Try dropping it again. Seriously. Inside the remote there is a very small 'gyro sensor' that can get stuck in one spot, basically all you have to do is jar it loose again.
I actually had this same thing happen a while ago, I called Nintendo customer support.
I was surprised. A very pleasant lady took my call within one minute of getting through the push-button maze to get to Wii Remote troubleshooting.
I explained what the problem was and what I had tried. She then asked me to check one more thing - the Wii Sensor - which checked out. Then the conversation went something like this:
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Okay - I want you to take the remote, button side down and smack it into the palm of your hand two or three times."
Me: "You've got to be kidding"
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "No sir, do it hard enough that I can hear it across the phone line but not hard enough to damage the remote"
Me: "You're sure?"
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Yes, sir."
So, button-side down, the funky Wii remote got smacked in the palm of my hand three times....
...and the thing worked!

My daughter has a pink nintendo dsi...for some reason it seems stuck it won`t play a game and the touch screen doesn`t work. it is under a year old and went to walmart where was bought and said to contact...


can you get the DSi connected to the Internet? Update the firmware on it. Specific information can be found at www.Nintendo.com. My daughter's DSi did the same thing, the problem cleared with the new firmware. If it doesn't resolve it, the tech support folks at Nintendo.com should be able to assist... they are a bit slow to respond... but be patient, they do know their stuff.
good luck,
Mark

I droped My DS on the floor and it stoped working. I tryed to charge it, The orange light is on ,but the power button doesn't work. What do I do?


There's probably the inductor just under the power switch that came off. For professionnal repair ,you can ask for a repair at www.mpxlive.com. They offer services at incredible price. a trouble like that should cost betwen 30 to 50 $ without shipping. Hope that can help you

Droped in the mop bucket


If it's less than one year old, you can still have a warranty from Nintendo. I suggest you call them to know if they can fix it.
