If you have gotten all set up and gotten to the health warning page you are almost there. lets back up a little. do you have fresh batteries in your controller? sometimes people overlook the simplest things. did you have the sensor set up on top of the t.v. or under. doesn't matter as long as you have it set up. this is how you communicate with the system. if you don't have that black sensor strip set up your controller won't work and therefor nothing you do with the controller will register with the wii.

Bad torque convertor want to replace with one a little bit more heavy duty?

Marty, I'm not too sure if there's such a thing as a heavy duty torque converter. I can't say that I've ever heard of one. The type of torque converter is, as far as I'm aware, specific to the make-model and transmission of your vehicle.

A torque converter usually has a long life though sometimes they can develop faults such as leaks. Repair/rebuild is a specialised requirement and outside the scope of the home mechanic. It's only a specialised company that can do anything with them.

A second-hand torque converter is an option - but remember they are second hand and come with no guarantee. It may work fine for a few years - or a couple of weeks. There's no way of knowing which.

The link below is for torque converters on Ebay. Maybe contact one of the suppliers and ask their advice?

You can also do a Google search for 'reconditioned torque converter'. This is a slightly cheaper option (if you can find a reconditioned unit) and will come with some form of guarantee.

If you're doing the work yourself - well done! It's a big, messy job. I've done a few over the past 40 years.

On a personal note - I'm in the UK - many, many years ago I had a problem with the torque converter on a 1969 Rover 3500 V8. I didn't have much money at that time, and fitted a second hand torque converter. It took 2 days to complete the job.. which wasn't easy...

20 miles after fitting the second hand torque converter I became aware of torque converter problems ... and yes, I fitted another second hand torque converter which lasted a whole 4 weeks...

I'm sure you get the idea... New or reconditioned with a guarantee is the only option. My friend in Ohio assures me that the devil punishes people by making them fit second hand torque converters to their cars ... He's from Ohio, he doesn't tell lies..

Wii balance board blinks for a second and won't turn on, what is wrong?

You could try holding the red sync button under the battery cover on the balance board and on the front of the Wii system. It doesn't always work though so re syncing isn't a guaranteed fix.

Wii mario kart, second wheel won't turn

I tried resyncing from the main screen, but one of the wiimotes still didn't work. I read to smack the wiimote facedown in your hand a couple of times, and that worked!!!

Apparently the motion sensor can get stuck inside, although it doesn't totally make sense, because previously when the wiimote didn't steer, it still moved on the screen to choose character, car, etc.
