2nd Wii Remote will only not connect in Link's Crossbow Training

Here's the problem. Whenever, I try to connect my remotes prior to playing Link's Crossbow Training, the 2nd will never connect. It will flash, and seemingly start to connect but then turns back off. It is not the remote, because it will not connect regardless of which one is the second or the first. It connects immediately with every other game and with no games at all, and I've reset the syncs many times, and still nothing works. If I connect them prior to loading the game, they shut off before the game's main screen appears. I played it a few weeks ago with no problems whatsoever. Thank you, any help would be appreciated.

Re: 2nd Wii Remote will only not connect in Link's...

This is a ONE player game. It won't connect because the Wii isn't looking for any additional controllers. It's not a problem.

You have to go in your Wii settings menu and then select the sensitivity menu, there you can adjust the sensitivity of the Wiimote as you please.

2nd wii remote is slow compared to 1st one, especially when bowling. Purchased a 2nd remote so my fiance & I can play against each other. Only problem is that the 2nd remote is "slower". It is quite...

Have you tried adjusting the sensitivity on the Wiimote?
Go into your Wii's System Settings and try to adjust the sensitivity using that Wiimote. This could help.

Wii Remote Problems!!

This is factory default with the Nintendo Wii, Try simply removing the batteries when done, OR!, which I do, is hold my hand over the top of the WiiMote and then press the power button, this prevents the Wii from getting the remote's instruction to power down, the remote thinks the Wii got it and then shuts down. Good Luck!

Cursor moves spoardically across screen

# Check that the Wii sensor bar is on or below the centre of the TV,and there is no obstruction with clear line of view between it and the Wiimote
# Go in Wii settings and check there are only 2 dots visible. If yes, crank up the Sensor bar sensitivity to 5 with 2 dots still visible, else adjust it till the 2 dots become stable at whichever sensitivity
# If there are more than 2 dots, there is some IR source in the rooms which is disturbing the wireless connection between the Wiimote and the sensor bar, so that source has to be removed from the room

Nothing else works, then resync the remote. Remove the batteries, wait couple of inutes, reinsert, and resync through the 2 red buttons.

Connecting 2nd remote

There are 2 ways to connect remotes on Wii. The way that the remotes sync permanently to a Wii system and the second one that connects the remote temporarily.
To connect the remotes pernanently, open the flap on the front of the Wii and press the red sync button. Then take the remotes and press the buttons 1 and 2 at the same time.
Do the same with the other controllers

The second way can be done via the Home menu. Go to home menu pressing the home button and then point the remote to the bottom of the screen (where a wii remote is iconized) Then go to the synchronization menu to synchronize the remotes. Press 1 and 2 of the remotes to get synchronized.

The time you press the buttons on the remotes determines the player assigned to it. For example, the first remote you synchronize is the first player, the second is the second player etc.

Also, I strongly advice you to READ THE MANUAL
seriously... do it.

Setting up 2nd wii remote

Greetings mlsaenz7,

You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
Thank you,

Go Ahead. Use Us.

2nd wii remote will not connect with mario play 8

We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M

This is from :

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 below).

    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.
