Make sure your charger is plugged in your Wii AND turned on. If you do this, the remotes should charge.
If the remotes still don't charge, there's a problem.

Charging pad the remote batteries are dead, won't hold charge anymore...


Sadly that's how they make the new rechargable batteries for controllers. You are supposed to recycle that and buy new. Luckily you can find chargers for the wii very cheap nowadays. I have used a few different chargers and have found the Nyko brand ones are junk so steer clear of those. The Duracell induction chargers however work very nicely. You just set the wii remote down on the charge pad and it charges fairly quickly. My kids run around and even if the remote shifts a bit it will continue charging. Hope this helps!

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    Batteries r not charging What could be the problem and could it be repaired


    Hello

    First, make sure your batteries are rechargeable. But even rechargeable batteries have a lifespan, try charging it into another charger. If it is charging on another charger, then that means your charger is faulty. If it won't charge on another charger, then the batteries are dead, and you need to buy new set of batteries.

    I have purchased a new Dr Who sonic Screwdriver wii controller, unfortunately the instructions were thrown out with the packaging and i am having trouble charging it. I have it currently connected via usb...


    Hi, Here is the relevant text as found in the instructions:"Plug the mini USB end of the supplied USB charge cable to the charge socket on the Sonic Screwdriver Remote Controller (SSRC) and other end [ their error, not mine -KP ] of the charge cable to the Wii console. A red LED charge indicator is on when charging. When the battery is fully charged, the red LED automatically turns off. Charge time is between 2 to 3 hours and a fully charged battery has between 6 to 12 hours of playtime.""The Wii Console must be ON for the SSRC to be able to recharge its battery. It will not recharge when the Wii Console is OFF or in Stand-by Mode."" Charging : LED lights up"" Full charge : LED goes out"Hope this works for you. Keith Pyne

    After charging the wii remotes in the base until


    I don't think you are doing anything wrong, just the setup you are useing is'nt as effective as you would like.

    I use the energizer rechargeable (NiMH) batteries with the energizer 15 minute charger. The other batteries and chargers just don't seem to work as well. I get several hours of play time on a single charge, where I was only getting about 1/2 hour to an hour with the others. **No I am not a paid endorser, I just use and like the product!**

    Hope this helps, please let me know how you end up or if I can help more.

    make sure the battery charger is connected, and that the port connections are tight, other than that I would say you have a faulty charger.

    Problem with wii controller charger


    Sounds like you broke your remote to me. did the batteries leak on your remote? If so, try to clean the contacts on the remote (the spring on one side and the flat one on the other). You may need to use a nail file to scrape off the gunge.

    Now, why did this happen? Did you put rechargable batteries in your wiimote before you put it on the charger? And if so, did yo put the CORRECT TYPE of rechargables? There's a big difference between nickle cadmium (Ni-CD), Nickle Metal Hydride (Ni-MH), and Rechargable Alkaline. Putting the wrong type of battery, or a non-rechargable battery into the wrong recharger causes leaking, explosion and fire... as the charger and the batteries warn you of all over.
