Step by step instructions on how to sync the Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus to the Wii console using Standard Mode.
Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.
What to Do:
Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. If you are using a Wii mini, the sync button is located left hand side next to the battery compartment. The sync button is a darker shade of red than the console.
Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to be synced.
Some models of the Wii Remote include a hole in the battery cover and a tool on the wrist strap to push the SYNC Button with. With this model, the battery cover does not need to be removed to access the SYNC button.
Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED on the front of the Wii Remote will blink. While the lights are still blinking, quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console.
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).
This sync procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
make sure flat side of batteries are on springs, make sure batteries are not dead(or chargeable and dead), to sync follow these steps
Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.
When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
I would try to re-sync the controller to the console. 1. Power on Wii 2. remove battery cover from wii remote; press sync button on remote, will cause LED's on remote to blink. 3. Press the sync button on the console (it is located in the memory card holder on the front of the console) 4. The remote is connected once the LED stops blinking. The lit LED indicated what player # the connected controller refers to.
If you are still having trouble then delete the configuration info first and then re-sync the controller to the Wii. Do this by holding the SYNC button on the console for 15 seconds after turning the unit on (once you see the health and safety screen). After you do this you will need to re-sync the controller individually.
It also warns of bright light sources like sunlight near the sensor bar, highly reflective surfaces (mirros, etc.) behind the sensor bar, sources of infrared radiation (portable heaters or fireplaces) or radio interference from cordless phones, cell phones, etc. as possible causes of interference. See pages 22, 32, 34 of your Wii owner's manual for full information, or call 1-800-255-3700 if you are still having difficulty.
sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any
way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.
1. Sync system first (by pressing the sync button located next to the SD memory slot)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hold down the 1
abd 2 buttons on the remote (or press the sync button located under the battery cover).
Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.
Try another controller with your wii or try your controller with a different wii. Repeat sync process above.
If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.
your controller works with another wii and no other controllers work
with your wii than there is a issue with your console.
If your wii is still under warranty I suggest contacting Nintendo directly.
I hope the info listed above has helped in some way. If possible please rate this solution.

Wii Remote(s) after carefully following the steps above, please call

Try reseting the wii console. This is done by removing the battery from the botton of the console. There is a small battery bay held in by 1 screw. Leave it out for a day and after you install it make sure you press the conect button on the wii. (located under SD card reader door). And the connect button on the controller (located in battery compartment on back of controller). Good Luck.
