@Hyrule_Rainclouds Just curious. Does your Switch Lite have version 12.0.3 right off the bat?

As a refresher, this has been happening due to nintendo removed a network application thanks to an error with the e-shop. Which is stupid since I was having no problems with it. Hopefully they implement something new very soon. Im going on vacation and rather not sit through cable tv.

@MarioLover92 No, my Switch Lite did not have System Update 12.0.3 from the start. I did download and install it, though. I actually had trouble downloading System Update 12.0.3 for my regular Switch and had to use public Wi-Fi to get it. But it downloaded on my Switch Lite at home just fine. I can even connect my Switch Lite to the Internet in our back bedroom and download games and updates, which I can't do with my regular Switch.

I got my regular Switch in August 2018, so it's a Ver. 1 model but not a launch model. Again, I don't know if any of this makes a difference. I think I've read that people with a Switch Lite have been getting the error, too. It just seems weird that my Switch Lite works on System Update 12.0.3 with the same Internet setup but my regular Switch doesn't.

Might try to experiment more with my Switch Lite to see if I get the error.

I don't see how it can be unrelated to the update though, at least for some people. Maybe they have changed some things to do with the network, which has caused some issues for some users, but I didn't have any problems downloading patches or games until the update was installed today. There might be an element of it being coincidence, however downloads were definitely working for me up until at least a couple of days ago (I'm pretty sure I had some patches downloaded on Tuesday and I bought some DLC at the weekend). I definitely haven't had issues for a week like some users. First time I noticed it was today.

Just wanted to mention that I tried downloading a different game to my Switch Lite. I did get Error 2123-1502 once on my Lite, but it seems to be working fine after that. Still downloading at least. Just seems strange to me that I would have so much trouble with my regular Switch and hardly any with my new Switch Lite.

And I think System Update 12.0.3 did mess things up for a lot of people! Sorry if I implied differently or seemed to imply differently. I just wanted to say that I started having this issue last week, so the issue was there for at least a few people from before. I had never gotten an error like this until last week and have hardly gotten any errors at all since getting a Switch. Nintendo did some maintenance last week, I think?

I first got the error when attempting to download the preload for Game Builder Garage. Not sure if it seems to affect newer-release games more, or at least it was that way before System Update 12.0.3, and after System Update 12.0.3, it now affects all game and game update downloads? Just trying to see if there's a pattern, I guess.

Even if it's not because of the update, it must be related. Had anyone ever even heard about the error until just a few days ago? I can say I had never seen it on my Switch that I've had since launch until right after the update.

All right, so I ended up getting the update installed. Thankfully, my Switch has been working a-okay aside from that downloading issue. I went to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but apparently I didn't get its latest update, which it had trouble downloading. There was an X on its progress bar. I cleared the cache and keyboard data, restarted the console, and it was able to install the MK8D update. Played the online multiplayer for a good while afterward. I played Animal Crossing: New Horizons as well, and was able to send some items to my bro (we're on each others' in-game friend lists).

Out of curiosity I did try to download the demo for Game Builder Garage. It did end up on the home menu (no error codes), but that same X came up. Restarting didn't fix it either - perhaps I'll need to start the download again later. I do have it archived currently.

@Heavyarms55 Yeah, that seems to be a brand new problem. I'm sure Nintendo is aware of this, so hopefully they'll have a new update that fixes this soon enough.

@MarioLover92 just FYI, as silly as it sounds, relying the download over and over did work for me. And it was MK8 as well.

As I've said in this topic, I started getting the 2123-1502 error last week, around June 3rd or so, a few days before System Update 12.0.3 even came out. So it was known/experienced by me at least before the System Update. I did contact Nintendo's support on Sunday to let them know I was getting this error and having trouble downloading. At the time, I had been trying to download the preload data for Game Builder Garage. I thought it was an issue related to Game Builder Garage only, but then I was unable to download a game update, as well. Nintendo had some kind of maintenance on June 3rd or 4th, and I wonder if it was related to that.

I tried finding info about Error 2123-1502 last week, but I couldn't find anything. It wasn't even listed on Nintendo's support page then (I tried doing a search for that Error Code on several different Nintendo sites like Nintendo in Japan, Nintendo of America, Nintendo Australia, etc., but nothing came up). So this does seem to be a new issue, but it preceded the update for me, at least.

I don't know if this will work for everyone but I went into my network settings and manually set my DNS to 8.8.8.8 (Google's primary DNS)

So
System settings > internet > internet settings > select your network > change settings > DNS settings
Set to manual
Enter 8.8.8.8

I tried this, also setting Automatic DNS to 8.8.4.4 - this does appear to be a fix , for some (and hopefully temporarily as Ninty needs to fix this asap) but it looks like you still have to download each game individually. I tried downloading games from my Japanese account to a Lite I bought today after applying this fix, and the first game looks like it's downloading fine, but the rest have blinking X's, so obviously not queued.

So any confirmation from Nintendo about this error? I still have the same problem with not being able to update/install stuff.

I hope this get fixed before the sale lol?

I had the same problem, can't download. The problem disappeared when I change to Dark Mode. Then try 2 times start download and happen.

Still having this issue. This is Day 3 of me having this. Seems like Nintendos servers from 1880 are still just as bad as always.

Great. I tried changing my DNS to what you recommend, and it does not work. Now when I try going into the Eshop I get error code 2811-1006 as well as 2123-1502. And after changing my DNS I get error code 2155-8006. JUST TO MUCH ERRORS

Still getting the error. Madder than a wet hen! I just spent 40 bucks and it's useless because nothing will download. Why'd they even put the update back up if it's not working? ūüė°

@pilot We currently don't know, but hopefully soon. Preferably before the inevitable E3 sale. I've been getting that error when attempting to download the Game Builder Garage demo. (I did spam "Continue" and after a number of tries, it worked.)

It happened to me a while back and I couldn't download a game. It happened two days ago when I tried to download ŇĆkami HD, but it fixed itself quite soon. Hopefully this becomes a fleeting issue.

I just tried again and still no luck. Spamming continue doesn't work for me either. I even attempted to download a really small game and nope instant fail. I've put in several different DNS codes too. It'll connect to the internet no problem but the eshop might as well be Miiverse at this point.

Well back to my trusty Wii U. Never had that problem with everybodys most fun to hate on console.
