This is simple. Just open up the GC controller by unscrewing the screws on the back. When you get to the front, take the buttons out and clean them. If it still doesn't work, that means your button pad is torn and you will have to buy a new controller.

How do you use a Gamecube controller on the Wii ?

Assuming the Wii unit is situated vertically, look on the top of the unit. There should be two flaps. Lift them, and you will find plugs for four GameCube controllers and two GameCube memory cards. Plug in the controllers and go.

Bare in mind that only a very small number of Wii games actually use GameCube controllers. The controller slots are primarily for playing GameCube games on the Wii, which the Wii can do right out of the box, provided you have the controllers and memory cards.

I have a Pelican dance pad compatible with Gamecube/XBox/Playstation DDR games. Plugging into port 1 of the GC Port on my Wii, I can play DDR Hottest Party 1/2/3 with no problems in any mode, but it...

me too. i get this problem . i have a wii dance pad that has a gamecube connector , and i guess the DDR doesn't detect it as a dance pad , but as a gamecube controller . so think , you can't hold the nunchuck and the gamecube controller at the same time . so i guess we need a wireless dance pad for the nunchuck to work as well .

My gamecube will turn on to set the settings, after I set them I put in a disc and then the power shuts off. I have two sets of power cords I tried them both and it does the same thing with each of them.

  • System settings were lost:
    You need to reset the time and date from the Nintendo GameCube Main Menu. To access the Main Menu, turn the power ON while holding down the A button on the controller. Follow these steps to reset the time and date:
    1. From the Main Menu Screen, go to the Calendar Screen by pushing RIGHT on the Control Stick.
    2. Press the A Button to display Calendar Menu choices of Date or Time.
    3. Use the Control Stick (UP or DOWN) to highlight your menu item and press the A Button to select your choice.
    4. Use the Control Stick (LEFT or RIGHT) to highlight the number you want to change, then (UP or DOWN) to adjust the value.
    5. Press the A Button to accept your choice.
    6. Press the B Button to return to the Calendar Menu or the Main Menu.
    7. Pressing the B Button before accepting your choice with the A Button will return you to the Calendar Menu without changing the settings.
    If the same error continues to happen, you will need to have your system repaired as it is likely you have an internal battery malfunction. Please use our convenient repair options.

    Second remote will not recognize the wii mario kart. Second remote will work with all other wii games, except for Mario Kart.

    Had the same problem last night.... Turn off the wii system by unplugging , wait a couple of seconds and plug back in. Next, the front of the wii has a pocket that opens, there is a red button. Put the disc to mario kart in the wii once you see the federal regs push and hold the red button on the wii for 15 seconds then once this 15 seconds is up with the controllers battery case open push the red button to the original controller. All of lights will flash and then stop. Push the red button on the wii console again just once. Then push the red button on the second remote wait till all lights stop flashing push the red button on the console and now they should be married to the wii system. Hope this helps----do you know how to get the volume? We don't have any volume

    Wii and Gamecube controllers do not work for Wii

    Perhaps this is a stupid question, but have you synced your controllers lately?

    Open the little drop over under the disk tray (the place where you put the SD card) and press and hold the red button in there, open the battery cover for the wiimote and press and hold that little red button. Wait till both the controller and the system respond. Basically, they have to find eachother again.

    I hope this helps.
