Question about Nintendo Wii Fit for Wii

Jogging doesn't work on wii fit

Hi, we got a wii fit yesterday. After a few goes on jogging it stopped registering that we were moving though we did nothing differently. All the other bits seem ok though.

I tried adjusting sensitivity on remotes and it's been off all day but jogging won't work again tonight.

Any help much appreciated

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!

Want to use two wii fit boards at the same time?

You can't sync 2 balance boards to one wii.

I heard this is why but this isnt confirmed...
the wii can only register 4 controllers at one time... the wiifit balance board counts as 2 controllers, leaving only 2 controllers available... obviously a person would want at least one regular controller to use along with the wiifit balance board, so just using wiifit leaves only one free controller slot available...

hope this helps...

Wii Fit Board won't register with Wii Fit software

Nintendo had me set and reset the console and then the Wii fit board. They also had me take out the batteries from the Wii fit board, and repeat the reset. Apparently this works in many cases. IT didn't work for me, so now I'm bringing the unit in for repair. I am just a week past my 90 day warranty- they are charging me 47 bucks to fix it! What a sham! that's half the cost of what I paid for the darn thing!

Canot use Wii fit balance board

Ensure batteries are fresh. Ensure that Wii Fit (or other Balance Board game) is started up completely before pressing the power button.
