You need to reconnect it to your Wii by pressing the RED Connect buttons on the Wii and Wii Balance Board.
Follow the instruction manual of you WiiFit to know how to do this

How do you sync the wii fit board and wii console

  • Put four AA batteries into the battery housing located on the underside of the Wii Balance Board.

  • Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game into the Wii system.

  • Select the "Disc Channel" on the screen with the Wii remote, and choose "Start."

  • Open the SD card slot to reveal a sync button on the Wii system. This is located behind a cover under the power and eject buttons.

  • Turn the Wii Balance Board upside down.

  • Remove the battery cover under the balance board to reveal another sync button.

  • Pres the sync button on the balance board, then press the sync button on the Wii. Do not hold down the buttons. You know it is synchronized when the blue light on the Wii Balance Board stays steady

  • Place the board on a flat surface directly in front of the TV. Face the power button away from the TV.

    Light going off and on

    Put in a Wii Fit compatible game. Start the game up.
    Once you bypass the wrist strap safety message open up the SD card slot on the front of the Wii and remove the battery cover on the Wii Fit Balance Board.
    Press and release the sync button. The blue light will start blinking. Then press and release the red sync button on the Wii console.

    If this does not fix the problem make sure the battery level for the balance board is not low.
    Change the batteries anyway just incase.

    If that still does not fix the problem, make sure the game you are using is Wii Fit compatible.

    I had been using my Wii fit without any problems until I got (1) a rechargeable battery pack and (2) Wii fit plus. Since then, I don't get very far until the blue light on the balance board starts flashing...

    the rechargeable batteries have a rating system, for how long they last.
    a battery with 850mHa will last a far shorter time than 1 with 2500mHa rating.
    and non rechargeable batteries have a much loger life span than all rechargeables.
    Also rechargeables are 1.2 volt instead of 1.5 volt and will aleays run down alot quicker.

    My wii fit board won't connect with tv is the blue light suppose to stay on all the time or flash

    Hi, thanks for using Fixya!
    • Open the SD card slot on the nintendo wii, open the battery panel on the wii balance board.

    • Press the two red sync buttons on the wii console and the balance board and hold for 3 seconds.

    • The blue light on the back of the wii balance board should flash for 5-10 seconds and then stay blue.

    • If this doesn't work then try changing the batteries and trying again.

    If it still isn't connecting then the problem is something a proper nintendo expert will have to help fix.

    Thanks, I hope I have been of assistance.

    Wii Balance Board Lights won't stay on

    Well - had the same problem, even got a walkthru from Nintendo Support. I was ready to pack it to ship off when, demonstrating everything I had done to a friend -- the darn thing started working again! I think what was going on was the sync was "poor" with the console -- it could sort of see the balance board but not enough to actually work. I did the red-button-on-the-board/ red-button-on-the-Wii thing (press board button then quickly press the console button) several times until it "took" solidly. Don't give up -- keep trying. Yeah their hardware/software has a bug......

    Wii fit balance board

    You need to sync the balance board with the console. Instructions are in the manual. Sync button for board is in battery compartment and sync button for console is in panel under reset button.

    Took a few tries for me, be carefule not to hold sync button on console down for longer than 10 seconds because it will deregister all wii remotes.
