Bad connection between wii remote and nunchuck

Had the Wii for about two years. The connection between controller and nunchuck has become loose. I am sure the problem is with the remote (female end) as I have also noticed the problem when playing guitar hero. Game play is frequently inturrupted. The nunchuck and remote used to attach to each other with an audible click but now I hear nothing. Any solution beside purchasing another remote? Thanks.

    Same problem. I think it's the female connector since the nunchuck reconnects when you squeeze the controller.

SOURCE: Wii remote cursor not working in Wii Menu

I find it very irratating to navigate the wii menu as well. It seems our problem is the remote is very very sensitive to the sensor bar. You have to swing the remote around a bit to find the 'hand' you use to click on where you want to go. also, I find that I first have to press A when the menu comes, then almost have the remote 3 inches from the sensor bar. I have also tried putting the sensor bar in different loactions. Like, if we are playing standing up, we put the bar atop of the tv, otherwise if it is a game we can play while sitting, we put the sensor bar under the tv, on the stand (this is a 20") Try moving yours around and find out what works best for you. But it is frustrating as I too find that the remote is too dag 'on sensitive!! Even though I know it's fussy, we still have the problem daily, doen't get any easier! I hope this suggestion helps.

Remote trouble


This happens to me all the time. The connection port for the nunchuck and/or remote is loose from normal (sometimes abnormal) wear and tear. Unfortunately your best option will be to purchase new controllers, especially if it happens a lot. I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but take better care of the new controllers when you get them.

Nunchuck is not syncing


If you're speaking of the Wii controler, the nunchuck has to be connected to the wii remote and cannot be connected to your wii without it.

The game's character doesn't moves the way i want it.


When you're starting your Wii, starting the game, AND connecting the Nunchuck or classic controller to the Wii remote, make sure you don't move the control sick on your Nunchuck or classic controller.
Your character shouldn't move around possesed if you do this.
If you accidently move the control stick, press and hold the A,B,+, and - buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds.

If this problem still occurs, your Nunchuck or classic controller might not be working properly. Return them for a new one.

My Wii remote is plug in and so it the nunchuck and the Wii tell me to connect nunchuck or classic controller to Wii remote one.


Hey,

Is it always the same remote that does this? If so, you have a bad pin(s) inside the Wii Remote and this Remote should be replaced.

My wii nunchuk controller has a loose joystick and I need to tignten it. How do I do it?


The problem is that the copper connectors on the nunchuck are slowly bent flatter. Take a small needle and place in the holes behind each of the five connectors and force them closer by pushing the needle against the back of the connector. You should feel a tighter nunchuck when plugged in to the remote. Good luck.

Dont know how to link to controller


I don't know how to link a wireless nunchuck but you probably have to hit the button on the wii remote where the batterys are and if there's some sort version of that on the wireless nunchuck then you probably would have to hit that and the wii remotes one and pray for the best.

Hopethis works cause if it doesn't well I don't know.

Nunchuck is not working even though connected to wii remote


The sensor may be gone.  The best way to test this is really easy and pretty cool to do.  Take two candles light them and then place them a little further apart than the wii sensor is.  If you are able to use the remotes then the sensor bar needs to be replaced and if ther is still nothing I would try replacing the controller because the infered led's may have gone out.  If that still does not work then the sensor decriptor in the wii has gone out.  Nintendo should be able to help you with that part.  But I do not think that it is the Wii.  I feel that your sensor bar is bad.
