    No, I am not new to the Wii board. I have had it for over a year. I know not to stand on it before it says so. That is definitely NOT the problem!!!!

Do not stand on the Wii fit board until it says to. The board needs to reset itself before any tests are completed. For best accuracy, complete all the initial tests and follow the instructions to the letter.

We have done the checking of the wii fit board and it recegonizes it but then when trying to do a game any fit game it says step off and press A and we do and then it just keeps saying that over and over...


You could try these:

  • Turn it off and then try again without stepping on it before it asks you to.
  • Try reconnecting all the remotes.
  • If you have the board sitting on a thick carpet or something it might cause problems. Try using a hard surface.
  • Try getting the batteries out and then put them back in.
  • Try using another game for the Wii board. If it works it's not a hardware problem and you need to get another Wii fit disc.
  • There also seems to be an issue with rechargeable batteries (the constant charge may be damaging the unit). What you have to do is get a new board from the store you bought it and use AA cells, otherwise the new one might stop working also.

If none of these work your wii board might be faulty (damaged pressure sensors) and you would have to return it and get another one or a refund on your money.
Hope this helps!

Keeps telling me I am fidgeting - tried everthing


Try borrowing a friends Wii balance board and connecting it to your own Wii then try. If it works fine it's a fault with your current wii balance board and you need to buy a replacement. If it still says your fidgeting I would get other individuals to try it, if it doesen't fidget for them it is you fidgeting. If it does say they are fidgeting & you already know your wii balance board is working the same as your friends then the surface your playing on is too un-even (probably too much of a balky carpet) or uneven floorboard/tile (whatever your floor material)

Hope this helps.

Wii balance board won't register


Try putting on the extension feet then you should not have that problem.
- Make sure nothing is on it or under it that could mess with the sensors.
- If the problem persists your problem is the Wii board and it might need to be re-calibrated.

Wii fit board keeps saying get off and press A to initialize game but no one on the board. Have tried new wii fit disk but same. Other ski game works with the board


You get off press a wait for it to say step on and then get on. If it keeps saying it after you get off, take out the batteries and get a new battery pack, don't step on it at all until it loads.

My wii fit board keeps jumping in tightrope game


We had that issue one game and the problem was that we had multiple users all using the same Mii character but weighing between a range of 60lb between people. Because the fit uses weight to determine if you are actually jumping (since you're not supposed to break contact with the fit board) if one user weighs more than the previous person who's weight was used as the calibration, the second person will seem to be in a constant 'jump' state. Try resetting the weight for the Mii you're using, or just recalibrate between users. This totally solved our problems!

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.

I have the rechargeable battery pack on in my wii fit balance board. I the power keeps cutting out and it is saying communication is lost on the balance board, and to push the power button again. This...


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!

I'm trying to go through the setup to WII fit. My child did the body test with no problems a couple of days ago. I keep getting an error (fidgeting) when I try to take the body test. Tried to do fit test...


If your Wii Fit Balance Board is on carpet, be sure to use the extra foot pads that came with your board. If your carpet is really thick, you may need to use a flat woodend board to set the balance board on.

Finally, make sure that you are NOT using your child's Miii to do your own balance test. Each user of Wii Fit must use their own Mii character.

If you don't like my suggestion, please don't rate this suggestion a '1'. If my suggestion doesn't help, the problem may exceed the scope of what can be answered here. You will need to contact Nintendo directly through their website and open a problem ticket.

Good Luck!

Please be a bit more detailed in the problem. The Wii Fit Balance Board is very sensitive to weight shifts. Ensure that you allow the board to calibrate properly. To do this, I would suggest the following steps:

1) Place balance board on a sturdy, flat, smooth surface. If you have average-shag carpet, be sure to use the little adapters that fit over the feet. If the carpet is too thick, then it will NOT work properly. You may want to consider a small piece of plywood or something similar to set between the carpet and Balance Board.

2) Don't step onto the board until it has calibrated (this is when the board establishes its zero point). It will clearly say "Starting Up" followed by "Ok, Step On." After this, you can generally stay on the board unless a particular routine asks you to get off or for some reason it needs to recalibrate.

3) Finally, you must ALWAYS back out all the way to the Wii Fit Plaza (where you pick your Mii) if you change players. Once the board is configured for one player, it will only be suitable for that individual. Its sensitivity is based on an individuals weight. For instance, if the board is calibrated for a 3-year old's Mii, and an adult decides to play any of the routines on that Mii, the board will be over sensitive (calibrated for the lighter weight). Conversely, if an sdult's Mii is selected and a child plays a routine, the board may not detect the movement.

I hope these steps will help. If not, please offer a step by step explanation on what you are doing and I will try to reassess your situation.

Thanks!
