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 ?
Thanks

    My wii was working fine with the original handset that came with it.

    For whatever reason I have managed to lose that handset and aquire a different one in its place.

    This handset flashes etc but will not connect to the console.

    Have asked several people what the deal is but nothing is working.

    I've tried pressing the sync button on the console first and then the handset but no joy.

    Am I trying to correct this problem using the wrong procedure?

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.

WHEN I HIT THE TALK BUTTON, IT BEGINS WITH A SCRATCHY NOISE AND SOMETMES IT SQUEELS. I HAVE UNPLUGGED EVERYTHING FOR AN HOUR OR SO AND PLUGGED EVERYTHING BACK IN. THAN AS TOLD, I TRIED TO 'REREGISTER' BOTH...


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.

Caller ID Stopped Working


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.

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

Hand set goes dead


Next time it goes dead, try wiggling the cord where it plugs in the handset and where it plugs into the phone. If the problem goes away, you will need a new cord.

Hope this helps, and if so, please rate my advice.

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.

Base set fine - additional handsets dont work


The additional handset and the base need to "pair" first. Put the handset in the base cradle till you see the red light blinking. That's when they are paired.
