Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Wii remote wont work

The batteries are fresh and I know they should work because the remote will blink but not turn all the way on. I tried synching multiple times and it still didn't work. The remote has worked before this so I know it is not the remote that is messed up. I also tried turning it off and unplugging it and it STILL doesn't work! I actually have four remotes and I put fresh working batteries in all of them and tried turning them all on and it STILL DIDN'T WORK!!!! Please help!

Not quite sure what happened someone pushed the red sync button on the console now my controller wont work you know the finger that is suppose to display


You have to re-synch the remote with the system now.

Standard Mode Synchronization
Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote (how to).
  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
  3. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

Wii remotes turn each other off when anouther is turned on ie wii remote is on try to turn wii balnace board on turns wii remote off


That is quite unusual behaviour from your Wii. In the forst instance it would be a good idea to RE-SYNCHRONIZE your remotes and balance board with your Wii

    Standard Mode Synchronization

    Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote and that they are full/charged.

    Go to the Wii Menu. (Channel Grid)


  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.


  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.


  3. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.


  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

  5. This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

    (source http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/setupWiiRemote.jsp#Synch)


Option 2: There might be a glitch in the software which can often be fixed by re-downloading a fresh copy. Download the latest update by going to Settings->Console settings->Internet->Select your connection type->test connection. After the connection it will ask if you would like to perform a system update.
Option 3 If you are still having problems, try to identify if it is only happening when using a combination of some of the devices. Do you have the problem when the balance board is off?
There is also the possibility that there is a electrical fault with your wii. If the above does not help contact Nintendo support at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/
Good luck

Wii remote keeps going off by itself and does not come back on. all it does is blink


the Wii remote might not be synched to your console.
Try first pressing the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time while on your Wii's home screen. If the remote was synched before, this should re-sync it.
If not, open the small panel on the front of the Wii, just below the disc slot. There will be a red button there. There is also a red button inside of the battery compartment on your Wii remote. Press the button on the front of the Wii console first, then press the button on the Wii remote. The lights should blink a couple of times and one should remain blue. If so, it is synched and ready to use.
Hope this helped!

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).

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!

You might want to re-synch the remote to the console.

On the remote, the red synch button is where the batteries are installed.

The red synch button for the console is located behind the lip door where the SD card is inserted.

Press the synch buttons and you should be be ready to ROCK!

Problem getting wii GUITAR working with RockBand 2 after a resync


first of all you should make sure you have fresh batteries and then try the special resynch via the red dot like button on the inside of the controller (press it at the same time as the one in sd card slot) if that doesnt work try just moving closer to the wii at far distance the controller signal gets weak. if its not that then its a hardware issue

My wii remotes wont pick up signal blue lights flash then just go back out again


Hi, check the batter level and then try re-synching the remote's.

Here's instructions for both:

f4bc8924da.gif A fresh set of alkaline batteries should last, depending on amount and type of use, up to 35 hours. This can vary greatly based on certain factors, such as Wii Remote Speaker Volume, Rumble, battery quality and age, and type of game being played.

Important Note: If you are using rechargeable batteries, the only type of battery recommended are Nickel Metal Hydride batteries. When it comes to using rechargeable batteries, you must follow manufacturer guidelines for safety and proper usage. Failure to do so could cause damage to the Wii Remote and void the warranty.

There are two ways to check the Wii Remote's battery levels:

  • Remove the battery cover and press the Red "Sync" button. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength, with one light flashing indicating the lowest level.

    or

  • Use the HOME Menu to check battery level of each Wii Remote:

    1. Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.

    2. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Menu.

      rtemagicc_homesmall_02.gif.gif
    3. The battery level of all synced Wii Remotes is displayed along the bottom. Four bars indicates a full charge, with one being the lowest charge.

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
  3. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).

My wii remot can turn on and i can push a and b but the wii remote wont work when i play baceball or boling. for exampol my avatar wont swing the bat when i play baceball.


Make sure the batteries are not worn down. If the sensor bar is in really bright light it will not work. Close the curtains so there is not lots of sunlight. Unplug the sensor bar and plug it back in again. You could try to re synch the remote, open up the wii remote battery pack and press the red button at the top once. Then quickly press the red button on the inside of the SD Card flap on the wii. If this problem persists try to get a new remote, or better contact customer services if these solutions don't work. Info is in the Wii manual.

Cannot synchronise the balance board


Make sure that the batteries in your Wiimotes are fresh. To know, when you start up the remote for the first time, the number of blue led lights blinking indicate battery life. With only one light blinking (or none), it's time to replace your batteries.
