  1. This update somehow messed up the dock signal to TV. Dock light won’t light or show image on TV. Was working fine before update. Now I’m limited to handheld or table top mode. Called Nintendo for help. After trouble shooting failed was told I had to send both system and dock for repair and pay for repair…I regret updating system… Anyone else having this problem?

    1. Hey man, I had the same problem, but it was easily resolved. All I had to do was take the switch out of the dock, hold the power button and select power options > shut down. Then, while it was off, I put it back in the dock and it showed only the battery symbol (as it should) and when I switched it back on with the controls, it connected to my pc screen. Try it, I hope it works for you too!
