Beware of new System Update 13.2.0

For me it disabled the Switch dock.
No docked TV play anymore until fixed.

Edit: Found an easy fix.

My Switch OLED running 13.2.0 is still running fine in my Switch OLED dock.

Give more details, like what model are you using, and how old is it?

Very first model. It worked fine this morning. Was using it docked.
Then came the prompt for the new system update.
I updated and waited for the auto-restart.
It did not auto-restart.
Then I tried to restart manually multiple times to no avail.
Well, the Switch works in handheld, no problem, but the dock won't transfer the picture to the tv anymore.

I tried to update the dock.
It wants the Switch in the dock for that.
But it doesn't register that the Switch is in the dock.

I shut down the console. It needed to be powered off entirely. Restarting/standby wasn't enough, but now it works. Problem solved.

For others with the same problem, hold down the power button for several seconds, then power off the console. Things should return to normal.

It was the first time this happened to me from a system update, but fortunately its easy to fix.

It could very well be a one-off error since you would expect something this serious to be widely reported. Have you come across anybody else who has encountered this?

Edit: Looks like your question was answered.

I heard frightening stuff from one of the 2017 system updates, but that was solved long ago.

I thought this issue wasn't widely reported because system update 13.2.0 is brandnew. Someone always needs to be the first one to report a new issue.

Well, yes, but I would have expected more than just one person to have encountered it, and a quick internet search did not turn up any other reports.

I got this update right before doing two missions in Apex this morning, and had no problems. My Switch was docked the whole time (haven't used it much undocked lately).

It's always a good thing to shutdown or restart the Switch like a computer sometimes this is what it needs to properly update. This shouldn't be lost on anyone that has a personal computer even I do that on my SmartPhone.

This happens to my Switch consoles frequently. Also, a similar thing will happen with the wired internet connection. At first I could not figure out what was going wrong, I tested just about every step along the way, but then it occurred to me to just totally power it down and restart. Then it worked.
I have to do this more often than I like, but it fixes it every time.

It seems like I've seen a pattern in the forum with people that never shut down their switch & encountering console glitches. Rebooting, can clear some cobwebs.(or the hard reboot: hold power button for like ten seconds.) Nothing wrong at all with asking hereūüĆą, but I know it sucks if you get to a point where you need to go online to seek help for your console, and waiting for a response, etc..

Unless you're all digital, how is it even possible to never fully power down your Switch? (Not taking a shot at the OP specifically, but I've heard multiple people now say they always leave it in sleep mode since they got it).

I always thought saves & other data were in danger of being corrupted if you switched carts while the system was on (even if there are no games running), so I've always fully powered down to do so (leave it in sleep mode all other times though).

This was something I heard back during the 3DS years though, so I fully acknowledge things may be different for Switch.

@RR529 That used to be a problem with the Game Boy or DS, but every Nintendo handheld since the DSi has been capable of swapping carts while the system is on. On Switch it definitely wouldn't corrupt your saves anyway since they're stored on the system rather than the cartridge.

@CinnamonRobin, huh, that's good to know.

Only time I put sleep mode if I have game running to play later otherwise I always power down my Switch. Powering back on isn't a stone age days-that helps the system reboot itself to work better. Goes like this would you leave your car running all night so the next day you don't have to start it up. No because you have no gas or it be on fire or dead because no more gas. So one needs to use common sense here and that not very hard to do.

Like my 3DS, I always leave my Switch in sleep mode, and about the only time I reboot is when I get a firmware update. The Switch operating system is extraordinarily robust, and no harm will be caused by swapping cartridges with the system running. You can even eject a cartridge while a game is running, and the worst that will happen is that the Switch will inform you that the cartridge can not be read, and it will exit cleanly to the main screen. The only time anything could be corrupted is if you eject a cartridge, exit a game, or cycle the power on your Switch while a game save is being created, and even in that case, only the save will be corrupted and you will lose progress in that game only. The rest of the system will be unaffected.

There are games that require Sleep Mode.
BRAVELY DEFAULT II for instance. It has an "exploration mode" where you leave the game running in standby (for up to 12 hours every time) to gain new rewards. I make use of that, because anything that eases off the grindy nature and helps beating the brutal bosses is welcome.
