“When the temperature of the main unit gets too high, it can automatically hibernate to protect the device. When playing in TV mode, place the Nintendo Switch Dock in a place where heat does not accumulate.”
“If there are foreign objects or dust on the intake and exhaust vents of the main unit, use a vacuum cleaner to remove them. For your own safety, do not disassemble the main unit.”
