Yes it needs to sync with the Wii. The way you sync it is to first press the button on the wii remote and then press the sync button on the Wii. The sync button on the controller is the red button on the back of the remote where you put the batteries in and on the Wii it is located on the bottom or side (which ever way you have it setting) in the middle behind the small door. Just press the red button on both the Wii and the Remote.

My remotes were synced to another wii how do I re-sync them?


Step by step instructions on how to sync the Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus to the Wii console using Standard Mode.

Note:

Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.

What to Do:

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. If you are using a Wii mini, the sync button is located left hand side next to the battery compartment. The sync button is a darker shade of red than the console.
  3. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to be synced.
    • Some models of the Wii Remote include a hole in the battery cover and a tool on the wrist strap to push the SYNC Button with. With this model, the battery cover does not need to be removed to access the SYNC button.
  4. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED on the front of the Wii Remote will blink. While the lights are still blinking, quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console.

  5. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
  6. This sync procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

Turn off for a moment, try again, reconnect your controller.

Since its brand new, you can get it replaced if that doesn't work, dont waste your energy on it, just get another one, free replacement / warraty. Im sure.

How to snychronize a Wii Remote to the Wii console


A lot of people have trouble synchronizing their Wii Remotes to their Wii console. I have written a short tutorial on how to do this.<br /><br />Figure out which scenario is similar to yours and proceed with the solution-<br /><br />1) When you turn on the Wii console and press any button on the remote no lights light up at all. This is because the remote is dead, you must replace the batteries in the battery compartment on the underside of the remote. If the controller is using a charge pack you need to put the controller on its charger.<br /><br />2) When you turn on the Wii console and press a button on the controller all four lights blink a couple times then turn off. This means the controller is not synchronized. If your controller has ever been previously synchronized all you need to do is press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time and it will sync up.<br /><br />3) If option 2 doesn't work then this means you are preforming a first time synchronization with the remote. While the Wii console is turned on you should open the little compartment that is just below the disc tray. Then you should press the little red button. After pressing the red button you should open your Wii Remotes battery compartment, remove the batteries and press a similar little red button inside of the compartment. Put the batteries back into the controller and the controller should be synchronized! <br /><br />If none of these solutions are working then the problem is a technical issue with either the Wii remote or the Wii system, you should contact technical support for more information.<br /><br />I hope this helped with the synchronization of Wii Remotes!<br />

Syncing your Wii-mote to your Nintendo Wii


So you just bought a new Nintendo Wii Remote Controller but when you click the power button the four blue lights at the bottom just blink huh? Well that just means your Remote needs to be synchronized to your Wii.

Here are simple step by step instructions to do so.

1) Turn on your Nintendo Wii.
2) Open the door on the front of your Wii covering the SD card slot and the SYNC button.

3) Open the battery compartment on the back of your Wii-Remote Controller.

4) Press the red SYNC button on your Wii.
5) Press the little red SYNC button on your Wii-Mote.
6) Wait until a solid blue LED light comes on on one of the four lights at the bottom.
7) If it doesn't work the first time, try again.
Your Wii-Mote should now be synchronized.

I can't seem to sync my wii controller. All 4 lites are blinking and will not stop. I changed the batteries and tried to re-sync the controller w/no luck. It was just working a few minutes ago.


    Try these steps!

  1. Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.


  2. Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.


  3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:

    1. With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.


    2. Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.


    3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).


    4. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).


    5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
if nothing else works call 1-800-255-3700

I have 3 wii remotes was using one that had batteries it died so i replaced all remotes with new batteries and now none of them will sync or work they just turn off right away


After replacing the batteries, you may have to do a hard sync by pressing the sync button beside the SD slot on the Wii and the sync button on the back of the Wiimote underneath the battery cover. Both buttons are a kind of dark reddish-brown colour.

Wii Remote Problems!!


This is factory default with the Nintendo Wii, Try simply removing the batteries when done, OR!, which I do, is hold my hand over the top of the WiiMote and then press the power button, this prevents the Wii from getting the remote's instruction to power down, the remote thinks the Wii got it and then shuts down. Good Luck!
