Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer


I have had a Wii for over 5 monthes, ever since I've had the console I experienced a problem where I lose control of the characters and they go running about on their own, the only way to regain control is to press A, B, + and - together, the console has been sent away to Nintendo and they could find no fault, the fault has happened continually on Lego Indiana, Lego Batman and now Tomb Raider, can anyone help?

You most likely have something in your home (or outside your home) that's interfering with the Bluetooth signal that the Wii uses to communicate with the Wii Remotes. Wireless phones and even microwave ovens can do this. I had some issues from a lamp that was too close to the TV, and I get all kinds of problems still when trying to play when bright sunlight is coming into the room. Good luck!

The Wii console keeps losing communication with my Wii remote controller, what can I do

Have you put new batteries in the controller lately? If not that is usually what happens to mine when it is going out.
The other possibility is that the batteries are not in there all the way so the connection keeps dropping make sure there is nothing underneath the batteries in the remote.

My Wii remotes no longer communicates with the Wii. Yes the batteries are functional. We had a friend over yesterday who like to push buttons. It hasn't worked since.

  • 1 Open the back of your Wiimote and insert the two AA batteries as indicated in the battery panel. Leave the cover off after you've inserted the batteries.
  • 2 Turn on your Wii from the front of the console. Allow the Wii to cycle to the main menu.
  • 3 Open the front door on the front of the console to reveal the SD card input and the "Sync" button.
  • 4 Press the "Sync" button on your Wiimote, located just underneath the batteries. When it is in Sync mode the LED light will flash.
  • 5 Press the "Sync" button on your Wii console to connect the signals and allow the controller and console to sync. This may take a few seconds, so be patient while it continues to connect.
  • 6 Watch to see if the LED has stopped blinking. Once it has, your Wiimote is now connected to your Wii. Put the battery cover back on.
  • 7 Use One-Time Synchronization to change the way the Wiimotes are synced to the console. You can do this by pressing the "Home" button on your controller and choosing "Reconnect." This is useful when you wish to change the player/controller layout without passing different Wiimotes around and losing track of which is which. One-time mode is reset to Standard once the Wii is restarted.
