This error can occur when you've inserted a game cartridge into your console, but it won't load, so to fix it you'll need:

  1. Turn off your Nintendo Switch and then extract the video game cartridge from it
  2. Now insert the cartridge back into your console and turn on your Nintendo Switch and check if the error is fixed

If it doesn't work, you can try update Nintendo Switch to the latest firmware version available at the moment. Or you can check if the problem lies with the cartridge, then if possible, try it on another Nintendo Switch console to see if the same thing happens or try other cartridges for video games on your console.
