    have an issue with my wii u not turning on/flashing red light, tried googling it and all i get is the red light of death as results but i dont think that is my issue, basically sometimes when i turn my wii u off the red light starts to flash and the white light on on all the time, i understand the white light is supposed to mean that there is a disk in the drive but there isn't, when i go to turn the wii u back on if the red light is flashing i have to power cycle the system then i have to keep trying power button and power cycling it till it eventually starts, once it starts i can play it all day with no issues, the problem is getting it to start up
