A broken charging rail will cause an inability to connect directly to the Nintendo Switch console or an inability to charge the Joy-Con. This guide will show you how to replace the charging rail on the Left Joy-Con controller.

Before using this guide, check for potential bent pins on the charging rail that can be bent back. If possible, test if the Joy-Con can be charged from an external source or check if the problem is actually with the sensor rail on the Nintendo Switch console.
