Synching wii fit causes wii console to no longer power up
I have had a wii console for a few months now - working with no problems. just got the wii fit for xmas and when i tried to perform the synch step, didnt think i did it right so i turned off the wii console to start over. When i tried to power the console on again, it will not respond at all - no power. i have unplugged the unit and followed the instructions from nintendo support regarding " no power" with no success. now what?

When you power on the wii fit board, does the light flash continuously? If so, you will need to sync your board with your wii again. You can get instructions on how to do so here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/balanceBoard.jsp
Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging. The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually. These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.
Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):
Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.
Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.
Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.
The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.
You need to put in the Wii fit game and bypass all the screens until it is looking for play options.Take the battery cover off of the Wii board and open the large cover on the front of the Wii console.Press the sync button inside the battery compartment on the board,then press the red sync button at the top of the open console.If the blue light stays on constant,they are synched.If not,try again.Good luck and Game On!
Here you have different procedures on what to do if you get that error message. Please get back to me if nothing works.
The exact procedure is:

Remove the batteries in the Wii Fit Board for at least 1 minute…… better 15
Try these steps!
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
3 After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
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
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.

complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1
4 Start the game from the Wii Menu, then sync the Wii Balance Board from the opening screen of the game.
Nintendo had me set and reset the console and then the Wii fit board. They also had me take out the batteries from the Wii fit board, and repeat the reset. Apparently this works in many cases. IT didn't work for me, so now I'm bringing the unit in for repair. I am just a week past my 90 day warranty- they are charging me 47 bucks to fix it! What a sham! that's half the cost of what I paid for the darn thing!
