    If I point straight at the TV, I get no hand, but if I point the remote perpendicular to the left, then I get a hand. I've tried all the sync stuff, made sure the sensor bar is aligned correctly, and still no luck. I have to keep pointing to the left. Can't play games like that.

I had exactly same problem with Guitar Hero.
The buttons were working fine, but couldn't see the hand. It turned out that someone flipped the receiver bar on the top of the TV. Make sure the receiver bar is in the right orientation.

The problem could be the sensor bar, try plugging in someone elses which you know works, or use a wireless sensor.
If you have a bright room due to one or more light sources,turn off all lights and close drapes .Try syncing remotes,press red nsync button for 10 secs while you press red sync button on remotes.
Make sure the sensor is aligned proper, also if wireless that it is turned on. try using remotes on someone elses wii system.

This problem drives me nuts, we have just bought the wii and it takes a good couple of minutes to get the hand to show up and that's by doing all the things suggested. You would think with the technology and the cost of the thing you wouldn't have to do all this stuffing around just to get it going!

Had the same problem but found that pressing the red button under the flap at the front of the wii console at the same time as sync button on the controller seemed to work, for me anyway.

O.K, after having this problem myself and no amount of syncing or holding the red button for 5 secs working I found another cause/solution elsewhere. The motion sensors in the wiimote seem to jam/seize up so tapping/banging the controller on the floor can free them up. Obviously don't do this too hard and on a soft carpet is better but as a last resort it's worth a try.

Turn wii remote to the left so it will be perpendicular

Posted on Jun 29, 2008

U didnt turn it on and u need to put the batteries.

Posted on May 08, 2008

JOHNNY2Hotty is correct. I had the same problem but on the wii there is a little thing that you have to open up on the front of it and it shows a red button. Hold the button down for five seconds and it should work, it worked for me! Good luck to you all and I hope this helps!! ^_^

I had the same problem where the hand would only show up on the wii menu by pointing it due left. I tried syncing it, replacing batteries, turning on/off the console. It finally started working when I just unplugged and plugged back in the sensor bar from the console while it was on. Hope it helps.

Wii fit balance board new batteries but will not respond to wii fit when button is pushed.


Does the light flash but not connect or does the light not flash at all? If the light flashes, you should try holding the sync button where the batteries go in the balance board and the sync button in front of the wii. I don't know what to do if the light doesn't go on at all though.

Bought 2nd hand wii fit, have just loaded disc and replaced batteries in board but power light not staying on board, flashes for about 30 seconds and then switches off. Does it need to be synchronised with...


    Hope this helps

    Try these steps!

  1. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc in the Wii console.

  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game. Press the A Button to bypass the wrist strap screen.

  3. Open the small SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
  4. Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
  5. Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The blue light on the board will start blinking.
  6. Press and release the red SYNC button on the Wii console while the blue light on the board is still blinking.
  7. The blue light will stop blinking and stay on steady once the synchronization is complete.
please leave a good rating and testimonial if you appreciate my help. THNX

Wii remotes are not responding to anything. batteries have been changed and lights are flashing but


You need to synchronize them to your Wii. First turn on your Wii. Open the battery compartment on the back of your Wii-mote and the front SD Card door on the front of your Wii. There is a little round red SYNC button on the back of your Wii-mote and a red SYNC button on your Wii in that door. Press the button on the remote and then on the Wii and it should sync. If it doesn't work at first try again. You know it is synched when one of the four LED lights at the bottom of the Wii-mote is solid.

I cant synchronise my board with the wii box


Make sure you are trying to sync it when the Wii Fit game asks you to. It will say "place you wii fit board on the floor and turn it on" or something like that. and then when it asks you, turn it on, and it should sync.

otherwise, try it on another wii if you can... if it works on another wii then its your wii.. if it doesnt work on another wii then it is you Wii Fit Board.
