No remote control signal and need to change input

I got a Wii for my birthday - yah! My remote stopped working ages ago but I didn't worry to much about it. Now I need to be able to change the input in order to play with the Wii. I ordered a new remote which also didn't work and figured it was a problem with the sensor - I see from here that this is a common problem!!! (not impressed with that!)

So can I change the input manually somehow or do I have to buy a new TV??

How do I fix Magnavox HDTV stuck in av after use of Wii?

If the Wii is not used, and if some other source is used, does the set still stay stuck??? If it stays stuck with the Wii connected, but not with some other device, then the fault is with the Wii and not the TV. Maybe there is something in the characteristics with the Wii output that is the cause...

If that input stays stuck with any source, when I used to do TV service there were a number of things that caused this. I had to sometimes change the input control IC (input matrix IC), and or, one or a few of the components associated with this IC. These components were identified by following the digital control signal paths with a digital scope and volt meter and using the schematic diagram as reference. Sometimes I found the main uPC (micro-controller) in the TV set was the cause because it was not properly sending the command for the input change.

The most basic thing you can check is if the remote is sending the proper remote command signal to the set. If you do not have a remote control signal analyzer you can try another remote such a universal remote control to compare.

I can't seem to sync my wii controller. All 4 lites are blinking and will not stop. I changed the batteries and tried to re-sync the controller w/no luck. It was just working a few minutes ago.

    Try these steps!

  1. Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.

  2. Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.

  3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:

    1. With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.

    2. Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.

    3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).

    4. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

    5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
if nothing else works call 1-800-255-3700

My Wii remotes no longer communicates with the Wii. Yes the batteries are functional. We had a friend over yesterday who like to push buttons. It hasn't worked since.

  • 1 Open the back of your Wiimote and insert the two AA batteries as indicated in the battery panel. Leave the cover off after you've inserted the batteries.
  • 2 Turn on your Wii from the front of the console. Allow the Wii to cycle to the main menu.
  • 3 Open the front door on the front of the console to reveal the SD card input and the "Sync" button.
  • 4 Press the "Sync" button on your Wiimote, located just underneath the batteries. When it is in Sync mode the LED light will flash.
  • 5 Press the "Sync" button on your Wii console to connect the signals and allow the controller and console to sync. This may take a few seconds, so be patient while it continues to connect.
  • 6 Watch to see if the LED has stopped blinking. Once it has, your Wiimote is now connected to your Wii. Put the battery cover back on.
  • 7 Use One-Time Synchronization to change the way the Wiimotes are synced to the console. You can do this by pressing the "Home" button on your controller and choosing "Reconnect." This is useful when you wish to change the player/controller layout without passing different Wiimotes around and losing track of which is which. One-time mode is reset to Standard once the Wii is restarted.

    I need help with wii, I don't really know how to turn it off? should I use the remote control to turn it off or should I turn it off from the console, I want to teach my boy how to do it the right way...

    either works fine. i suggest customers use the remote control switch, the switch on the console is on a very flimsy pc board and it can crack over time or if pressed too roughly. if the switch in the remote breaks for some reason it's cheaper to replace a wii-mote than a console.

    I have a logitech remote for my tv, just bought a wii game. Do i need to program it into my remote as i cannot get the wii to work?

    Because the Wii does not have IR receivers, it is not directly compatible with the Harmony remotes. However, you can still create a "Play Wii" activity that will turn on your other devices that are needed for the activity and set them to the correct inputs. So, for example, you would still need to turn the Wii on manually, but you the "Play Wii" activity would turn the TV on, set the correct input for the Wii and activate your sound system (if separate from the TV). Hope this helps!

    Wii remotes have stpped sending signals.

    When you first press a button on the Wiimote, how many lights blink? If the answer is 1, then your batteries may be too low. 4 blinking lights mean that you have fully charged batteries.

    Other than that, you may want to consult the user manual with regards to re-syncronizing your Wiimote to the console. If you don't have the manual any more, and you have at least two blinky lights, then press the red syncronizing button on the console first, then the corresponding button inside the battery cover on your Wiimote. Reboot the Wii and see if it works.

    Good luck!
