Re: wii docking station

Try new (non chargeable) battery's and if they work then you have bad battery's, if they dont you have a problem with the remote or unit.

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.

  • 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.

    I have an energizer dock charginig system for my Wii remotes. and after a few minutes of inserting one of them, the red light begins flashing and it does not charge the remote. Model PL 7522

    I Sell the exact units at my shop and the great thing about them is its warranty they have a 2 year limited warranty on them go to for more info on this as well. this was taken from their website

    1. Should your charge station's lights start blinking before or after you have placed the Wii remote controllers, it may be an issue with the batteries and not the charge station itself. We recommend first that you switch the batteries around for each controller and place them to be charged again for a period of time. If this isolates the problem to the battery we can send a replacement battery pack to you. Should this not clear the problem and the blinking continues you could take the product back to the store or to send it back to us so that it can be exchanged for a replacement unit.
    2. If after being left in charge mode for a full charging cycle and the batteries do not fully charge, or hold a charge, then contact us for a replacement."

    hope that helps and please feel free to thumbs up if your satisfied or even better write a testimonial!!! thanks and good luck

    I haven't played my wii in a while and have just plugged it all in and my controllers are not working. They don't seem to be charging in the docking station, their individual docks are not lighting up...

    Yes they should light up blue when they are charging.
    Double check and make sure your docking station is still plugged in and turned on.

    Most Docking stations are third party accessories, meaning, they were not manufactured by Nintendo. Some of them do not work very well.

    If all else fails, remove the rechargeable battery pack from the Wii Remote and put regular AA batteries inside of it. The Wii Remote should work just fine.

    Personally, I prefer to use rechargeable AA batteries rather than charging packs or docking stations. The charge packs/docking stations just never seem to work as well as they're supposed to. The rechargeable AA's work great and they're much more versatile since they're not limited to use in the Wii.

    Turn my wii on and when it says press a it doesnt work so my remotes arnt working had them in charging dock all night and when i picked it up thismorning there are no light coming on

    If you try opening the front cover on your Wii you will see a little red button. Press this to re-associate controllers to the Wii. You may need to open the battery compartment on your remotes and press the little red button in those too.

    Hope this helps.

    I have two Wii remotes with rechargeable batteries that were working fine at first, but now one of the remotes won't even turn on or light up. I've tried re-syncing the remote, but it doesn't work.

    I called Nintendo and they said that the charging station most likely fryed my controller. Nintendo doesn't currently make any charging stations and recommends that if you want rechargable batteries, to buy the ones that come in a package and recharge in a seperate dock that doesn't stay inside the Wii remote. The charging stations that are out do say Wii on them, but they are not Nintendo approved and may cause problems like mine. They said to always look for the Nintendo seal of quality if you want a trustworthy product. As for me, I have returned my charging dock and the new remote.
