my first switch had the problem cracking by the power button and the back shell, i traded it in for a new one, and i immediately loosened my screws one turn each, and it's perfectly fine.

Wouldn’t it be kinda funny if someone cracked their Switch while they were checking. I can totally see my friend possibly doing that by accident, mostly because he has somewhat poor motor skills due to his condition. He’s still a great friend, though. 😄

Funny how a Nintendo Switch ad played before this video. I guess we’ll start this video on a positive note.

I have a day 1 switch that developed cracks all around the vents and the usb-c port about 8 months in, but it's really just cosmetic, so I didn't worry about it. I called nintendo last month, (June 2017) for a joycon issue, and they offered an out-of-warranty repair for the joycon and case replacement for $99 USD.

My switch doesn't have any cracks, but every once in a while when I'm playing handheld my joycons keep disconnecting. Any solutions?
This made my Switch crack up!

People leave their switch the sun thus heats the plastic and makes it crack, simply keep your switch in the shade and the plastic will be fine.

Sometimes when my joycons are connected to the switch, the screen will appear saying that they aren't connected. Any ideas to fix?

my switch I got on Christmas and oh god it's been horrible My little brother does not take care of it whatsoever He throws it when he gets made The joycons disconnect in the middle of the game the joycons also don't lock anymore thought I had cracks on the back turned out it was just a line from a pencil so I just erased it dead pixel on the screen which is distracting Brother broke the L button for playing to much Fortnite This is why I'm gonna try and get me my own switch so I don't have a family trying to break it

Yep. While I was playing Fortnite, I picked up the Switch and noticed that it was really hot. I then looked for cracks, and lo and behold, crack.

The joystick for my left joy con is struggling. Every time I turn it down, it is unresponsive unless I press it harder and my plastic joycons are a little loose but those are the only problem I'm having with it. I am really sorry to those of you who have cracks
Neko Seikatsu (6 days ago)
Isaac Rumley yea theres kits online for like 10 bucks but apparently if I do replace the little latches the warranty on the console goes away. Not entirely sure tho
Isaac Rumley (6 days ago)
Neko Seikatsu yea mine's not that bad it still stays on but apparently you can replace the thing that hold the joy cons on the console from plastic to metal and it stays secure
Neko Seikatsu (6 days ago)
Isaac Rumley the lock that keeps the joy cons on the switch itself is broken for my right one. So it slides off without pressing the button, but with some force so it doesnt fall off by accident. Besides that mines not cracked at all
I got a Nintendo Switch ad before this.

Nintendo was sent replacement shells in February, it's not heat that cracks it, nintendo should fix for free
Nin10Dork -Caleb (8 days ago)
Nintendo reps aren't allowed to publicly state the reason why the switch cracks, however after testing the issue they discovered that it's not due to the heat,the replacement shells have different paint for the switch logo and in some cases are actually a tad to large so the cart flap doesn't sit well
Nick Cheamo (8 days ago)
I think it does happen because of the heat because the same happened to me in the summer (I live in Australia) I didn’t think about that
Brae (8 days ago)
All my switch has is my joycons popping out all the time and one of them broke.

Nice Guy (8 days ago)
My joy cons are loose, and I do have cracks on the cooling area. My switch is not bent tho.
steverman 5555 (8 days ago)
I don’t have any cracks.. however I think that’s because my switch has decals on it and the decals are holding the plastic together
Tomto! (8 days ago)
The switch has okay hardware, and great games but the backdoor, shell, and the OS is trash

My left joy con is so loose that you can take it off from the switch with your hand.
Manu45678 ! (8 days ago)
Luckily mine isn’t cracked, although I do have a loose Joycon. It’s probably because of me living outside of the U.S.
Lucio Main (8 days ago)
I haven't found any cracks, however I feel like the plastic covering the vent is really weak. i'm surprised mine hasn't cracked, despite dropping from 30cm onto an office chair leg, making the right joy con able to be pulled off the track without pressing the button. :|

jonathan salandino (8 days ago)
This never happend to me i have a switch but since i dont use it all the time thats probably the reason why i dont have any cracks edit and i dont actually properly take care of my switch on the back of it it has scratches a lot of them are by me the others by scratching it on the wall
DA PEPO (8 days ago)
Mine isn’t cuz I don’t really use it for very extended periods of time or maybe it’s cuz people don’t put covers on it and put it I. Backpacks without any sort of protection
Russell Kyle (8 days ago)
Could this be from the twisting that is sometimes required to remove the switch from some 3rd party cases?
Get Rekt (8 days ago)
The switch has so many problems. It gets scratches on it the first time you ever even touch it. Drifting analog sticks, loose joycons too. Just one more thing to add to my list: CRACKS

SpikySpikes (9 days ago)
bought mine on release day and it doesnt have a single crack
AlcoholicGam3r (9 days ago)
In my case it was the screws being too tight on my Console, cracked on the top right hand corner sitting in my case for a month. It was still under warranty and I got it repaired for free. The Nintendo repair center didn't charge me for accidental damage so it must be a very common thing.

Fedorable _556 (9 days ago)
No, and while the problem seems to affect less than 20 percent of switch owners or at least according to polls I've seen, mine is still pretty new

Oh that's why's mine is cracked
Tyler Ford (10 days ago)
My switch cracked a little bit but I do take great care of it. I think it's because tempature change tho. I think I used it to much and it overheated I gave it a break and my bedroom fan was on and I came back and there was a crack so I do believe most of these cracks are coming from sudden tempature changes
ExoticKeko (10 days ago)
On my minus remotes and possible just my switch when I pull up on the stick it will sometimes do this thing where it will just forever go up when I let go of the stick and it’s annoying in some games (Imagine scoping with a gun or pulling up the map in fortnite and then falling off a ledge cause of it)

I don't have this problem with the switch but I had it with my New Nintendo 2ds. I have a case for my 2ds, but I still have a problem. I think the plastic is cheap and bad.

MadOverGames (10 days ago)
I legit took the time to take a closer look at their system, and compare there’s to mine. None of them look like they could’ve “cracked” in it own. Those consoles are breaking due to horrible owners they have. When have you ever heard of any Nintendo console breaking on everyone? I’ll wait. Again those owners are to blame their either dropping theirs, opening up the switch and not properly putting docked. Also I’m guessing they don’t put it in a case when they take it on the go
