That should work. I tried pressing the connection button, and then none of them worked, then one, none, and then all. It might take a while, but so long as the Wiimote is not defected, then it should work

The Wii turns on but the remote won't connect to the screen...all lights working also, bought a new sensor bar and still nothing...???


Turn on the Wii console, when at the home screen press any button on the wii remote, if the lights on the wii remote remain dark then it needs new batteries.

If the lights all light up at the same time then stop this means you are not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time to sync, this will work if they have been synced before.

If your four lights still blink blue then you need to open the little compartment on the console that is right below the disc tray. Inside is a little red button, press the button. Now open your battery compartment on the wii remote and take out the battery, then press the red button inside. Put the battery back in and the controller should sync up. If you are still having trouble you will need to contact Nintenedo Technical Support.

Hope this helped!

Tip

Wii doesn't sync remotes - Here is the fix!


If you are having problems syncing your Wii Remote (or Balance Board) to your Wii, follow these steps to reset all synchronized devices.

In many cases this will clear up the issue.

1. First you will need to check a few things, just to make sure what the actual problem is.

- Check to see that all cords are properly plugged in.
- Make sure the sensor bar is properly center above or below your TV set.
- Make sure that nothing is blocking the signal to the sensor bar.
- Make sure that the batteries in the remote are in good working order.
- Make sure that there are no wireless devices close by that might be interfering with the signal.

2. If after all this the remote is still not working then it probably needs to be re-synced.

3. Turn off and unplug your Wii console for five minutes.

4. Plug your Wii back in and power it on.

5. When you see the the Health and Saftey screen open the small flap on the front of the Wii console. Inside you will find the red sync button. Press and hold the red button down for 15 seconds.

6. Remove the battery cover from the Wii remote, inside you will see another red button.

7. Press and release the red button on the Wii Console.

8. Press the red button inside the Wii remote and then hit the A Button on the Wii Remote.

9. The remote will stop blinking and it should now be synced.

My Wii is not working. It will come on but the remote will not sync with the console (the hand does not appear on the scree). We purchased a new remote but it still is not working. We pushed the red...


You will have to update the wii to play newer games. Your controller problem if it does show a led light on the remote then its synced. If its just not showing you a hand on the screen then its probably your sensor bar. If your controller will not sync and all four leds flash then I would push the button on the console and push the button the remote then just try hitting the a or b buttons. I've also had to slap the remote after hitting the sync buttons to get it to sync. The update thing is normal though.

Remotes wont work light up but wont stay on ,hit


The red button, is a sync button and not a reset button. You can try resyncing your wii remotes to your wii follow these steps:

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.

  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.

  3. Press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote.

  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
You must have batteries in when pressing the red sync button on the wii remote, if your using the wii remote charger system, you must remove it and use batteries until this step is done

Hope this helps. Owen

Wii remotes dont work on the tv screen replaced batteries in both remotes still does nothing


If you ahve checked for all possible obstructions or made sure tha tyour sensor bar is plugged try to re-sync your Wii remotes. Unplug your Wii for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Upon seeing the health and saftey screen hold down the sync button on your Wii console for 15 seconds. This clears out any previous Wii Remote Syncs. After that is performed open up the battery cover on the Wii remote you want to sync and hit the red button, soon after you do that hit the red sync button on your Wii Console. If it syncs properly the blue LEDs on the bottom of the controller will corespond to the # remote it has been synced to. Good luck.

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,
