Nintendo Switch does not respond - Perform soft reset

If you have the problem with your Nintendo switch that this does not respond and has "hung up", then you usually only have one option: The restart. This can be carried out by a so-called soft reset. We will explain to you the following procedure:

  1. To perform a soft reset on the Nintendo Switch, please press the power on / off button for about 15 seconds.
  2. Release the button, then press the Power On/ Off button again.
  3. The reboot is now carried out and the Nintendo switch should work again as usual.

Now you know what to do when the Nintendo Switch console is no longer responsive to controller input and can no longer be operated. Have fun playing!
