Hey guys! Today when going to play my Wii U, I found out the battery in my gamepad was drained. So, I went to plug my charger into it, and found myself in some trouble. The charging light did not appear, and the gamepad would not even turn on, even when I turned on my Wii U from the console. I took my charger and the gamepad to multiple different outlets around my house, and still nothing changed. I'm not quite sure what to do. I don't really want to go check the battery (not quite sure if that voids the warrenty) so I'm hoping your expertise will help me in this situation. Thanks!
Don't worry, it won't void the warranty, so try removing and then reinsert the GamePad battery and that might reset it and allow the GamePad to charge again.
But if not, then you might have to give a call to Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am ~ 7 pm Pacific, everyday) Customer Service number, and see if there is anything else that might help correct this, or if still no luck unfortunately have to discuss repair options, sorry.
