Question about Nintendo Wii Console

The Wii Controler Wrist Strap got ripped

I was playing Wii Bowling, and actually got into it. I think it is the best game in the console and it shows exactly the motion like I do it. The problem was that I got a little bit excited and I let go of the remote like it was a real ball... The strap broke and I hit the corner of my TV, luckily it did not hit the screen, my TV is fine and the control still works. I need to replace the strap, but I don't want to replace it by another strap from Nintendo I want a stronger one. Does anyone know where to get it?

Re: The Wii Controler Wrist Strap got ripped

Go to any game store or anywhere that sells accessories for the wii (wal-mart) by a skin that comes with a strap they are usualy a little stronger looking, the skin will also prevent the remote from sliding out of you hand, i had the remote go flying while playing tenis once but i didnt have the wrist strap on, it bounced off the wall and came back to me and is still ok, they are pretty durable but the skin is the best way to go I wouold recommend a madcatz skin, they make the best recharge station right now and they are cheap and usualy a decent product.

We received the wii system w/ a battery charger included ,but there were no instructions as to whether you can recharge batts. w/o having the them in the unit ,what the red,green light means what the...

Installing the Batteries
    Important Note: If you would like to use rechargeable batteries, the only type of battery recommended are Nickel Metal Hydride batteries. When it comes to using rechargeable batteries, you must follow manufacturer guidelines for safety and proper usage. Failure to do so could cause damage to the Wii Remote and void the warranty.

  1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote and insert two AA batteries, using the plus (+) and minus (-) guides in the Wii Remote's battery compartment to insert the batteries in the proper direction.

  2. Be sure to insert the minus (-) end first when inserting new batteries, and remove the plus (+) end first when replacing the batteries.

  3. Replace the battery cover.
  4. Go to the Next Step (Wearing the Wrist Strap) >

Wearing the Wrist Strap

  1. Place your hand through the wrist strap and hold the remote firmly in your hand. wiiremotewrist1.gif

  2. Slide the strap lock towards your wrist so that the strap will not fall off. Do not over tighten the strap lock so that it's uncomfortable. It should be tight enough to hold the wrist strap in place. wiiremotewrist2.gif
    Go to the Next Step (Syncing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console) >

Synchronizing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console Synchronizing the Wii Remote to a Wii console allows the Wii Remote to communicate with the console. The Wii Remote included with your system should already be synchronized to your console. However, all additional Wii Remotes you use with your system also need to be synced in order to function properly..
There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing):
  • STANDARD MODE - The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original Wii Remote. Once synchronized, the Wii Remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite the settings by syncing the remote to a different console. For instructions on Standard Mode syncing, please click here.

  • ONE TIME MODE - This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a Wii console other than your own, or to use a friend's remote on your console. It can also be used to change the order of the Wii Remotes, without the need to turn off the Wii console. One Time Mode does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the Wii Remote. In this mode, the Wii Remote will only communicate with the Wii console while the power is on. When the power is turned off, the Wii Remote will lose its sync with the Wii Console. For instructions on One Time Mode setup, please click here.
Note: Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.

Wii remote problem

Hello. Make sure you have fresh batteries, double check for damage, and make sure you stay in LOS (line of sight). That means it's not like the PS3's bluetooth controller. You have to make sue the Wii's controler can "see" the sensor bar or you will have intermittent problems during game play. Thank you!!

Maybe the Nintendo Wii overheated because you played with it for too much. Give it a rest and go back to it later.

This will only happen when you are a beginner.... Once you have played a few games it will go away. If you are playing as a guest the bar will always be there.
