Wii Fit Hula Hoop Game

Does anyone else have this problem with their wii fit board?
I have played on a wii fit before so i don't think it is me.(lol)
But on the hula Hoop game i can't seen to catch the hoops!!!!!
Is it something i'm doing or could it be my sensors?
I have tried to stand differently to make sure i move my weight over on one side and almost on tip toes to the front!!! but i have only managed to catch one hoop!!
But i know i can do it as i've done it on another wii fit.
I have wooden floors if that makes a difference.
And my board turns it's self off??

    We have the same problem. We are also having problems with the hoops falling immediately when the game comes on.

    I have the exact same problem. No matter how I have the sensor bar, it doesn't recognize when I lean over to catch the hoops or hit the soccer ball with my head.

    I now know what the problem was thank you to my Nephew!!

    Ihad the wii fit around the wrong way.

    Make sure you have the power button at the back.

    I thought it had to be the other way or you might keep knocking the power button off!

    Tips (Hoola Hoop) make sure you lean over to the left and right almost if your doing a side stretch.

    And the football if your mii has to go left lift stand on your left leg (so all your weight is on the left side) and middle make sure both legs are central and on the board.

    Hope this helps.

New crown compatible wii fitness board will not sync with wii console. board only blinks a few times then switches off

Have new crown compatible fitness board, new batteries inserted, inserted Wii fitness disc, choose training, then trial, choose hula hoop game, used remote press A to start.

Screen says place me on a flat floor and press POWER button before stepping onto me

Followed the instructions power button flashes blue, as do the four corners then the lights go out - then nothing happening, still have the same message place flat on floor etc....

Have also tried the Wii Balance Board Check - followed all instructions last one says please turn on power. Pressed button flashes blue as do four corners then they go out

Am I doing something wrong or Is this a faulty board ?

My wii fit board will not stay on when I press the button. I have put new batteries in it.

The WII Fit board will only stay on, if there is a game loaded and waiting to access the board. For instance, the WII Fit game will prompt you to turn on the the WII Fit board. If you turn it on before prompted, the WII Fit board will turn itself off.

However, assuming you do not have a hard ware problem and you have already put in fresh batteries. you may have to resync the WII Fit board and the WII. Try pressing the red button on the WII Fit Board (near batteries) and the WII itself (near the SD card slot).

Unfortunately, you can only have 1 Fit sync'd to a Wii. I don't know if they'll be changing it, but hopefully they do. Not much fun when you have to rotate 4 players instead of playing them 2 or more at once.
