    Anyone had this error and was able to fix it ?

    If I press twice on the sync button on the console to sync my gamepad, I get : "An error has occured. Please turn off the Wii U console and try Again." With no error code.

    Pressing the sync button on the gamepad brings me the sync symbols on the gamepad (like it should).

    I tried rebooting and unplugging the Wii U and it is still the same.

    I can sync a wiimote no problem.

    I even replaced the MIC-B2 controller in the console (for an untested used one mind you).

    I just started having this same issue out of the blue. I can sync the gamepad to another Wii U (friends) just fine but I cannot get the card symbols to appear on my own. Same issue with the sync button. pressing it twice causes that error. I ordered a new wifi controller card for it..we'll see what happens.

    Can you sync a normal/ non-gamepad controller?

    Pretty odd... and should not occur with consoles...

    Well... at least you found out what was the issue.

    Hey hi. I have had one console today from my customer for a repair service and I am facing the exact problem

    Unfortunately I don't have another Wii u gamepad to test for ruling out the possibility of faulty devices. But one thing for sure ; the Wii remote connects without issues.

    So do u guys feel that Bluetooth board is working fine on the main console ? Would it just be the game pad only which is faulty ??

    Not too fast you!

    First of all reset the synced devices by holding the sync button on the wii u for 15 seconds and do same on every remotes EXCEPTED eGAMEPAD.

    Now boot up wii u and double press wih a delay of 5secs the sync button and try syncing gamepad.
