one of my Wii remotes stopped working for no reason a couple of days ago. All I did was recharge the batteries for it and when I put them back in nothing would happen. I tried name brand non-rechargable batteries in case the rechargeable ones were the problem, but nothing. I have tried every trick I know to get it to work, I have tried pressing the sync buttons on the remote and console at the same time, numerous different batteries, pressing 1 and 2 at the same time, but all for naught. Let me clarify when I say it doesn't work, I mean the blue lights at the bottom dont even flash at all!
Now this wouldn't be much of a problem since I have a second remote, but I broke the second remote when I was....shall we say under the influence, so now I have two remotes that dont work and dont fancy shelling out 50 euro for a new one.
Thanks in advance!
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.

If a Double-A battery insert is present, then take out your rechargeable and insert 2 Double-A batteries. Then, start up the remote and point at the screen (Making sure sensor block is in range and exposed) so the remote can re-calibrate. Once done remove the batteries, if you'd like, and re-insert the rechargeable battery pack. IF this fails, simply remove and re-insert the rechargeable battery pack. Shut down the Wii manually at the home unit, and then start it back up using the Wii remote.
If you have had the "battery" for a long time, it could be that it can no longer carry a charge. Rechargeable batteries' charge grow shorter over time. If you still use the Wii/Wii U regularly, I suggest rechargeable AA batteries+charger (If you don't have them already). AA batteries work in other devices so even if you stop using the Wii, the batteries will still work in remote controls, clocks, flashlights etc unlike a WiiMote Battery pack.
If the blue light on your Wii controller doesn't light up, its possible that it ran out of battery charge. If you think your battery is fully charged. try to buy a set of disposable battery and see if they will work. If they do work, it means your rechargeable batteries have gone bad.
Hi there, Normally, the Wii remote will work properly unless dropped on the floor or banged against any hard surface. The Sensor connected to your Wii can sometimes end up dying because of normal use. This can be purchased for a mear 10 dollars at any Wal-Mart. If the sensor is not the problem, make sur that you are at the same level as your sensor when playing games. If you happen to be higher or lower, your Wii remote may end up moving unvolantarily around for no reason. The Wii remote is sturdy and has never broken up for me for the past 2 ½ years. Does the problem arise only when you use the docking station battery? If so, the battery would be the problem. I have stopped using this battery because of problems like these. I would recommend recharable Ni-hM batteries instead. Hope this helps, Regards
I had the same problem. When I looked at my system, I noticed the sensor was turned sideways with my tv remote in front of it. When I turned my sensor around correctly, and moved my tv remote away from it, the arrows suddenly appeared! Make sure nothing is blocking your sensor!
