    Hello everybody.
    I have a problem with my gamepad. When i turn on the console, it displays correct collours on TV but gamepad after pairing shows everything what should be white in pink. When I unplug the power cord from the console and turn gamepad on screen displays perfectly. Anyone have an idea what seems to be the problem?

    Mine sometimes does this on the TV when I am running it through my capture card. Normally, I just unplug the HDMI, reset the capture software, plug it back in, and retry. I've never had it happen on the gamepad though. It could be a different form of the same issue though. Maybe try to mess with your HDMI cord/port set-up? Try a different TV, if possible. Probably won't fix it, but it's worth a try.

    go to settings change hdmi to component cable. tv will go black cause you have no component cable plugged in. now turn wii u off and turn on again.

    I have this issue from the beginning. Unfortunately i got it as reward. The worst thing is that Nintendo dont have distributor in my country.

    from nintendo website:
    Check that the Wii U GamePad screen is not currently turned off by pressing any button other than the POWER Button.
    Press and hold the POWER Button down on the Wii U console until the Wii U console powers off. Power the Wii U console back on.
    If this does not work, unplug the AC adapter from the back of the Wii U console and wait 15 seconds, then plug the Wii U console back in and turn it on.
    Reset the Wii U GamePad:
    If the Wii U GamePad is currently turned off, press the power button once to turn it on.
    Press and hold down the Wii U GamePad power button until the Wii U GamePad turns off.
    Wait 15 seconds.
    Press the power button once to turn the Wii U GamePad on.

    Not to scare you... but this looks as if it are artifacts...

    Anyways. If you stay close to your Wii U does it still happen?

    i dont think so becouse tv displays correctly. Graphics card (BGA) is soldered to MB correctly.

    If you know anyone else with a Wii U, try pairing your pad with his system (and vice versa) this will at least prove whether it's the pad at fault or the system sending the pad bad info.

    If it's a hardware issue (which seems pretty likely) I'm afraid the only choice is to get it fixed/replaced :(
