I'm sure you have tried most of these steps but I'm going to list them any way. So we have a complete picture of the trouble shooting process.

1. Sync system first (by pressing the sync button located next to the SD memory slot)
2. Right after you hit the sync button on the system, hold down the 1 abd 2 buttons on the remote (or press the sync button located under the battery cover).

Try replacing the battery's and or rechargeable battery for the controller. Repeat the sync process above.

Try another controller with your wii or try your controller with a different wii. Repeat sync process above.

If another controller works with your system than that would indicate that there is an issues with your xbox controller.

If your controller works with another wii and no other controllers work with your wii than there is a issue with your console.

If your wii is still under warranty I suggest contacting Nintendo directly.

I hope the info listed above has helped in some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Our wii has been boxed away awhile we cant get it to reconize our emotes can help


Here is a step by step instruction on Syncing your Wii remotes to you console!!http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/setupWiiRemote.jsp#Synch

Synchronizing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console Synchronizing the Wii Remote to a Wii console allows the Wii Remote to communicate with the console. The Wii Remote included with your system should already be synchronized to your console. However, all additional Wii Remotes you use with your system also need to be synced in order to function properly..
There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing):
  • STANDARD MODE - The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original Wii Remote. Once synchronized, the Wii Remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite the settings by syncing the remote to a different console. For instructions on Standard Mode syncing, please click here.

  • ONE TIME MODE - This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a Wii console other than your own, or to use a friend's remote on your console. It can also be used to change the order of the Wii Remotes, without the need to turn off the Wii console. One Time Mode does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the Wii Remote. In this mode, the Wii Remote will only communicate with the Wii console while the power is on. When the power is turned off, the Wii Remote will lose its sync with the Wii Console. For instructions on One Time Mode setup, please click here.
Note: Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.
Standard Mode Synchronization
Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote (how to).
  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 just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.

  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
  5. wiiremotesynchstandard.gifThis procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

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 will not stay sync with console


Have you tried the following? If this doesn't work then pleae provide details on details such as the batterys you are using, number of remotes, etc.
The Wii maunual does not give clear instructions how to reset and sync your Wii remotes. I have found that from time to time my remotes will not sync, especially after they have changed 'order' a couple of times. It appears there is a bug in the code that keeps track of remote codes, and it has a limited buffer for the storage of remote ID's / order. Here are quick step by step instructions how to reset the remote list on the Wii console and re-sync your Wii remotes.
  1. Un-plug the power cord from the back of the console for 5 minutes (60 seconds should do, but leave it off longer to ensure all the power drains).
  2. Plug the Wii back in, and turn on the power button.
  3. Open the panel on the front of the Wii unit. You will see a Red button.
  4. Open the back panel of the Wii remote where the batteries are installed. Beneath the batteries is a small button.
  5. Press and release the small button. The Blue lights on the front of the remote begin to flash.
  6. Press the Red button on the front of the Wii unit.
  7. The Blue lights on the remote should stop flashing after a few seconds. Then one Blue light will remain representing player 1.
  8. Repeat for remote 2, 3 and 4.
