Problem setting up the Wii

Hello, I have just bought a Wii and am trying to set it up. Have connected everything, synchronised the remote and the console and have turned it on.

First page says 'click A to continue' - have done that, no problems.

It then flashes up on the screen that you have to select your language. It then goes to another screen where there are boxes with the languages in and another at the bottom saying 'confirm'. The English block is highlighted in red. I've tried to click on that - nothing happens. Have tried to scroll between the boxes - nothing.

NOTHING is happening.

What's wrong with it?! I'm losing the plot.

    Trying to set up my new WII - everything is fine until I get to the language selection screen - and English is highlighted in red but none of the buttons on the remote will allow me to confirm. I am getting rather frustrated as can't wait to start playing it!!!! The remote is definately syncronised I am able to turn power on/off with remote and choose 'A' on initial screen. Can anyone give me advice on this?

Try aiming the remote at the screen ( Providing you have your sensor set up) till you see the little hand pop up and use that to click on the English tab with the A button.

I hope that helped...

I've tried 'synchronising' my two new wii remotes, no luck !!

The best known way to see if the Wii remote is synced is if the P1 light at the bottom of the remote stays lit. I'm not sure if there's a way of knowing if the Wii remote is synced correctly.

Can't connect my Wii remote to the Wii

Take off the battery cover on the back of the wii remote and open the slot on the front of the wii where you put in the memory card:

Press the red button by where the batteries go in the remote and the red button by the memory card slot together and they should find each other and synchronise properly. If they ever lose synchronisation again just repeat the process.

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.

No connection remote and

Replace batteries, making sure they are the right way round,
Press red button near the batteries in the remote,
press the red button behind the flip open panel on the front of the wii console.
This should synchronise the two, if not, then try with another remote.

Remotes not synchronising

  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 on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

Remote malfunction

Do the LEDs light up when you press the buttons on the Wii Remote? Try simply turning off the console, and pressing the power button a couple times firmly on the Wii Remote. If it turns on the Wii, the connection should be established. If it doesn't turn on the Wii, some hardware is defective. Recommend calling Nintendo Support if this happens.
