It states "Communications with the Balance Board have been interrupted." After following the directions, I resume my work out and it continues to stop. I've syncronized it, changed batteries and repositioned the Sensor Bar. This is a new board. I've been using it almost daily for four weeks.The problem started under two weeks ago.

Re: while working out the system stops frequenty.
Note that the sensor bar does not interact at all with the Balance Board. It seems that you may have a defective unit. Since you have tried brand new batteries, my suggestion is to open a ticket with Nintendo through their website.
While this may not be a 100% solution, i think i can narrow it down for a lot of people. i experience this often in WiiFit... and, as others have stated, the most common time it is seen is during Rhythm Boxing.
Let me ask you folk... do any of you have your Wii Board placed up on another object to get a better work out? (If you haven't tried that, by the way, you SHOULD if your body can handle it... it turns the Step and Boxing exercises up to a whole new level!)
I work out this way... most folk i know have found Step Aerobics boards at garage sales and the like. I haven't come across one yet, so i just use bricks. Still... my board is elevated. I'd bet that other folk who experience this problem also have boards up on something (even if it's just the "feet" that come with the board)
I've observed carefully over time and found that the problem isn't random at all. It always happens when i'm stepping on or off the Wii Board, often when i'm doing so quickly or shifting from one foot to the other. The problem is always accompanied by a rapid blinking of the indicator light on the Wii Board for 20 seconds, then the board powers off.
I'm willing to bet that we're causing some sort of error mode in the device... and while i can't speak with authority, i'd bet that the four sensors in the board are only designed and rated for VERTICAL stress. If your board is off the ground (like mine) and you step on or off with too much sideways force (or front/back force) this may cause one or more of the sensors to go whacko.
Try this... try to be VERY deliberate when stepping on or off the board, making sure your weight is centered directly where your foot is being placed each time. Make certain as much as you can that you are stepping directly down onto the board and leaving it again later in smooth, even movements. I think that LATERAL stress of any kind on the weight sensors is what's causing this problem.
The WiiFit program saying "communications have been interrupted" is just how it manifests in-game, since the error mode breaks communication just as if the Wii Board had the batteries fall out or something.
I've tried to be more deliberate in my foot placement and step technique and it has helped. It's also made me more mindful of my balance and stance, which is a big factor in WiiFit in general. :-) Nonetheless, it's still damn annoying when you get the error in the middle of a boxing routine and by the time the system recovers and you power the Board on again you've totally lost your place in the pattern. That always kills my score.
P.S. - heh, what's the highest score anyone's gotten personally in Rhythm Boxing? i broke 1400 one time (i think i got a 1430-something) but a lot of that depends on what patterns you get during play. The step-back-tripple-combo is the best for high scoring by a large margin. ;-)

You have to insert a wii fit game and bypass all the stuff until the game is ready to play.Open the battery compartment on the Wii board and open the large door on the front of the Wii console.Press the sync button on the board,then press the sync button at the top of the console compartment.The fit board light should stay steady blue.If it doesn't,try it again.When the fit board stays steady blue,it is synched.
there is a time frame that will auto shut off to save power or sometimes in certain games like punch out this happens alot its bugs that they never fixed just step back on it ect to get it going again its a pain but nothing else to do til nintendo fixes there own issue
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.
communication with the wii balance board has been interrupted every time we use the board for any exercise. We have synced many times, but still is happening. Is there any other solutions of what to do besides send it back and pay $60 for a new board from nintendo?
Replace the Wii Remote batteries. Grab 2 AA size batteries, and insert them into the Wii Remote properly. Look closely at the battery slots, and you should see 2 little battery icons. Insert them correctly according to the icons. Communitcations with the Wii Remote should be restored. For more information and solutions, read page 34 in the Wii Operations Manual: System Setup.
If the Wii Balance Board fails to operate, or operates incorrectly, follow the steps below before seeking
A. Check the batteries.
B. Check to be sure there is nothing pressing against the bottom.
C. If you are using it on soft carpet, put the foot extensions on.
1. The Wii Balance Board does not respond.
• Make sure the power is turned on. The blue Power LED should be lit if the Power Button has been
pressed. (The Power Button faces away from the TV.)
• Make sure the board has been placed correctly (see page 6).
• Make sure the batteries have been inserted correctly and are not been depleted.
• Make sure the game you are playing is compatible with the Wii Balance Board.
• Review the synchronization procedure on pages 7-8 and make sure this has been done correctly.
This procedure must be done for each Wii Balance Board compatible game.
• If, after verifying the steps above, the Wii Balance Board does not work, try the following:
1. Turn off the power of the Wii console with the POWER Button on the front of the console.
2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds, then plug it back in again.
3. Turn on the power of the Wii console.
4. Repeat the steps in this Operations Manual for setting up the board.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, follow the information at the bottom of this page.
2. Control of the Wii Balance Board is inconsistent or seems incorrect.
• Review the Instruction booklet for the game you are playing to make sure you are performing the
correct actions for that game.
• Make sure the board has been placed correctly (see page 6).
• Try using the Wii Balance Board foot extensions if you are using the board on carpet (see page 10).
• Make sure there are no people or other objects between you and the Sensor Bar.
• Avoid interference from other devices. If communication seems to be affected by other devices
(wireless LAN, microwave ovens, cordless devices, computers) move to another location if possible,
or turn off the interfering device.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, follow the information below.
If the Wii Balance Board still does not work, an operational check procedure is available
in the Options Menu of the game you are playing. See the Instruction booklet included
with the Game Disc for more information. If your Wii Balance Board does not operate
correctly after all of the above steps, visit support.nintendo.com for assistance and
additional troubleshooting and repair options or call 1-800-255-3700.
