    Hello, I recently purchased a used Wii U. The seller did not inform me, but the SD card reader is damaged. During the unlock process, I tried in every way to make the console read the card, but in the end, my suspicion was true and the problem really is the card reader.

    After searching, I found the spare part for a very low price. But I have not found anywhere a specific guide to soldering the Wii U SD slot.

    Is it the same soldering process as an ordinary SD reader? Does it require any special care?

    This video was the most specific and well filmed that I found:



    Following his footsteps, will that be how I solve my problem?

    Sorry for my bad english

    Well, I opened the console and removed the metal cover from the card reader. Everything seemed normal, only two connectors were looking "crooked", I picked up a needle and gently adjusted their direction, but nothing changed. The console recognizes the card but does not read it.

    I already formatted in fat32 in 32 and 64. I have two cards, a 2gb SD that came in my 3DS and a 16gb HC microsd. Both recognize on the computer, both give the same error in the console.

    I already bought a replacement part, but would anyone have any other hypothesis of what could be the problem?
