It seems like it is a syncing problem. Do the wii remotes flash when you push buttons on them? If they do be sure to try and sync them again. Remember to check the manual on how to sync because it can be irritating at times. Hope this helps.

Common Fixes for Wii


Almost every Wii problem can be solved with a few troubleshooting techniques. The first of which is to unplug the power cord from both the power outlet and your Wii console. This is a particularly useful fix when the following error message appears on-screen: 'Error Occurred. Press the Eject button and remove the disc. Turn the power off and follow the instructions in the console manual' Also, check the disc to see if it is dirty or scratched. Even if it isn't, clean it with a warm, damp rag. If you are having trouble with your Wii remote, check the battery level by pressing the 'home' key on the front of the Wii remote. The 'home' key has a symbol of a small house and brings up a menu that shows the battery level of your Wii remotes. If the battery level on your Wii remote is fine, hold down the sync buttons on both the Wii console and Wii remote. The sync button on the Wii console is located underneath the plastic flap on the front (just below the power button) and the sync button on the Wii remote is located under the battery cover (just above the batteries.) Both buttons are red and have the word 'sync' on them, so they should be fairly easy to find. Hold both buttons for about five seconds or until the 4 lights on the Wii remote flash. Wait a couple seconds and your Wii remote should be re-synced.

Open up the back of the Wii remote and hold down the small red button by the batteries. I had this problem when I bought a second-hand remote and even the reset trick didn't work. If this continues to happen, please help both of us!

You will have to update the wii to play newer games. Your controller problem if it does show a led light on the remote then its synced. If its just not showing you a hand on the screen then its probably your sensor bar. If your controller will not sync and all four leds flash then I would push the button on the console and push the button the remote then just try hitting the a or b buttons. I've also had to slap the remote after hitting the sync buttons to get it to sync. The update thing is normal though.

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.

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!
    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.

    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

Wii remote


Greetings baggie bird,

You need to resynch your remote to your Wii console.

You 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.

Thank you,

Dort

Discs wont register on wii system, remote wont work either


You need to sync the remote with the console.
Remove the battery cover from the remote and press the red
button until the blue lights start to blink. At the same time,
press the the red button to the front of the console.  You
can access this button by removing a small cover on the front
of the console. This will reset the machine and you should
start to see th cursor in the tv screen. Repeat this if necessary
and you should be on your way. Good luck
