    I was moving around stuff in my front room today and my 5.3.2U Wii U 32 GB Deluxe Edition (Sweet Right?) Fell I plugged it back in and the tv is not showing me my screen. After further investigation i have reason to believe that the HDMI port is the problem. There seems to be a crack at the bottom of the port but EVERYTHING else seems to be fine. Any suggestions in how to fix?

    And the gamepad is still working fine? Otherwise the console could be completely broken.

    You'd probably have to replace the HDMI port or at least solder the contacts back on, I figure the socket probably got ripped away from the motherboard in a way that broke some of the solder connections.

    The gamepad is "Fully Operational"

    That actually doesn't sound that hard

    just skip fixing it and use a Wii component cable, it can output 1080p also. if you are worried about lack of 5.1, don't be as most 1st Party Wii U titles are in stereo.

    Nintendo will want at least 90$ to fix it if not more, assuming you send it in before you mod it.

    Is the component cable the same one that came with the original Wii?

    That won't fix the Wii nor is it a solution.
