Step off and press A - but I'm NOT on it!

Trying to set up Wii Fit board. Appears to sync OK, I input height, age and date of birth then it says it will start the assessment but I next get a message 'step off and press A' - this message keeps repeating every time I press A and the only way to get out of the situation is to press the home button

    I have exactly the same problem. I've tried setting it up when standing on it then stepping off - din't know what else to do!

  • jonen Oct 17, 2008

    I phoned Nintendo UK, got the impression this is not uncommon, the assistant said it was probably a sticking sensor and to return it to the store. I have sent it back and am now awaiting a new one.

  • kimftruong Dec 08, 2008

    Same problem too...so did anyone return it to the store? Did you get back a new one?

    After weeks of waiting for Christmas the wii fit doesnt work. Spent an annoying afternoon loosing my temper with everyone trying to get somewhere but to no avail. Just read might be a sticking sensor - very disappointed.

    I have same problem. At first it would lose connection/not recognize stepping during Free Step game. Now just says step off and press A. Have tried new batteries/recharged battery pack/turned off/everything in manuel more than once. Nothing has helped.

  • Anonymous Mar 23, 2009

    Hi. From what I am viewing everyone is having the same problem with the Wii Fit Board saying "step off me and press A". I just got off the phone for Nintendo support for them to tell me I have to send it out for repair. Not only does this irritate me and the fact of the matter is I have only used the Board for 1 hour. I Just got it today. Not impressed!!

You have to insert a wii fit game and bypass all the stuff until the game is ready to play.Open the battery compartment on the Wii board and open the large door on the front of the Wii console.Press the sync button on the board,then press the sync button at the top of the console compartment.The fit board light should stay steady blue.If it doesn't,try it again.When the fit board stays steady blue,it is synched.

Wii fit board won't work


Hello,

Here you have different procedures on what to do if you get that error message. Please get back to me if nothing works.

The exact procedure is:

• Even if the battery level is strong, try the following:

Remove the batteries in the Wii Fit Board for at least 1 minute…… better 15

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:

a 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.

b 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.

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

d 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).

4 Start the game from the Wii Menu, then sync the Wii Balance Board from the opening screen of the game.

Hope it helped.

Cannot register character on Wii fit.


 Are you pointing at the calendar with the wii remote? Other than that... you might want to try re-syncing the remote with the wii, or change the batteries in it. If none of that works, try cleaning the disc, a tiny bit of dish soap and a dribble of water should do the trick.
If all fails, something in wrong with the disc or the remote.

Wii fit


I have found that every so often, especially while stepping on the board, the Wii Fit would get disconnected. I did a little research and found some interesting clues to why it might be happening. I had a theory. Since the batteries are at the bottom of the board I thought the vibration of stepping plus the pull of gravity might be loosening the battery connections enough for the board to lose power temporarily. To test my theory I made a shim out of cardboard from a cereal box to hold the batteries firmly in place. This seemed to have done the trick since I have not had the problem since. I created a template you can get from my site http://www.everythingtech.net/2009/03/wii-fit-board-connectivity-fix/
