The wii controllers only work if held sideways. I even tried buying new controllers. They have the same problem. I have to hold the controller with the side pointing at the screen.

SOURCE: wii controllers wont work

Hi, i have just fixed the same problem with my controllers. You must re-sync the controllers. In order to do this, turn on wii, open back of first controller where batteries are and press red sync button, then open small compartment on wii beside where game goes in and press the red button, the first blue light should light up on your controller, repeat for other controllers, making sure to do this process for each controller seperately. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Wii control wont let me turn kart in mario kart wii

I just answered a question that may be relevant to this one so here we go I'm gonna copy and paste a solution I think may help you.

The accelerometer in the wii may be stuck, which does happen from time to time.
To fix this turn the Wii remote so the buttons face towards the floor and slap the back of the remote firmly(not too hard!) with the palm of your hand. It should work if that is the problem.
*make sure to hold onto the Wii and not let it fall*

Try it again and if that fails contact Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700 they have amazing customer service and your call should conclude with satisfying results.

Charging pad the remote batteries are dead, won't hold charge anymore...


Sadly that's how they make the new rechargable batteries for controllers. You are supposed to recycle that and buy new. Luckily you can find chargers for the wii very cheap nowadays. I have used a few different chargers and have found the Nyko brand ones are junk so steer clear of those. The Duracell induction chargers however work very nicely. You just set the wii remote down on the charge pad and it charges fairly quickly. My kids run around and even if the remote shifts a bit it will continue charging. Hope this helps!

My daughter put the batteries the wrong way round in her wii controller and now it wont work,it will not turn on


Even with the batteries the wrong way, it wouldn't cause the controller to mess up. It may be defective or not holding a charge. The only remedy is buying a new one. It would be cheaper then trying to fix it.

The mario kartwon't turn, it will go staight or backwards I pushed the red button and no change. what next?


Are you holding the controller in your hand sideways?Directional on one side and 1 and 2 buttons on the other?If you are,you just need to kind of turn the controller like a wheel with both hands.If you did that and it still doesn't work let me know.If you pushed the red button is that the one in the battery compartment?If you need to resync,you point the controller at the sensor bar with a game on and press and hold the red button inside the large door on the console.You may need to try it a couple times.
Good luck!

Wii Controller doesn't work


Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, t fix your problem make sure the controllers are on then hold the sync button on the console for approx 5 sec then let go and then hold the sync button on a controller for approx 5 sec., same goes for the other controller, press the console sync button first for every new controller added. I hope this helps you, if this doesnt work then thre is a issue with either the console sync system or the controller. Please remember feedback as I am new and trying to work my way to a higher rep. Thank You

Wii and Gamecube controllers do not work for Wii


Perhaps this is a stupid question, but have you synced your controllers lately?

Open the little drop over under the disk tray (the place where you put the SD card) and press and hold the red button in there, open the battery cover for the wiimote and press and hold that little red button. Wait till both the controller and the system respond. Basically, they have to find eachother again.

I hope this helps.

Caid.
