    Hello Guys,
    my Wii U broke last week and its doing nothing except for having nice red light on the Power LED. If you want to power on the red light will disappear for less than a sceond.

    Because warranty voided a long time ago i disassembled my Wii U and found out that the ribbon cable which connects MB and drive is broken. There's no signal between some contacs. Could this be the reason for the total failure of my console?

    A BD was inserted and the white disc-light was activated the whole time.

    Thanks for help.
