I think you need to sync the remotes. Try this. Undo the battery cover and you will see a red button. turn on youre Wii and if you look at the front of the Wii you will se a littile panal. open it and you wil find another red button. Press it and press the one on the remote.

How to fix 'stuck' Wii remotes

There have been many people asking for help with 'stuck' wii remotes. The Wii picks it up and menus can be navigated but swinging on games such as Tennis will not work. This problem arises from the accelerometer seizing up/getting stuck.

The easy way to fix this is to hold your Wii remote in your hand and sharply tap it on all sides against your other hand. This should not break your Wii remote because the accelerometer is the only moving part in it. If this does not work then the accelerometer will have completely seized up or the connections to the accelerometer are broken. This can only really be solved by (occasionally this works) smacking your remote extremely hard if it seized up, opening it yourself and testing out your DIY hardware skills or sending it in for repair.
Failing all this you could just go and buy yourself a new one!

Hope this helps

Remote dont work. lights just flash. tried to sync did not work. Bought a new remote and went to sync it now it is doing the same thing the other remote did> Any suggesions?

Basic Question: Did you set up the sensor bar?

I'm assuming you follow the instructions to plug in the Wii and to attach the sensor bar to the console and position the sensor bar so it is either below or above the television.

The Wii remote flashes (more specifically the bottom row of four lights that indicate which player each remote belong to flashes) when a button is pushed on the control while the Wii is off.

If the Wii is on and simply sleeping (as evident by a blinking yellow light on the power button on the console) pushing the power button the control should turn on both the console and the remote. Be sure to aim the remote at the console when "waking" the Wii up and at the sensor bar once the Wii Menu loads. The remotes automatically turn off with lack of interaction.

To recap: Your remotes sound to be working fine. I would assume it might be a problem with the interaction between your console and the remotes or the setup of the console. The Wii Information Guide has pictures and pretty clear connection instructions that should help fix your problem.

If everything is set up correctly as per the instructions and your system still does not interact your sensor bar may be faulty or your console as I believe you're remotes work fine.

Controllers glitching on the tv

We used to have the same problem. We have our TV in the corner of the rec room, with windows on either side of the TV. Turns out that the sunlight coming in through the windows was interfering with the functionality of the Wii remotes. All we had to do was hang some heavy drapes to close while we are playing and that was the end of the problem. If you have any bright sources of light which might relfect in the Wii remotes or the Wii remote bar (receiver of the Wii remotes), turn them off, or block the light.

Thanks for using the FixYa Forums!

Unable to sync Balance Board and its knocking the remotes out too

When you are prompted to press the sync buttons you just have to press and release just once the sync button on the console and then on the board. Do not hold the buttons in because you just end up un syncing everything!

Wii system stuck on the first screen and the hand is not come up

Are the Wii Remotes Batteries dead? This can be a common problem as well as Wii Remotes becoming unsynced to the Wii. To resync the Wii remote:

1. Open The Small Door on the front of the Wii and Take the Battery Cover off of the Wii Remote.

2. Press the small red "Sync" button on the Wii and then Press the Small Red Button on the Wii Remote.

You should he a "beep" through your TV speakers that confirm your Wii Remote have been reconnected.

I hope this Helps. Take Care. =)
