My player 1 remote is lost . but i got a new remote how can I set the new one

You need to get your new wii mote and flip it over look at where the batteries go see the little red sync button. Now look at the front of the wii it has a little door on the front open that and you will see a little red sync button now press the console sync button first then press the wii mote sync button and then press A or any button and that should sync it.

No connection from remote to screen

Your sensor bar is definitely burned out, you can get a new wireless one at wal-mart for $20. Often wii sensor bars burn out because people put it directly on the tv instead of using the stand, the tv gets hot and the LED lights in the sensor bar burn out. If you want make sure that it's the sensor bar that's broken, get a video camera and video tape the sensor bar while it's plugged in and the wii is on, if you can't see four LED lights on each side then it's broken.

I lost my player 1 wii remote my others don't work.what do i do

open the battery cover on the wii remote you want to make player 1 press the red button while it is facing the sensor bar. Then open the memory card door on the front of the wii and press the red button on the top. the remote should flash a few times then it will be your new player 1 remote. You can only do this if you have 2 AA batteries in the remote. It will not work with the rechatgeable batterie packs because the remote must have power while you re-synch it.

Lost wii remote and need to know howtogetotherwiiremotestowork

When the Wii is on, you should be able to go into the menu to reset the remotes. Otherwise when you power them on press the home button and it should give you the option of resetting them as well.

Wii remote not working

it sounds like it could be faulty but I got this info from nintendo's website and at the bottom there is a customer service phone number that will help with any other problems relating to remotes for the wii

Still having problems? If the basic guidelines above did not solve your problem, the more specific information below may help.
  • Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common:
    Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues.
      Try these steps!
    1. Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.

    2. Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.

    3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
      1. With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.

      2. Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.

      3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).

      4. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

      5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

    If you are still unable to get the Wii console to recognize your Wii Remote(s) after carefully following the steps above, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.
I know this says if your console does not recognise your remote, but they should be able to help you with your problem too

Make Wii remote#2 remote#1!

You need to sync it . . . under the flap on the console where you insert memory cards, there is a red sync button, press that on the console, then on the remote, under the battery cover, there is also a red sync button, press that just after you done it on the console and it should sync.

WII remote

Hey, maybe your Wii is not sensing the remotes movement if there is too much light in the room. Try to sinc the remote to the console and then go to the options and check the sensitivity and adjust if necessary.
