Help with kiosk/demo switch consoles “could not start the software”


Recommended Posts

Member · Posted

I picked up 11 broken switch demo/kiosk consoles of varying models. 2 have power issues, but the rest all have software issues. Hoping someone can point me in a direction on how I could get these units back to kiosk/demo mode… or any real info. There doesn’t seem to be much on these- especially the OLED ones.

If you enter recovery mode and factory reset it, if it had special software it may revert back to that but in all probability it will just return it to a normal switch and nothing special. I personally don’t have any experience with them though so I wouldn’t even know if recovery mode was possible on them.

I’m not sure- from what I gather they may have reset as part of maybe a recycling center/disposal policy. This results in the error that is given.

recovery mode allows me to update- but it still shows the same error after.
