Question about Nintendo Wii Fit for Wii

Wii Fit Board won't register with Wii Fit software

Our Wii Fit board continues to say''Please Step Off Board and press A'' when trying to do anything within Wii Fit.  Checked the board with Wii Ski and it works perfectly.
I deleted my entire Wii Fit file on the Wii, Powered down both the board and the Wii Unit, did  a re-synch and still get the same message.
Any ideas or suggestions.

    Are you using some sort of gel or silicone cover on the Wii Fit board?

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!

Hi, I have just bought a Wii fit and game, on trying to set it up and do the body test, it keeps telling me to step off the board when I'm not on it and it won't let me continue. What can I do?


It looks like there is something wrong with the board. Try one of the following:

1. Power off the board and power back on.
2. Step on and Off from the board.

If this doesn't do anything, try this:

1. Power off Board
2. Power off the Wii and remove the main plug.
3. Put all on back after a minute or so and see if it does the same thing.

If it does the same thing, then I suggest you consult or return the Board to where you buy it from.

Hope this helps.

How do i sync the wii balance board with the console?


First you need to press the red sync button on the balance board, then press it on the wii. After the first sync it should start automatically. If it starts having problems with lag or anything else, try taking out the batteries of the wii fit balance board and then resync it.

Wii fit board keeps saying get off and press A to initialize game but no one on the board. Have tried new wii fit disk but same. Other ski game works with the board


You get off press a wait for it to say step on and then get on. If it keeps saying it after you get off, take out the batteries and get a new battery pack, don't step on it at all until it loads.

My wii fit balance board says to step off and press A


You need to load it, stand on the board, step off, and then press A. I have a WiiFit and that happens. It expects you to be standing on it.

Wii Balance Board thinks I'm on it all the time!


Make sure of a couple of things and try again -

If you are on semi-shag carpet, try using the little foot extenders. They may not seem like much but they can help.

If you are on moderate to thick carpet, you may need a board to set the Wii Fit Balance Board on.

If you are on a wood floor, you can (but don't have to) remove the little foot extenders.

Another little gremlin can be in those silicone covers. If you have one, I'll bet that's the culprit. As nice as they are to keep the board clean, they can actually attach to the non-moving part of the scale (the bottom) to the moving (surface) part. Be sure that your silicone cover is not interfering with the normal movement of the board.

Finally, be sure that you are always using YOUR setting while exercising or it will not be calibrated correctly. Also be sure that when you start, you are not on the board when it calibrates for the first time after turning it on. If the weight on the board differs by about 5 lbs or more than what it thinks you weigh, it will pitch a little wii fit.

I hope you find this advise helpful. If not, though, please don't label this advise as "inappropriate". A "Thanks for Trying" would be just fine.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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

"Step Off Me and Press A" message while not on wii board


When you get this message, lift the board off the ground, press A, and wait until you get to the confirmation screen before placing the board back on the ground. You may have to try a few times to get the timing right. I have no idea why it thinks someone is on the board, but this workaround has solved the problem for us. Good luck.

    Try these steps!

  1. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc in the Wii console.

  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game. Press the A Button to bypass the wrist strap screen.

  3. Open the small SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
  4. Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
  5. Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The blue light on the board will start blinking.
  6. Press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console while the blue light on the board is still blinking.
  7. The blue light will stop blinking and stay on steady once the syncronization is complete.
