The Nintendo Wii U, the follow-up to the massively popular Nintendo Wii, was very much unloved and quickly replaced with the Switch. However, there are plenty still in everyday use.
The Wii U has several different indicator lights, but what do those mysterious lights mean? With some on the console and some on the GamePad, it’s a disco of LED insanity. Here we explain all.
The Wii U console – power LED
Blue – the power is on
Orange – the power is off but a software download or installation is in progress
Red – the power is off
The Wii U console – disc LED
This lights up when a disc is inserted into the console.
The Wii U GamePad – battery LED
Solid red – the battery level is low
Flashing red – the battery level is very low
The Wii U GamePad – HOME button
The HOME Button will flash when you receive a notification, when you receive a Wii U Chat message, or when a friend is online.
