Follow these steps to try to fix a wet Nintendo Switch case:
First, turn off the Nintendo Switch immediately. If the device is still on, the moisture can cause further damage.
Remove the battery, if possible. If your Switch model does not have a removable battery, skip this step.
Dry off the outside of the Nintendo Switch as much as possible using a clean, dry cloth. Be careful not to spread any water or moisture around the device.
Carefully open the case of the Nintendo Switch, being careful not to let any water or moisture inside. If the case is difficult to open or if you are unsure how to do it safely, you may want to consider seeking professional repair services.
Once the case is open, use a clean, dry cloth to blot any water or moisture from the inside of the device. Be sure to dry off all the components, including the battery, the circuit board, and any other electronics.
If there is any water or moisture in the charging port, you can try using a dry cloth or a small tool (such as a toothpick or a wooden skewer) to gently blot or scrape it out. Be very careful not to damage the port or any other components.
Once the inside of the Nintendo Switch is as dry as possible, close the case and reinsert the battery, if applicable.
Place the Nintendo Switch in a dry, well-ventilated area, away from any sources of heat or moisture. Allow the device to air-dry completely, which may take several hours or overnight.
Once the Nintendo Switch is fully dry, turn it on and test that it is functioning properly. If everything seems to be working correctly, the repair is likely a success.
If the Nintendo Switch does not turn on or if it appears to be damaged in any way, you may want to consider seeking professional repair services. A repair shop may be able to fix any issues or suggest alternative repair methods.
It is important to note that moisture damage can be very serious and can cause permanent damage to electronics. If you are unable to fix your wet Nintendo Switch case, or if you are unsure how to proceed, it is always best to seek professional help.
