Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

My Wii remote stopped working.

When I try to turn it on, nothing happens. The lights don't work either. I've tried smacking it against my palm but that hasn't helped. I've also tried pressing the reset buttons on my remotes and on the wii, but nothing happened. Two of my 3 remotes are in this condition. Please help.

    Thank you so much. I thought I'd double checked but apparently not, and I found out the batteries were dead. Thanks. We're thinking of getting a charger.

Just sounds like the batteries are dead. To me the wii seems to tear through batteries pretty fast. Hope this helps.

My wii remote just stopped working in between games and now the 2 bottom lights stay on and the remote won't turn off


Hi there,

Try removing the batteries after you turn off the system. This will turn off the power to your Wii Remote. Once it's off, put the batteries back in and turn on your Wii. If nothing happens on the Wii Remote, then it needs new batteries.

If you're still getting weird errors, push and hold the power button on your Wii for ten seconds. If you have problems after doing this, contact Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.

My wii remote is not recognized on the tv and the lights blink continuously.


Did you sync it? You can sync by opening the SD Card slot, pressing the red button, and opening the battery case on the Wii Remote and pressing the red button in the battery cage.

If you did, try this:

Hold the Wii Remote with the button side down and smack it firmly on the palm of your hand.

Hope this helps. -w-

Wii mario kart, second wheel won't turn


I tried resyncing from the main screen, but one of the wiimotes still didn't work. I read to smack the wiimote facedown in your hand a couple of times, and that worked!!!

Apparently the motion sensor can get stuck inside, although it doesn't totally make sense, because previously when the wiimote didn't steer, it still moved on the screen to choose character, car, etc.

Control


Try dropping it again. Seriously. Inside the remote there is a very small 'gyro sensor' that can get stuck in one spot, basically all you have to do is jar it loose again.
I actually had this same thing happen a while ago, I called Nintendo customer support.
I was surprised. A very pleasant lady took my call within one minute of getting through the push-button maze to get to Wii Remote troubleshooting.
I explained what the problem was and what I had tried. She then asked me to check one more thing - the Wii Sensor - which checked out. Then the conversation went something like this:
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Okay - I want you to take the remote, button side down and smack it into the palm of your hand two or three times."
Me: "You've got to be kidding"
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "No sir, do it hard enough that I can hear it across the phone line but not hard enough to damage the remote"
Me: "You're sure?"
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Yes, sir."
So, button-side down, the funky Wii remote got smacked in the palm of my hand three times....
...and the thing worked!

Cannot close the shutters


I had the same exact problem with my W5. After doing some research I found that hitting the bottom of the camera against my palm worked perfectly. This has worked for many others with the same problem. Start by hitting it lightly and increase the force until it retracts when you turn it on. I hope this helps.

Wii remote error


The accelerometers are stuck. Hold the controller so you can smack it on the palm of your free hand. Smack on the palm of your hand with the same force and quickness as you would a fly swatter. This will free the accelorometer. The accelorometer gets locked up when you swing to hard. Also try changing your batteries.

Wii Remote Control Stopped Working


This happened to my son. I did some reading and found out you have to resynchronize the remote. This is from the manual
1) Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2)Remove th battery cover on the back of the remote and press the SYNC. button inside the cover. The Player LEDs will blink.
3)Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment
4)When the Player LED blinking stops,connection is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number.
This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii remote added to your system.

This worked for me, hope it helps you.
