Does the screen on your Nintendo Switch look orange and won’t turn off? Here’s a quick look at this problem.
Are you having trouble with your Nintendo Switch showing a solid orange screen that won’t go away? This problem can happen when the Switch’s internet connection is bad or when the WiFi chip is broken. Here is a short list of things you can try to fix this problem on your own before calling Nintendo.
Keep the POWER button pressed down for 12 seconds.
The Switch screen should go dark and stay dark.
To turn on the Switch, press the power button again.
The problem should be fixed.
If the Nintendo Switch still has the orange screen after you finish this step, the hardware may be broken. The internal parts of the Nintendo Switch can sometimes be hurt by water or shocks, causing it to show an orange or blue screen. If your console is still under warranty, Nintendo makes it easy to start an RMA online.
The solid color problem on your Switch isn’t likely to happen, but if it does, it’s usually easy to fix. Most of the time, the best way to fix the problem is to restart the console. But sometimes the problem is with the hardware, in which case Nintendo needs to step in. If you’ve tried to restart the console more than once and it always comes back on with a solid screen, it might be time to call Nintendo.
What if the orange screen on the Switch keeps coming back?
This problem could be caused by a bad internet connection because the Switch keeps trying to connect to the same WiFi access point. When the console can’t make a stable connection, it may have trouble and show what looks like a solid color. If this happens often enough, you may need to replace your router or modem to fix your internet connection.
