From France comes the first case of “blue screen of death” on Nintendo Switch: the Reddit user SupportDevil has unfortunately came across a Black Screen of Death after a few hours of play, a problem that has made its console unusable.


Our deepest condolences goes to the user for which we will talk about today. After the Red Ring of Death and the Yellow Led of Death, there is also the Blue Screen of Death which adds to the long list of signs that confirm the death of our consoles.

A player shared a picture showing that his Nintendo Switch displayed a Blue Screen of Death. He was playing the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, when the screen became white and the console then made a strange noise. On re-booting his console, he had this blue screen.

The user of the website Reddit who is known by the nickname SupportDevil took an iconic photo as well as devastating: the pad of Nintendo Switch is completely blocked, with a blue screen without giving any sign of life.

The user has told his experience with these words: “Played a bit BotW then the Screen went white and the Switch got very noisy then i restarted the Console and now only Blue Screen of Death.”

SupportDevil has failed in any way to properly restart his Nintendo Switch, the Joy-Con are in fact completely inanimate and the blue screen does not allow to perform any operation. Nintendo has been expressed about the problem, that does not seem to be too widespread, the one of SupportDevil is currently the only known evidence so far yet.
