    What can be done if the sensor is broken/not functioning?

  • adhoffman4 Jan 15, 2009

    I did the wii board test and it told me that the bottom right sensor is not working. So can you buy a new sensor? It is under warranty but it was a gift and I don't have the receipt.

    I have the same problem! Although it is my right upper sensor that is not working. I already checked and the power button is always facing away from the TV... is there any other solution?

  • Anonymous Mar 15, 2009

    so what do you do if sensor is not working?

  • Anonymous Mar 23, 2009

    I am having the same problem. My board is facing the right direction and I just ran a check on the sensors and all are fine. So what else could the problem? I have a cover over the board, but that has not posed any problems in the past. I have only had it for not quite a month. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

Try doing the balance board test to make sure all the sensors are working probably. Click on "User Settings" (the wrench) on the wii fit plaza page. From there your should click on the "wii balance board check." It will walk you through the process and check your sensors to make sure they are working.

Make sure that the power button with the blue light is facing towards the back of you, away from the tv. Mine did the sam ething until I switched the board around and now it works perfectly!

make sure you are using the proper set up for yourself and not someone elses. For instance if my 70lb son tries to use my settings at about 260lb the board will not read the same.

Also make sure your balanced on a flat floor not some thick or shag carpet that is giving underneath it this will change your weight distribution.

If these are not issues it is possible your batteries are just to low and dont have enough juice to fully function.

Wii fit board has a delayed response


check where your motion bar is located and notice your motions in respect to it. If you are too close your motions will be rash, and thus out of sync.... Try backing up your wii fit board and your stance when playing games. This also gives a delayed response... Make sure you are 6-10 feet away from the motion sensor bar...

We have an intec action board for our wii but don't know how to sync it with our wii because we don't have the directions


Okay, so I played 1 wii game and calibrated the board. Each wii board type of game has a profile creation wizard (mine is wii fit), which guides you through calibrating your movements on the board. Once you have a profile, the board understands the movements as directions or coordinates.

Then you can load your profile when you play the game, not the calibration wizard.

Our wii fit board doesnt recognize some steps on the aerobic step. Also, when you lean right it thinks you are leaning left


you sometimes have to lift your feet, not keep them planted. I did the same thing and i noticed on carpet it gets worse.

Top right foot not working


Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done if the sensor has gone bad. Please go to www.nintendo.com if your unit is still under warranty.

If you are using a skin cover on your Wii Fit Balance Board, it's possible that it could be interfering with the movement of the scale. You may want to adjust it so that the top section is not stuck to the bottom section of the board.

Sorry about that. Unfortunately, it seems to be a relatively common problem.

Wii balance board weight differently after put on a wii board sk


Sometimes the silicone skin can have an effect on the Wii Fit Balance Board if it gets pinched. Make sure that it is not interfering with the the total movement of the top portion of the Wii Fit balance board and the space between the top and the middle of the unit. If there is any obstruction, refit the skin on the balance board.

Wii Fit - Hoola Hoop


If you're not shifting enough weight to one side, you can't catch a hoop. I have found that lifting the opposite foot off the board as soon as the toss is thrown helps quite a bit.

If you're still having trouble, evaluate how the board works with other activities on WiiFit. If you notice problems in other areas, you may have a defective unit. There is a calibration feature on the program, and if that doesn't work, try opening up a trouble ticket on www.nintendo.com.
