Hand sets do not seem to work

I have just re installed the Wii in my daughters bedroom. Everything seems fine but the handsets do not appear to work. The batteries in them are OK. I have lost the instructions and the installation suggests to me that there is a procedure but I don't remember it. Can you help ?

Re: Hand sets do not seem to work

Press and hold the sync button on the Nintendo Wii remote. While holding the sync button, go over to the Nintendo Wii, and and press and hold the sync button. Wait for a few seconds, and then test the Nintendo Wii remote.

Wii remote cursor hand not appearing on the screen

I am not sure but I had the same problem when I got a second remote hand set and my kids knew the answer. I first thing I would do is to ensure that you have new batteries in the handsets. Secondly there should be a small button inside the handset. I think that you need to push it to synchronize the handset to the Wii base station. I hope that helps

Installing netflix disc for wii, asking for pin #?

There shouldn't be a pre-set number and if there is, it's usually 0000 or 1234, depending on how many spaces it gives you. I too, have the Wii disc for my Netflix but never bothered with the parental controls. Everything seems to work fine though.

Another thing it could be, is that it is asking for a pin number of your own. First try putting in a pin of your choosing before trying my first suggestion.

I upgraded my wii to 4.0 and installed the homebrew channel.Everything seemed to work great,so I tried to play guitar hero 3 the game shows up in disc channel but when you click start the screen goes black...

You might want to try a Loader instead of the Wii's disc channel. Are you playing original games or backups? You might have broke the Homebrew channel with the 4.0 upgrade. Check out this Wii homebrew set of tutorials to see if it'll help

Hand icon wont appear on the Wii main menu

Well, mabey your sensor bar settings are out of wack. You might have your sensor bar set to above TV but you actualy have it below. To fix it, I would move the sensor bar to the opposite position, go into settings and chanage the sensor bar settings to the way you want. then put the sensor bar back where you want it.

Handsets not responding.The lights light up at first & then go out.Options appear on screen. Have tried new batteries & checked the black receiving bar is working (on a friends system). Has the syncro

Hi there heather.

it seems that your synchronisation could have been lost, bear in mind some Wireless connections such as that of the wii can be scrambled/lose single if there are alot of electrical appliances in close proximity, as this messes with the wireless signals being transmitted.

you may just need to Re-Sync your Wiimotes which is simple. on the underside of the mote, inside the battery compartment there is a small red Button, pressing this whilst pressing the sync button on your nintendo wii should successfully sync each mote to your wii allowing you to play :)

hope this helps

Handset goes off as soon as I press A to start a game

Make sure that the batteries that you have are good. Sometimes even newly charged batteries will not have enough juice to run the wii controller because the batteries themselves are defective.
