Hello there

Hold the Wii Remote upside-down with the buttons facing downward.

Tap the remote firmly against the palm of your hand three times to remove any dust sitting between the buttons and the electronic circuit board inside the remote.

Turn the remote upright and press one of the buttons. If the problem continues, Open your Wii Remote's battery door

Check that your Wii Remote contains two new "AA" batteries or a charged battery pack. Check that no corrosion is present on the battery's metal elements/connectors.

Use a cotton swab to clean the remote's battery element/connectors if corrosion is present.

Check that the Sensor Bar cable is inserted firmly into the back of your Wii gaming system. The Sensor Bar needs to be centered above or below your television so the Wii Remote can transmit signals to the gaming system.

Stand three feet away from the Wii gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Aim the remote and press any button to test the device.

If the remote is not working, stand five to 10 feet away from the gaming system and try the device. The Wii Remote works best three to 10 feet away from the gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Move any objects blocking the signal from the remote to the gaming system/Sensor bar--candles, other remote controls (TV/cable box) and wireless computer devices/cellular phones.

Also, if any sunlight is coming in through a window, close the curtains or blinds to keep the light from interfering with the remote's signal.

Turn off and unplug your Wii gaming system. Leave the unit unplugged for one minute. Plug the gaming system back in.

If the remote still aint working;

Turn the Wii system on. Press and hold the red "SYNC" button for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen appears on your television. The "SYNC" button is behind the small door on the front of your Wii unit.

Release the "SYNC" button. Remove the battery cover and batteries/battery pack from the back of your Wii Remote.


Press and release the red button located under the battery compartment. The blue lights on the front of the remote will blink

Press and release the "SYNC" button on the front of your Wii gaming system. The "Player" light on the gaming system stops blinking and stays on, the resetting process is complete

2 Button On Wii Remote Doesn't Work


Have you tried washing the button out with regular rubbing alcohol then let it dry overnight. this should do it, if it don't you will need to take the controller apart to clean the contactor more thoroughlly.

My wii remote cursor works fine until i get to the main menu of the new game i bought. the cursor doesnt show up. i tried hitting the remote and "bull whipping" it but its still not working.


make sure your wii controller is properly configured, go to your wii system settings and make sure all the settings are correct and your controller is properly configured. Your proximity to tho sensor bar also plays a role in this, dont get too close :)

Wii fit boxing


You don't need to punch hard with the Wii Boxing. Below is a demo video of how the game should be played:

If you notice, there is a small twist in the remote when the demonstrator leans forward. Its that motion that the Wii recognises rather than distance. You can even flick the controller to get the same effect.
Be sure that the sensor bar is flat and facing the player directly for best reception.

Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?


You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.

Hi, your wii should provide sound through the Tv as well as the wii remotes, All you need connected should be the skart cable connected to the tv to provide the picture & sound.
i would suggest you contact the company you purchased the wii, due to its still under warrenty. i currently have 2 with no problems and didnt need to change any settings

have a good new year
