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.

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.

How do I charge my remotes with the docking station?

I have a T2+ remote sys and need a manual. as a start I need to know how to charge.

The remote comes with a charging dock, if you did not get this you can order one from RTI (952) 253-3136.

The T2+ uses a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. This battery does not exhibit any type of "Memory Effect" from being charged too often. Since the T2+ can safely be charged after each use, a docking station is included for convenience. If left out of the docking station, the T2+ will remain in sleep mode for 1 or 2 months before shutting down. At that point the battery must be recharged. The T2+ Docking Station can be placed on a flat surface such as a shelf or table, or it can be mounted to a wall using the mounting holes on the back of the unit. If the T2+ battery capacity is reduced to approximately one hour of remaining run-time, a low battery icon will appear in the upper left corner of the display The docking station LED illuminates to indicate a charge in progress. The LED will turn off when the battery in the unit is fully charged.A fully discharged battery will take approximately 2-4 hours to completely re-charge.The T2+ can remain in the docking station indefinitely without damage to the battery.

My wii remotes do not charge on the docking station

Do you have the Rechargeable batteries for the Wii-Motes in? (Special)
If not, Try wiggling them around and see if the light comes on, or, they may already be fully charged, Also, make sure the charging dock is plugged in. You'll need to remove the jackets the controllers are in to charge them.If you still can't get them to charge, I'd recommend checking Nintendo, Or the manual for the charging dock. (It is a charging dock, Right? Because there is a dock that goes on the Wii that's NOT supposed to charge them)

What is the lifespan of the Wii remote? Having problems is it the remote or docking station. Have had it for two years is it time to replace?

Hi there,
Normally, the Wii remote will work properly unless dropped on the floor or banged against any hard surface. The Sensor connected to your Wii can sometimes end up dying because of normal use. This can be purchased for a mear 10 dollars at any Wal-Mart. If the sensor is not the problem, make sur that you are at the same level as your sensor when playing games. If you happen to be higher or lower, your Wii remote may end up moving unvolantarily around for no reason. The Wii remote is sturdy and has never broken up for me for the past 2 ½ years. Does the problem arise only when you use the docking station battery? If so, the battery would be the problem. I have stopped using this battery because of problems like these. I would recommend recharable Ni-hM batteries instead.
Hope this helps,

When charging the wii remote should the docking station be lit up blue or red

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.

There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way:
1. Charger is the problem.
2. The docking station is the broken.
3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge.
4. The actual unit is the problem.
It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen.
Let us do some troubleshooting first:
1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken.
2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken.
3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken.
4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged.
5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.

12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
