Question about Konami Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party for Nintendo Wii

Dance Dance Revolution

Y does the song stop and give u a fail mark even before the first arrow even gets to the top line of arrows. My daughter has been trying and it starts perfectly but once the arrow shows at the bottom on the screen, the routine stops and my daughter gets an E.

    I'm having the same problem, it says I fail the song before it even starts or in the middle of a song even when I'm not even close to the danger zone. Why is it doing this??

    I have the same problem, the song starts and the game gives me a fail mark.

    Same thing happening here -- game behaves ok for a while then gets into this 'spontaneous failure' mode where it immediately quits you out of the dance.

    I have the same problem. All set up works fine and then song starts and before arrow gets to the top for the first step it closes to the DDR banner and gives a failing grade

    Problems out of the box. Fails a song moments after beginning. All 4 ports, shaking, nothing. Frusterating!

  • massiesl Jan 20, 2009

    arrrrrrrrrrrrgh.   It was working fine earlier and now keeps cutting out when I didn't mess up!

  • Anonymous Feb 04, 2009

    Mine is doing the same exact thing. I can get to a song by using the pad, but as soon as the first arrow shows up at the bottom, the song shuts off and says I need practice.

Spoke to Konami. they advised me to give the mat a little shake like you're smoothing out a tablecloth, then restart wii. Make sure you are in bare feet too.

Made it a lot better for me

I had the same problem with plugging in 2 konami dance mats. Song would start and then an immediate "failed" would flash on the screen. When 1 mat at a time was plugged in the first portal slot, it worked just fine. Called Nintendo and they said it seems to be a problem with the #2-#4 portal slots and the console needs to be sent in for repair. Cost $82.50 and they pick up the postage. Will be sending it in after the holidays. Frustrating since we just got the DDR 24 hrs ago, but Ninetndo was nothing but helpful and understanding on the phone. No complaints about them! Hope this helps!

What mode can you see the figure o the screen dancing. What is the button for freeze arrow? any simple diretions how to follow along?


Free Play, Groove Arena (or whatever it's called), and Workout Modes.


To successfully do the freeze arrow, you have to step and keep your foot on that arrow until you get an OK judgment. You will fail the freeze arrow if you take your foot off too early.

Dance dance revolution arrows slightly over laping


If the arrows that are slightly on top of each other green, those are freeze arrows. You can get rid of them by turning them off in Options after selecting the mode.
If they're not green, it might be a workout step (not 100% sure). You can turn workout steps off in Options after choosing Workout Mode.
If the arrows appear slightly on top of each other despite configuring the options above, it's probably just natural in the game.

When I go to pick a song it speeds past them really fast and doesn't pause on each song so I can choose one. It's like a roulette wheel.


Make sure nothing is on the arrows on the DDR pad. Also make sure you're not holding the arrows on the Wii remote or the control stick on the Nunchuck.

If nothing is being held down on the DDR pad, Wii remote, and Nunchuck, and this problem still occurs, there might be something wrong with something.

The DDR pad works until it's time to start


The unit must be plugged into the player's one socket. The socket is the one closest to the power button on the wii console.

DDR3 for Wii - song ends before arrows start


From Konami's website. It fixed the problem for me.

Why does my DDR game fail as soon as it starts?
If you are playing on the Wii, this indicates the sensor underneath the plus button on your mat is stuck in the down position. To fix this, please unplug the dance mat from your system and then try shaking your mat out a few times as you would a rug. This helps move the sensors back into place and may fix your issue. If you are playing on the PlayStation®2 or the XBOX®360, this indicates the sensor underneath the start button on your mat is stuck in the down position. To fix this, please unplug the dance mat from your system and then try shaking your mat out a few times as you would a rug. This helps move the sensors back into place and may fix your issue.
