Sound won't come out of my Wii U
« on: October 11, 2018, 07:15:41 PM »
I don't have any sound coming out of my speakers, but comes out perfectly on a set of headphones. How do I fix it?

It's your speaker settings or a faulty HDMI cable. Have you tried using other speakers?

It is the speakers in the gamepad that won't work.

Probably a hardware issue then, I suppose. Was it always like this or did it happen recently?

It happened recently, my Wii U is old, I bought it in 2014.

Yeah, sounds like a hardware failure. Sorry about that, looks like the only solution to that is sending it in for repair or getting a new one.

The former isn't an option as I use my Wii U for most of my online activities. My uncle repairs a lot of things including electronics he fixed one of my gamecube controllers. So I'll have to call him, it takes a few hours to do it compaired to a few weeks by sending it in to Nintendo.

Not sure how much this will help, but here's the iFixit guide for fixing the GamePad speakers.
