I have a Gamepad which won't charge. I have replaced the battery but it still wont work. However, i (idiotically) played around with the test pads below the battery port and I think I may have burnt out a fuse. I've looked at pictures of the motherboard and I can't find any fuses on it. So, are there any?

No idea about fuses, but you may have burned the charge controller. But the good news is, a replacement gamepad mainboard is only like $20. They are region locked though (Wii U can only sync to a same region gamepad mainboard), so be aware of that.

Alright, I'll open it up and look for any obvious fuses or anything, and if it doesn't work I'll replace the motherboard. Thanks.
