Remote controls not working

I have two remote controls for my wii. I was trying to get two players on mario party 8 and I don/t know what I have done but neither of them are working now. I have tried all the steps in the manual and they are still not working. If I try to sync the remotes the lights just keep flashing and don't stop.

    remote controls not working

  • masonj Dec 30, 2007

    We have two remotes, we cant get the curser on the screen, the lights at the bottom flash then stop. I have put new batteries in them and tried to re-sync by pressing red buttons on both console and remotes - but still no joy! The console seems to be fine. These remotes did work fine a few months ago but now nothing. Any ideas?

Second remote will not recognize the wii mario kart. Second remote will work with all other wii games, except for Mario Kart.

Had the same problem last night.... Turn off the wii system by unplugging , wait a couple of seconds and plug back in. Next, the front of the wii has a pocket that opens, there is a red button. Put the disc to mario kart in the wii once you see the federal regs push and hold the red button on the wii for 15 seconds then once this 15 seconds is up with the controllers battery case open push the red button to the original controller. All of lights will flash and then stop. Push the red button on the wii console again just once. Then push the red button on the second remote wait till all lights stop flashing push the red button on the console and now they should be married to the wii system. Hope this helps----do you know how to get the volume? We don't have any volume

Second controller doesn't recognize accelerate, reverse works

Try resynchornizing it to your Wii again. If this doesnt not work, you may have a defective Wii Remote. You should consider replacing if synchronizing it does not work.

Connecting 2nd remote

There are 2 ways to connect remotes on Wii. The way that the remotes sync permanently to a Wii system and the second one that connects the remote temporarily.
To connect the remotes pernanently, open the flap on the front of the Wii and press the red sync button. Then take the remotes and press the buttons 1 and 2 at the same time.
Do the same with the other controllers

The second way can be done via the Home menu. Go to home menu pressing the home button and then point the remote to the bottom of the screen (where a wii remote is iconized) Then go to the synchronization menu to synchronize the remotes. Press 1 and 2 of the remotes to get synchronized.

The time you press the buttons on the remotes determines the player assigned to it. For example, the first remote you synchronize is the first player, the second is the second player etc.

Also, I strongly advice you to READ THE MANUAL
seriously... do it.
