    Won't have anything to do with the Dock, won't charge, display on tv, just a flashing green light.
    Have found a USB c cable from something else that will charge it but even that's hit and miss.
    Tried the official charger direct into the switch and nothing, but will charge my phone so its definately working.
    Think somethings come loose inside. Had it 14 months.
    Anyone know any fix?

    I wouldn’t open it, I would send it in to Nintendo. It says on the website they will sometimes repair even if out of warranty. I’m sure with it being only 2 months out of warranty they would fix it as a good will. If not I’m sure you could claim under the new law that replaces the sales of goods act, look it up!
