    I can be playing with my Wii remote and all of a sudden the four lights start blinking and the game pauses as it lost contact. I've pulled the batery to get it to work again and I've waited like a minute and then they synch again. But the rechargable batteries are fully charged, why would it temporarily loose contact?

Turn the wii on, and open the slot next to the disk drive.
then on the wii remote take the battery cover off, but dont touch the battery.
press the red button on the wii, then do it on the remote. (the buttons should be labeled "sync".)
when they connect, your problem should be fixed.

PLEASE RATE THIS.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IF IT WORKS, OR DOESN'T WORK.

Bought a new will remote but it doesn't work.


Check the battery levels. You can do this by pressing A. If all 4 lights flash on and off, your batteries are completely charged. 3 lights, 2 lights, and 1 light signify 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 battery levels. If lights don't flash, replace/insert batteries.
If it's not working with your console, open up the battery cover and the flip lid on the front of the console. (If it's a Wii U, you don't need to open the flip lid.) In both places, there is a red button. (On Wii U, it's next to the flip lid.) Press both red buttons at the same time. (Your Wii will need to be powered on.) The Wii Remote will continuously flash lights until it either receives a sync signal or about a minute has passed; whichever comes first. If you've pressed the buttons and your remote is still flashing, press the button on the console again. Once the remote is synced, the flashing lights will turn into a single light; the placement of the light will vary depending on how many remotes are signed into the Wii.
*Note* Once your remote is synced, you simply need to press A to sign back in if your remote turns off.
If all of the above steps were followed, and your remote is still not functioning, contact the manufacturer. Brands such as Nintendo and Nyko are usually okay, but generics like GameStop aren't the best. It's often easiest to return it and buy a different brand.

How do i sync my remotes with my nintendo wii, four blue lights flashing but not working with picture on screen, cannot get off first screen when wii turns on. cheers


Hi there,
You need to press the red button under the protection cap for the SD card reader AT THE SAME TIME AS the one under the battery protector on the remote. Sometimes, it takes more than one try to get it to work.
Hope this helps,
Regards

Wii Problem, the remote


make sure a combination of the 4 blue lights at the bottom of the remote are on (but not flashing, mind you). if they're not, this means that your wii remote isn't connected to your nintendo wii system yet. if when you press a button and none of the lights turn on at all, this means that there are no batteries in your wii remote. if it flashes, this means its trying to connect to your wii system. you might have to troubleshoot this a little bit. try to aim it at the bar that recognizes the wii signal (a separate piece that comes with the wii system).
hope this helps ;-)

Can't sync wii remotes to console


When you sync the wii motes you have to do it in proper order!!!

There are 2 ways to sync one is minor out of sync stuff. You push red button on the wii briefly then quickly press the red button on the wiimote.

Second one is what you need to do. First remove any disk then hold in the power button until the light turns red. (not yellow or orange). Release it then unplug the Wii. Do not remove the batteries but if they are low replace them before you turn it back on. Wait at least 2 minutes.
Have the backs off the Wiimotes.
Plug the Wii in.
Turn the power on.
As the Health and Safety screen appears push in the red button on the Wii.
Hold it there a min. of 15 seconds. 25-30 is better.
When you release it right away push the red button on the first Wii mote. It flashes all the lights.
Immediately press then release the red button on the Wiimote while lights are flashing. When they stop flashing it will be synched.
a.Then press the button on the Wii again (this time only hold for 2-3 seconds) then press the red button on the second wiimote and while lights flash press the button on the Wii again.
Repeat a. for any other wiimotes.

Wii remote


Greetings baggie bird,

You need to resynch your remote to your Wii console.

You hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.

Thank you,

Dort

Cursor does not appear


exchange it

    Cursor not appearing
    Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
  • Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the steps below.

  • Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii Remote designated as "Player 1" to function.

  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.

  • Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength. Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1) or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting, if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate. For guidelines on using batteries, please click here. If after inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs flash, then your Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

  • Is the Wii Remote properly synced?
    Press the POWER button on the Wii Remote to see if the Wii console powers on.
    • If it does, the Wii Remote is synced with the system. Please skip to the next section.
    • If the power doesn't come on, power on the system manually and try syncing the Wii Remote.
      • If the Wii Remote will not sync, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
      • If the Wii Remote will sync and the cursor still does not appear, try another Wii Remote if possible.
        • If at least one Wii Remote is working, there is likely a problem with the first Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
        • If you have only one Wii Remote, or none that are working, please continue troubleshooting.

  • Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
  • Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
  • Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly, by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side through the Wii Channel screens.
    • If you are able to scroll with the "+" and "-" buttons, but the cursor is not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for additional Sensor Bar information.
    • If there is no response, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
