Game stuck in wii u

I started playing new super Mario bros u yesterday and after playing for a few minutes, the game froze. It wouldn't turn off by the controller or system power button so I unplugged it. After plugging it back in, the system will not turn back on (led blue light comes on for a second, it blinks, then goes red). Called nintendo and I have to send it in. They say it'll only take about 5 days once they get the system to get it back to me. Just another wii u problem. But at least Mario looked cool in hd for 3 minutes.

I had Black Ops 2 freeze on me like that; had to unplug the system. When I initially plugged it back in, it lit up blue for a second then went dark. But then I realized the next time I plugged it back in that I accidentally flipped the switch on the surge protector.

So I'm not 100% sure what happened, or why it even lit up at all if I had flipped that switch? When I flipped it back the system powered up fine. I then went through three more hours of continuous use after that with no issues.

I had to unplug the system when Assassin's Creed III froze on me like that too. Plugged it back in and it started back up just fine.
