This keeps happening over and over again.  The battery pack is brand new, and the light is on on the bottom of the wii fit board. What do I do.

If you remove the rechargable battery pack and put regular batteries back in, are you still having the same problem? If so, I would recommend returning the rechargable unit and replacing it.

For what it is worth, I've been using my Wii Fit board for nearly a month on 4 alkaline batteries and have not had any problems.

I recommend rechargeable NiMH batteries with a 15-minute quick charger. Always have four more batteries than you need in your machine, ie: if you have a Wii Fit, a Nyko Wireless Sensor Bar, and two Wiimotes, then you should have 16 batteries total (4 + 4 + 2 + 2 + 4 spare).

Good luck!

My wii fit plus tell me the i have lost my connection


First, the batteries in the Balance Board could simply be dead or need to be recharged.

After ensuring the batteries are good, if it still does not communicate with the Wii, take the battery cover off the balance board, you will see a small red button. On the front of the Wii unit itself, there is also a small red button. Press them both within a short amount of time to sync them together. From this point forward, they should be able to talk to each other.

It may be that the batteries in the board are dying. If you ave not replaced the batteries recently, I recommend doing so. If it is the batteries, the board is trying to communicate with the Wii and can but cannot sent all the info about whoever is standing on it. It simply does not have enough juice.

First, I would check the batteries in the Wii Remote. Low batteries will make the Wii Remote signal flicker. After that, I would re-sync the Wii remote by opening the back of the remote and pressing the sync button, after you turn the Wii on, of course.

My wi power source just quit


Guest: Rechargable batteries are only 1.2 V each. You should get up to 4.8 V.

I highly suggest running your Wii Fit on nothing other than Alkaline batteries. I've had my Wii Fit for over 3 months and still use the original batteries.

If you feel like you need rechargables, that's fine, but I recommend a quality set of regular AA rechargable batteries that comes with a quick charger (IE: 1-hour). Stick to the same brand of batteries and buy enough for each Wii-Mote, Wireless Guitar, Wii Fit Balance Board, etc.

Amy - Keep in mind that your Wii Fit balance board will ONLY turn on when your program (ie: Wii Fit) is loaded and ready to go. Since the balance board takes up one of the four available Wii-Mote channels, make sure all but one Wii-Mote is turned off before starting Wii-Fit.

My wii fit balance board says to step off and press A


You need to load it, stand on the board, step off, and then press A. I have a WiiFit and that happens. It expects you to be standing on it.

Cant charge battery pack for wii fit balance board


You may want to send an email to customer.services@gem.co.uk. In the meantime, try keeping it plugged into the USB port for at least an hour, or perhaps overnight. See if the light stops flashing and stays on. Then try plugging it back into the Wii Fit unit.

My personal suggestion is to return the charger and battery and buy a 15-minute charger and four more NiMH AA batteries than you need for all of your accessories. Not only are AA batteries compatible with all your accessories, but you won't be out a gizmo while it's needing to be charged.

Good luck!
