Control failing to pick up punches in Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing
Over the past couple of days my Wii has started failing to pick up the occasional punch in Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing. It happens with either of my (two) controllers, but always with the controller and not the nunchuck. I'll just be punching away, and do an obvious right punch, and it either doesnt register at all, or occasionally happens picks it up really late, maybe on the recoil. I have changed the batteries, checked the positioning of the sensor and the cable and connection. Any other suggestions of what the problem might be or other test I might be able to do to narrow it down further?

I had the same problem until I realized I was holding the nunchuk "backward." Or rather, upside down. With your palm facing down toward the floor, the nunchuk should curve upward, and the center button that sticks up should be facing to where your thumb can rest on it. I had mine the other way, with my thumb on the "trigger" and nothing was registering. So, play with the positioning of the nunchuk in your hand.
there is a time frame that will auto shut off to save power or sometimes in certain games like punch out this happens alot its bugs that they never fixed just step back on it ect to get it going again its a pain but nothing else to do til nintendo fixes there own issue
Start from scratch, turn the system off then turn it back on. Start the wiifit game, when it asks for you to connect it, open the door on the frony of your wii and push the little red buttom, then push the little red button on your wiifit board by takinng the battery cover off and push the little red button and it should sync.
Note that the sensor bar does not interact at all with the Balance Board. It seems that you may have a defective unit. Since you have tried brand new batteries, my suggestion is to open a ticket with Nintendo through their website.
If your Wii Fit Balance Board is on carpet, be sure to use the extra foot pads that came with your board. If your carpet is really thick, you may need to use a flat woodend board to set the balance board on.
Finally, make sure that you are NOT using your child's Miii to do your own balance test. Each user of Wii Fit must use their own Mii character.
If you don't like my suggestion, please don't rate this suggestion a '1'. If my suggestion doesn't help, the problem may exceed the scope of what can be answered here. You will need to contact Nintendo directly through their website and open a problem ticket.
Nintendo had me set and reset the console and then the Wii fit board. They also had me take out the batteries from the Wii fit board, and repeat the reset. Apparently this works in many cases. IT didn't work for me, so now I'm bringing the unit in for repair. I am just a week past my 90 day warranty- they are charging me 47 bucks to fix it! What a sham! that's half the cost of what I paid for the darn thing!
When you get this message, lift the board off the ground, press A, and wait until you get to the confirmation screen before placing the board back on the ground. You may have to try a few times to get the timing right. I have no idea why it thinks someone is on the board, but this workaround has solved the problem for us. Good luck.
Please be a bit more detailed in the problem. The Wii Fit Balance Board is very sensitive to weight shifts. Ensure that you allow the board to calibrate properly. To do this, I would suggest the following steps:
1) Place balance board on a sturdy, flat, smooth surface. If you have average-shag carpet, be sure to use the little adapters that fit over the feet. If the carpet is too thick, then it will NOT work properly. You may want to consider a small piece of plywood or something similar to set between the carpet and Balance Board.
2) Don't step onto the board until it has calibrated (this is when the board establishes its zero point). It will clearly say "Starting Up" followed by "Ok, Step On." After this, you can generally stay on the board unless a particular routine asks you to get off or for some reason it needs to recalibrate.
3) Finally, you must ALWAYS back out all the way to the Wii Fit Plaza (where you pick your Mii) if you change players. Once the board is configured for one player, it will only be suitable for that individual. Its sensitivity is based on an individuals weight. For instance, if the board is calibrated for a 3-year old's Mii, and an adult decides to play any of the routines on that Mii, the board will be over sensitive (calibrated for the lighter weight). Conversely, if an sdult's Mii is selected and a child plays a routine, the board may not detect the movement.
I hope these steps will help. If not, please offer a step by step explanation on what you are doing and I will try to reassess your situation.
I called Nintendo and they said there are sensor problems with some of the boards. We had to send ours back, free of charge (they even paid for shipping) and had a new one within 12 days. 1-800-255-3700 is the repair and troubleshoot #....
