Wii remote won't connect to the wii console


Here is what I went through, hopefully it will save you some time.

The first thing I did while the Wii was turned on was that I tried to sync the Wii Remote by pressing the "1" + "2" buttons at the same time. The lights at the bottom of the controller flashed for about 30 seconds, but never received the signal from the Wii. Bummer.

The next step I followed was to hit the sync button on the Wii Remote (Wiimote). Then immediately opened the cover for the opening where the SD Flash card goes and pressed the sync button on the Wii. 30 seconds of flashing, and no result. Double bummer.

Finally, after some Google searching, I found a couple of message boards where people had to press the Sync button on the Wii (not the Wii Remote) for 15 seconds to reset it. I performed this step and then pressed sync on the Wii Remote. The 2nd controller synced up almost immediately. What a relief!

Apparently the problem lies in the fact that the Bluetooth technology being used has to be manually synced in order for it to connect to the Wii. It does not make much sense at all. You would think they could be pre-authorized in order to minimize time and ease of use. In addition, you really have to be careful that your other controllers are turned on while syncing or else the controller that you are trying to put on channel 3 might end up on channel 2! This happened to me on one occasion.

Good luck with getting your Wiimotes in sync with your Wii. Hopefully this helped!

Wii remotes dont work on the tv screen replaced batteries in both remotes still does nothing


If you ahve checked for all possible obstructions or made sure tha tyour sensor bar is plugged try to re-sync your Wii remotes. Unplug your Wii for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Upon seeing the health and saftey screen hold down the sync button on your Wii console for 15 seconds. This clears out any previous Wii Remote Syncs. After that is performed open up the battery cover on the Wii remote you want to sync and hit the red button, soon after you do that hit the red sync button on your Wii Console. If it syncs properly the blue LEDs on the bottom of the controller will corespond to the # remote it has been synced to. Good luck.

The electricity went off this morning...Now the Wii console power won't turn on....


Confirm the wii is plugged in (wall and wii side); if the wii is plugged into a power strip, confirm the power strip is plugged in, and that any on/off or fuse switch on the strip is set to on (may have been tripped during power surge/outage); unplug the wii for 15 minutes (seriously, 15 minutes), then plug it back in and try again.

Remote does not respond


Have you tried re-sync-ing the remote?

    Try these steps!

  1. 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 described below.

  3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).

    4. 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).
    5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

Wii turns on but has no picture or sound


You could try resetting it by taking out the motherboard battery.

It is on the bottom at the back under a plastic cover.

You may need a tri wing screwdriver to remove the cover.

Try taking this out for a couple of hours and it will reset it.

Hope this helps,

2nd wii remote will not connect with mario play 8


We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M

This is from www.nintendo.com/wii :

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.
