Sometimes the accelorameter becomes misaligned and needs to go back in place. A gentle smack usualy does the trick for cases like this.

Try opening one of the front panels of the wii, you should see a red button that says SYNC, if you take the back off the wiimote there is a similar button, try pressing both of those and see if it will read the wiimote

My wii remote would not work so i bought a new wii wireless sensor and it still does not work can you help please


Have you checked the battery in your Wiimote? It seems like a very basic thing to do, but sometimes the wiimote might not hold a charge if you placed the batteries in incorrectly. If your Wiimote is showing a charge, then you may have forgotten to sync up your wiimote with your sensor bar.
  1. Open the battery door to your Wiimote
  2. You'll see a red button on the bottom of the opened hatch, it says SYNC.
  3. Press that and the sync button on your Wii.
If that still doesn't work, check the connection of your wii sensor cable to your wii. Try pushing the cable in securely.
Good luck!

My wii mote isnt working, I press the power button and the little squares at the bottom start flashing, then after a couple seconds it stops. It wont respond to the console.It has fresh batteries, so I...


I am sure the wii manual have this info to read but just in case you dont have the manual:

First you need to sync the Wiimote to the Wii, in the batteries slot is a red button, and in the wii's SD slot is another red button, touch both buttons (dont need to touch both at the same time but dont wait too much between each one) and try again moving the wiimote to the screen and testing it.

If all the blue lights turn off maybe your batteries are dead.

Sometimes old batteries drop acid into your wiimote circuit and might damage the wiimote, that happens frequently with alkaline or carbon batteries so is good to buy the rechargeable ones.

I cannot connect to wii console with remotes


In case you don't know how to do this: 1) Open the small door in the front of the Wii, and next to the SD card slot is a red sync button. 2) Take the back off your Wiimote and on the button right is a small red button. 3) Press the button on the Wiimote then the button on the Wii, this should sync the controllers.

Now sometimes this doesn't work. It happens to almost everyone. All of a sudden the Wiimotes just loose to sync, but after a long period of time they start working again. From what I know there is nothing you can do about this. But here are some things that you can try:
1) Unplug your Wii then plug it back in. 2) Try new batteries in your Wiimotes. 3) Keep trying to sync the Wiimotes. 4) Try to sync them in someone else's Wii, and then yours.

Wii console won't turn on after a power surge. Had it plugged into a surge protector. Is there a reset button?


Hi,


If there is no LED on, then the most likely reason is, that your wii isn't getting power. So the problem, is with the plugs, and the power adapter. If you have a friend who has a wii, try testing his power adapter on your wii. Make sure your cords are completely plugged in, on both sides, (the outlet and the wii) then press the power button on the wii. If that do-sent work, try turning it on with one of your wiimotes. If that dosent work, that means your wiimote is not synchronized with your wii. To sync. it, open the sd card cover on the front of the wii, press the red button above the sd card slot. Then open the bottom of your wiimote, (where the batteries are) and press the small red button that should be beside the batteries. Then hold the wiimote close to the wii,then after its done flashing, press the power button on the wiimote and also, try plugging your power cord into another outlet. If it still won't work, you've got a broken wii, so you better send it to get replaced or fixed, again as suggested. DON'T OPEN IT! You could loose your warranty if you open it, so it's safest not to. Hope you get it to work

Thank you !!

Wii not picking up signals from Wii remote


Try to re-sync your Wiimote by pressing the red button in the sd compartment on the Wii then the red button in the battery compartment on the Wiimote.

ok well there is a little compartment on the face of the wii that you have to open and it should reveal a red button which will set the wii to pick up any signals from a wiimote but to get the signal from the wiimote you need to open the compartment where the batteries go and there should be another red button you have to press and hold both the buttons at the same time and they should pick up each others signals.
