Turn on the Wii console, when at the home screen press any button on the wii remote, if the lights on the wii remote remain dark then it needs new batteries.
If the lights all light up at the same time then stop this means you are not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time to sync, this will work if they have been synced before.
If your four lights still blink blue then you need to open the little compartment on the console that is right below the disc tray. Inside is a little red button, press the button. Now open your battery compartment on the wii remote and take out the battery, then press the red button inside. Put the battery back in and the controller should sync up. If you are still having trouble you will need to contact Nintenedo Technical Support.
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.
Make sure your Wii remote is obstruction and contamination free. If you're using the jacket, make sure it is securely in place on the Wii remote.
If these are not the problem, try a new set of batteries. Weak batteries often cause this problem.
If this also doesn't work, take the batteries out of the Wii remote, and wait for 1 full minute before reinserting them. Then wait a few seconds before pressing any buttons.
If none of these problems work, visit support.nintendo.com or call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.
Sounds like it's not synchronizing with the infrared bar. That might've come loose. Double check to make sure that's plugged into the Wii. If that's not connected the Wii Remote will not stay on because it's not connecting.
all you have to do is open the place where you put an sd card on your wii then open the battery cover on the wii remote and press the SYNC buttons at the same time and it WILL TURN ON trust me it works
make sure a combination of the 4 blue lights at the bottom of the remote are on (but not flashing, mind you). if they're not, this means that your wii remote isn't connected to your nintendo wii system yet. if when you press a button and none of the lights turn on at all, this means that there are no batteries in your wii remote. if it flashes, this means its trying to connect to your wii system. you might have to troubleshoot this a little bit. try to aim it at the bar that recognizes the wii signal (a separate piece that comes with the wii system).
hope this helps ;-)
Cursor not appearing Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make
sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading
the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game
to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the
cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the
Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii
Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii
Remote designated as "Player
1" to function.
Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions
and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer
lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.
Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then
opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button
to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii
Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength.
Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1)
or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting,
if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate.
