Joycon help !!!


New Member
Good evening, im in dire need of some expert help.

My daughters right joycon just won't connect with her switch. It works as a standalone or in the hand held controller, it's looks to connect (little pulse thing when you slide it on to the console) and works to navigate menus but the moment you go to a game it wants to configure as a handheld and it won't attach.

I've disconnected, re paired but nothing works. I've basically tried everything I've read online so far but nothing has worked (most don't seem to pulse when slotted into the console)

Please help

Anybody able to assist please

Well, I don't know what to tell you, then. Because that's basically the only way to get your Joy Cons repaired or replaced...
