Is your Nintendo Switch experiencing error code 2162-0002? Has your Switch displayed this error code and won’t power on? In this article we’ll discuss the causes of this issue as well as how to fix it.
- Using non original chargers
The charing system of the Nintendo Switch is complex and should not be used with any 3rd party chargers. Use of these chargers can results in damage to the M92T36 charge control IC.
2. Using damaged charging cables
Charging cables with any sort of damage should never be used! Damaged cables can cause short circuits and damage various components inside your Switch.

Care should always be taken when putting in the cable to your console. Being too rough can result in damage to the charge port which can cause this error.
