Wii Controller into TV - - Very Bad

My 4 year old let go of his Wii controller and it hit dead center of the TV, clearly breaking whatever is behind the screen such that there are jagged lines emanating from the "break." Is this now simply a junker or is there a (economical) fix. Thanks.

An LCD TV, from front to back, consists of these layers:

protective film - <1mm thick
liquid crystal cells - <1mm thick
charge screen - <1mm thick
backlight panel - 5-10mm thick
metal heat spreader - 2-5cm thick
controller board - 1mm thick

Your son most likely damaged the liquid crystal cells...

Unfortunately unlike normal TVs these are precision assembled, and there isn't much you can do to fix it.

It is possible to replace the screen, but it involves replacing the entire unit, from protective screen right to controller board. In other words, almost everything except the plastic case.

Unfortunately I think the tv is busted permanently, and it will cost more to repair than to replace.

    If he wasn't already, make sure you use the padded gel "jacket" with the fat head that comes with wiimotes from now on, it will help prevent this kind of accident from happening in the future.

Wii controller is not working, no lights at all coming on


Try this following steps: 1. Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen. 2. Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote. 3. The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV. 4. Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii console, and the Wii Remote. 5. Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles, sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves. 6. Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically.

Why wont my ps3 controller come on


Assuming it is a fully functioning controller and is NOT malfunctioning, all you have to do is press and hold down the PlayStation button in the center of the controller. Your PS3 should turn on and the controller should have the 4 channel lights illuminate briefly, until it settles on an available bluetooth channel (usually channel #1).

Now, if the controller isn't working, then you have to charge it. To charge it, plug the mini end of the USB cable into the front of the controller and the regular end of the USB cable into the PS3. The controller will slowly charge while allowing you to actually play whatever games or movies or whatever you are trying to do with your PS3. After approximately a 1/2 hour or so, you can feel free to unplug the USB cable from the controller and there should be no further problems.

If your controller continues to fail to work after unplugging, then you may have a dead battery. You then have 3 options:

1. Live with it and just know that you have to keep the controller plugged into the PS3 via the USB cable,
2. Send the controller to Sony to have the battery replaced (or whatever other thing it is that they need to fix...assuming it's still under warranty),
3. Buy a new controller.

Wii controller strikes tv


to have a new panel installed it would cost approx 50% of what the TV originally cost when it was purchased. (thats a good baseline to go by)
Hope this helps you.

Wii remotes dont work on the tv screen replaced batteries in both remotes still does nothing


If you ahve checked for all possible obstructions or made sure tha tyour sensor bar is plugged try to re-sync your Wii remotes. Unplug your Wii for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Upon seeing the health and saftey screen hold down the sync button on your Wii console for 15 seconds. This clears out any previous Wii Remote Syncs. After that is performed open up the battery cover on the Wii remote you want to sync and hit the red button, soon after you do that hit the red sync button on your Wii Console. If it syncs properly the blue LEDs on the bottom of the controller will corespond to the # remote it has been synced to. Good luck.

The controller is not powering up with new batteries


If your controller does not power up then it is because it has not been synced to the console.

I do not know what system you have so I can not tell you how to do this.

For instance, If you have a Wii, you need to turn on the wii, open the battery cover on the controller. Press the little red button. Then open the little door on the wii where you put the memory card and hit that red button. that should connect the controller to the Wii.

For Xbox 360:
1) Turn on 360 (ring of light) and controller (Start or Guide button).
2) Press the Connect button on the 360.
3) Press the Connect button that's at the top of the controller, next to the slot for a charging cord.
4) Everything spins and flashes, and syncs up.

If you have PS3 then:

Plug your controller into the console with the usb cable, then hit the PS button. that will sync it to the PS3 then you can unplug it.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya!!

Wii controllers


Sounds like the remotes aren't sync'd up with the Wii in a way to turn it on. I had a strange occurrence with ours where only 1 Wiimote (ha!) out of 4 would turn on the Wii with the power button. Try following the instructions to program the Wii to the Wiimotes again and see if that works. Also try holding the power button on the remotes a little bit longer.

I don't recall but you push the red button behind a hidden cover on the front of the Wii and then the button on the Wii controller behind the battery cover.
