Meh, not taking any chances.  Thanks for the heads up.  Cancelled pre-order, and put in a new one.  My old pre-order didn't even show the other in-game pre-order bonus.

Hi all, 

It has been awhile since I've bought anything from Gamestop or, really, any new stuff. My backlog is so big, I typically don't keep up to date in any sort of way. Hence this question (because I wasn't sure where else to put it).

Gamestop had a great deal for a Wii U with Zelda BoW, Donkey Kong and Mario World. So I bought it! Whoo, I'm slowly catching up to 2011 lol.

Anyway, I got it in the mail today and was curious...Does the front of the Wii U come off? Sorta like the faceplate of a 3ds? Here are some photos, also one of the sticks is jacked on the gamepad. I mean I know it is preowned , but good lord....I think I should replace it, but wanted a second pair of eyes:






Nah, you need to return that ugly thing.  Get your money back and try again...uggh gamestop.

That definitely looks like it sustained a fall.


On another note, looking at their Christmas 'sale', they have randomly raised prices on a number of items.  This company just baffles me.

Question for all my fellow tcl peeps. So I gave in and bought a 55 inch 6 series was going to get the 5 series since it was cheaper but the extra bells and whistles spoke to me even tho I don’t have an x yet just my vcr model. So the 4K is pretty good I think I’m starting to get adjusted to it and I’ve barely touched any of the settings yet. My question is have any of you experienced the tv just randomly shitting off. First it started doing it the second day we had it well watching baywatch on prime. Now it turns off a number of times well watching direct tv. Sometimes it happens consistently other times I will be every couple hours or so. I tried researching it only found could be mother board. I don’t really see any settings about this. I did get it from Best Buy and I did get the 5 year warranty on it. I just don’t want to have to call them about it cuz I literally got the tv delivered on Friday. Anyone else experience this?


Yes, this happens.  It started happening for me as well, but only a few months after owning it.  If it's still within the return period, return it to Bestbuy.  Otherwise, TCL will send a repair person to your home and replace part(s) depending on the symptom...although from doing my research it will always be refusing to turn on occasionally  or randomly shutting off.  Was advised to use the best surge protector in the house, and enjoy it for as long as it lasts...lol

TCL Series 6 owner sending out a disitress call to other owners:


Something happened with my Series 6/Xbox One X combo recently and now I don't get HDR in the games I've tested out (Destiny 2, Halo :TMCC, FH3, GoW5).  I also noticed that the 4K Details page in Settings also shows two items not checked off:


  • Your TV doesn't support 4K at 50Hz.  You won't be able to watch content at 4K 50Hz.  (this was not checked off before)
  • Your TV supports an older version of Dolby Vision that isn't compatible with Xbox One.  (this one is new to me)


If you can check your settings and compare them to mine, I'll be that much farther into troubleshooting this issue.  TIA.




I forgot to mention I have HDMI mode for that Input on the TV set to 2.0 and not 1.4 or Auto and that previously resulted in HDR working fine.

Well, my set is supposedly going to get a repair visit shortly.  Darn thing turns on, but does not display a picture most of the time.  My first TCL tv, and just glad I have a month left in the warranty.  Not sure if I'm going to stick with this brand, but we will see what happens with the repair/replacement.
