    I have the same problem, having watched a clip on youtube it seems that you should be asked to get on to the balance board, ours just ells you to get off, even if you aren't on it. It shows a blue light over the top left corner of the image but doesn't allow you to get any further.

    I have exactly the same fault. I was using the board and got off for somebody else to have a go. When they tried to start it keeps saying get off and press a even if no one is standing on it. I have tried to reset board but nothing works.

    My board worked fine for a month & then I got this same problem. I haven't stepped on it & it tells me to get off.

    same here - day 2, three excited kids and grumpy daddy unable to fix problem. "step off and press button a" endless loop. Can bypass by lifting board off floor press "a" then replace on floor but it will add the board weight to yours and I don't think the balance is as good. Maybe best if keep board horizontal when off floor. Appears to consider it's own weight too heavy for zero-ing! Any effective fixes welcome

    Same with me. It was my 9th day using the board. I called their customer support number and we tried together to troubleshoot this problem. When it was all said and done, the customer support person e-mailed me a prepaid FedEx shipping label and said to ship it to East Syracuse, NY to have the board repaired. I should have it back in my posession in 11 - 16 days. Hope I don't have this problem again in the future.

    We've had two boards have this problem in less than a month so we're now using our third which so far seems okay. Rang Nintendo both times and they said to try and take it back to the shop where you bought it. Luckily the shop took it back both times and replaced it with a new one. Alternatively you can send it back to Nintendo free of charge for repair but obviously you will be without it for a week or two.

    I have the same problems...but it took 2 months before mine started acting funny..I will just have to send it back to Nintendo for repair.

  • angele2002 Mar 26, 2009

My wii fit board keeps telling me to ''step off the balance board and press A'' I am not standing on it when i get this message. I've checked the batteries, re synched the board to my wii, taken out the...


Looked around for a solution for a long time for this one.

1) removing the batteries from the Wii Fit balance board for at least a minute.

2) Turn the Wii 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 plug the cord back into the 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 should clear all the old syncs on the Wii.

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 turn on.

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

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, don't forget to sync the Wii Balance Board from the opening screen of the game (you've deleted the syncs earlier).

Another problem may be the surface on which you post the Wii fit, make sure it's flat, try put it on the floor directly or place it on a rug.

And don't forget to "step on" it when it says and not before as the Wii console might be "overloaded".

Please step off press A - constantly repeated - why???????????




If the Wii Balance Board fails to operate, or operates incorrectly, follow the steps below before seeking
assistance.
A. Check the batteries.
B. Check to be sure there is nothing pressing against the bottom.
C. If you are using it on soft carpet, put the foot extensions on.
1. The Wii Balance Board does not respond.
• Make sure the power is turned on. The blue Power LED should be lit if the Power Button has been
pressed. (The Power Button faces away from the TV.)
• Make sure the board has been placed correctly (see page 6).
• Make sure the batteries have been inserted correctly and are not been depleted.
• Make sure the game you are playing is compatible with the Wii Balance Board.
• Review the synchronization procedure on pages 7-8 and make sure this has been done correctly.
This procedure must be done for each Wii Balance Board compatible game.
• If, after verifying the steps above, the Wii Balance Board does not work, try the following:
1. Turn off the power of the Wii console with the POWER Button on the front of the console.
2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds, then plug it back in again.
3. Turn on the power of the Wii console.
4. Repeat the steps in this Operations Manual for setting up the board.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, follow the information at the bottom of this page.
2. Control of the Wii Balance Board is inconsistent or seems incorrect.
• Review the Instruction booklet for the game you are playing to make sure you are performing the
correct actions for that game.
• Make sure the board has been placed correctly (see page 6).
• Try using the Wii Balance Board foot extensions if you are using the board on carpet (see page 10).
• Make sure there are no people or other objects between you and the Sensor Bar.
• Avoid interference from other devices. If communication seems to be affected by other devices
(wireless LAN, microwave ovens, cordless devices, computers) move to another location if possible,
or turn off the interfering device.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, follow the information below.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, an operational check procedure is available
in the Options Menu of the game you are playing. See the Instruction booklet included
with the Game Disc for more information. If your Wii Balance Board does not operate
correctly after all of the above steps, visit support.nintendo.com for assistance and
additional troubleshooting and repair options or call 1-800-255-3700.

My wii fit balance board says to step off and press A


You need to load it, stand on the board, step off, and then press A. I have a WiiFit and that happens. It expects you to be standing on it.

Wii balance board: i press the power button but nothing happens


Ensure you have fresh AA batteries installed. Ensure that Wii Fit (or any other Balance Board using game) is fully started before pressing the power button.

And, at the risk of sounding silly, ensure that the button is facing away from the TV.
