    Try these steps!

  1. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc in the Wii console.

  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game. Press the A Button to bypass the wrist strap screen.

  3. Open the small SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
  4. Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
  5. Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The blue light on the board will start blinking.
  6. Press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console while the blue light on the board is still blinking.
  7. The blue light will stop blinking and stay on steady once the syncronization is complete.

Hi,
After posting my message here I started to fiddle around with the wii fit again and went slowly step by step through the synchronisation steps. Voila it works! what I had done wrong was that I did not press the red synchronisation button for the wii console when the blue lights (after pressing the sync button) on the wii fir board started to flash. you must do this when they are flashing. Hopefully you are as lucky as me and it will work for you too.

My Wii Balance Board will not power on even after inserting new batteries. The light does not even blink.


you must have the batteries in wrong or they are not charged. Another thing is maybe try putting in a compatible game pretty sure it will sync with out one in but if im wrong its worth a shot.

If this dont help your board probably is toast.

or try please call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.

Balance board will not stay on


If you have already changed the batteries then the problem resides internally. What you need to do is either take it back to the store where purchased or you need to purchase a new one.

Wii board


Make sure that you have synced the board to the wii (similar to a controller). You have to take the battery cover off the board and push the sync button. The blue light will start flashing. From there you need to open the front cover of your wii under the power button.

From there you start up wii fit and it will prompt you to turn on your board. You should get a solid blue light. If you don't, you may need to try syncing again.

Wii fit board - blue power light flashes then goes off and wont work. This is also happening to my parents one and we are both on our 2nd wii fit board each. Have reset red button but no joy - help please


Unplug the AC adapter from power cord then wait 10 min and plug it again.Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console, just below the disc drive, and press and hold the red SYNC button for 15 seconds. This will clear all synced Wii Remotes from the console.Then push the red button again, then open the batteries cover on your
Wii Remote and push the red button there.After that push the red button on console one more time, then open the batteries cover on your Wii Fit and push red button there.If this not help may your wii fit need service.

I cant synchronise my board with the wii box


Make sure you are trying to sync it when the Wii Fit game asks you to. It will say "place you wii fit board on the floor and turn it on" or something like that. and then when it asks you, turn it on, and it should sync.

otherwise, try it on another wii if you can... if it works on another wii then its your wii.. if it doesnt work on another wii then it is you Wii Fit Board.

Cant charge battery pack for wii fit balance board


You may want to send an email to customer.services@gem.co.uk. In the meantime, try keeping it plugged into the USB port for at least an hour, or perhaps overnight. See if the light stops flashing and stays on. Then try plugging it back into the Wii Fit unit.

My personal suggestion is to return the charger and battery and buy a 15-minute charger and four more NiMH AA batteries than you need for all of your accessories. Not only are AA batteries compatible with all your accessories, but you won't be out a gizmo while it's needing to be charged.

Good luck!
