Replace your batteries or if you have the docking station charge it rather than replaving the batteries. make sure you charge it for the full amount of time otherwise it will keep losing its power.

We tried to reset the sync buttons and the blue lights on the remote blink repeatedly but it still does not communicate with the game


Try removing and reinstalling the batteries from the wiimote and the unplug the wii power cord at the outlet end for a couple minutes. I had that problem once and this seemed to fix it.

Tip

Wii remotes no long respond (one or more remotes) - sync lost


Lately after firmware updates or power loss the Wii will un-pair from the Wiimotes. Some players don't know how to solve this problem. They assume it is the Wii or the batteries in the Wiimote but when they switch them or power off the unit, this doesn't fix it. Reason is that the Wiimotes need to be re-paired (re-synced). This Tip will explain how to do this.

1) In the front of the Wii there is a door. Inside this door you will find the SD card slot. next to the SD card slot there is a RED button with the word "Sync" on it. This is used to put the Wii in bluetooth discovery mode.

2) Take the first remote and remove the battery cover. Below the batteries is a small Red dot button. This is the Wiimote's connection button. First turn on the Wii then press and hold the Wii's Sync button for a few seconds to initiate Discovery Mode. Press and hold the Wiimote's button for a few seconds until the "Player Number" lights on the bottom of the front of the remote blink. The connection is complete when the Wiimote's "Player 1" light goes solid and the Wii will advance to the menu.

3) To re-sync (re-pair) the additional Wiimote's. Repeat the process but this time leave the Wii turned on. With each remote the next player light should turn on. Do this until each remote is synced.

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 !!

Bought new wii remote and wont power up


The wii remote won't power up the Wii itself, or you can't get the wiimote to come on?

If it won't turn on the Wii, it may have to be synced with the system. Not really sure, though. But to sync it, take of the back of the wiimote(the battery cover) and open the little flap on the Wii. There should be red buttons in each. With both on(turn the wii on manually with the power button on the system), press both red buttons at the same time. Alternatively, you can go to the menu and sync wiimotes from there.

If the wiimote won't come on, make sure the batteries are new/charged.

Wii Remote doesn't work


1. Make sure that your batteries are in correctly. See working Wiimote for reference.

2. When you sync the Wiimote, press the red button in the battery compartment and immediately there after, press red sync button in the Wii Console front panel (where the SD card goes between the Eject and Reset buttons).

3. Power off Wii console completely and restart.

4. Press any button on the Wiimote to activate.

5. If the above steps don't work, you may want to return it to the store for a replacement.

Good luck!
