    I've had my Wii U for almost 3 Months now and it has been working great up until 2 weeks ago.

    For the last two weeks I've had constant Disconnecting issues with the Gamepad. I would be in the middle of my game and I would lose connection and has been affecting my overall use with it. I've placed my WiiU by itself on my stand and it still keeps disconnecting.

    Does anyone go through the same issues that I'm going through?

    Also I've contacted Nintendo and ordered a Repair.

    My vWii has been modded and wanted to know If I should still go through with the Repair?

    Thanks. Just need some advice.

    Are they asking for the console or the Gamepad? If it's just the gamepad, your vWii is fine (whatever the hell that is).

    I've sent it into Nintendo, I had to send the WiiU console and Gamepad.

    Also I have tried to Resync it many times. I've tried all sorts of procedures.

    I am now getting the same issue, mind you I updated my firmware to 2.1.3e yesterday. Fired up the game in my room the same spot as before.
    Guess what the cutscenes in game were like that song by house of pain.


    Terrible
    Seems like I should have waited a few months for the hardware and stuff to flesh out the bugs etc

    I have recieved my Wii U back and the console seems to have been repaired. I have yet to check if my vWii is still hacked. I'm not even sure if they checked that part of the system.

    Modding your vWii does void your warranty. I never mentioned it and I believe they never bothered to go check.

    That's really good news. Makes me consider hacking mine but I am too chicken to void the warranty. Post again when you check if your sofmod has been altered. They probably didn't even check it.
