For some reason my gamepad keeps turning off by itself like every 10 minutes or so. I have no idea why it's doing this. It's fully charged and within like 6 feet of the Wii U. It'll turn off with absolutely no notice, then I have to turn it back on again and it'll work like normal. This is extremely frustrating because it completely screwed me over in Rayman Legends, it messed up a run that could have put me in the top 10!

Any help with this issue? What could be causing it? This began yesterday, but I didn't do anything to the gamepad to make it behave in this way.

Did you try calling Nintendo tech support? They can help you troubleshoot, probably better than anybody on here can.

Maybe there is a lose wire in your gamepad. Other than that thats all I can think of.

Also, if the low battery light isn't on, it doesn't sound like a battery problem, it could be some connection inside the controller is loose.

Edit: Taskuki beat me to it.
