Here's my joycon problem at the moment. First my joycon started drifting. Fixed it but now the R Joycon won't sync unless in tablet mode and the buttons dont work.

The problem with my joycon is that my characters always steer to the left and when I go to the eshop the control tends to scroll down a lot too. Help!!

My RIGHT joycon has some issues where the A and B button just acts like a home button then soon enough the L and R button did the same thing as the A and B buttons and I just bought replacment joycons this time it was neon colors but the left one still works
I bought the switch the first day it was released. Every time i switch on my switch i must press L button to synch it. :/

Don't make excuses for them faggot. This is flat out faulty engineering, not a manufacturing error. This is NOT normal. It is shit behavior by a company that has gone to shit. And you are a rim-jobbing faggot for defending it.

I ave an issue with my right joycon, when I put an a amiibo on the right joycon the amiibo wont be read by it, is there a way to fix that without buying a another right joycon?

No need to open or send in your Joy-cons. Just follow this simple guide. Not fake in any way, just super easy. The patch Nintendo issued for this issue is the solution, but it needs some help installing on the Joy-cons, so, follow the steps - BOOM, no more issues.

SwitchForce the Joy Cons also use Bluetooth 3 technology, while the Pro Con uses Bluetooth 4 technology, which improves range and reception. That information is on the Nintendo Switch specifications page, BTW.

Is the intro theme part of a song, or a short jingle exclusive to this channel? If it is a song, does anyone know what it is?

I'm sending my switch to Nintendo for repair for the joycon and the screen. The screen looks as if it is off-center.

How long does it usually take for Nintendo to fix the Joy Con and return it?
Zachary Chandos (1 year ago)
I don't even know if I have the issue cause i have only played exclusively with the pro controller and handheld, I have never used the joycon grip

Spawn Wave fixed his joy con by soldering on an extra wire, which acted as an antenna.

I was more than certain that there would be hardware or software problems for the first shipped out products of the Switch. So this is no surprise to me. I'm also happy that I held off on buying this thing until a couple months have passed since its launch. Also coupled with the fact that I lacked the funds to buy it in the first place I am happy they are making quick work on the updates and/or repairs needed to make this thing work properly. 👍

Surprisingly I hadn't had a single problem with it, mine came from Germany according to the box, other than that I haven't had a desyncing problem luckily everything which people have been saying I haven't had a problem with

i have had no issues, but still asking Nintendo... If my Left joy-con is actually needing the "free" fix, as i am sure they will be able to tell from the serial numbers from the Joy-Con themselves.

Should I invest in a pro controller for my switch or another set of Joy-Cons? Many people have said that the pro controller is very nice and is a better experience for playing games like Breath of the Wild, but I'm also considering purchasing another set of Joy-Cons for possible 4 player experiences as well as using the Joy-Cons for 2 player mode in Arms. What do you guys think?

Do people have problems with creaky Joycons?
Cam Pete (1 year ago)
I've had no joycon sync issues whatsoever. I could stand like 30 feet away or more (while blocking the joycon signal with my hand) and I've had no connectivity issues.

the controllers cost a tad bit too much
vinin2007 (1 year ago)
You are ghostrobo and I have proof on ghostrobo channel/your channel you have the same games for your switch and same accounts also in one of ghostrobo's videos he says he has a channel called switchforce all about the nintendo switch.

Will Nintendo help us if we have a scratched screen from the dock
Daniel .Bradley (1 year ago)
I've been having a issue with my switch which his pretty weird as it only ever happens when the screen is changing e.g. going from zelda to the home menu but about half the pixels in the screen go green and flashy in lines and i cant find anything on this online, its not been affecting gameplay as it only happens when going to the home screen and also in cut-scenes, which is the most annoying part. i don't want to get my switch replaced as i will loose all my zelda data (65 hours and over) does anyone know what is happening or how to fix it
patrick watkins (1 year ago)
i never encountered the problem in the first place although i do play relatively close to my TV and the dock so maybe that is close enough to not be an issue.
Elijah (1 year ago)
Never had issues, thankfully

Ive got a story to tell while you are scrolling through the comments. So, after hearing that GameStop will be getting more Nintendo switch consoles on March 22 I couldn't wait to go there after school. The entire school day I was thinking, man I can't wait until I can get a Nintendo switch today! When I walked off the bus I ran to our garage and grabbed my bike. I got my GameStop card and my cash out of my wallet and hurried to GameStop. After about 45 minutes of riding my bike I was finally there and I could hear the switch calling my name. I asked the clerk for a console and he said, sorry kid but we sold out 4 minutes after opening. Looks like I'll be waiting another month...there goes my good mood.

My problem is that sometimes, the analog stick input would "stick" and then release. It happens rarely. Is this a desync issue possibly?

You should put a red circle over the foam! It took me ten minutes to spot the difference lol.

We have had issues with the left Joycon where Link would run on his own and cause us to die repeatedly. Luckily, the left one we bought separately hasn't had any issues.

I got my Switch at launch and have STILL had no issues with my Joy Con. I run EVERYTHING in my house wireless as well and my Joy Con work perfectly a good 20+ feet away from the console. That being said, I've heard nothing but good things about Nintendo repairing any issues that seem to be faulty with their hardware so definitely if YOU are having an issue then just send them in. Also, buy a bloody Pro Controller because it's totally awesome! I charged mine the one time when I first got the system and I haven't needed to charge it once yet despite countless hours of Zelda and Fast RMX.

Your assistant in the video needs to get his joycon swapping skills in order.
Anyone else having wrong battery percentage displays on the switch ?
Dylan Mayhew (1 year ago)
Interesting... Good to see there is a fix. I have the issue but it comes and go's.... I sit very close to my tv, and my Switch is in plain view. The first day I used it I was having Joy Con sync issues on the left one. Went away the following days (I dont use it often got a Pro controller) But yesterday my Pro Controller was dead and the issue was back again.... I used the joy cons maybe 4 times and out of those 4 times 2 of them I had this issue.... I spoke to Nintendo after the first issue and they were prepared for me to send them back next day it was fine so i called them back to postpone it.... But idk the cause but its annoying... If I lean my self all the way forward on my sofa it works but lay back it wont.... I don't want to send it back or I wont be able to take the Switch with me or use it out of console mode... Right now my gf is using the tv and I want to play Zelda.... so yeah wont be able to do that if I send it back....

One thing that you didn't mention is that EVERYONE that bought their Switch (provided they didn't do something *stupid* with it) should still have their Switch under the first year free warranty. This means that if you call them up, they'll set up the repair, pay for shipping (you have pack it yourself), and send it back to you for free. Nintendo customer service is the best customer service that I've ever had to deal with.

Just because nintendo claims one thing doesn't make it so ;) - To don't think for a second that this couldn't be on the same scale as "other" consoles... like you so carefully put it. - Also seemingly like that would make it ok... lol, fanboys...
Jacen 1 (1 year ago)
As I expected, Nintendo is using the feedback from it's early adopters to identify and repair issues missed in lab testing.  Tens of Thousands of man hours in a lab is no match for the multi-million hours of field testing the Switch has received in the first week alone.  Are there issues?  Yes.  Are they being fixed and corrected going forward?  Hell, yes.  If it weren't for how vocal many first adopters have been about the issues, Nintendo would be doing this quietly, and few if any potential customers would hear anything about the problems.
Mr. Flash (1 year ago)
Yeah and how am I going to play if I send them my Joy-Con? Not everyone has a spare joy con or pro controlller laying arround... Geesh, Nintendo.
I only use the pro controller so idk if mines messed up or not
Bluntzy D (1 year ago)
this is actually bad news
Gambit771 (1 year ago)
But it doesn't need fixing as there are no issues with the switch at all. He probably has weak wifi and my switch is running fine with no issues whatsoever. That's the official line from nintendo owners in the internet isn't it?

I got my switch yesterday at gamestop. When are you getting your switch?

My left joy-con just stopped working! It just randomly shut off and now it won't charge or connect to the switch. I sent it into Nintendo and waiting for the repair to get done. Hopefully this foam gets included in the new joy-con! Anybody else have this problem?!
BuddyEman (1 year ago)
Well I cant find a Switch, but I am willing to wait, to get new JoyCon.
Ange Alexiel (1 year ago)
i knew that from more than a week ago, i got a grey switch with faulty left joycon, and i abought a new one to see, and the enw one was working wonderfully ... so i putted the OG one that came with the console in the box of the left controller i got and told the online site that this oycon had an issue.. and got refunded.
