    The controllers will flash when you push the buttons but the controllers wont hook up to the wii. The controllers will not get connected so my wii keeps getting stuck at the "Press A to continue" screen. I tried to do the manual connection at the back of the wii remote by the batteries but that hasn't worked either.

You need to be a little more specific. What do you mean by they won't hook in?

    Follow the directions in the user guide about syncing up the Wiimote with the console, this involves pressing a button on the console IIRC. Also try removing the batteries and putting them in again, and also try unplugging your console from the outlet for thirty seconds and plugging it back in again.

Cant get pass the "press A button" screen

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

Since its brand new, you can get it replaced if that doesn't work, dont waste your energy on it, just get another one, free replacement / warraty. Im sure.

Our wii controllers are not reading the screen and when they do it wont stop blinking through please?

Try synchronizing your Wii-mote to your Wii. Open the battery compartment on the remote and the SD card door on the front of your Wii. Press the red SYNC button on your Wii and then on the controller. You know it is synced when a solid LED light is shining at the bottom of the Wii-mote.

Controllers wont sync

If you have pressed the sync button on wii, then on the wii-mote, and it still didn't sync, try unplugging the Wii console for few minutes and try the process again.
There is another syncing mode, but you have to have at least one wii-mote connected to the wii. You press the home button and the click on the wii-mote on the screen. There will be a reconnect button. Press that and then press both the 1 and 2 buttons on the wii-mote[s] you want to connect. This is the ONE TIME ONLY connect mode, used when playin on a friends Wii. Once the Wii is powered off, the wii-mote wont be connected any longer and will still be the default wii-mote for your wii system [not on your friends]. Hope this helps.

Problems with a Wii game

if you are in the mulitplayer mode and still have trouble adding the remote then try syncing the remote with the wii first by pressing the home button then go into the wii remote settings on the bottom then re-sync each control. Then try going back into mulitplayer mode and try again or while the screen is on when you want to add more players press the '+' button.

Trying to install wii

I love the way this works - if everything is plugged in properly, the remote control will be detected by the sensor and you should see an arrow on the screen that you can move by physically moving the remote. Use this to point the arrow to "English", then click "A", then move it again to "confirm" (...or is it "OK"?).

Discs wont register on wii system, remote wont work either

You need to sync the remote with the console.
Remove the battery cover from the remote and press the red
button until the blue lights start to blink. At the same time,
press the the red button to the front of the console.  You
can access this button by removing a small cover on the front
of the console. This will reset the machine and you should
start to see th cursor in the tv screen. Repeat this if necessary
and you should be on your way. Good luck
