Re: discs wont register on wii system, remote wont work...
You need to sync the remote with the console.
Remove the battery cover from the remote and press the red
button until the blue lights start to blink. At the same time,
press the the red button to the front of the console. You
can access this button by removing a small cover on the front
of the console. This will reset the machine and you should
start to see th cursor in the tv screen. Repeat this if necessary
and you should be on your way. Good luck

Have you tried syncing the Wii remotes? To sync, turn the Wii on, open the back of the remote and then press a red button that says "SYNC". Then open the SD card slot in the front of the Wii and press another red "SYNC" button. If you do this, your Wii remotes should be able to turn on.
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 />
Follow this procedure: 1. Turn the Wii console on and wait until the "Health & Safety" screen appears (don't press A).
Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console, just below
the disc drive, and press and hold the red SYNC button for 15 seconds.
This will clear all synced Wii Remotes from the console.
Resync the Wii Remote by removing the battery cover and pressing the
red "SYNC" button. Do this for all Wii Remotes you wish to use, and
test for proper response.
4. If the steps above do not work,
remove the batteries of the Wii Remote and leave them out for at least
2 or 3 minutes. Reinsert the batteries and sync the Wii Remote again.
Test for proper response.
If after removing the batteries for several minutes, and resyncing
the Wii Remote, your still unable to get the Wii Remotes to work, try
syncing another Wii Remote if available.
* If another Wii Remote works, then your previous Wii Remote will need to be repaired.
* If multiple Wii Remotes do not work, or you only have one Wii Remote, a repair of the Wii console is necessary.
Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont work..it has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.
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
if the remote sensor doesnt work, then it wont register with the game console. there is sort of an accelerometer in a wii mote that can sense the changes in angle and height and things like that. that accelerometer could be broken due to dropping of the controller(unlikely) or overshaking(very unlikely) or just bad production(sort of likely). just call the nintendo customer service and confirm the problem with the controller and ask if it is possible to refund the item for a new one or you could just buy a new wii mote. also, you could try using a friends wii mote to make sure that your system is recognizing the controller.
