    Question Wii U Gamepad Keeps Losing Signal After Console's Main Power is Cut

    I have an on-going problem with my Wii U and the Gamepad. It's relatively easy to fix - but it isn't the safest method.

    You see, whenever I need to pull the plug out of my Wii U console (like when there's an electrical storm, or I'm moving it to a different area) - and plug it back in - the connection between the console and the Gamepad gets frizzy. Basically, it starts getting choppy, and the Gamepad sometimes loses complete connection with the console even when it's right next to it.

    The only method I've found of fixing this is to pull the power out of the Wii U console when the system is on, plug it back in and restart the system. It fixes the issue; the connection between the console and Gamepad works just fine - but I'm sure that if I keep abruptly cutting the power on the system without switching it off - eventually it will fizzle out.

    Has anyone found a more safer method of fixing this?

    There's no way of keeping the gamepad display if the Wii U is off.

    Is it unsafe? I've pulled the power cord out of my wii u a lot. But it still works fine.
