What causes the Wii U Gamepad charging or docking port fault?
The main reason we see Wii U Gamepad with port faults coming in are caused by accidental damage. We have found foreign objects inside the port and ports that have been bent by being jolted whilst plugged into the cable.
Overtime, the plugging and unplugging of the plugs can cause the metal pins to stop making a proper contact and then the device will not take charge.
How do we repair the Wii U Gamepad?
The first thing we do before any repair is test the console to confirm the fault. We then proceed to open the Gamepad and gain access to the internals. We clean out any dust and grime as we go.
We inspect the internal parts to see where the fault lies. You can normally tell by a visual inspection if the port is damaged from the socket side or you can see if the solder connections have been lifted from the logic board.
We will then de-solder the old port and solder a new one down. We will test the connections and the integrity of the port before reassembling the Wii U Gamepad and then it is passed down to the testing bench.
