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!!

How can i re connect the wii fit balance board to my wii ?


Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging.
The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually.
These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.

Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):

Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.


Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.

Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.

Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.

Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.

Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.

The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.

How do you sync the wii console and wii fit board


Put the Wii Fit game disc in the Wii and start the game. Then open the small SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console then remove the battery cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board. Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The light on the board should start blinking. Afterwards press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console while the light on the board is still blinking. The light on the balance board will stop blinking and stay on steady once the syncronization is successful.

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.

I have a wii fit and tried to sych it to my console. I think I held the sych button on the balance board too long and messed up the remotes. They won't work at all now. Please help! Thank You


Ensure your batteries are fresh. Ensure that the Wii Fit (or other Balance Board game) is started up completely before pressing the power button. Try turning off your wii and unplugging from the power source for a few minutes. The plug back in and turn on. At the initial warning screen press and hold the sync button on the will console for about 4 seconds. You will have to re-sync your wii remotes. Next make sure the disc for the game you are going to use the balance board with is in the system and start the game. Then try to sync the balance board.

Wii fit board wont sync


Ok I feel a little silly, there is a sync button on the console (inside the flap by the power on button) and the board (inside the battery compartment on the underside of the board) as soon as I pressed them at the same time it worked. Goodluck everyone.

Wii fit wont turn on


Have you tried to Re-sync?

1. Start the game from the disc, and wait it to run.
2. Press the sync button on the wii fit balance board.
3. Press the sync button on the wii console.

Some people say that holding the wii console sync button for 7 seconds works best.

Wii fit balance board


You need to sync the balance board with the console. Instructions are in the manual. Sync button for board is in battery compartment and sync button for console is in panel under reset button.

Took a few tries for me, be carefule not to hold sync button on console down for longer than 10 seconds because it will deregister all wii remotes.
