When trying to sync error message comes up saying connection broken press A but neither of the Wii remotes work anymore. Tried the re-syncing instructions in the manual and eventually got one remote to work again but when retried with balance board same message and remotes knackered again. Please help!!

Re: Cannot synchronise the balance board
Make sure that the batteries in your Wiimotes are fresh. To know, when you start up the remote for the first time, the number of blue led lights blinking indicate battery life. With only one light blinking (or none), it's time to replace your batteries.

You have to insert a wii fit game and bypass all the stuff until the game is ready to play.Open the battery compartment on the Wii board and open the large door on the front of the Wii console.Press the sync button on the board,then press the sync button at the top of the console compartment.The fit board light should stay steady blue.If it doesn't,try it again.When the fit board stays steady blue,it is synched.
Hold down the red "sync" button on the wii console for at least 15 seconds. This clears all connected pairings. Resync your remote(s). then resync the board. The bluetooth radio inside the board is rather anemic. Try syncing it while in close proximity to the console.
Here you have different procedures on what to do if you get that error message. Please get back to me if nothing works.
The exact procedure is:
• Even if the battery level is strong, try the following:
Remove the batteries in the Wii Fit Board for at least 1 minute…… better 15
Try these steps!
Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the
front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a
few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into
the wall outlet.
2 Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When
you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front
of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold
the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on
the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process
3 After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on
the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the
b Press and release the small red button just below
the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the
Wii Remote will blink.
c Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).
When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is
complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1
4 Start the game from the Wii Menu, then sync the Wii Balance Board from the opening screen of the game.
Make sure you are trying to sync it when the Wii Fit game asks you to. It will say "place you wii fit board on the floor and turn it on" or something like that. and then when it asks you, turn it on, and it should sync.
otherwise, try it on another wii if you can... if it works on another wii then its your wii.. if it doesnt work on another wii then it is you Wii Fit Board.
When you are prompted to press the sync buttons you just have to press and release just once the sync button on the console and then on the board. Do not hold the buttons in because you just end up un syncing everything!
I found this on a related post, but it should help:
Hi, After posting my message here I started to fiddle around with the wii fit again and went slowly step by step through the synchronisation steps. Voila it works! what I had done wrong was that I did not press the red synchronisation button for the wii console when the blue lights (after pressing the sync button) on the wii fir board started to flash. you must do this when they are flashing. Hopefully you are as lucky as me and it will work for you too.
