Nintendo Switch Not Showing on TV: How to Fix It

If you’re a Nintendo Switch player, you may have experienced the frustration of your console not connecting to your TV or monitor. In this blog post, we’ll go over some fixes to help you troubleshoot this issue.

Firstly, you should check your dock. If it opens automatically when you insert your console, then it’s working fine. If the dock doesn’t work, you should contact the company or shop where you bought it for repair or replacement.

Another thing you can do is adjust your TV output settings. Go to Settings and then TV outputs. From here, you can change the TV resolution to match your TV’s capabilities. If your TV only supports 720p, change it to 720p and try again. If it still doesn’t work, try 480p. If this doesn’t work either, move on to the next fix.

Next, check the cables behind your dock. Ensure that the AC adapter is connected to the power cord and that the HDMI out is connected to your TV. You can also try using a different HDMI port or cable to see if the issue is with the cable. Nintendo Switch has been known to provide faulty HDMI cables, so this could be the culprit.

If none of these fixes work, you can try connecting your console to a different TV or monitor to see if it works there. If it doesn’t work on any TV or monitor, then it’s likely a problem with your Nintendo Switch itself.

Remember, always use HDMI port one for the best connectivity and lowest latency. We hope this guide has helped you fix your Nintendo Switch not showing on TV issue.
