    A storm hit last week and ruined my TV and some of my consoles. The Wii U didn't power on but I got a new power supply and now it works through the Wiipad but I've tried multiple HDMI cords and multiple TVs and it says no signal. Wondering if there's anyone that can repair that?

    In theory it would be fairly simple to repair if it is only the HDMI port as they're just soldered to the PCB by 3 joints. So it's just a case of someone desoldering the 3 joints, removing the port and attaching a new one and soldering the contacts. It would take no longer than 10 mins for someone with basic soldering skills. However, if it isn't the port and something else is wrong, you may need a whole new board.
