Question about Nintendo Wii Console
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

Tips for a great answer:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.
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.
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.
