Unplug your system for a minute or two. Mine had this problem too. Called nintendo and they told me to do that andtell them my wii system serial number.

Remotes won't connect. put in new batteries, tried pressing red button in side remotes, all 4 blue lights are flashing on both remotes

Hello kellyanne_ma,
The Wii must be searching for remotes before one will connect. If you are trying to connect controller #1 (meaning there are none connected) and it fails, there may be a problem with your Wii.
First, remove power from the Wii by unplugging it. Wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once powered on and you see the health/safety information press and hold the red SYNC button on your Wii for 20 seconds.
Now press the Sync button on the controller and while the blue lights are flashing, press the Sync button on the Wii.
Hopefully, that will connect the controller! If it does not, you may need to contact Nintendo!

We cant get the wii remotes to work for our wii


If both of your remotes are not syncing to the system you will have to get your bluetooth replaced. You can either send this in for repair or do it yourself.

Heres what it looks like

Goodluck and I really hope I helped!

Need help programming wii console remote

take off the battery compartment for the Wii Remote, and you should see a small red sync button. While the Wii is on, open up the flap for the SD cards, and you should see a red sync button on the Nintendo Wii. While holding the red sync button for the Wii Remote, press and hold the red sync button on the Nintendo Wii. After a few seconds, put the battery cover back on, and test the Wii Remote. Have any questions, feel free to ask. Use the add more details part in your question to ask any more questions. Thank you and have a good day.
