Nintendo Switch Service Centre Bolton

The most common question we are asked daily is

"Do you repair the Nintendo Switch Consoles, as nobody else will repair them" 

 Yes we do !

Are you looking to have your Nintendo Switch repaired locally or near to you?

If you are not local to us, we have courier options available to get your console to our premises and back to you, which are really cost effective.

Have you been told by another repair company that your Nintendo Switch is not repairable?

Console Wizard carry out all repairs to the superb Nintendo Switch console, we carry out repairs to the entire range

All repairs quickly and to Nintendo's manufacturing specifications, only using genuine Nintendo original replacement parts in all of our repairs.

Our workshop is fully equipped with the latest diagnostic and repair systems, to ensure a quick and reliable repair.

We carry out Nintendo Switch repairs to a greater depth than Nintendo themselves, as we carry out motherboard repairs if required.

This means that we repair your console and not exchange yours for a refurbished unit, with you not knowing the back ground history of the refurbshed unit that may be shipped back to you by Nintendo.

This also means that you would NOT lose all of your game save data held on your own console (Which could mean the loss of months of game play and purchases).

We carry out a lot of repairs which are failed repair attempts by other companies, were they may have damaged the motherboard attempting to change the Charger socket or are unable to repair the console's motherboard and then tell the customer that the console is not repairable.

We also carry a full stock of any item required, which means a quick repair as we don't have to order a replacement part required for any repair we may encounter.

This means you have total peace of mind that your Nintendo Switch has been repaired professionally and backed up by a three month warranty.

Most Common repairs carried out by our Service Centre

  • Not Charging - Damaged USB Charger Port

Nintendo Switch Damaged Port

This is normally caused when a Micro USB charging cable is inserted into the charging port (tablets and Samsung phones use a Micro USB cable).
The Nintendo Switch using a USB-C charging Lead, which is very different from a Micro USB charging cable.

This is a common mistake made by customers. This can damage just the charging socket itself or can also cause motherboard damage, meaning a more in depth repair is required. If you brought your Nintendo Switch console in for this repair and it was found that the motherboard was also damaged, an engineer would contact you to discuss the problem and let you know of any additional repair fees.

  • Cracked or Smashed LCD screen

This problem can either be as the example above where the LCD itself is damaged, but you can also have a perfect picture, but the touch screen itself is cracked or broken. Both are quickly repaired by Console Wizard.

  • No Picture - Charging Port looks Okay

  • Liquid Damage

Nintendo Switch Liquid damage

We are specialists in repairing liquid damaged devices.

Nintendo will not repair a liquid damaged device and if you sent yours to them for repair, it would just be returned back to you unrepaired.

We start by stripping down your Nintendo Switch and placing your consoles motherboard into our UltraSonic Cleaner. This removes any liquid, corrosion that may have started on the motherboard as a result of the liquid damaged.

Once the motherboard is fully cleaned, then our engineers will examine the motherboard and LCD cables etc for any corrosion or damage. 

Our engineers will examine the console and contact you with a repair price.

If we cannot repair your console, due to the liquid damage being to severe, then there would be a £20.00 liquid damage fee to cover the work carried out to fully clean the console internally of any signs of liquid damage and corrosion, prior to the repair investigation.
