Well, I don't have a Wii myself but I did some checking and found this. Hope it helps.

When you first get a second Wii remote, you have to press the red button inside the battery compartment and you press the red button by the Wii's SD Card slot simultaneously. Then you turn on the game and you press the Wii menu button. Go to controller settings and select reconnect remotes (can't remember if that's the exact words, but it's something like that). Next you hold 1 and 2 on the first remote, then hold 1 and 2 on the second remote. And that should do it.

I can't seem to sync my wii controller. All 4 lites are blinking and will not stop. I changed the batteries and tried to re-sync the controller w/no luck. It was just working a few minutes ago.


    Try these steps!

  1. 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 described below.


  3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:

    1. 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.


    2. 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.


    3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).


    4. 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).


    5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

Syncing your Wii-mote to your Nintendo Wii


So you just bought a new Nintendo Wii Remote Controller but when you click the power button the four blue lights at the bottom just blink huh? Well that just means your Remote needs to be synchronized to your Wii.

Here are simple step by step instructions to do so.

1) Turn on your Nintendo Wii.
2) Open the door on the front of your Wii covering the SD card slot and the SYNC button.

3) Open the battery compartment on the back of your Wii-Remote Controller.

4) Press the red SYNC button on your Wii.
5) Press the little red SYNC button on your Wii-Mote.
6) Wait until a solid blue LED light comes on on one of the four lights at the bottom.
7) If it doesn't work the first time, try again.
Your Wii-Mote should now be synchronized.

Ok, well me and brother want to play Wii. But we only have one remote, And that remote wont turn on. We are getting like so mad. We've changed the batteries like 5 different times, we've tried Syning it,...


  • Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen (more info).
  • Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote.
  • The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV.
  • Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii console, and the Wii Remote.
  • Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles, sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves.
  • Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically. Check for wireless devices such as cordless phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices, and move or turn them off.
or if the remote lights up briefly than goes out try this

Our new controller wont sync up with our Wii, why? put new batteries in pressed the sync button and the blue lights just keep flashing, is there a special place we have to sit or place the remote?


Did you press the red sync button on the wii where a SD card goes? You press that once then the wii remote sync button once, wait while it flashes then in a few seconds it should be synced in.

On one of the wii controllers all i get is 4 blue lights flashing then nothing


The Wii-mote probably just needs to be synchronized to your Wii. Open the battery compartment on the back of your remote and open the front SD card slot on your Wii. Push the red SYNC button on the Wii and then the little red button on your Wii-moteand it should sync to your console.
