    • Insert a spudger underneath the shield plate along the edge of the device.

    • Pry up to lift the shield plate and remove it from the device.

    • You may feel a bit of resistance. This is normal, since the shield plate is slightly bonded to the heat sink with thermal paste.

    • A thick pink thermal compound bridges the gap between the shield plate and the copper heat sink underneath. This helps prevent the Switch from overheating.

    • You can reuse the pink thermal compound if you're careful. Keep the compound clean and make sure it makes solid contact between the heat sink and the shield during reassembly.

    • If you need to replace it, refer to our thermal paste guide to remove the old thermal compound and replace it with an appropriate compound, such as K5 Pro, during reassembly.

    • Carefully peel the two foam pieces stuck over both the heatsink and the fan away from the fan.

    • The foam only needs to be peeled back enough to clear the fan.

    • The foam is really delicate and tears easily. Use the following technique to peel the foam:

    • Insert the point of a spudger underneath the part of the foam that isn't stuck against anything,

    • Press the top of the foam with your finger to hold it in place.

    • Roll the spudger tip underneath the foam all the way to the other end of the foam to release it.

    • Use a spudger or your fingers to lift the heatsink up and off the motherboard to remove it.

    • You may feel a bit of resistance. This is normal, since the heat sink is slightly bonded to the CPU with thermal paste.

    • Clean off the old thermal paste from the heat sink and CPU using high-concentration (90% or higher) isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth. Apply new thermal paste to the CPU before reassembly.

    • Apply thermal paste to all surfaces that had thermal paste applied previously. This includes between the heatpipe and aluminum shield, which the Switch uses as additional heatsinking.

Sonuç

Compare your new replacement part to the original part. You may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

If your new digitizer doesn’t work properly after you boot up the device, turn it back off and disconnect and reconnect the battery connector.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

Are Digitizers from original models (HAC-001) and revision models (HAC-001-(01)) compatible?

I don’t mean switch lite but the revision with the longer lasting battery.

GBG HNM - Yanıt

Yes, the digitizer is compatible with both models!

Craig Lloyd -

The ribbon cable for the digitizer is too short and cannot plug in to the connecter on the game card reader. Any ideas what the issue could be? im using a custom housing for it

Daniel - Yanıt

there should be a slit on the front housing where the ribbon cable goes straight through to the back. pay attention at where it comes out of on step 39

Ricardo Ortega -

Ive tried replacing the digitizer twice, both were successful but when i took the first one off to replace it i snagged the digitizer cord and figured nothing of it as new digitizers have new cables. But upon implementing a new digitizer and reassembling there was ghost touching (input as if someone was using the touch screen when no one was touching it) the digitizers i previously got were from a sketchy amazon company and both suffered from ghost touching. Was it caused by me snagging the cord? I didnt tear the original cord and didnt yank it hard enough to cause any damage but i have trouble blaming it on the sketchy digitizers as they were both scratched and such but both did it. Seemed too coincidental to be two bad digitizers. Anyone have any thoughts?
