How do you turn on the Wii controllers???? They arent working for me
My little nephew has the new Wii system. He is at school right now and I am trying to play his games. I turned on the system and set the TV to the correct station to be able to play. I have the Wii Main screen up and running. Only problem is.... I cant figure out how to get the controllers to work. I changed the batteries in each controller. Still nothing. At the bottom of the controller, when I press ANY button on the controller, the 4 little squares light up blue at the bottom. I dont know what to do here. I need a little help. Please Please Please, If you know how to get them working, please fill me in. Thanks.

Turn on the Wii console, when at the home screen press any button on the wii remote, if the lights on the wii remote remain dark then it needs new batteries.
If the lights all light up at the same time then stop this means you are not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time to sync, this will work if they have been synced before.
If your four lights still blink blue then you need to open the little compartment on the console that is right below the disc tray. Inside is a little red button, press the button. Now open your battery compartment on the wii remote and take out the battery, then press the red button inside. Put the battery back in and the controller should sync up. If you are still having trouble you will need to contact Nintenedo Technical Support.
Frist make sure your batteries are right size and installed the right way. Then turn on your wii press the A button at this point you should see lights at bottom of controller. Now push the sinc buttons on the controller and the wii system and you should be set.
YOU PRESS 1 AND 2 AT THE SAME TIME IF THEY ARE ALREADY PRE CONNECTED TO YOU SYSTEM BUT IF THEY ARENT PULL OFF THE WII BATTERY COVER AND YOU WILL FIND A RED BUTTON.. THEN OPEN UP THE LITTLE SLOT UNDER THE INSERT DISK TRAY AND PUSH THE RED BUTTON THEN PUSH IT ON YOUR CONTROLLER IT SHOULD CONNECT THEN... BEST OF LUCK.
they just arent registered with the wii. first open the battery door on the wiimote (control) and press the little red button. then open the SD card slot on the wii and press the red button there and the wiimote will connect
the batteries in your wii remote..... are they rechargeable batteries??? if so then there could be a malfunction withing your comptetition pro charger.... however if they arent rechargeable.... try putting rechargeable batteries in the wii remotes!
Possible scenarios: Out of battery:
Connection has been intercepted:
Take the back off of the remote and then go to the Wii and open the little compartment left of the Wii. Then press the red button on the Wii remote and console simultaneously untill something happens like, connection restored on the Wii screen.
You probably need to synchronize your Wii-Motes to your system. When you press buttons on your controllers do the four LED lights flash at the bottom? This is a clear indication. Your Wii needs to be turned on. You need to open the little door on the front of your Wii where the SD card slot is. Under the slot there is a little red SYNC button. Then open the battery compartment on the backs of your remotes. There is another little red SYNC button here. Press the button on the remotes and then while they're flashing on the Wii and it should sync. If it doesn't work the first time try again.
Sounds like the remotes aren't sync'd up with the Wii in a way to turn it on. I had a strange occurrence with ours where only 1 Wiimote (ha!) out of 4 would turn on the Wii with the power button. Try following the instructions to program the Wii to the Wiimotes again and see if that works. Also try holding the power button on the remotes a little bit longer.
I don't recall but you push the red button behind a hidden cover on the front of the Wii and then the button on the Wii controller behind the battery cover.
