Wiimote buttons not working

In mid zelda the plus and minus buttons stopped working, in addition you can't swing the remote to swing the sword. But everything works on other games, what could be wrong?

Wii remotes no long respond (one or more remotes) - sync lost

Lately after firmware updates or power loss the Wii will un-pair from the Wiimotes. Some players don't know how to solve this problem. They assume it is the Wii or the batteries in the Wiimote but when they switch them or power off the unit, this doesn't fix it. Reason is that the Wiimotes need to be re-paired (re-synced). This Tip will explain how to do this.

1) In the front of the Wii there is a door. Inside this door you will find the SD card slot. next to the SD card slot there is a RED button with the word "Sync" on it. This is used to put the Wii in bluetooth discovery mode.

2) Take the first remote and remove the battery cover. Below the batteries is a small Red dot button. This is the Wiimote's connection button. First turn on the Wii then press and hold the Wii's Sync button for a few seconds to initiate Discovery Mode. Press and hold the Wiimote's button for a few seconds until the "Player Number" lights on the bottom of the front of the remote blink. The connection is complete when the Wiimote's "Player 1" light goes solid and the Wii will advance to the menu.

3) To re-sync (re-pair) the additional Wiimote's. Repeat the process but this time leave the Wii turned on. With each remote the next player light should turn on. Do this until each remote is synced.

Sometimes my charecters start walking by themselves and the remote wont work or the golf club wont swing

Try replacing the batteries in your WiiMote. It sounds like the power level is low so the system and WiiMote are dropping connection intermittently.

Hands wont show on screen/minus and plus only work.

That means that your controller is successfully transmitting button presses to the wii via wifi, but not its infrared beam. The problem is most likley your sensor bar (you could confirm this by trying a different wiimote).
Another way to get some info on this problem is to examine the tip of your wiimote through a digital camera (it allows you to see the ir light). If there's no light, then it's probably a bad wiimote and not the sensor.

The big boss at the end of the game

Haha, ok... When the battle begins, Princess Zelda, who comes to help out Link, will instruct Link to attack Ganondorf as much as he can, as she covers his back with the Hero's Bow. Ganondorf will immediately leap on you with his twin swords swinging. Jump to the side and watch as Princess Zelda lands a light arrow in him. Rush in and deliver a swift combo attack with the Master Sword. Ganondorf is very strong, therefor it will take more the this one combo attack to defeat him.Fighting Ganondorf is similar to fighting the Mighty Darknuts, only Ganondorf has two swords and is much faster. You won't land any strikes while you're standing face to face with Ganondorf: you must rely on the parry attack! Follow up a successful parry attack by slashing away at Ganondorf's backside, and then move away quickly before he rises again. Continue to distract him while Princess Zelda fires Light Arrows at him. After three hits from Princess Zelda's Light Arrows, Ganondorf realizes that he shouldn't take the youthful duo so lightly. Ganondorf will rish towards Princess Zelda, and knock her unconscious. Link is on his own for the time being. Assign the Elixir Soup to an Item Use Button to have it handy incase things get awry. Continue to fight Ganondorf with the Master Sword by waiting for the perfect time to parry, and don't forget to use the shield to deflect some of his vicious attacks.
Once you land your third parry attack on Ganondorf, Princess Zelda will awaken. Seeing once again that he is outnumbered, Ganondorf will step up his abilities to point where he is virtually impossible to hit. Zelda will eventually sense this and tell you to deflect the Light Arrows at Ganondorf with the Mirror Shield. Princess Zelda will begin firing the Light Arrows at you. Hold the R button continuously to keep the shield in the proper position, and move around so that Ganondorf gets caught in the crossfire with Princess Zelda. When you succeed with deflecting the Light Arrows at Ganondorf, rush in and perform a swift parry attack to bury the Master Sword into Ganondorf's forehead.

Hope this helped. Good luck on your game lol.

Ican't get how to use link's first sword in legend of zelda on the wii

It's simpal to use the sword in twilight princess. All you must do is shake the wii remote as if your link. On the nunchuck hold Z and move the direction of the stick to do verticle slices, horizontle slices, and stabs. Take your sword out, hold Z, and press A to do a jump strike

Wii Remote A/ B problem

I know this sounds silly, but be sure that you have fresh batteries in each Wiimote and that you have them in the right way.

Whenever you start up your Wii, the first Wiimote that you press a button on becomes controller number 1 and then subsequent Wiimotes are added in the order a button is pushed on them. SO, if you are thinking that you have remote 1 because that was the one that was remote 1 last night, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is so. Be sure that whenever you activate a Wiimote, the lights flash - 4 lights flashing mean strong battery, 1 light flashing means replace; when flashing stops, the number LED that is lit from the left denotes which remote you have. Make sure that is the same Wiimote that you select a game with, and make sure that is the one you press A&B together with to start the game.

If it doesn't work, shut everything down and start up using the other Wiimote. If that DOES work, then it could mean that your other Wiimote is not syncronized with the console. See the directions in your Wii manual on syncronizing additional Wiimotes (they're called Wii Remote by Nintendo) to your console.

Good luck. If all the above fails, you may want to go to and request customer service.
