Topic: Loose charging cable

Posts 1 to 12 of 12

Hello, I just got a Nintendo Switch for my birthday. The Switch itself was on a display in the store so it really wasn´t completely new, it had been unboxed before. So the guy packed it, technically it was brand new tho. Now today I noticed that when I plug in the charging cable to my Switch it kinda moves around a little bit? Is it normal? When I hold it and move it, it moves up and down a little bit.

Hope you can help!

Perfectly normal. Every Switch I’ve ever had my hands on has had some play (movement) at the charging port in handheld mode. You’re good.

Yep, perfectly normal. I’ve actually seen several that have considerably more side-to-side (left to right) play than yours appears to.

Okay, thank you so much! Also is it normal when the joycons move a little bit?

A little play is always ok. Don’t let your OCD get the best of you. 😁

And I’m not mocking your OCD. I know all about it. My left Joycon was angled out, with the top being further away than the bottom. Bothered the hell out of me.

Took a tiny Phillips head and tightened the top two rails screws on the console. It’s straight now.

As long as the plug doesn't easily fall out and an electrical connection is maintained then I wouldn't worry about it. If you have any concerns then I would contact the store you purchased it from and see if they can offer a remedy.

Did you not use on the dock as well to see.

Now I noticed a new thing, my left JoyCon's thumbstick makes a springy noise when I move it down. It is so annoying. Is that normal too or should I go and try to replace it cuz its a 150km ride from my location to the store.

If you’re trolling us, well-done. If not, that’s bad. You might have obsessive-compulsive disorder, bud.

I mean that in a completely serious, non-derogatory or joking way.

You’re in a loop. Stop looking for something wrong with your Switch. Play games.

Why should I be trolling you? I did alot of research before getting the Switch and I am aware of all the problems so I am worried because it is a brand new Switch

Just go replace it. "The Switch itself was on a display in the store so it really wasn´t completely new, "

That's not new.
