    I used a small blade tip to life up on the black squares that covered the screw holes. Replacing them after.. I skipped that as it seemed impossible they would even stick back down.

    Do not pull by the wires! If you do, you better be pretty good at soldering.

    I agree. A circle over the plug would have been better as the picture looks like you just pull on the wires lol.

    • Remove the white flex cable with the tweezers.

    Attention! You have to flip up gently the small plastic cap on top of the ribbon connector. Do not try to slide the plastic cap horizontally. This method holds for all ribbon connectors.

    Why is it necessary? The white flex cable doesn’t seem to block the way to the Bluetooth unit.

    It is a easy step and makes dealing with everything else a little easier.

    • With your fingers, lift and remove bluetooth board.

    • Remove the board carefully as there are still two wires attached.

    These little boards (Bluetooth and NFC) have a small connector but also have double sided tape holding them down. So you may need to apply more force than expected to remove these due to the tape.

    • Disconnect the black and white wires off of the back of the bluetooth module.

    One important thing to note here is how the black and white wires are routed to the board. You should take a picture since if you do not route these the same way, the wires can interfere with the button or get trapped when you assemble the case back possible blocking a screw hole.

I just completed this repair on our Game Pad, and it worked perfectly!

There were two things that I noted that may be of use to anyone else completing this repair. First, the 9mm screws on the back may be located under small stickers used to conceal the screw holes. If you take them up carefully with a knife or other flat blade, you can reuse them if desired. Second, I didn’t see the need to remove the white ribbon cable in step #6. I successfully completed the repair without that step.

First, note that the 9mm screws holding the back on may be located under small black stickers used to hide the screw holes. If you take them up carefully with a knife or other flat blade, you should be able to reuse them if you desire. Second, I didn’t see a need to remove the white ribbon cable in Step #6. I successfully completed the repair without that step.

Cheers!

This fix worked perfectly - our Wii U was virtually unusable because of the severely limited range of the gamepad. My kids are thrilled that they can comfortably play again!

Bill Jones - Contestar

Worked perfectly, gamepad only worked within 2 ft of the console and now works 15ft away.

Instructions were concise, well illustrated and easy to complete.

Thanks a lot!

I went to do this - already have another chip - but I discovered there are no wires attached! The white and black wires shown are not in my gamepad at all. I’m amazed I can connect in the first place. Any idea how I can replace the wires that attach to the chip? Or work around it?
