We downloaded Mario Bros (original) on the Wii It takes the original Nintendo controller to operate, but how do we plug the original Nintendo controller into the Wii ???

Original controller as in the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller? The NES controller is not officially supported on the Wii, however an adapter exists that goes into the GameCube controller ports which can be purchased at RetroPort. The other control methods the game supports are Wiimote (turned on it's side which acts just like a NES controller), GameCube controller, and the Classic Controller. Hope this helps!

Wii system was has power etc. Handheld control has fresh batteries and lights on face of controller do light up when attempts at pressing various buttons. When Wii is turned on-screen on TV shows Wii is...

Press and hold the the red button under the flap on the wii for 30 seconds this will clear all pairings of controllers. Then press the red buton under the wii again and let go immediately now open the battery case of the controller and press that red button uner there and the controller will pair again and it will work the wii

Controller all four lights come on controller cant get it to work will one controller play on second unit have new batterys

Have You Tried syncing it? all you have to do is look at the front of your wii console and flip open the little door. it will have a small red button then where you stick the battery in on the controller you will see another red button, hold both red buttons down at the same time. (the one on the wii, and the one on the wii controller) and then your controller should work properly

Wii Controller doesn't work

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, t fix your problem make sure the controllers are on then hold the sync button on the console for approx 5 sec then let go and then hold the sync button on a controller for approx 5 sec., same goes for the other controller, press the console sync button first for every new controller added. I hope this helps you, if this doesnt work then thre is a issue with either the console sync system or the controller. Please remember feedback as I am new and trying to work my way to a higher rep. Thank You
