Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Console will not connect to controllers

I have held the red sync button down on the console for 15 seconds and removed the batteries from the controllers for 2-3 minutes but the console still won't recognize the controllers. Is there another trick I could try?

Remotes will not sync with console


Hi there, this information comes straight from Nintendo's website. Anything I'd be typing would basically be repeating what comes from Nintendo directly:
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.
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 described below.
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 batteries.
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.
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 through 4).

Cant get pass the "press A button" screen


Turn off for a moment, try again, reconnect your controller.

Since its brand new, you can get it replaced if that doesn't work, dont waste your energy on it, just get another one, free replacement / warraty. Im sure.

2nd wii remote will not connect


Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common:
Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues.

My console does not seem to be recognizing my 2 remotes. They both have new batteries so that is not the problem.


they most likely just need to be syncronized have you held down the red sync buttons on the console and on the remotes? you normally have to do this if u take the batteries out, ill run you through it anyway just incase first take the battery covers off the remotes now if you look at the bottom close to the wrist cord thing you will see a small red button, now if you look at the wii console just below the reset button there is a small panel thing that opens up like a door just pull it open with your finger, now under that panel at the top you will see a rectangular red button that says SYNC on it, now grab your controller and hold the red button on both the console and the controller at the same time till it syncs then repeat with the second controller, hope that helped

My controller can`t connect to the wii. it tries, but it don`t work. i have tried to syncronize and move the wii away from other connection things like phones.


Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console, just below the disc drive, and press and hold the red SYNC button for 15 seconds. This will clear all synced Wii Remotes from the console.Then try to sync it, press the red button on the console, then open the batteries cover on your
Wii Remote and push the red button there.
