    Hi, I used haxchi and cbhc, and everything was going right. I installed kind of 30 games, dindnt install ds virtual consoles or messed with important files, nor messed with haxchi. I was playing Super Mario 3D world with the gamepad, and tried to pair a pirate wiimote to play with my friend. the control wasnt pairing, so I went angry and broke the pirate wiimote. before this, I was trying so many times to pair the wiimote, and sometimes it was asking to pair the gamepad. So, I continued playing for about 20 minutes, and I powered off the console. This happened yesterday. Today, when I was trying to power on the wii u, I received the message ~could not connect to the wii u console~, and on my tv appears ~no signal~. I tried removing the battery of the console, but nothing happened. The blue light is keeping on, and I am hearing a noise from the disc unit, but my external usb hd doesnt power up too. Can someone suggest me a solution? Could this be a power shortage by the ac adapter? Also, I am from Brazil, so no chance to send it to Nintendo. Thanks.

    It's not bricked. If you unplug the USB and boot what do you see? Wii U system menu or something else?

    Unplug your Wii U for 5 minutes then plug it back.
    Should forget last settings and boot directly to Wii U menu.
    (If it asks you to pair it, pair it. Wii U is dumb and needs help)

    Wait, you didn't pull out battery from Wii U itself? Jesus christ, people don't do it :d
    You can pull out from Gamepad but not from Wii U itself. Implying if it even has one.

    Tried, nothing happens, only the blue Led stay steady on, but no image. I AM thinking about a power shortage in the AC adapter.

    I am talking about that side battery with a screw. Also, saw a guy in YouTube doing this and reviving his console. Obviously, not my case.

    In this vĂ­deo on YouTube happened the same as happened to me. Note the Led stay blue, not blinking. I AM quite convinced it could be the adapter. Or do you think it is dead forever.

    Well, Just a little fun update. I'm LOLing so much. I was quite convinced that my Wii U was dead, and I did let it on my shelf. I bought another unit, this time the BASIC Edition, firm 5.5.1. I was going to break my "bricked" Wii U. Today, I thought, why don't I try testing it again before my hammer start singing? And Booooom, the Wii U started. Now I have 2 units completely operational, one basic in its original form, and one hacked deluxe. Hahahhahahahahah.
