Hello there!

What this looks like is a problem with the batteries. Your batteries might be very low and need replacing. I would suggest replacing the batteries in your remote and seeing if that works.

If this does not work, you can try permanently syncing your Wii remote again.

You can do this by:
Step 1. Turn on the Wii console.
Step 2. Open up the back of the Wii remote and press the little red button that says "SYNC." next ot it.
Step 3. While the Wii remote's 4 LEDs are flashing, press the big rectangular "SYNC." button on the Wii console (in case you didn't know this, the Wii's SYNC. button is located under the plastic flap on the front of the Wii console, with the SD card slot). Wait a second, and the remote will register as a remote on the Wii console. This is the only sure-fire way to sync a Wii remote. TIP: make sure when you turn the console on, that you press A on the remote you want to be first player first, or it might get the remotes' player orders mixed up. They will still be synced to the console, but just in undecided orders. You will have to press A for the remote(s) you want to use every time you turn on the Wii console.

If all else fails I would suggest contacting Nintendo support at 1-800-895-1672 and they should be able to help you further. You could also go to your local electronics store that sells Wii products and get a replacement and follow the syncing as stated above.

I dont know what setting to put the tv on for the Wii. I've been to the nintendo website and it say the exact same thing as the booklet. My TV is a Hisense. Thank-you


You have to change your TV's video mode. This is usually done with a TV/Video Input button on the TV's remote since the wii connects with composite (Red, White, Yellow) cables. If your TV or remote does not have an TV/Video Input button you might need to consult your TVs manual.

The wii is working,but the remotes will not connect.thank you for your time


You might need to sync the remot to the wii:
  • In the back of the remote by the battery there is a red button
  • On the Wii console there is a small door, open it and you'll find a red button
  • press both button at the same time.
  • Then press the home icon on the remote and you should see a p1through p4 icon
  • click on the icon bar and press the reconnect tab.
Good Luck and have fun!!

Cant connect the second wii remote to the console i sync did not work


you need to try to put new batteries in the remote. and if that does not work, then you need to make sure you are pushing the red button on the wii remote under the battery cover and the button on the wii AT THE SAME EXACT TIME. it would be easier to have you push the remoted red button and have someone else push the red button on the wii. make sure it is at the same time or it will not work.

Wii remote will not work new batteries just blink all


Hey Jack, How many remotes are you able to connect at a time? If you have multiple remotes try turning the ones you know that work off, and putting them in another room(so you know they will not try to connect). Then try connecting with the bad one. If that doesn't work you might have to sync the remote: hold down the red sync button on the wii, located next to the sd card slot, while holding down the red button on the remote, located under the battery cover on the back. Now try connecting. If it still doesn't work, the LED lights in the sensor bar might have burned out, this happens a lot when you keep your sensor bar directly on your tv without the stand(the tv gets hot and burns out the lights), a lot of people do this because the stand looks bad. Go buy a new sensor bar, they sell them at wal-mart for $20, plus they're wireless, so you don't have to worry about that thin little wire popping. Test the new wii bar, if it's still not working, then you're remote is just worthy of getting returned.
hope this helps! -cj

Cannot get Wii remote to work :-(


Switch the batteries and then hold down the red button on the Wii and press 1 and 2. If that doesn't work try other Wii remotes. If those work get some new Wii remotes and if not then have your Wii checked

Setting up 2nd wii remote


Greetings mlsaenz7,

You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
Thank you,

Dort

2nd wii remote will not connect with mario play 8


We had this same problem so I did a google search for 2nd wii remote not connecting or staying connected and this is what we came up with and did this and it really works! So hopefully this will help all of you to. Good luck! K and M

This is from www.nintendo.com/wii :

Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common:
Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp
    Try these steps!
  1. Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.

  2. Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.

  3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
    1. With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.

    2. Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.

    3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture below).

    4. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

    5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

Nintendo wii not powering on and remote blinking


Just talked with Nintendo about this matter. Fortunately, the Wii has a safety feature on the AC adapter which shuts it down should there be any sort of significant "spike" or interruption with the power. The solution? Unplug the AC adapter for about 2 minutes (from the wall and the Wii unit itself), then plug everything back in! Believe it or not, this actually works!
