    the problem with the wii remote it doesn't work and we tryed to take out the batteries and wait for a minute and put them in again it didn't work, we tryed holding sync on the wii and on the console and it didn't work so we are asking you if you know what can we do to make the wii remote work again.

    Well, I have had my Wii for about 3 days, I bought it in a bundle of 3 remotes and 3 nunchucks with some games. Then, one of my remotes just stopped working in games, but I could still access my menus and stuff. I have no idea what's going on. It works with the other 2 remotes.

    I have had ny wii since June and so far I have had no problems until this week. i had to change my batteries in the remote yesterday and today was working fine. I switched it off and when I came back to it an hour later the remote wouldnt work, it just constantly flashes and doesnt seem to be interacting with the console. I tried to use the 2nd remote but again the same problems occurs - all four lights on the console keep flashing but nothing happens on screen. I have tried to sync the console and remotes but nothings happening

    Got our new Wii on Xmas day, and 4 days on and the wii remote isn't working. If you try to play bowling on Wii sports the ball goes backwards, on Tennis you can't hit the ball and also on the Brain Train game the cursor is upside down. It appears that the Remote is like it is back to front, if that makes sense. Have tried new batteries and re-synching it, but still not working. Can't buy a new remote anywhere so desperate to get this one fixed. Please help!!

    We had the same problem with the remote that everyone is talking about.


    We tried the advice of flicking the remote like a bullwhip on all 4 sides.
    It worked!!!!  I recommend trying this.  You have nothing to loose and $40.00 to save!!!  Thanks for the advice.

  • cheescordial Jan 08, 2008

    1 of 2 remotes wouldn't swing in golf. but it could aim on menu screen. What the? Replaced batteries, reset remotes and rebooted wii without success. Your site suggested looking at sensor through camera phone which showed lights on both ends working OK- GREAT TIP! Slapped wiimote four directions and now it works OK. A BIG thank you. All OK again, for free! Love your work. Bernie

    that happened to me too, i was playin mario kart(Gamecube game). but then i changed the batteries and the lights flashed and went off

    So then i just turned off my Wii manually, ( just clicked the button) and then i ejected the disk and then turned the Wii back on. Then when it says press A to contine, i tried it and it worked :P. So i guess make sure there is no disk in it, and probably im gonna stop playin gamecube games on the Wii, it might screw up the Wiimote.

    We tried to use our new Wii Fit and can not get it to sync. Also could not sync the orginal controllers. We sent the Wii back to Nintendo for repair and they replaced the "board" and synced the original controllers. Again we tried syncing the balance board for the Wii Fit and it still isn't working. We tried resetting the controllers and now the original controllers cannot be synced again. Any ideas? Can the Wii Fit be messing up everything when we try to sync the balance board?

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.

Unplug the power cord from your WII concole for about 2 minutes. Plug the console back in and power it up. Remove the back cover from the WII remote and press and release the red SYNC button- all 4 lights on the remote will flash. While they are flashing open the cover on the front of the console and press the red SYNC button and release quickly. The remote lights will stop flashing and one LED will come on specifying the contoller number ☼●●● = remote #1
●☼●● = remote #2

Hi,

The problem where the lights would flash on and then go off happened to me also.

I pressed the 'sync' button on the wii remote and the red 'sync' button on the console at the same time for about 10 seconds. Let go of the buttons and then the lights should flash and light 1 on the remote came up!!!

Hope it works for all 'ya!

For solution #24, of all the solutions, this is the one that worked for me. The key, which I was missing in the resync process, is to NOT HOLD DOWN the red resync buttons on the console for more than a couple of seconds. If you do, it will resync EVERYTHING...it will delete all sync's. This is actually stated in the users manual I found online (I lost mine which is why I was online looking for a solution). I was attempting to sync my new Wii board...but I was holding down the red sync button on the console. It was causing the system to NOT sync. Then when I gave up and tried to use the remotes, I found none of them worked. I slapped, banged, changed batteries, etc. Finally, I found solution #24, and it worked. THANKS TO ALL.

If anyone is having trouble with the Wiimote on games like tennis and baseball, it happened to me and there's a simple way to fix it.

Take your Wiimote in your hand and slap it with the buttons facing down onto your other hand. Slap it hard and make sure the buttons are facing down. The accelerator inside might be jammed, and this will unjam it. Someone told me this, and saved me 40 dollars. : )

What appears to have happened is the sensor within the mote has dislodged and been moved out of alignment the smacking both sides works but its only a stop gap solution, you need to open up the mote and tac some solder onto the connections, this will prevent it from going out again, also check the sensor bar is not loose as the cable from the sensor bar can sometimes become loose if it's moved around alot.

Check your sensorbar, take a digital camera or a celphone camera and look at it while the wii is on, if you see some light dots the sensor bar is working fine if not, your remote is probably broken. Your remote seems to be allright cause the lights your mentioning i take it is the small leds on the remote. The sensor bar simply outputs IR(infra red)light which is caught by the remote and then the remote talks back tothe wii via bluetooth. If the sensor bar is busted don´t worry, ican help you there too. If so wirte me and i will explain it too you.. Good Luck

I tried the re-sync and it did not work (I had the blinking lights on both remotes). I replaced the batteries and tried the manual re-sync on both.

Then I read something about interference of other wireless devices being a problem, so I thought I would try hiding one of the remotes while re-syncing.

It worked.

Hide one of the remotes while re-synceing the first one and see if this works for you.

You may have to hide the primary when trying to re-sync the second as well.

W are up and running after a month.

I figured out the solution as to why my Wii remote wouldnt work.

First i did everything like sync it and replaced the batteries and THAT didnt work.

Second i brought a new one to test it out and THAT one wouldnt work. I was baffled as to why nothing would work. So i decided to check every little part of my wii, Including all cords and Stuff and found the Problem. Mice had chewed the sensor Bar cord. I was so upset. So i went hunting for a new sensor bar that plugged into the wii, But i couldnt find one. So i had to buy a portable bar. And now It works fine ^-^

Wiimote not working in games. Wiimote working in the main system menu but not in games. The Wiimote cursor or hand is not showing up in games. You get stuck in games because there is no cursor. I my case I have an older Wii and the problem was caused by on one side of the sensor bar working properly.

The sensor bar is made of up infrared diodes. Apparently having one side working is enough for the main menus to sort of work but not games. You can check you sensor bar by turning on the Wii making sure the bar is plugged in and looking at it with a digital camera or digital video camera. They are sensitive to infrared and the "lights" will show up in the view finder. If only one side of the bar is lit then you have a bad bar.

I was able to fix the bar by opening it up and using a green diode find the bad diode and soldering a bridge across it so the rest of the diodes on that side of the bar worked. The other option is to by a new bar for a few dollars. Hope is helps somebody else.

My Wii controller was jammed like everyone else's. I could navigate the menu but could not swing or bowl or play any of the games. I gave the controller a hard flick... almost like you are cracking a bullwhip. I did it on all 4 sides of the controller to be safe since you don"t know how the accelerometer is jammed up. I also resynced the controller just to be safe. Presto... back in business.

I tried everything recommended by others and nothing worked. Then I realized that the SENSOR BAR had fallen behind the TV. Once I repositioned it back on top of the TV, the remote worked fine!! I feel so stupid but glad the remote doesn't have to be replaced.

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.

Hello there

Hold the Wii Remote upside-down with the buttons facing downward.

Tap the remote firmly against the palm of your hand three times to remove any dust sitting between the buttons and the electronic circuit board inside the remote.

Turn the remote upright and press one of the buttons. If the problem continues, Open your Wii Remote's battery door

Check that your Wii Remote contains two new "AA" batteries or a charged battery pack. Check that no corrosion is present on the battery's metal elements/connectors.

Use a cotton swab to clean the remote's battery element/connectors if corrosion is present.

Check that the Sensor Bar cable is inserted firmly into the back of your Wii gaming system. The Sensor Bar needs to be centered above or below your television so the Wii Remote can transmit signals to the gaming system.

Stand three feet away from the Wii gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Aim the remote and press any button to test the device.

If the remote is not working, stand five to 10 feet away from the gaming system and try the device. The Wii Remote works best three to 10 feet away from the gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Move any objects blocking the signal from the remote to the gaming system/Sensor bar--candles, other remote controls (TV/cable box) and wireless computer devices/cellular phones.

Also, if any sunlight is coming in through a window, close the curtains or blinds to keep the light from interfering with the remote's signal.

Turn off and unplug your Wii gaming system. Leave the unit unplugged for one minute. Plug the gaming system back in.

If the remote still aint working;

Turn the Wii system on. Press and hold the red "SYNC" button for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen appears on your television. The "SYNC" button is behind the small door on the front of your Wii unit.

Release the "SYNC" button. Remove the battery cover and batteries/battery pack from the back of your Wii Remote.


Press and release the red button located under the battery compartment. The blue lights on the front of the remote will blink

Press and release the "SYNC" button on the front of your Wii gaming system. The "Player" light on the gaming system stops blinking and stays on, the resetting process is complete

My wii remote stopped working and its charged why isent it working


Hi,

Your WII remote could have gone bad. If not, your system has a bluetooth that causes the Remotes not to sync. Heres a picture of it. http://www.eeshops.com/images/Wii-bluetooth-module-J27H002-for-Nintendo-Wii-console.jpg


You can either buy one and replace it yourself, or send it in for repair.

I hope I helped. Unfortunately, these are your only solutions.

Goodluck!

Had the same problem just hit the red button in the top pannel and re-sync

Feb 21, 2010 | Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Wii remotes have stpped sending signals.


When you first press a button on the Wiimote, how many lights blink? If the answer is 1, then your batteries may be too low. 4 blinking lights mean that you have fully charged batteries.

Other than that, you may want to consult the user manual with regards to re-syncronizing your Wiimote to the console. If you don't have the manual any more, and you have at least two blinky lights, then press the red syncronizing button on the console first, then the corresponding button inside the battery cover on your Wiimote. Reboot the Wii and see if it works.

Good luck!
