Question about Nintendo Wii Console

Nintendo Wii Remote

Don't know if any has had this issue with the wii remote, mine has gone periodically worse, I have been through 3 sets of chargers, usb and mains and none of the batteries seem to charge, The blue leds are very dim, although the remote works sometimes, the batteries only last about 20 mins, seems like all the power is getting sapped from the remote, I'm not an electronics wizz but I'm suspecting the capacitor at the bottom is faulty and sapping power,  Any advice would be great.
Thanks

    Thanks for the reply Ipodfreek, I'm using Uniross Nimh - 900 Mah, rechargeables. When I use standard alkaline's (philips powerlife) I still only get around 10-20 mins use, however using the same batteries in the other remote works fine. I guessing the remote is dying/dead, if anyone knows of any spares sites that would be useful, but I suspect there's not many replaceable parts in the Wii-Mote!!




    Regards

    I bought the Wii rechargeable batteries with the charging station and they only lasted about 2 weeks. When I place the remote in the recharge station the blue light does not come on anymore. Not sure if the batteries are bad, if the recharge station is bad or both. The remotes appear to be working fine and eating alkaline batteries like an SUV drinks gas.

    I bought our wii brand new today and the remote shuts down during play. The wii says batteries are full. Any suggestions?

    What brand batteries are you using? I've found that generic rechargeables don't always have a consistent supply of power.

    Try a name brand rechargeable if you aren't already. Look close to make sure it's the actual "name brand". Generic batteries often resemble the real thing, but they aren't.

My wii remote wont turn on, i even tried a couple different new batteries but still no lights or anything


Have you tried syncing the Wii remotes? To sync, turn the Wii on, open the back of the remote and then press a red button that says "SYNC". Then open the SD card slot in the front of the Wii and press another red "SYNC" button. If you do this, your Wii remotes should be able to turn on.

If your Wii remotes still don't turn on, visit support.nintendo.com

Or call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance on your Wii.

Using the Wii Wheel, uncontrollable


you might have a bad wii remote, because the wii wheel is just a case for the remote to sit in. try playing it without the wheel and see if that works. if you dont have any luck, you need a new wii remote.

Wii remote works but not for wii sports


If you're wii remote works as a pointer but not when swinging it then it is a problem with the accelerometer inside the wii remote and not the infra red bit on the end. Good news is its usually just stuck as mine was. Nintendo recommend turning the remote upside down and giving it a few taps on the palm of your hand. Worked on mine and saved me £30 as i was about to buy a new one.

I cannot make the second remote sync.


hi,
after you enter the game, do the following: (must admit it took me some time to figure it out)
1. hit on home button on wii-mote to bring up wii menu
2. choose remote setting and setup the extra remote(s) you want to use in the game
3. now your extra remote(s) are recognized.
you can now go back to the game and choose multi-user mode

Wii doesn't work


Hey mushbean,

If the motion sensor in your Wii remote is not functioning properly, Nintendo has recommended that you try the following:

1) Hold the Wii remote with the button side down.

2) Gently tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times.

3) Check the remote to see if it properly responds to motion.

Should this not solve the problem, you may want to check out the online FAQ and troubleshooting guide developed by Nintendo for all Wii remote issues. The FAQ can be found through the following website:

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
