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

Common Fixes for Wii


Almost every Wii problem can be solved with a few troubleshooting techniques. The first of which is to unplug the power cord from both the power outlet and your Wii console. This is a particularly useful fix when the following error message appears on-screen: 'Error Occurred. Press the Eject button and remove the disc. Turn the power off and follow the instructions in the console manual' Also, check the disc to see if it is dirty or scratched. Even if it isn't, clean it with a warm, damp rag. If you are having trouble with your Wii remote, check the battery level by pressing the 'home' key on the front of the Wii remote. The 'home' key has a symbol of a small house and brings up a menu that shows the battery level of your Wii remotes. If the battery level on your Wii remote is fine, hold down the sync buttons on both the Wii console and Wii remote. The sync button on the Wii console is located underneath the plastic flap on the front (just below the power button) and the sync button on the Wii remote is located under the battery cover (just above the batteries.) Both buttons are red and have the word 'sync' on them, so they should be fairly easy to find. Hold both buttons for about five seconds or until the 4 lights on the Wii remote flash. Wait a couple seconds and your Wii remote should be re-synced.

Sudently none of my wii remote seems to work.When i press the a button, lights flashes but ther,se no activation of of the remote.


You need to syncronize your Wii-motes to the console. Open the back of the Wii-mote like you are going to put new batteries in and the front compartment on your Wii where you insert a new SD card. Press the red SYNC button on your Wii and then on the remotes and it should sync them.

Remotes can't be found


When you change the batteries for a Wii Remote (in my experience) you have to re-sync (reconnect) them to the Wii console. To do this, there is a button on the Wii Remote by the batteries that either says sync or will show curved bars on I think i red button. This same button should be located on the Wii console. You have to push the sync button on the Wii then on the remote to sync them together. This should solve your connection problem.

are you able to get any of your controllers to connect? if not it could be a issue with your sensor bar. please provide a bit more info

but try this first

Synchronizing the Wii Balance Board with your Wii Console
IMPORTANT: To operate correctly, the Wii Balance Board must be synchronized with the Wii console using Standard Mode Synchronization. Follow the steps below to synchronize the board to the console.
  • This procedure must be followed for each Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
  • These synchronization settings will be saved even if the console is turned off.
  • This procedure can be completed only if a compatible Game Disc is running in the console.
  1. Press the EJECT Button on the front of the Wii console and remove any
    game disc if necessary. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel on the Wii Menu screen and select START.
  3. Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
    NOTE: Close the SD Card slot cover when you are finished with the synchronization procedure.
  4. Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
    NOTE: Replace the Battery Cover when you are finished with the aynchronization procedure.
  5. Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking (for up to about 20 seconds).
Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the console while the Power LED on the board is blinking.
  1. IMPORTANT: Do not press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the Wii console down for more than 10 seconds. This will delete all of the Standard Mode synchronization information for all Wii Remotes that you use with that console.
  2. The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is
    complete. You are now ready to play the Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc. Please refer to the instruction booklet for the Game Disc you are using for further information on gameplay.
  • Only one Wii Balance Board can be synchronized to a Wii console at a time. Up to a total of 10 Wii Remotes and accessories can be synchronized to a console at any time with the Standard Mode procedure. If additional synchronizations are made, the oldest existing ones will be overwritten.
  • The Wii Balance Board can only be synchronized to one console at a time using the Standard Mode procedure. If you change the console you are using the board with, you will have to repeat the synchronization procedure each time.
  • The Wii Balance Board uses the Player 4 (P4) connection. If a Wii Remote is actively using P4, that remote will be disconnected while the board is being used.

Wii remote


Greetings baggie bird,

You need to resynch your remote to your Wii console.

You hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.

Thank you,

Dort

Cursor does not appear


exchange it

    Cursor not appearing
    Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
  • Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the steps below.

  • Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii Remote designated as "Player 1" to function.

  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.

  • Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength. Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1) or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting, if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate. For guidelines on using batteries, please click here. If after inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs flash, then your Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

  • Is the Wii Remote properly synced?
    Press the POWER button on the Wii Remote to see if the Wii console powers on.
    • If it does, the Wii Remote is synced with the system. Please skip to the next section.
    • If the power doesn't come on, power on the system manually and try syncing the Wii Remote.
      • If the Wii Remote will not sync, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
      • If the Wii Remote will sync and the cursor still does not appear, try another Wii Remote if possible.
        • If at least one Wii Remote is working, there is likely a problem with the first Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
        • If you have only one Wii Remote, or none that are working, please continue troubleshooting.

  • Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
  • Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
  • Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly, by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side through the Wii Channel screens.
    • If you are able to scroll with the "+" and "-" buttons, but the cursor is not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for additional Sensor Bar information.
    • If there is no response, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.

Buy a new sensor bar. None of my 5 Wii remotes had a cursor on screen so I bought a new sensor bar and it worked fine.

Remote malfunction


Do the LEDs light up when you press the buttons on the Wii Remote? Try simply turning off the console, and pressing the power button a couple times firmly on the Wii Remote. If it turns on the Wii, the connection should be established. If it doesn't turn on the Wii, some hardware is defective. Recommend calling Nintendo Support if this happens.
