Wii console power went off and would not come back on
I changed the game disc and it took it. When I went to get my remote and came back, the power had gone off (totally black, not red or blue) and I could not turn it on either by pressing the power button on the console or by unplug/replug the power cable. Why did this happen and how can I get it to work again? Thanks in advance!

You have to sync the remote to the console. You'll have to hit the sync button on the back of the remote in the battery compartment, and the sync button under the flap near the disc slot on the front of the console, and hold them until the lights on the remote stop flashing.
Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging. The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually. These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.
Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):
Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.
Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.
Synchronizing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console
Synchronizing the Wii Remote to a Wii console allows the
Wii Remote to communicate with the console. The Wii Remote
included with your system should already be synchronized
to your console. However, all additional Wii Remotes you
use with your system also need to be synced in order to function
There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing):
STANDARD MODE -
The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes
to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original Wii
Remote. Once synchronized, the Wii Remote will stay synced to the
console unless you overwrite the settings by syncing the remote to a
different console. For instructions on Standard Mode syncing, please click here.
ONE TIME MODE - This mode allows
you to temporarily use your remote on a Wii console other
than your own, or to use a friend's remote on your console.
It can also be used to change the order of the Wii Remotes,
without the need to turn off the Wii console. One Time Mode
does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the Wii
Remote. In this mode, the Wii Remote will only communicate
with the Wii console while the power is on. When the power
is turned off, the Wii Remote will lose its sync with the
Wii Console. For instructions on One Time Mode setup, please click
Note: Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.
Standard Mode Synchronization Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote (how to).
Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you
wish to sync up.
Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on
the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release
the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.
When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that
is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
One Time Mode SynchronizationNote: This mode temporarily removes Standard Mode
synchronization setup for all Wii Remotes until the power of the Wii
console is turned off. When the power is turned back on again, the
Standard Mode settings will return.
Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.
Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Button menu.
Select the Reconnect Option.
Press the 1 and 2 Buttons at the same time on the Wii Remote that you
want to synchronize with the console. If you are syncing
multiple Wii Remotes, press the 1 and 2 Buttons
on each Wii Remote immediately (without a significant pause) in the order
you want them synced. The order in which you synchronize
Wii Remotes determines the player order (1 through 4) for multiplayer
games. The Player LED will blink during the syncing process.
When the blinking stops, the connection is complete.
First of all, go to the options and do a firmware update. Your Wii must be connected to the internet for this to happen. Next, check the disk for any scratches or other things that may obstruct the laser from reading the disc. If none of those solutions work, then chances are that game in particular is buggy. You may want to check their website.
Do you know where the SD Card slot is? If not, it's at the front just below the disc drive. Open the SD card slot entrance on the front, and take the back off the wii-mote. Turn the wii on, and at the health warning, hold the sync button on the wii-mote, and the one near the SD slot for 5 secconds. That should do it.
are you able to get any of your controllers to connect? if not it could be a issue with your sensor bar. please provide a bit more info
but try this first
Synchronizing the Wii Balance Board with your Wii Console IMPORTANT: To operate correctly, the Wii Balance Board must be synchronized with the Wii console using Standard Mode Synchronization. Follow the steps below to synchronize the board to the console.
This procedure must be followed for each Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
These synchronization settings will be saved even if the console is turned off.
This procedure can be completed only if a compatible Game Disc is running in the console.
Press the EJECT Button on the front of the Wii console and remove any game disc if necessary. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel on the Wii Menu screen and select START.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console. NOTE: Close the SD Card slot cover when you are finished with the synchronization procedure.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board. NOTE: Replace the Battery Cover when you are finished with the aynchronization procedure.
Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking (for up to about 20 seconds).
Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the console while the Power LED on the board is blinking.
IMPORTANT: Do not press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the Wii console down for more than 10 seconds. This will delete all of the Standard Mode synchronization information for all Wii Remotes that you use with that console.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete. You are now ready to play the Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc. Please refer to the instruction booklet for the Game Disc you are using for further information on gameplay.
Only one Wii Balance Board can be synchronized to a Wii console at a time. Up to a total of 10 Wii Remotes and accessories can be synchronized to a console at any time with the Standard Mode procedure. If additional synchronizations are made, the oldest existing ones will be overwritten.
The Wii Balance Board can only be synchronized to one console at a time using the Standard Mode procedure. If you change the console you are using the board with, you will have to repeat the synchronization procedure each time.
The Wii Balance Board uses the Player 4 (P4) connection. If a Wii Remote is actively using P4, that remote will be disconnected while the board is being used.
