Before Pressing the Red Button inside the Battery Compartment. Make sure to open the Small "Door" on the Front of the Wii and press the Small Red "Sync" Button first and then Press the Small Red Button inside the Battery Compartment. You should hear a "beep" to confirm that your Wii Remote has been reconnected.

I hope this helps. Take care =)

Remote not working


I have rebooted several times during the reinstallation of the software. I also tried different USB, but no luck! Could it be something with the USB driver anyway? The system says the drivers are ok though.. Does anybody know the life expectancy of the batteries to this remote? I don't think it is the batteries though, because the red light on the remote is bright.

My console seems to be working, but the remote will not work. I have changed batteries, bought a new remote, tried unplugging everything and nothing happens. What else can i do?


Have you tried syncing the remotes? Open the SD cover slot on the front of the system you will see a red sync button. Then remove the battery cover to the remote and you should also see a red button. Turn on the Wii and then press the red button on the system. Then press the red button on the controller and see if that works.

The Wii turns on but the remote won't connect to the screen...all lights working also, bought a new sensor bar and still nothing...???


Turn on the Wii console, when at the home screen press any button on the wii remote, if the lights on the wii remote remain dark then it needs new batteries.

If the lights all light up at the same time then stop this means you are not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time to sync, this will work if they have been synced before.

If your four lights still blink blue then you need to open the little compartment on the console that is right below the disc tray. Inside is a little red button, press the button. Now open your battery compartment on the wii remote and take out the battery, then press the red button inside. Put the battery back in and the controller should sync up. If you are still having trouble you will need to contact Nintenedo Technical Support.

Hope this helped!

Bought nintendo wii last xmas and had played quite frequently. then after a break in play of a few mths the remote controls dont seem to be being picked up by the sensor. i chenged the batteries and still...


Hello there

Hold the Wii Remote upside-down with the buttons facing downward.

Tap the remote firmly against the palm of your hand three times to remove any dust sitting between the buttons and the electronic circuit board inside the remote.

Turn the remote upright and press one of the buttons. If the problem continues, Open your Wii Remote's battery door

Check that your Wii Remote contains two new "AA" batteries or a charged battery pack. Check that no corrosion is present on the battery's metal elements/connectors.

Use a cotton swab to clean the remote's battery element/connectors if corrosion is present.

Check that the Sensor Bar cable is inserted firmly into the back of your Wii gaming system. The Sensor Bar needs to be centered above or below your television so the Wii Remote can transmit signals to the gaming system.

Stand three feet away from the Wii gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Aim the remote and press any button to test the device.

If the remote is not working, stand five to 10 feet away from the gaming system and try the device. The Wii Remote works best three to 10 feet away from the gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Move any objects blocking the signal from the remote to the gaming system/Sensor bar--candles, other remote controls (TV/cable box) and wireless computer devices/cellular phones.

Also, if any sunlight is coming in through a window, close the curtains or blinds to keep the light from interfering with the remote's signal.

Turn off and unplug your Wii gaming system. Leave the unit unplugged for one minute. Plug the gaming system back in.

If the remote still aint working;

Turn the Wii system on. Press and hold the red "SYNC" button for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen appears on your television. The "SYNC" button is behind the small door on the front of your Wii unit.

Release the "SYNC" button. Remove the battery cover and batteries/battery pack from the back of your Wii Remote.


Press and release the red button located under the battery compartment. The blue lights on the front of the remote will blink

Press and release the "SYNC" button on the front of your Wii gaming system. The "Player" light on the gaming system stops blinking and stays on, the resetting process is complete

How to sinc your wii remote to a wii


On the front of your wii (where you insert the disc), you will find a small white door in the middle below the drive that flips open. Inside you will see a red button.

Remove the battery cover of the wii remote you wish to register, leave the batteries in it, and press the red button you find there.

Press the red button on the wii. Stay close with the remote.

You may have to do this more than once; I know I often do.

Hope that does it.
