Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I called Nintendo and they said that the charging station most likely fryed my controller. Nintendo doesn't currently make any charging stations and recommends that if you want rechargable batteries, to buy the ones that come in a package and recharge in a seperate dock that doesn't stay inside the Wii remote. The charging stations that are out do say Wii on them, but they are not Nintendo approved and may cause problems like mine. They said to always look for the Nintendo seal of quality if you want a trustworthy product. As for me, I have returned my charging dock and the new remote.

Our console would not power on (Wii is not even a week old), and I followed Solution #4 submitted by "trevorwinder" above.

Have you tried the following? If this doesn't work then pleae provide details on details such as the batterys you are using, number of remotes, etc.
The Wii maunual does not give clear instructions how to reset and sync your Wii remotes. I have found that from time to time my remotes will not sync, especially after they have changed 'order' a couple of times. It appears there is a bug in the code that keeps track of remote codes, and it has a limited buffer for the storage of remote ID's / order. Here are quick step by step instructions how to reset the remote list on the Wii console and re-sync your Wii remotes.

Well, pressing 1 and 2 doesn't work if your Wii remote came desynched. Press the Red Synch buttons on both the Wii console (located under the SD card flap) and the one on the back of the Wii remote, and hold one then the other for about 5 seconds. Should help.

Tips for a great answer:
Here's what to do. I've had this happen many times.
1. Open up the SD Card compartment on the Wii.
2. Open up the battery cover on the remotes.
3. Press the red Sync button on the Wii, and then on one of the remotes.
4. Repeat for whatever remotes need synced.
This will make every remote act like the P1 remote. For temporary syncing, just go into the Home Menu and click Wii Remote Settings. Click on another option(it'll say to press 1 and 2) and follow the instructions.
