I bought a Wii U pro controller (Biogenik), and my dad burnt the box before I had a chance to take a look at the instructions. It seemed clear enough though, just plug in one end of the chord to the WiiU, and another end to the controller. When I do this, the little button on my controller blinks blue for as long as it's plugged in. When I unplug it, nothing happens. When I try to synch it with my WiiU, it doesn't work either. It can't be a faulty remote, because I brought the other one back thinking it was broken and got a new one. Anyone have this issue before?

It is like I wrote this myself. Same exact thing is happening to me. Does someone have an answer please.

I would recommend plugging the controller in to a computer to charge it up fully. Remove the charging cable then press the sync button on both controller and Wii U system. Make sure that their is no cable connecting the controller to the system until the controller has been successfully synced first.

Joined around the same time as the original poster, also from Canada? Seems like you DID write it yourself..

Anyway, try syncing the controller like any other Wii controller. Press the sync button on the console when it is on, with the controller settings open on the home menu, then press the sync button on the controller. Just keep trying until it works. If it doesn't work, you either have a faulty controller, or a bootleg. If it doesn't work, looks like you're out of luck. I would say return the controller, but apparently your dad burned the box....

Just stick with first party controllers next time...you won't regret it.

Yeah, it won't charge through the computer either. I feel like Biogenik sent out a big batch of faulty controllers. I've tried synching at least 10 times, too. No luck…

So I talked to the guy at EB games today and he thinks the shipment may have gotten frozen in transport and messed up the rechargable batteries. We tried to charge every biogenik remote they had while I was in the store and none of them were holding any kind of a charge. So returned it and bought the WiiU pro remote. Yay it works like a charm. Thanks for all the help. I will stay away from third party from now on.

Yes. Third party accessories. Don't ever. (Excepts wheels and fight sticks, obviously.)

When you're standing in the store looking at the prices, it's easy to forget that Nintendo's controllers last for the long haul.

RDAmom, where do you live in Canada? Maybe it's particular to Newfoundland's (where I live) shipment exclusively? Anyways, going in today and using your statement for evidence haha. Thanks!

Have to beg to differ, the Nyko Pro Commander is an excellent pro controller substitute if you can find one still for sub $20, great value for a solid well built controller, with possibly the best feeling plastic/texture on the grips

MrFreiza,
I live in Alberta, so not specific to Newfoundland. They were very helpful at EB but I had the box and receipt and had only purchased it 3 days ago. Glad to help.
Thanks!

Forgot to mention Biogenik is an EB games brand so the store guy told me they have a 6 month warranty. That's why I bought it in the first place.

I have been using the my Biogenik controller since November and I have not had any problems with mine. Like what you were saying it was most likely a bad batch. Don't lose faith in the controller or company because it is not a bad controller!

I just stick to Nintendo brand Pro controllers. I got one for around $35 with a coupon at Best Buy.
