So I just replaced the wifi chip in the gamepad to try and fix the issue but it is still going on.

When I push the sync button on the console it tells me to push the sync button on the gamepad. When I do this I see the screen on the gamepad where it is ready for the 4 symbols.

But nothing shows up on the TV. So per the directions on the gamepad screen I push the sync button on the console again. Every time I hit the sync button on the console again it gives and error that I must turn it all off and try again.

I have tired all kinds of combinations and no matter what I end up on this screen and end up turning the power off.

Everything I have found so far about this issue says that just changing the chip in the gamepad but this didn't work.

I need some help on this issue please.

I had to buy this part and install in on the console and now all is good.

Bluetooth Wireless Module Chip for Wii U Main Console Board CHIP IC 2878D -WINA2

Got the part used on eBay for under 10 dollars and now the Wii U is working just fine.
