Wii fit board doesn't work properly

It says I'm fidgeting when standing still; weight was off 40 lbs.
I am using the extensions on a thick pile carpet. Any other ideas?

    I have the same sounding problem, where I or anyone else steps on and it says are you fidgeting, please step off, every time we step on. For some reason it is not recognizing the person properly which makes the Wii Fit usless.

    The wii fit will say my weight is 15-20 pounds off and tried a friends wii fit at my house and it worked properly. The floor i have it on is carpeted and should be level i assume. Why would it be doing this and is there a way to fix it.

    We just got the Wii Fit and the first time we did the body test it worked properly. The next day i got on the board and it said i was 20lbs lighter, then i tried again and it would not recognize my weight at all, it said i weighed 16lbs... Can someone help me fix this?

The board keeps asking me to step off when I'm not on the board. It won't work with any game. It thinks it has someone on it when there isn't.

Hello :

Make sure that the Wii Balance Board is placed properly in front of the TV: The blue power light should be facing away from the TV. If the Wii Balance Board is facing the wrong way, your movements will be reversed.
Check the battery life of the batteries in the Wii Balance Board. If the battery level is low, try a fresh set of batteries.
Check to make sure nothing is pressing against the bottom of the Wii Balance Board. If you do find anything pressing against the bottom
(such as carpet), try using the foot extensions

If you are you using the Wii Balance Board on a plush carpet , try using the foot extensions. After you have installed the extensions, re-weigh yourself and check for proper results (within a few pounds.

good luck .

rate please !

What do you do when your wii balance board keeps saying please step off me and press A

Sorry to tell you but it has gone faulty, you need to take it in for repair. There are no serviceable parts inside.

When starting a profile/Mii on Wii fit plus it says to step off and press ''A''. We are not standing on it during set up. What is wrong? Is it fixable?

is it level? try pulling it up a little from its base. it could just be stuck and the pressure sensor is reading it as there is weight on it.
