You must contact Nintendo via their website at Should be no charge if you are within 90 days of purchase. Otherwise, cost will be similar to a new unit (which is actually a bargain right now).

Good luck, and I'm sorry it isn't working for you.

Wii fit board has a delayed response

check where your motion bar is located and notice your motions in respect to it. If you are too close your motions will be rash, and thus out of sync.... Try backing up your wii fit board and your stance when playing games. This also gives a delayed response... Make sure you are 6-10 feet away from the motion sensor bar...

We have done the checking of the wii fit board and it recegonizes it but then when trying to do a game any fit game it says step off and press A and we do and then it just keeps saying that over and over...

You could try these:

  • Turn it off and then try again without stepping on it before it asks you to.
  • Try reconnecting all the remotes.
  • If you have the board sitting on a thick carpet or something it might cause problems. Try using a hard surface.
  • Try getting the batteries out and then put them back in.
  • Try using another game for the Wii board. If it works it's not a hardware problem and you need to get another Wii fit disc.
  • There also seems to be an issue with rechargeable batteries (the constant charge may be damaging the unit). What you have to do is get a new board from the store you bought it and use AA cells, otherwise the new one might stop working also.

If none of these work your wii board might be faulty (damaged pressure sensors) and you would have to return it and get another one or a refund on your money.
Hope this helps!

I did a balance board check and the bottom left and the top right sensor are not working. What do I do

Unfortunately, the balance boards are prone to failure. Your choices are to contact Nintendo about repairs (they tend to charge a small fortune) or buy a new one. Repairing this yourself would be difficult because the parts are not easy to get a hold of unless you are a repair shop.

Top right foot not working

Unfortunately, there is not much that can be done if the sensor has gone bad. Please go to if your unit is still under warranty.

If you are using a skin cover on your Wii Fit Balance Board, it's possible that it could be interfering with the movement of the scale. You may want to adjust it so that the top section is not stuck to the bottom section of the board.

Sorry about that. Unfortunately, it seems to be a relatively common problem.

Wii Fit Doesn't work

Do not stand on the Wii fit board until it says to. The board needs to reset itself before any tests are completed. For best accuracy, complete all the initial tests and follow the instructions to the letter.

Says I'm On When I'm Not

I managed to get my board working by, removing the covers from the feet sensors then placing the board upside down on the floor, then gently pulling on one foot sensor and pressing a, i continued until i found the one with the problem,
the solution i found was if you loosen the screw connecting the plate to the sensor very slightly the board will the calibrate and function correctly,
my board is still working without problems, hope this helps

Wii Fit Board won't register with Wii Fit software

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!

WII FIT Board only recognizes movement on one side

Try doing the balance board test to make sure all the sensors are working probably. Click on "User Settings" (the wrench) on the wii fit plaza page. From there your should click on the "wii balance board check." It will walk you through the process and check your sensors to make sure they are working.
