    When attempting the initial measurements in Wii Fit the software resets itself or is unable to get a reading fo your weight. We sometimes get a message to the effect of "stop fidgeting" before the reset occurs.

    The strange part about this problem is we are able to use balance and other games without a problem.

    Any ideeas?

Make sure the program that your are running (ie: Wii Fit, etc) is completely loaded. Your balance board will NOT power up if the software is not running on your Wii.

    The button next to the batteries is not a reset button per se, but rather a sync button. With Wii Fit running, press the reset button on the Wii Fit balance board and immediately press the same color red button on your Wii console (it's in the control panel where the SD card goes, between the reset and eject buttons).

    If you've pressed the red button on the Wii Fit balance board without pressing the sync button on the console, you could disengage it from your system.

    Good luck!

I have a wii fit board, when you power it up, it

Had the same problem. It's a sync problem.
First, best to double check you have fresh batteries.
Next, turn the board upside down and remove the cover from the battery compartment.
Open the small hatch cover on the front of your console unit.
Now start wii fit from the disk menu item.
Next, press the small red button inside the balance board battery compartment. The blue lights will blink for approx 3=5 sec.
While they are blinking, press the red button on the console (in the hatch compartment).
This should re-sync your board and the light stays lit.
Good luck.

Wii fit board light up when I push the on button but it just flickers then goes off. it won't stay on

Did you try resyncing the board? Hold the red button where the batteries go on the balance board and the red button in front of the wii. That might work.

Wii fit board - blue power light flashes then goes off and wont work. This is also happening to my parents one and we are both on our 2nd wii fit board each. Have reset red button but no joy - help please

Unplug the AC adapter from power cord then wait 10 min and plug it again.Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console, just below the disc drive, and press and hold the red SYNC button for 15 seconds. This will clear all synced Wii Remotes from the console.Then push the red button again, then open the batteries cover on your
Wii Remote and push the red button there.After that push the red button on console one more time, then open the batteries cover on your Wii Fit and push red button there.If this not help may your wii fit need service.

Jogging doesn't work on wii fit

This may sound odd, but bear with me for a moment. When you jog, it is the accelerometer in the Wiimote that senses that you are moving up and down. Sometimes it gets stuck.

After ensuring that you have fresh batteries, smack (with relative strength) the Wiimote in your other hand. This should reset the accelerometer in the Wiimote. Nintendo actually has recommended folks to smack it on a table, but I don't think that's totally necessary.

Good luck, and let us know if that helps!

Wii fit balance board

You need to sync the balance board with the console. Instructions are in the manual. Sync button for board is in battery compartment and sync button for console is in panel under reset button.

Took a few tries for me, be carefule not to hold sync button on console down for longer than 10 seconds because it will deregister all wii remotes.
