Christina, Looking at the photo, it appears that the FPC connector tab is missing. You can search for a replacement online, and if you are proficient at microsoldering you can change it yourself. Otherwise you could have a repair shop solder it on for you.
tastefulsky8133, iPhones have a very specific procedure for opening them, which includes disconnecting the battery flex before any other flex cable. Chances are very probable you may have shorted something inside the phone if you did not follow the routine. Not worry though, there is a fix available. If you are familiar with micro soldering, you could fix it yourself, if not, sending it into a capable phone repair shop that provides this service would be your best option. If on the outside chance it is not repairable, (extreme case), they should be able to retrieve any information you have on it.
Hi, This could be caused by any number of issues. The one that is most likely, the backlight fuse has been blown. You are able to check for this issue, by shining a light into the screen to see if the images are there and just not visible due to no backlight. If this is the issue, there are any number of repair shops that can handle this repair. Hope this helps.
I have had this occur in the past with screen replacements. Each time, the issue was at the connector. Under the scope, you could see the pins not connecting securely with the ribbon cable. Not sure that this may be the issue you’re having, but it would be worth checking.
If you’ve already replaced the capacitors, then check the pins in the game cartridge reader. Most commonly, the white screen issue will be caused by the pins in the cartridge slot being dirty or bent and not making good contact with the game cartridge. Shine a light in the game cartridge slot, and if needed clean with a flattened Q-tip and alcohol, but only push the Q-tip straight in and out, otherwise you risk bending the pins.
Jana, It sounds like the WIFI/bluetooth module is bad in the gamepad. They are available online and are relatively easy to install. There is a nice tutorial here on iFixit. Hope this helps, JK Wii U GamePad Bluetooth Replacement
Nate, Sounds like the battery is dead. If you’re able to play the controller with it plugged in, and the indicator shows it’s charging, I would put my money on a bad battery. I had the same issue with another controller. JK
Hi Floyd, Seems like you’ve tried everything I would suggest, but not to insult you, I am assuming that you made sure that the TV selector was set to the proper inputs? (HDMI TO HDMI, AV TO AV,…..) I have done the same thing, only to realize I hadn’t selected the correct input. I have repaired several Wii U consoles with this same issue, a couple were the HDMI chip, (available online) and several HDMI ports, but sad to say, nothing like what you are describing. Most always you can get the AV cables to work. One more question, when you connect the console using the HDMI cable, does it have sound? Thanks. J.K
