My Wii U has suddenly decided that it doesn't want to connect to my gamepad nor display on my tv what am I supposed to do I've checked the wires, I've reset the console, I've unplugged the console nothing works.

Anyone got any suggestions otherwise I'm just gonna box this thing up

tried unplugging it an plugging it back in? mine tends to do that with the gamepad whenever the power cord gets removed. Just plugging it back in randomly fixes it.

My suggestion: Take this day to enjoy time with your family rather than being annoyed that your console doesn't work right.

Call Nintendo tomorrow. You'll live.

To soften my previous post, I've had Christmases in which both my Wii and Gamecube were malfunctioning. There was very little I could actually do, except call Nintendo about it the following day. In one case I was able to get my repairs gratis, in the other I had to pay for the repairs. In either case Nintendo was very good about both problems.

Does the Blue light repeatedly blink when you turn it on?

Did the whole family thing earlier in the day and there is no way in hell am calling Nintendo I have had this thing since launch and this is isn't the first time this has happened but it usually reconnects after I unplug it.

No


Then you're in luck. The system is booting. Likely something minor. Might have to sync the gamepad or try the Wii component (if you have one.)
