    How did you "play around with" the switch hacks? Which hacks did you use, in what order. What are all of the things you did to lead to this error?

    this sounds like specific FW bug. What FW do you have?

    I noticed that my Switch was at 33% after it crashed while playing around with Arch Linux too and wouldn't turn on anymore until I had it on the Dock and turned it on there.
    I think that the Switch OS has some internal calibration where it doesn't expect anything else draining the battery and gets confused after it did so, however it may correct itself after a few tries.

    I've heard entering and exiting recovery mode (not RCM, but the switch recovery mode) can fix some battery issues (maybe resets the calibration). Maybe try that?

    Also I seen a video of a guy removing the nand chip, after he puts it in the console doesnt turn ON, you need to remove the battery connector and put it back again which probably resets its state which might work for some bricks too no idea...

    Anyway after you fix it, don't forget to re-calibrate the battery though I don't remember the exact process, its just so that Switch can report the right value.

    Did you still have warranty ? Or did you use a different charger besides nintendo one?

    I'd let the battery drain out then do a recharge while the switch is off

    Yeah, let the console shutdown, then completely turn it off and charge it like overnight or for like 6 hours if it still reports wrong battery do the same again and see if it fixes it...

    I've had this problem when I first got my switch. It's a general calibration error that is easily resolved by doing what guily6669 recommended, if it is indeed the same issue I've had. The switch should turn itself on at 80%

    Also, make sure you do not have joycons attached during this process, especially if R is grounded for RCM

    Yeah I had the same too on my brand new Switch, I fully charged it then completely turned off by pressing power button for a few seconds until it shut down, in the next day it already stated 97%... but after like 2 charges it seem fixed, I'm on like 4th or 5th charge as I dont use it for weeks, but last time I turned it on a few days ago it still had 100%...

    Why did you edit all your posts to just say Help? This is a pretty pointless thread now.
