Why Sell My Nintendo Switch?

Devices like the Nintendo Switch often come with some huge defects and glitches. The Switch is made up of three parts, two controllers and an LCD touchscreen that can be ‘switched’ with your larger TV screen. This game console configuration is riddled with issues that can’t, unfortunately, can’t be fixed. It might be better to sell your Switch in favor of a better game console than deal with these bugs.

Five Reasons to Sell

1. Scratched Screen

The first immediate design issue gamers noticed is that every time players slide the Switch Tablet into the Switch Dock, you will inevitably scratch the screen. The docking station is made of cheap plastic that has no fiber lining. Each time you slide the two pieces together, your screen scratches more and more. You can slide a makeshift fiber cloth to keep the screen from making contact with the plastic inlay, but it will wiggle out of place.

2. Dead Pixels

Another issue with the screen are the black spaces on the LCD screen where the pixels are dead or stuck. Nintendo issued a statement urging Switch users to not consider this a defect, stating a “small number of stuck or dead pixels are a characteristic of LCD screens.” You can try and see if the retailer will let you swap your Switch, but you also run the risk of getting another Switch console with the same issue.

3. Display Issues

Yet another issue with many of the Switch’s display screen is that because of a loose internal connector, the first few minutes of gameplay a Switch’s display screen will show random colors and lines. This is because many devices’ screen ribbons are halfway plugged in. Short of opening the Switch up yourself for tinkering there’s nothing much you can do about this.

4. Controller Strap Malfunction

The Switch comes with two controllers and users need to insert the controller straps up themselves. Often, gamers would insert the wrong strap into the controller rendering the top buttons useless. Meaning, if you put the right strap into the left controller, your A-Button is not going to work. You can fix this by taking the strap out, but it’s tougher than it sounds.

5. Loose-Fitting Controllers

Many Switch users are coming home to plug their Switch in only to find out their controllers are wobbly when plugged into the LCD screen. This is a pain when you’re trying to play games! Without a snug fit, your controllers will wobble and it’s quite aggravating for the game-play experience.

Most of the issues are design flaws which stem from the Nintendo Switch being made with cheap plastic parts. You can opt to sell your Switch on PawnGuru to get a better game console. Or, just keep the money and head for the hills!
