I'm trying to find a name for this thing that Google cant understand.?

It's a green flat board looking thing that goes into devices like remotes, game controllers, computers, etc to make them work. And after that Im trying to find out how to find if there is any damage done to them physically. Whether it be water damage or something cut. I'm trying to look into a Joy-con and I may just get a replacement part if its just the part that's the problem but if its just green part thing being broken I may just buy a whole new joy-con. Help? [Pic incase I'm not specific enough.

    first a circuit board. second you shouldn’t have opened the joycon. you probably won’t be able to fix it. you should have sent it to nintendo, they would have fixed it.

    It's called a Printed Circuit Board (PCB). It has circuits printed on it. Those are the silver or gold threads that seem to be part of the green board. It also has components attached to it. These are the functional machinery which take advantage of the printed circuitry to talk to each other.

    The board can be analyzed for damage and then repaired, but it takes certain equipment and a skill set most people don't have. Easier to pitch it and buy another.

    If you do discard it, please take it to an electronics recycling center. These boards have many toxic materials in them that do the environment no good.

    you might try this,

    use a large magnifier to look at each solder point,use a pointy poker to nudge each solder joint a bit,if you see cracks,or a loose lifted off 2-3 point tiny chip or resistor wiggles loose,use a small soldering iron ( a pointy one)

    to heat the joint,then touch the solder wire to float a wee bit of new material onto the board.

    if you are not inclined to do all this, get a new control your pic is pretty fuzzy

    That is called a circuit board, and is DEVICE SPECIFIC. It will cost you less to replace the ENTIRE device than to replace the board. If you don't know what it is, you are NOWHERE NEAR qualified to repair it, even with detailed instructions.

    PCB (Printed Circuit Board). Not worth the hassle of trying to find the fault. Best idea is to replace the complete control.

    Sometimes capacitors fail. It looks like there is one on the far right. Try cutting one of the capacitor leads. You have nothing to lose. You can always solder the lead back if necessary. Are you sure the battery is good?

    Printed circuit board. Other than obvious physical damage you can't figure out the problem without specific knowledge of electronics and by using some specific pieces of equipment.

    Not user serviceable from the looks of it. You will need a new remote control.
