I have the rechargable battery pack in my wii fit board. The power keeps cutting out, and the error message says communication lost, please turn power back on. This happens over and over again. The battery pack is newly charged, and has never been used. I never had this problem when I used regular batteries in the past.

A Wii balance board is not a re-chargable piece of hardware... it's battery powered. You can buy re-chargable battaries and recharge them every time your power runs out (if you really want re-charge capability). Otherwise you can just buy new batteries and replace the old ones when you run out of power.
thats a good question. that happend to me twice the first time it was just the battery's they just had to be changed the second time it was the balance board. the balance board had a problem from so much use. there was a problem with the power button and motion sensers. when i steped of it turned off so check the batterys first if that dosent work its time for a new one hope this helped :)
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.
You may want to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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).
