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.
Re: 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!

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.
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.
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
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.
