Remotes won't connect. put in new batteries, tried pressing red button in side remotes, all 4 blue lights are flashing on both remotes

Hello kellyanne_ma,
The Wii must be searching for remotes before one will connect. If you are trying to connect controller #1 (meaning there are none connected) and it fails, there may be a problem with your Wii.
First, remove power from the Wii by unplugging it. Wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once powered on and you see the health/safety information press and hold the red SYNC button on your Wii for 20 seconds.
Now press the Sync button on the controller and while the blue lights are flashing, press the Sync button on the Wii.
Hopefully, that will connect the controller! If it does not, you may need to contact Nintendo!

Cant get pass the "press A button" screen

Turn off for a moment, try again, reconnect your controller.

Since its brand new, you can get it replaced if that doesn't work, dont waste your energy on it, just get another one, free replacement / warraty. Im sure.

The ON button on the Wii remote doesn't respond. Tried new batteries but still no response. No blue lights, nothing! Tried patting it, reset button, all instructions as listed in troubleshooting. Had since...

Try reseting the wii console. This is done by removing the battery from the botton of the console. There is a small battery bay held in by 1 screw. Leave it out for a day and after you install it make sure you press the conect button on the wii. (located under SD card reader door). And the connect button on the controller (located in battery compartment on back of controller). Good Luck.

Bought brand new batteries for my remote, but

You need to re-assign to the Wii. When you first bought it you pressed the button on the front of the Wii to configure controllers, then the controller buttons to find the Wii. When you change batteries you need to repeat this process as the 'memory' of the controller to the Wii has been wiped

Our wii remote wont turn on. we tried new batteries and all it does is the blue lights flashes and turns off. What is wrong and how can we fix it

Sounds like it's not synchronizing with the infrared bar. That might've come loose. Double check to make sure that's plugged into the Wii. If that's not connected the Wii Remote will not stay on because it's not connecting.

My wii controllers wont work

you dont have lights on any one of your controllers?
have you tried them with another console or another controller with your console? this way you can find out where the problem lies with either the controllers or the console. to me it sounds like the console is the problem. How long have you had the wii and did the conttrollers ever work?

Wii remote turns off

It sounds like you either have a low battery, or your motions may be dislodging the batteries on your controller. When the controller is off and you press a button, check to see how many of the four blue lights on the bottom of the controller are flashing. This tells you how much battery power you have: four lights is full, one light is low. If it's saying your battery is full, try taking the battery or batteries out and putting it back in. Good luck!

Wii Remote will not stay sync with console

Have you tried the following? If this doesn't work then pleae provide details on details such as the batterys you are using, number of remotes, etc.
The Wii maunual does not give clear instructions how to reset and sync your Wii remotes. I have found that from time to time my remotes will not sync, especially after they have changed 'order' a couple of times. It appears there is a bug in the code that keeps track of remote codes, and it has a limited buffer for the storage of remote ID's / order. Here are quick step by step instructions how to reset the remote list on the Wii console and re-sync your Wii remotes.
  1. Un-plug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes (60 seconds should do, but leave it off longer to ensure all the power drains).
  2. Plug the Wii back in, and turn on the power button.
  3. Open the panel on the front of the Wii unit. You will see a Red button.
  4. Open the back panel of the Wii remote where the batteries are installed. Beneath the batteries is a small button.
  5. Press and release the small button. The Blue lights on the front of the remote begin to flash.
  6. Press the Red button on the front of the Wii unit.
  7. The Blue lights on the remote should stop flashing after a few seconds. Then one Blue light will remain representing player 1.
  8. Repeat for remote 2, 3 and 4.

Wii remotes will not stay on

1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
3. Remove the battery pack & install regular batteries.
4. On the back of the Wii remote press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
5. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
6. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
7. Quickly remove the batteries and reinsert your Battery Pack.
8. Return to Step 2 for each other remote.

You may run into this issue any time your battery pack has a 0% charge left in it for a duration. Try to keep them charged to prevent it from occuring in the future.
