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.

The Wii turns on but the remote won't connect to the screen...all lights working also, bought a new sensor bar and still nothing...???


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.

Hope this helped!

My nephews wii wont spin the disk,, it will take the disk in and eject it but throws up an error when you try to play the game, i am an electronics tech in the navy and figured the drive motor was bad so i...


The motor didn't go out, the laser itself did. The laser is what actually controls the motor spinning.

Swap the laser out and you should be good to go. I find it's easier to swap the whole drive out complete. It will cost a little more but it's well worth the time and frustration you will face ;)

My nephew dropped the wii now it says cannot read disc every time you put a game in, worked fine before this


when he dropped it this will most likely crack the sensor once its cracked it will not play any disc. if your warranty is still in affect call nintendo customer service they will help you on sending it off to them so they can fix it you can get there contact info from nintendo.com if you dont have a warranty i would recommend just buying a new system and find someone who will buy your wii to sell for spare parts.

Wii is comming on but when it says press a button nothing happens new controls aren't working or sensor bar isn't picking it up what to do


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.

Wii controllers


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.
