How to reconnect Wii remotes to your Wii

There seem to be a lot of people who have had 'problems' with their Wii remotes not working when all they needed to do was reconnect them. Here is a quick guide on how to do this:

When you have turned your wii on press the red sync button next to the SD card slot then press the red sync button on remote(s) under the battery cover. It/they should then be connected. You can then change which one is no.1 or 2 etc. by pressing the home button and going into remote connection and clicking on reconnect.Then press A on your Wii remotes on the order in which you want then (1 first, 2 second etc)

Hope this helps anyone who is having 'problems'.

how to play fifa 09 with two or more players


Dear mcgonagle [i think you're a fann of harry potter!]
THIS IS MY SOLUTION
IT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK


please confirm whether you have two or more remotes. If no t,hen buy. You can get remotes from the respective dealer from whom you bought your Wii from. If you already have two remotes then press the home button in your remote and go to Wii remote settings. After going there you will find an option called "reconnect". Reconnect allows you to disconnect and reconnect your remotes. For reconnecting press 1 and 2 simontaneously in your remotes one by one. Then if your remote is in good connection it will show the charge and player number of your remote. If it doesn't show then you must change the battery or the remotes themselves.  THIS SOLUTION IS NOT GIVEN BY AN EXPERT OR BY A MEMBER OF fixya.com.

2nd wii remote will not connect with mario play 8


We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M

This is from www.nintendo.com/wii :

Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common:
Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp
    Try these steps!
  1. Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.

  2. Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.

  3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
    1. With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.

    2. Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.

    3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture below).

    4. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

    5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
