    Hey everybody, I'm having a weird issue with the gamepad that came with my Wii U. It's worked fine until about a month ago, and now all of a sudden there is no response when I click the left thumbstick. I first noticed this in Breath of the Wild when I wasn't able to get Link to crouch, but it's happening in every game. Strangely enough, if I press the TV button to get the TV remote to pop up on the gamepad screen, and then press it again to go back to the game, the game behaves as if I clicked the left thumbstick. Has anybody else experienced this or know of any way it could be fixed?

    Maybe you remapped the buttons?
    Try going to controller options and going to button remap. Will it let you change it?
