Time to get a PS4 bro
>>
It's not like there was anything to play anyways. You should have gotten a PS4.
>>
It's alright when Nintendo does it.
>>
>>322524229
Some faulty shit with the power cable I think. Try unplugging it from the outlet and the console both and then reattaching it. Atleast it worked for my Wii twice.
>>
You actually can get replacement gamepads.

It thought it was the dudebro normie console

>>322524646
Tried that. Just left the cord laying on the floor for an hour before trying again. Still nothing.

>>322524850
How much does that cost? I spent half a year saving up for this shit, I really can't afford another lemon.

That's the Xbone

>>322525008
Then how do you do it queer?
>>
>>322524229
check the battery on the gamepad
>>
Then what's the Wii U
>>
>>322525156
Ah... not cheap, apparently. Get in touch with technical support if you have to.
>>
>>322525235
You hold it a both sides and pull in down over your head like a sock

This same thing happened to me 6 months after I got mine. See if you can still warranty it through Nintendo; it'll take a while but fuck it.

Now, with that being said, 90% of the time when a gamepad is unresponsive like that, the battery pack inside is dead. 3 days shipping, and like $15.
>>
>>322525116
that's the xbox none anon
>>
OP you're fine, this exact thing happened to me when I replaced a broken LCD screen on the gamepad. The battery is most likely malfunctioning for some reason.

To fix it just unscrew the back cover and disconnect/reconnect the battery a couple of times. If it still doesn't work the battery might be dead, you can get a replacement battery for chump change.

Repairing a Wiiu gamepad is way, way cheaper than buying a new one.

Reminder that these people always complain about PCfags showing up to threads "uninvited" and starting shit.
>>
>>322525249
I would, but Nintendo insisted on using these tiny-ass little screws instead of anything normal. The next thing I'm going to do is find an eyeglass repair kit so I can take it apart, then try a new charging cable, then hang myself if it's anything more major.
>>
>>322525669
I see it far more from consolebabbies. Remember the whole Steam debacle? Every other post was "HURR PC MASTER RACE" while forgetting how many times PSN had its shit hacked.

You don't have any screw driver kits or anything around your house? It's a size 0 by the way, just so you get the right one if you do end up needing to buy it.
>>
>>322525580
>>322525381
Make up your mind.
>>
Your power outlet is faulty.

It's ok. Just try another outlet.

I live in Kansas. I'm sure it's a common inconveniences in states that get lots of snow this time of year.
>>
>>322525116
It is, but 4chan PS4 memers pretend it isn't so they can say they have no flaws.

Anyways, OP, try and get a new battery pack before going crazy.

>>322525717
Buy a small ass screwdriver then. Much cheaper than a whole new Gamepad.
>>
>>322524229
Call Nintendo. Did you set up a NNID? They should be able to verify your consoles serial number if it's linked to your account and see that it is still under warranty.
>>
>>322525914
That's because there is more.

No that's the ps4. All normies listened to gamespot

Why would anybody want a ps4? It doesn't have amiibo party or #FE

Thank you for all the advice anons, I'm feeling a bit better knowing that it might just be the battery. If this thread's still up, I'll confirm whether or not everything works out after I get some new screwdrivers.
>>
>>322524229
Did you buy it online?
If not you can go to your bank and get a statement that says when you paid for it and bring it to the store.
