Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

My Wii fit board intermittently keeps losing power, although I have brought a rechargable WII battery pack and it is fully charged. the programees are interupted with power loss. The board did not come with extra extension feet for some reason do you think this is the solution? If so where do I buy those from as I have searched and cannot find them anywhere and dont want to buy them if they are not going to stop the problem. My board is on carpet but it is not that thick

How do you charge your wii console

The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.

  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    You don't really get any instructions with the wii fit rechargeable battery! I was wondering do I charge the battery in the board or out of the board!

    Charge the batteries while out of the board. Charging with them installed could cause damage to your wii fit board.

    Ive had my wii fit board for a year or so but in the last few months it keeps losing connection with the wii. why is this

    Hello, this is may due to one of the following issues: - the battery pack is exhausted or not properly charged. Try to charge it for one whole night, if this doesn't work you should get a new one (you may find it in your local retailer) - there's a possible source of radio waves too close to the Wii such as: wifi weather station, wifi router, cordless telephone, etc... try to keep away any wireless device and see if you get the wiifit connection back. I hope it was helpful. Feel free to ask if you need further info. Bests, Peter

    I had been using my Wii fit without any problems until I got (1) a rechargeable battery pack and (2) Wii fit plus. Since then, I don't get very far until the blue light on the balance board starts flashing...

    the rechargeable batteries have a rating system, for how long they last.
    a battery with 850mHa will last a far shorter time than 1 with 2500mHa rating.
    and non rechargeable batteries have a much loger life span than all rechargeables.
    Also rechargeables are 1.2 volt instead of 1.5 volt and will aleays run down alot quicker.

    Wii remotes will not stay on

    1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
    2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
    3. Remove the battery pack & install regular batteries.
    4. On the back of the Wii remote press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
    5. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
    6. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
    7. Quickly remove the batteries and reinsert your Battery Pack.
    8. Return to Step 2 for each other remote.

    You may run into this issue any time your battery pack has a 0% charge left in it for a duration. Try to keep them charged to prevent it from occuring in the future.

    Wii fit board rechargable battery pack

    Have you tried regular batteries, the UK model takes 4 AA batteries or is the US model different? Cheap third party battery packs made in China are rubbish and never work for long if at all.
