    Hi ive just been given a Wii U but it has a problem with the screen on the Game pad

    The touchscreen still works but cannot see anything to access the system menus

    Anyone had a similar problem or any ideas of fixing it



    Thanks

    Cheers for the reply

    So i took it apart took the lcd ribbon out and put it back in to see if it made a difference

    I dont know if the lcd ribbon connectors are corroded see pic

    It did now i dont get anything on it fxxk

    When i turn the pad on it goes blue and it will power on the wii u but then goes orange straight away while plugged in

    Nothing on the screen its blank also when charging it stays orange even when ive unplugged it

    Any ideas?

    Cheers
