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.

Wii Problem, the remote

make sure a combination of the 4 blue lights at the bottom of the remote are on (but not flashing, mind you). if they're not, this means that your wii remote isn't connected to your nintendo wii system yet. if when you press a button and none of the lights turn on at all, this means that there are no batteries in your wii remote. if it flashes, this means its trying to connect to your wii system. you might have to troubleshoot this a little bit. try to aim it at the bar that recognizes the wii signal (a separate piece that comes with the wii system).
hope this helps ;-)

Wii remote

You need to make sure the Wii knows where the sensor bar is. (Above or below TV) Another cause is low batteries. Also waving the Wiimote out of range. Make sure the sensor bar is on the very edge of your TV stand, or enterrtainment center. I have noticed on mine that if I'm going crazy with the wiimote and go to low, it will not register. Those are the most common problems and solutions. But you may even have a bad wiimote. There is also a calibration setting for the wiimote. So try all that. I hope this helps!
Good luck and happy gaming!!

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:

Hope this helps you out.
