    Same problem here! if you hold it upside down, then quick flip it over you can use it for a short time. But you should not have to do this! Need a solution quick!

    This must be some kind of defect or something. I am on my second balance board in three months and the second one has developed the same problem as the first. I also get the message please step off and press A and I'm not even on it. I have only have had this board for about two weeks and it has already quit.

    Maybe they need to be recalled.

    Same exact problem here with my 1 week old board. I called Nintendo and the guy I spoke with claimed he never heard of the problem before (I asked if it was a "known" issue). I had to send it back to Nintendo for repair, and now I doubt we'll have it for the holidays and all the games we bought for the kids (and me!). :(

The wii fit game is telling me to push the power button on the balance board with my foot. It blinks blue and that's it. The batteries are fine. So what do I do?


You need to sync the balance board with the Wii. It's easy to do and takes 10 seconds.

1) Start Wii Fit.
2) When it asks you to push the power button as you're describing, open the SD card slot on the front of the Wii and observe the red button.

3) Now, flip over the balance board. Remove the battery cover on the bottom of it, and press the red button beside the batteries, and the blue light should start to blink.

4) While the blue light on the balance board is still blinking, quickly press the red button on the Wii. If they are both blinking at the same time, they should be syncing to each other.

5) Your Wii Fit Balance Board should now be synced with your Wii! If it has been synced successfully, you will no longer need to sync it, and should now automatically connect when the button is pressed with your foot.

Says I'm On When I'm Not


I managed to get my board working by, removing the covers from the feet sensors then placing the board upside down on the floor, then gently pulling on one foot sensor and pressing a, i continued until i found the one with the problem,
the solution i found was if you loosen the screw connecting the plate to the sensor very slightly the board will the calibrate and function correctly,
my board is still working without problems, hope this helps

Wii Fit Board not working


make sure you have the board the right way around! i know it sounds silly but mine did this and all you have to do is make sure the power button is facing away from the tv! i dont know if that solves your problem but it solved mine!

Wii Fit Board won't register with Wii Fit software


Nintendo had me set and reset the console and then the Wii fit board. They also had me take out the batteries from the Wii fit board, and repeat the reset. Apparently this works in many cases. IT didn't work for me, so now I'm bringing the unit in for repair. I am just a week past my 90 day warranty- they are charging me 47 bucks to fix it! What a sham! that's half the cost of what I paid for the darn thing!

"Step Off Me and Press A" message while not on wii board


When you get this message, lift the board off the ground, press A, and wait until you get to the confirmation screen before placing the board back on the ground. You may have to try a few times to get the timing right. I have no idea why it thinks someone is on the board, but this workaround has solved the problem for us. Good luck.

Canot use Wii fit balance board


Ensure batteries are fresh. Ensure that Wii Fit (or other Balance Board game) is started up completely before pressing the power button.

    Try these steps!

  1. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc in the Wii console.

  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game. Press the A Button to bypass the wrist strap screen.

  3. Open the small SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
  4. Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
  5. Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The blue light on the board will start blinking.
  6. Press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console while the blue light on the board is still blinking.
  7. The blue light will stop blinking and stay on steady once the syncronization is complete.

Wii fit


I have found that every so often, especially while stepping on the board, the Wii Fit would get disconnected. I did a little research and found some interesting clues to why it might be happening. I had a theory. Since the batteries are at the bottom of the board I thought the vibration of stepping plus the pull of gravity might be loosening the battery connections enough for the board to lose power temporarily. To test my theory I made a shim out of cardboard from a cereal box to hold the batteries firmly in place. This seemed to have done the trick since I have not had the problem since. I created a template you can get from my site http://www.everythingtech.net/2009/03/wii-fit-board-connectivity-fix/
