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

Hello Tricia,

If your WII Remotes are not syncing, then the problem is the "Bluetooth" a picture of it can be seen below

You could either send this in for repair, or buy the bluetooh control board online somewhere. Though, I must warn you of 2 things.

1.) You could do your system more harm trying to replace it yourself.

2.) This might not be the problem, but most of the time it is.

Bought brand new batteries for my remote, but

You need to re-assign to the Wii. When you first bought it you pressed the button on the front of the Wii to configure controllers, then the controller buttons to find the Wii. When you change batteries you need to repeat this process as the 'memory' of the controller to the Wii has been wiped

My handsets wont sincronise with the system, I have fitted new batteries

Follow this procedure:
1. Turn the Wii console on and wait until the "Health & Safety" screen appears (don't press A).
2. 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.
3. 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.

I had the same problem. I called wii support (1800-255-3700) and they gave me the solution. Some new games include a wii update that must be installed before the game will work. Insert the disk. When the wii menu comes up point the wii remote at the spinning disc and click A. Follow the instructions for installing the update. Your game will work once the update completes.

Wii remote won't let me swing or box

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.
