Nigel,

We have the same problem. I have tried dozens of different ways to re-sync the secodn wiimote and as soon as the game starts; or when you return to it from the Home menu, the second wiimote goes off. Did you ever get this resolved??

    From the home screen press the Wii home button, go to connections and follow instructions to reconnect the 1st and 2nd remotes.

    Hope this helps!!

How do you connect a rock candy remote to Wii


Make sure you have fresh batteries in it. the little red button under the battery cover is the sync button. Push it and you should see the 4 blue lights flash on the remote. Push the sync button on the Wii (red button under the front flap) and wait a few seconds. The remote light should stop flashing and one of the lights should light, indicating which remote it is (1-4) Repeat as necessary or change the order of button pushing if it doesn't work the second time.

Remotes won't connect. put in new batteries, tried pressing red button in side remotes, all 4 blue lights are flashing on both remotes


Hello kellyanne_ma,
The Wii must be searching for remotes before one will connect. If you are trying to connect controller #1 (meaning there are none connected) and it fails, there may be a problem with your Wii.
First, remove power from the Wii by unplugging it. Wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once powered on and you see the health/safety information press and hold the red SYNC button on your Wii for 20 seconds.
Now press the Sync button on the controller and while the blue lights are flashing, press the Sync button on the Wii.
Hopefully, that will connect the controller! If it does not, you may need to contact Nintendo!

Wii remote wont connect ?


if it wont sync after using the red buttons then its just bad batteries from the sound of it or the remote has gone bad.

Try fresh batteries or let the rechargeables charge (assuming they arent bad)

The remotes flash then switch off, i have synced them again but still wont work.


start with the basics FRESH BATTERIES:

1) Fresh batteries should be in each.

2) Turn on the Wii with Player 1's remote or the button on the console.

3) Open your SD Card cover and press Sync. Very shortly afterward, press the red button on your P1 Remote (in the battery cover). Lights will blink and then will be showing a light in the first square, denoting the connection is complete and it's P1.

4) Do the same as Step 3 for the P2 remote. For the P2 remote, after the blinking, then the second square will be lit, meaning it's P2.



That is the Standard Connection. It is tied to the Wii until it's re-done.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After you attempt to synch them (pressing the red synch button on the wii, followed by the red synch button underneith the battery cover of the wiimote), make sure the wii is turned on and press the buttons 1 and 2 on the wiimote at the same time to have it search for recognized bluetooth devices (ie. your wii).

found this article too.

this should help you.. leave a testimonial if I helped.
The first thing I did while the Wii was turned on was that I tried to sync the Wii Remote by pressing the "1" + "2" buttons at the same time. The lights at the bottom of the controller flashed for about 30 seconds, but never received the signal from the Wii. Bummer.

The next step I followed was to hit the sync button on the Wii Remote (Wiimote). Then immediately opened the cover for the opening where the SD Flash card goes and pressed the sync button on the Wii. 30 seconds of flashing, and no result. Double bummer.

Finally, after some Google searching, I found a couple of message boards where people had to press the Sync button on the Wii (not the Wii Remote) for 15 seconds to reset it. I performed this step and then pressed sync on the Wii Remote. The 2nd controller synced up almost immediately. What a relief!

Apparently the problem lies in the fact that the Bluetooth technology being used has to be manually synced in order for it to connect to the Wii. It does not make much sense at all. You would think they could be pre-authorized in order to minimize time and ease of use. In addition, you really have to be careful that your other controllers are turned on while syncing or else the controller that you are trying to put on channel 3 might end up on channel 2! This happened to me on one occasion.

Good luck with getting your Wiimotes in sync with your Wii. Hopefully this helped!

Our new controller wont sync up with our Wii, why? put new batteries in pressed the sync button and the blue lights just keep flashing, is there a special place we have to sit or place the remote?


Did you press the red sync button on the wii where a SD card goes? You press that once then the wii remote sync button once, wait while it flashes then in a few seconds it should be synced in.

On one of the wii controllers all i get is 4 blue lights flashing then nothing


The Wii-mote probably just needs to be synchronized to your Wii. Open the battery compartment on the back of your remote and open the front SD card slot on your Wii. Push the red SYNC button on the Wii and then the little red button on your Wii-moteand it should sync to your console.

The problem where the lights would flash on and then go off happened to me also.

I pressed the 'sync' button on the wii remote and the red 'sync' button on the console at the same time for about 10 seconds. Let go of the buttons and then the lights should flash and light 1 on the remote came up!!!

Hope it works for all 'ya!

Setting up 2nd wii remote


Greetings mlsaenz7,

You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
Thank you,

Dort
