“Nothing is inserted into the game card slot” error message
This error can occur when if you have inserted a game cartridge in your console, but it does not load, so to solve it you will need:
- Turn off your Nintendo Switch and then extract the video game cartridge from it
- Now, reinsert the cartridge into your console and turn on your Nintendo Switch and check if the error has been fixed
If this doesn’t work you can try updating the Nintendo Switch to the latest firmware version that is available at the time. Or you can check if the problem lies in the cartridge, so if possible, try it on another Nintendo Switch console to see if the same thing happens or try other video game cartridges on your console .
If these do load correctly, it may be that the cartridge that marked the error is damaged or dirty and that is why it does not load on your Nintendo Switch.
