It was working fine yesterday and has never done this. My gamepad is showing everything, HDMI is plugged into the tv and wii u, power block in and in Wii U. I looked it up other places and it says to change your resolution from your gamepad, and it said it unable to change resolution. Help????

What resolution are you on now? You can't lower it?

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

You sure no one has messed with the TV's settings? It could be in a certain mode that's preventing you from changing it.

Did you already try another HDMI port?
Maybe that could solve the problem.
You could also try to restore the factory settings on your TV.

This is a trial and error situation. It could be anything. And some weird solution could help.
If really nothing helps, your Wii U might be broken. =/

I have had a similar problem when the HDMI cord wasn't fully plugged in

It felt fully plugged in but it needed to go in a little more

Try switching the HDMI cable ports for the Wii and 360. Then see if they both work.

Unplug the HDMI cord, then change it to Standard Definition. Plug in the HDMI back, and then change it back to 1080p. If this doesn't work try the other ideas on the thread.
EDIT: I don't even think you need to unplug the cord, but then I THINK you do have to remove the cord.

I have found on my Samsung every now and then the hdmi socket gets "lost" and I have to power TV off for 30 mins after that back on and the hdmi works again.

Not always happen just every now and then.

PS - by power off I mean off and unplug not on stand by !
