Wii U GamePad buttons and touch screen not responding

My Wii U gamepad has been experiencing glitches with the buttons and touch screen. Only the R&L and ZR and ZL buttons are working. I tried to restart, neturalize the control sticks, and re-sync the console but nothing worked :(

The gamepad was fully-charged, cleaned and has no crack or any sort of damage done to it.

I haven't used it for over 5 months and I placed in at a safe location with nothing touching it.

I purchased my Wii U from Target in 2012.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

While I'm not an expert on the Wii U my first suggestion would be to unhook and reconnect the battery. This is easily done with a 00 Phillips screwdriver. The battery compartment is on the back of the gamepad and only has two screws if I remember correctly.
