So here's a problem that I'm hoping you guys will be able to solve for me.
I was browsing the Internet on the Wii U when it crashed on me (approx. 11:15 BST). It's not the first time, but it was unfortunate. So I attempted to turn it off by holding down the power button on the GamePad, which turned the GamePad off, but not the system. No problem I thought, I'll just turn the system off at the plug.
When I did so, and attempted to reboot the system, I noted that the GamePad would not turn on. Again, not a problem because it was dying (flashing red), so I'll just charge it up, and proceeded to power on the Wii U itself. However, the Wii U booted up perfectly fine, yet the GamePad still did not turn on. As it was charging, I was also surprised to see that the LED indicating it is charging was not on. I have since removed the battery, changed the plug socket and held down the power button again, and re-synced the controller, but nothing has worked.
So what should I do? I should stress that this is not a problem with the Wii U, but the GamePad. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
