Gamepad is completely dead

Hi. My Wii U gamedpad is completely dead. I have tried to take out the battery for a few hours and tried to start it without result. The battery has power when I loaded it on the side and measured the voltage in it. Now I screwed apart the gamepad, but nothing is loose and I can not see that any circuit has burned. Is there a fuse in the gamepad that could have tripped? Where? I suspect otherwise there is a circuit board that has given up but which when the gamepad is completely dead? I do not want to spend money on a new one when I plan to buy nintendo switch later next year. Hope you can help me to solve the problem. Sincerely, Raoul

Thanks for the reply. My gamepad is completely dead, no lights or any lights. How do you mean wifi / bluetooth? Do you now where i can buy parts? the shipping is so expensive from ebay to Scandinavia. :)




Hi Raoul,

I am in a similar situation with a Gamepad, however in my case is quite different.

I replaced the LCD and touch screen and getting response from the touch screen and sounds.

In my case seems to be video related issues, in your case I recommend you to verify the wifi/bluetooth cards.

If any of those are not properly seated or damaged the remote will not power on.



Good luck and good repair.

More likely than not you're looking at a bad motherboard. If you press the Home button and the power button at the same time does the blue light turn on and then fade away shortly after?
