However, some people report that their Nintendo Switch consoles won't turn on.

My Switch will not turn on. I don't know if it's in sleep mode because the last thing it displayed was a dimmed controller arrangement screen over Super Mario Odyssey, because I had left it alone for a while after attaching the Joy-cons in docked mode, then I pulled the HDMI out of the TV (because of other unimportant details)... --- www.reddit.com

If your Nintendo Switch won't turn on, you can try the following methods. But before proceeding, you should make sure the console has sufficient power. In most cases, Nintendo Switch won't turn on, just because its power is used up.

If all the above methods don't work for you, you can try removing Nintendo Switch game card and Nintendo Switch SD card, putting them back into place, and then powering on the console. If this method also doesn't work, you'll most likely have to send your Switch in for repair.

You can start a repair request on Nintendo's website, where you'll need to provide your system's serial number, the details of your issue and your shipping information.

Note that the Switch comes with a one-year hardware warranty, so you may have to pay if your warranty is up. Also keep in mind that, while Nintendo claims to do its best to retain your save data during repairs, there's a chance it might get lost in the process.
