Bought a new will remote but it doesn't work.


Check the battery levels. You can do this by pressing A. If all 4 lights flash on and off, your batteries are completely charged. 3 lights, 2 lights, and 1 light signify 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 battery levels. If lights don't flash, replace/insert batteries.
If it's not working with your console, open up the battery cover and the flip lid on the front of the console. (If it's a Wii U, you don't need to open the flip lid.) In both places, there is a red button. (On Wii U, it's next to the flip lid.) Press both red buttons at the same time. (Your Wii will need to be powered on.) The Wii Remote will continuously flash lights until it either receives a sync signal or about a minute has passed; whichever comes first. If you've pressed the buttons and your remote is still flashing, press the button on the console again. Once the remote is synced, the flashing lights will turn into a single light; the placement of the light will vary depending on how many remotes are signed into the Wii.
*Note* Once your remote is synced, you simply need to press A to sign back in if your remote turns off.
If all of the above steps were followed, and your remote is still not functioning, contact the manufacturer. Brands such as Nintendo and Nyko are usually okay, but generics like GameStop aren't the best. It's often easiest to return it and buy a different brand.

Charging pad the remote batteries are dead, won't hold charge anymore...


Sadly that's how they make the new rechargable batteries for controllers. You are supposed to recycle that and buy new. Luckily you can find chargers for the wii very cheap nowadays. I have used a few different chargers and have found the Nyko brand ones are junk so steer clear of those. The Duracell induction chargers however work very nicely. You just set the wii remote down on the charge pad and it charges fairly quickly. My kids run around and even if the remote shifts a bit it will continue charging. Hope this helps!

Wii remote not working


Have you ever used batteries in your wii remote because as soon as you put normal batteries in the wii remote instead of charging the rechargeable batteries that come with the remote then you have to use batteries. I have done this now i need to use AA batteries in my remote. If you haven't and you just have the battery pack then make sure to see if it charges on them charging things and if it don't charge then you need to take it to a repair shop. Hope this helped :)

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    Hi there,

    Hi there,

    Wii Remote Not Turning On



    Likely cause: It appears that the batteries in the Wii Remote are flat and no longer hold enough charge to start the Wii Remote.


    How to fix: Remove the back cover of the remote and replace batteries.


    If you are still having problems, contact Nintendo and they will help you get to the root of your problem - Nintendo Wii Support

    Our wii is not responding to the remote controls although they ARE BRAND NEW.


    Have you synced your Wii remotes to the Wii yet? To sync, you have to take the battery cover off of the wii remote and the little vertical rectangle door on the front of the Wii and hold both red buttons. Your Wii remotes should work afterwards.

    Wii turns on but has no picture or sound


    You could try resetting it by taking out the motherboard battery.

    It is on the bottom at the back under a plastic cover.

    You may need a tri wing screwdriver to remove the cover.

    Try taking this out for a couple of hours and it will reset it.

    Hope this helps,
