Sounds like the remotes aren't sync'd up with the Wii in a way to turn it on. I had a strange occurrence with ours where only 1 Wiimote (ha!) out of 4 would turn on the Wii with the power button. Try following the instructions to program the Wii to the Wiimotes again and see if that works. Also try holding the power button on the remotes a little bit longer.

I don't recall but you push the red button behind a hidden cover on the front of the Wii and then the button on the Wii controller behind the battery cover.

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!

My wii remote wont I guess connect it just keep flashing the lights at the bottom anytime I hit anything on the wii remote or try to sync it


Hold both Sync buttons for a period of 5 seconds, then let go. If this does not work, replug everything on your wii and try again. Make sure your Wii is on when syncing.

On my wii remote at the bottom of the remote belong 1&2 them lights all flashing and it will not pick up we change the batties still not working can you help me..


  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
  3. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).

This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

Wii board


Make sure that you have synced the board to the wii (similar to a controller). You have to take the battery cover off the board and push the sync button. The blue light will start flashing. From there you need to open the front cover of your wii under the power button.

From there you start up wii fit and it will prompt you to turn on your board. You should get a solid blue light. If you don't, you may need to try syncing again.

The controller is not powering up with new batteries


If your controller does not power up then it is because it has not been synced to the console.

I do not know what system you have so I can not tell you how to do this.

For instance, If you have a Wii, you need to turn on the wii, open the battery cover on the controller. Press the little red button. Then open the little door on the wii where you put the memory card and hit that red button. that should connect the controller to the Wii.

For Xbox 360:
1) Turn on 360 (ring of light) and controller (Start or Guide button).
2) Press the Connect button on the 360.
3) Press the Connect button that's at the top of the controller, next to the slot for a charging cord.
4) Everything spins and flashes, and syncs up.

If you have PS3 then:

Plug your controller into the console with the usb cable, then hit the PS button. that will sync it to the PS3 then you can unplug it.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya!!

My wii remote doesn't work!!!


Do you play with the second controller before? If you not the second controller must "bind" to the console. Open the cover in front of the Wii and press the red button there and then press the red button on the controller.

Remote dont work. lights just flash. tried to sync did not work. Bought a new remote and went to sync it now it is doing the same thing the other remote did> Any suggesions?


Basic Question: Did you set up the sensor bar?

I'm assuming you follow the instructions to plug in the Wii and to attach the sensor bar to the console and position the sensor bar so it is either below or above the television.

The Wii remote flashes (more specifically the bottom row of four lights that indicate which player each remote belong to flashes) when a button is pushed on the control while the Wii is off.

If the Wii is on and simply sleeping (as evident by a blinking yellow light on the power button on the console) pushing the power button the control should turn on both the console and the remote. Be sure to aim the remote at the console when "waking" the Wii up and at the sensor bar once the Wii Menu loads. The remotes automatically turn off with lack of interaction.

To recap: Your remotes sound to be working fine. I would assume it might be a problem with the interaction between your console and the remotes or the setup of the console. The Wii Information Guide has pictures and pretty clear connection instructions that should help fix your problem.

If everything is set up correctly as per the instructions and your system still does not interact your sensor bar may be faulty or your console as I believe you're remotes work fine.
