    Wii U gamepad not working

    When I turn on my Wii U, I get the marketplace/group thing on my TV, and the games/apps on my gamepad. However, the only buttons that work on my gamepad are the R and L buttons and the X button. I am not able to start games or any apps. I don't know what is wrong, but my gamepad just doesn't work anymore.

    Recalibrate the L Stick and R Stick on the Wii U GamePad to a neutral position.

    Make sure there aren't any other buttons being pressed at the same time.

    Reset the Wii U GamePad by holding down the POWER button for 5 or more seconds, and then pressing it once to turn the Wii U GamePad back on.

    Clean the buttons.

    If you are using a screen protector, remove it.

    Check around the edges of the Wii U GamePad for any debris that may have lodged itself between the screen and the housing.
    If debris is found, gently remove the debris. Do not use any sharp or hard objects to try and remove.

    If the issue persists, the Wii U GamePad will need to be repaired.

    If all else fails, call Nintendo's tech support.
