Question about Video Game Consoles
Please can you help me with an issue I am having with my Wii. I purchased the Family trainer game (Atari game) (with adventure mat) and I am having problems connecting the Wii remotes. I have 4 Wii controllers that all work while in other games or in the main screen, but as soon as I load the Family trainer game all but one controller disconnects (only controller 1 remains on). When you try and connect any of the other 3 controllers, all 4 lights on the controls flash a few times then go out. I have tried to reconnect in various ways including all advice on your website i.e. -• Try a fresh set of batteries.• Try resetting the Wii Remote – remove the batteries, wait one minute, then replace the batteries. Wait a few seconds and then try using the Wii Remote again.• The Wii Remote synch information may need to be cleared and the Remotes re-synchronised:1. Turn off the console; wait a moment, then turn the console on again.2. When you see the Health and Safety Screen, press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the console down for 15 seconds.3. Synchronise your Wii Remotes using the procedure on pages 30 – 31. (ie disconnecting all the remotes and re-synchronising them)• Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically. Check for and move or turn off wireless devices such as cordless phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices. I have also tried moving the Wii, and tried it at other peoples houses. I have also tried – * Taking the game back and getting a new CD and Mat (have done this twice now at 2 different shops) * Trying the game on a friends Wii * Tried using my friends Controllers * Returned 2 of the controllers and exchanged them for new ones * Turning the wii off over night * Reconnecting all the wires It is really frustrating as some of the games require two remotes and means we can not play them. I have looked on a number of web sites and although there seams to be a lot of people with remote connection problems, they seam to be slightly diffrent to mine as it only appears to be in 1 game not in every one.
If you are in the mulitplayer mode and still have trouble adding the remote then try syncing the remote with the wii first by pressing the home button then go into the wii remote settings on the bottom then re-sync each control. Then try going back into mulitplayer mode and try again or while the screen is on when you want to add more players press the '+' button.
