Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

LED turns green, but console doesn't start up

The LED on my brother's wii turns green when you press it, but the console doesn't startup; the screen flashes but then stays black. Pressing the power button once its green won't power it off either. I plugged in my wii right next to his using the exact same cables and setup his was using and mine works, so its not the cables.

When trying to sync remotes with my brother's wii they won't sync so I can't tell if there is an audio/video issue since I can't reach the menu screen.

We played on his wii last night so I really don't understand what is wrong. He has owned it for over a year now.

    Like I said, I literally just detached the cables from his and plugged them into mine and mine work, so its not the cable connection. It must be something internal to his Wii.

Hum........ that is weird I'm not really sure how to fix that. But make sure all the cable from the wii are plugged in properly. For example: the red, yellow and white cables may look like they are plugged in but sometimes you have to push them in really hard to get them to work.

My wii does that sometimes in the middle of a game it just goes black so I just have to walk up to the TV and make sure they are im properly.

OK, i got a new wii remote, set it up, and now none of my wii remotes are working including the one i just set up.


Try these two synchronization processes and if it still doesn't work than contact me:
  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. This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

    One Time Mode Synchronization
Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.



  1. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Button menu.



  2. Select the Reconnect Option.



  3. Press the 1 and 2 Buttons at the same time on the Wii Remote that you want to synchronize with the console. If you are syncing multiple Wii Remotes, press the 1 and 2 Buttons on each Wii Remote immediately (without a significant pause) in the order you want them synced. The order in which you synchronize Wii Remotes determines the player order (1 through 4) for multiplayer games. The Player LED will blink during the syncing process. When the blinking stops, the connection is complete.

After pressing the red sync button on the console for about 10-15 seconds, and syncronizing the remote, the remote stars to work, but when I start a game the remote is no longer working. Then when I...


There are two ways to sync the Wii remote with the Wii console after pressing the red sync button like you did:

1) Press the "1" and "2" buttons on the Wii remote until the lights begin to flash. This method provides a temporary connection to the Wii.
2) Open the battery cover on the Wii remote and press the red button next to the batteries. This creates a permanent connection or "pair" between the Wii remote and the Wii console.
Based on your description, it sounds like you are using method #1. In order to power on the Wii when the Wii's red light is on (meaning the machine is turned off) and start playing games like you want, method #2 must be used.
Imagine method #1 as "guest mode". If a friend comes over with their Wii remote and wants to play a game, you would open up the game first, use method #1, and your friend would temporarily be connected to the Wii. Using method #1 is like "owner mode" that lets the Wii remote turn the console on and off and always stay connected to it.
Hope this helps!

I turn on the wii and the green LED comes but Black Screen


Assuming you did not tamper with the system (mod it to play burnt games) then that is usually caused by the BlueTooth module not working.

If it's under warranty then send it back to Nintendo. They are very quick and very good.

If it's not, you could try replacing the Bluetooth module yourself. I get mine from http://parts.consolerepairguy.com for about $22. I fix consoles so I know that is usually the cause.

Good luck!

My Wii sensor isn't able to pick up any of my controller's after i turn the console on. All my controller's are fully charged with new batteries but none are picked up by the sensor???


The sensor bar really isn't a sensor at all. There are just 3 infrared LED lights on each side of the bar (you can see them if you look at them on the screen of a digital camera while the Wii is on). The bar just gives the controllers a reference point as to where the screen is.
The controllers actually communicate directly with the console. If the console won't recognize them, make sure there are fresh batteries and then

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
  3. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).
  5. Repeat for each Wiimote.

Have had this problem before with wii sports. What I did was turn off the wii console and unplug from the power, leave for a few seconds then turn it back on when the health & safety screen comes up
  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:
  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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).

Wii LED Green, but no Startup on screen. Cannot power off either.


Just spoke to Nintendo Technical support.  Seems the rub is in the AC adapter itself.
Need to power down at both ends of the AC adapter--unplug AC adapter from wall output AS WELL AS from back of Wii.
Wait at least two minutes to allow any charge in the adapter itself to dissapate.  Plug adapter into wall first, then back into the Wii, making sure your peripherals (eg AV receiver, TV, projector if using) are already on.
Tech support says sometimes you get a partially tripped "fuse" within the AC adapter itself.
This seems to have worked for now--will let the forum know if further problems
