more info required.. do the lights come on at all, if so - synch the wiimote with the wii console while on the WARNING screen(press the red button on the wiimote & the red button near the SD card slot on the console.
If no lights come on the wiimote - you either need new batteries or you may have damaged the wiimote by dropping liquid on it or somethiing similar...sometimes cleaning the wiimote PC board with alcohol swaps may fix that, but it is not a task for a novice (you sound like a novice, so I advise against it).. Opening the wiimote and putting it back together again is not easy for a novice to get right without proper instruction.. My advice - search for videos of how to achieve this. If none of the above work - you probably only have 2 options left.. 1. send it for repair (costs almost the same as the price of a new wiimote) 2. buy a new wiimote ~Good luck
Try syncing the wiimote to the wii itself. Underneath the SD card cover on the front of the Wii and inside the battery compartment on the wiimote are red buttons. Hold both of these at the same time for 5-10 seconds and then try again
Sounds like it needs to be re synced with the system, Easy place batteries in Wiimote and turn on console press the red sync button in the back of the Wiimote and press the red sync button on the console it is now synced. If this fails it could be that the Wiimote has failed, if Wiimote had failed within warranty period of 90days from date of purchase return for repair or replacement if it is after warranty period discard and replace with a new Wiimote.
The wii remote won't power up the Wii itself, or you can't get the wiimote to come on?
If it won't turn on the Wii, it may have to be synced with the system. Not really sure, though. But to sync it, take of the back of the wiimote(the battery cover) and open the little flap on the Wii. There should be red buttons in each. With both on(turn the wii on manually with the power button on the system), press both red buttons at the same time. Alternatively, you can go to the menu and sync wiimotes from there.
If the wiimote won't come on, make sure the batteries are new/charged.
Have you tried restarting the Wii and then synching the wii remote to the wii ?
Just below the disk loader is a hinge you can open to insert a sd card, There is a red button - Push it
Take the battery cover of the wii remote, their is a red button - push it
Push both buttons close together time wise
1. Make sure that your batteries are in correctly. See working Wiimote for reference.
2. When you sync the Wiimote, press the red button in the battery compartment and immediately there after, press red sync button in the Wii Console front panel (where the SD card goes between the Eject and Reset buttons).
3. Power off Wii console completely and restart.
4. Press any button on the Wiimote to activate.
5. If the above steps don't work, you may want to return it to the store for a replacement.
When you sync the wii motes you have to do it in proper order!!!
There are 2 ways to sync one is minor out of sync stuff. You push red button on the wii briefly then quickly press the red button on the wiimote.
Second one is what you need to do. First remove any disk then hold in the power button until the light turns red. (not yellow or orange). Release it then unplug the Wii. Do not remove the batteries but if they are low replace them before you turn it back on. Wait at least 2 minutes.
Have the backs off the Wiimotes.
Plug the Wii in.
Turn the power on.
As the Health and Safety screen appears push in the red button on the Wii.
Hold it there a min. of 15 seconds. 25-30 is better.
When you release it right away push the red button on the first Wii mote. It flashes all the lights.
Immediately press then release the red button on the Wiimote while lights are flashing. When they stop flashing it will be synched.
a.Then press the button on the Wii again (this time only hold for 2-3 seconds) then press the red button on the second wiimote and while lights flash press the button on the Wii again.
Repeat a. for any other wiimotes.
When the lights are blinking like that, it's indicating the battery level, and also indicates that the wiimote is not connected to the wii. Replace the batteries in the one with the left light blinking and see what happens. Try turning off the wii, and pressing the power button on one of the wiimotes. It should turn on the wii and then the far left light will turn solid. Then press a button on the second wiimote and it should connect. If it doesn't, press home on the first wiimote, go to the settings at the bottom, and click Reconnect. Then follow the onscreen instructions and the problem should be solved.
