Wii controller wil not power on

We have two controllers and both have been working. Got a dual charger for Christmas and thought it was great. Now one of the controllers will not power on. Tried the old batteries, new batteries, and just letting it stay in the charger with its battery pack. Nothing works. ANY IDEAS?

Well sound like the controller got damaged from the aftermarket charger or batteries if the other one work fine then just call nintendo and tell them they should give you a return number so you can go switch it out with a new one at a store

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    How to Sync Your Wii Controlers


    I thought that everyone knew about this but from a lot of questions, some people don't. When you can't get your controllers to work by pushing the 1 and 2 buttons, you may need to sync the controllers.

    In the front of your Wii, there is a flap. If you open the flap, there is an SD card slot and a red button. Also, on your Wii controllers, when you remove your battery cover, there is also a red button. If you hold both red buttons for a while, the controller should sync and should be able to work.

    Syncing a controller is very useful when you need to use your controlers on a different Wii. When you use your controllers on a different Wii, they will not work unless you sync them.

    We have a Nintendo Wii and no the remote controls aren't working with the console. Ihave tried replacing batteries. Do I need new remote controls or a new charger for the controls?


    If your remotes are showing power lights at the bottom when you press buttons, then you may have a problem with the sensor bar that receives signals from the remotes.
    First, try unplugging and plugging back in the sensor bar to the Wii. If it still doesn't work, the next step would be to replace the sensor bar. You can find them just about anywhere you buy Wii accessories and they are fairly cheap.

    Need instruction on how to get an iconcepts wil/gamecube controller to work on my wii.


  • 1 Gather up any GameCube controllers that you want to use with your Wii.
  • 2 Open up the top of your Wii. If you unhook the latch on the very top of the system there should be a sort of secret compartment that holds four controller ports and two memory card slots.
  • 3 Plug your GameCube controller into the ports located in the top of the Wii. If you're plugging in more than one, don't worry about attaching them in any particular order.
  • 4 Load any GameCube memory cards that you would like to use into the memory card slots located next to the controller ports on top of the Wii.
  • 5 Feed the GameCube game you would like to play into the disc slot on the Wii

    Problem with wii controller charger


    Sounds like you broke your remote to me. did the batteries leak on your remote? If so, try to clean the contacts on the remote (the spring on one side and the flat one on the other). You may need to use a nail file to scrape off the gunge.

    Now, why did this happen? Did you put rechargable batteries in your wiimote before you put it on the charger? And if so, did yo put the CORRECT TYPE of rechargables? There's a big difference between nickle cadmium (Ni-CD), Nickle Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), and Rechargable Alkaline. Putting the wrong type of battery, or a non-rechargable battery into the wrong recharger causes leaking, explosion and fire... as the charger and the batteries warn you of all over.
