    a few weeks ago my wii u gamepad screen broke, i can't see anything on it. This means i can't disable parental controls (i also can't get the code for the bypass). the touch screen (suprisingly) still works, only i cant see what i am doing, so i tought: maybe there is a homebrew app that allows me to mirror my gamepad screen to my pc, i couldn't find anything, so now i am here. if it exists, can someone send me a link? thanks

    EDIT: i am probably going to buy a replacement gamepad.

    if you have a wii mote you can press i think it's - or + on the gamepad and switch the gamepadscreen to the tv.you can easely replace the gamepadscreen its cheap and not that difficult to do if your a bit handy

    If you use a Wii mote you can switch screens so you can see on tv what's normally on your gamepadscreen a Wii u pro controller might work to. I think it should work.a gamepadscreen+digitizer+screwdriver=20/30€max

    Your sure if you use a Wii mote to de screens it doesn't show on tv?you can also use a friends gamepad and synchronise it to your system to goet the code

    Did a quick test and you where right when pressing 1 on the Wii mote and try to get to parental controls it doesn't work.it's been a while since a dit something like that.guess you have to buy a used one,get someone to repair it or use somebody's gamepad for a quick fix
