Gamepad is completely dead

pixelart10

Hi. My Wii U gamedpad is completely dead. I have tried to take out the battery for a few hours and tried to start it without result. The battery has power when I loaded it on the side and measured the voltage in it. Now I screwed apart the gamepad, but nothing is loose and I can not see that any circuit has burned. Is there a fuse in the gamepad that could have tripped? 

Answer(s): 
"I am in a similar situation with a Gamepad, however in my case is quite different. I replaced the LCD and touch screen and getting response from the touch screen and sounds. In my case seems to be video related issues, in your case I recommend you to verify the wifi/bluetooth cards. If any of those are not properly seated or damaged the remote will not power on."
More likely than not you're looking at a bad motherboard. If you press the Home button and the power button at the same time does the blue light turn on and then fade away shortly after?
