Wii U HDMI Problem!

I've heard loads of people having the same problem but so far no answer!

Some wii U are coming with this problem that the T.V doesn't show ANY image at all , so you can't Sync the gamepad with the console since you can't see any symbols at the T.V . The console turns on normally the gamepad too , everything is correct , follow the instruction on the manual step by step ,you try different T.Vs different HDMI cable , try the AV cable but no success ..

So the final solution is to send it back to nintendo to get a new one...

But what if you want to try to fix it by your self?

Can someone please solve the mistery of the bricked wii U's?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This is an old question but this is an issue that a lot of people ask about but no one can provide the answer to. If it's not any of the wireless cards being bad, or loose/unplugged then It's commonly the HDMI IC chip. It's a known issue with the PS4's that as also shown up in the Wii U's. Change the chip(PN=MNB64718) and you should be back up and running.

Shown here, the red box, in this picture.

I agree with Skinner, we have replaced several of these chips. As long as the Wii u wasn't dropped while plugged in or the pins inside the port aren't bent it's probably the HDMI chip gone Bad or not connected to the board properly. Could also be one of the filters on the board by the chip.
