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 ? Thanks

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.

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
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 WAS TOLD THE PROBLEM WAS PROBABLY THE BATTERY. AS THE BATTERIES ARE THREE YEARS OLD AND CONTINUE TO POWER THE UNIT I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S THAT. IT STATES THAT THE BATTERY SHOULD LAST ONE YEAR AND WOULD INDICATE "LOW BATTERY". THE PHONES ARE ALWAYS IN THE CRADLES AND POWERED UP. I TESTED THE OUTSIDE LINE AND FOUND NO NOISE. AS THE BATTERIES ARE $20 EACH, I BOUGHT A NEW PHONE FOR $10. SINCE THEN, I HAVE RE-CONNECTED THE OLD UNIDEN PHONES, BOTH IN MY HOME OFFICE AND IN MY BEDROOM AND THEY SEEM TO WORK JUST FINE WITH A MINIMUM OF NOISE. THIS ALL OCURRED AFTER SEVERE SNOW, WIND AND RAIN STORMS.
THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE.
I had the same problem - until today. Seems that the phone jack wiring in my living room needs repairing. Receiving and making calls is no problem, but the Caller ID is first to go (according to phone service provider). I tried out the phone in the bedroom, and the Caller ID shows up fine. Serviceman coming tomorrow to fix the L/R wiring.
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.
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 :)
