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.
The remote has to be sync'd with the wii properly. If you sync it with another wii you have to sync it back.
Open the battery cover on the wii remote.
Open the front cover door in the middle front.
In each you will see a Red circle sync button in the remote and a rectangle button above the memory slot on the wii front.
Turn on wii, press the sync button on front of wii, then press sync button on remote, the remote should then get a signal and blue lights on front show player #. If not, turn off and try again. Once sync'd it will work with that Wii.
Your wii sensor bar probably went out, replace it. They sell wireless ones at wal-mart for $20. If you want to make absolute sure that the bar is broken, take a video camera and take a quick video of the wii bar while it's connected and the wii is on. If you see four little blue lights on each side then you're wii bar is ok, if any are gone it should be replaced. The fact that all the buttons are still working means that your wii is still communicating with remote using bluetooth, but since it's not sensing any motion, it probably means that the problem is sensor bar related.
dont have a wii fit but, try to reconnect the remotes by pressing the button with the blue house on it on the wii remote, and pull up the wii remote settings. then, press the reconnect button on the remote and follow the directions. if that doesnt work, open the battery compartment on the remote and when the wii is on, press the red button inside the battery compartment on the wii remote that says SYNC. if that doesnt work, try the SYNC. button inside the wii itself. (located in the door in the FRONT of the wii. it has a spot for an SD (scandisk) memory card) it is a rectangular bigger button than the wiii remote. even if none of these options work THANKS FOR READING
I would try reconnecting the controler that is the problem to the wii. There should be a button y ou can hit on the front of the wii that is inside of a little door. It is a red button. Right after hitting that there should be a button on the wiimote's bottom, it the battery area. The lights should blink a while and it should finally connect.
Have you tried the following? If this doesn't work then pleae provide details on details such as the batterys you are using, number of remotes, etc. The Wii maunual does not give clear instructions how to reset and sync your Wii remotes. I have found that from time to time my remotes will not sync, especially after they have changed 'order' a couple of times. It appears there is a bug in the code that keeps track of remote codes, and it has a limited buffer for the storage of remote ID's / order. Here are quick step by step instructions how to reset the remote list on the Wii console and re-sync your Wii remotes.
Un-plug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes (60 seconds should do, but leave it off longer to ensure all the power drains).
Plug the Wii back in, and turn on the power button.
Open the panel on the front of the Wii unit. You will see a Red button.
Open the back panel of the Wii remote where the batteries are installed. Beneath the batteries is a small button.
Press and release the small button. The Blue lights on the front of the remote begin to flash.
Press the Red button on the front of the Wii unit.
The Blue lights on the remote should stop flashing after a few seconds. Then one Blue light will remain representing player 1.
Ok well first of all, you'r first remote is working fine right? Ok lets move on to the second remote. On the left of the wii there is a little hatch that you can open, in there there is the slot to insert a SD memory and there is a red button. Press the red button and wile that is hapenning grab the wiimote and pres 1 and 2 at the same time once. The lights on the remote should start flashing and it will be in sync all together.. And voila two wii remotes working fine,
We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M
Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common: Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp Try these steps!
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.
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.
After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
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.
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.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture below).
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).
This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
