    Hi,
    My WiiU pad was pretty much toast a while after I had the unit. I had modded my vWii and after I called Nintendo they requested to send the console and the Pad for troubleshooting. I deleted the Homebrew Channel and sent both pieces in.

    They came back and told me that the pad cannot be changed due that the unit has been tampered with.

    What to do next???

    The problem with the pad is that it does not connect unless I'm less than 1mtr away from the WiiU

    Thanks

    Warranty repair rejection due to soft mod?

    This is the first time I have heard of Nintendo doing this for wii u. I guess they started checking for that.

    My warranty isn't up till march, glad I haven't modded mine yet.

    If the problem is related to the mod, which it probably is not, than an official software update may correct it. I think others have had that experience.
