    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!). :(

My wii balance board keeps telling me to step off and press A, while I am not on it.


Give credit to GKC on justanswer!!
The exact procedure is:

• Even if the battery level is strong, try the following:

Remove the batteries in the Wii Fit Board for at least 1 minute……

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:

a 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.

b 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.

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

d 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).

4 Start the game from the Wii Menu, then sync the Wii Balance Board from the opening screen of the game.

My Wii Balance Board says 'step off me and press


If you remove the steel footplates (with a star shaped screwdriver) ou will probably find dust or fluff on the sensors. Just wipe them clean and put it all back together.

I have bothe wqii and wii fit board and can not


Have you sinced (Sp?) it yet? If not, here is how you do it. On the front of the Wii, there is something you can open up. Inside of it, there is a red button. On the inside of your battery cover for your Wii fit, there is also a red button. Start the Wii Fit game, and it will ask you to sinc the board, when that happens, press the button on your Wii Fit, and then, after 2 secs, press the button on your wii. (Do NOT hold down the button on your Wii.)

Wii fit board rechargable battery pack


Have you tried regular batteries, the UK model takes 4 AA batteries or is the US model different? Cheap third party battery packs made in China are rubbish and never work for long if at all.

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.
  1. 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.
  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel on the Wii Menu screen and select START.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
