Re: wii remote not working
It sounds like it could be faulty but I got this info from nintendo's website and at the bottom there is a customer service phone number that will help with any other problems relating to remotes for the wii
Still having problems? If the basic guidelines above did not solve your problem, the more specific information below may help.
Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common: Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues.
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.
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 described below.
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 batteries.
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.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).
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).
This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
If you are still unable to get the Wii console to recognize your Wii Remote(s) after carefully following the steps above, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.
I know this says if your console does not recognise your remote, but they should be able to help you with your problem too
Here is step by step info on how to solve this problem 1: turn on your wii 2: open the back of your wii remote (the place where you put batterys in) 3: you will see a red button in there go the the wii under where you put the disks in there will be a little compartment open it and there wil be a matching red button like the one on the back of your wii remote press both red buttons at the same time and the wii remote should blink then it should work. your friend, cutECAT333

Try removing the batteries after you turn off the system. This will turn off the power to your Wii Remote. Once it's off, put the batteries back in and turn on your Wii. If nothing happens on the Wii Remote, then it needs new batteries.
If you're still getting weird errors, push and hold the power button on your Wii for ten seconds. If you have problems after doing this, contact Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.
If you have more than one remote, you may have to "sync" the remotes to your Wii system.
1. Open the battery cover on your remote and press the red "SYNC" button. The lights on the remote should begin flashing.
2. Open the cover on SD Card slot on the console and press the "SYNC" button.
3. The lights on the remote should stop flashing after a few seconds. Your remote is now ready for use.
This process must be repeated for each new remote.
You need to synchronise the remotes. Take off the battery covers on the wii remotes and open up the flap on the front of the wii where you can put a memory card in. Press the red button that is above the memory card slot and at the same time press the red button that is above where the batteries go on each remote. The wii remotes should flash and eventually give a solid light on either the first or second led at the bottom of the wii remotes. When this happens both remotes are synced.
Do you play with the second controller before? If you not the second controller must "bind" to the console. Open the cover in front of the Wii and press the red button there and then press the red button on the controller.
Well, pressing 1 and 2 doesn't work if your Wii remote came desynched. Press the Red Synch buttons on both the Wii console (located under the SD card flap) and the one on the back of the Wii remote, and hold one then the other for about 5 seconds. Should help.
The problem where the lights would flash on and then go off happened to me also.
I pressed the 'sync' button on the wii remote and the red 'sync' button
on the console at the same time for about 10 seconds. Let go of the
buttons and then the lights should flash and light 1 on the remote came
You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
