Remotes won't connect. put in new batteries, tried pressing red button in side remotes, all 4 blue lights are flashing on both remotes


Hello kellyanne_ma,
The Wii must be searching for remotes before one will connect. If you are trying to connect controller #1 (meaning there are none connected) and it fails, there may be a problem with your Wii.
First, remove power from the Wii by unplugging it. Wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once powered on and you see the health/safety information press and hold the red SYNC button on your Wii for 20 seconds.
Now press the Sync button on the controller and while the blue lights are flashing, press the Sync button on the Wii.
Hopefully, that will connect the controller! If it does not, you may need to contact Nintendo!

The Wii turns on but the remote won't connect to the screen...all lights working also, bought a new sensor bar and still nothing...???


Turn on the Wii console, when at the home screen press any button on the wii remote, if the lights on the wii remote remain dark then it needs new batteries.

If the lights all light up at the same time then stop this means you are not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time to sync, this will work if they have been synced before.

If your four lights still blink blue then you need to open the little compartment on the console that is right below the disc tray. Inside is a little red button, press the button. Now open your battery compartment on the wii remote and take out the battery, then press the red button inside. Put the battery back in and the controller should sync up. If you are still having trouble you will need to contact Nintenedo Technical Support.

Hope this helped!

I can't connect my controller to the wii console. Model number Rvl-001(USA). Model of nyko pistol accessory is Bn:090907 4632.My mom threw out the manual out by mistake.HELP!


  • Turn on your Wii console. While on the HOME screen, press any button on the Wii Remote.
  • If the 4 squares on the bottom remain dark, change the batteries (or for a rechargeable Wii Remote, place it on the charger for a while).
  • If the 4 squares blink blue, then stop, your Wii Remote is not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time. This should connect your Wii Remote if it's been synced before.
  • If your 4 squares still blink blue, then stop, these last steps will do the trick. First, on the front of the Wii console, just underneath the disc slot, there is a small panel that opens down. Open it and press the small red button.
  • Open the battery panel of your Wii Remote and press the small red button. Replace the battery panel and observe the blinking blue lights. If 3 stop blinking, and 1 remains lit blue, your Wii Remote is synced with your console.

My wii won't connect to the wii remotes - batteries have been changed


The wii motes and wii console may need to be re-synced. To do this, press the red button on the wii console which is located behind the front panel. The button is right next to the SD card slot.
Then turn on the wii motes so that the blue lights are blinking. Next, push the red button on the wii motes which is located behind the battery cover. This should sync the wii motes to the console.

Console does not respond to all remote actions, ie no cursor on screen,only the minus , home , and plus buttons work i have tried several remotes and changed the sensor bar.


I would try to re-sync the controller to the console.
1. Power on Wii
2. remove battery cover from wii remote; press sync button on remote, will cause LED's on remote to blink.
3. Press the sync button on the console (it is located in the memory card holder on the front of the console)
4. The remote is connected once the LED stops blinking. The lit LED indicated what player # the connected controller refers to.

If you are still having trouble then delete the configuration info first and then re-sync the controller to the Wii.
Do this by holding the SYNC button on the console for 15 seconds after turning the unit on (once you see the health and safety screen). After you do this you will need to re-sync the controller individually.

It also warns of bright light sources like sunlight near the sensor bar, highly reflective surfaces (mirros, etc.) behind the sensor bar, sources of infrared radiation (portable heaters or fireplaces) or radio interference from cordless phones, cell phones, etc. as possible causes of interference. See pages 22, 32, 34 of your Wii owner's manual for full information, or call 1-800-255-3700 if you are still having difficulty.

Make sure you have paired both remotes to your Wii console.
Open the little door on the front of the Wii (under the disc slot), and open the battery cover of the Wii remote (but leave the batteries in).

Push the red button on the Wii (next to the SD card slot), then push the red button on the Wii remote (next to the batteries). You should see the Wii remote's lights blink.

Do the same for your other Wii remote.

Now on the bottom row of 4 lights on the Wii remote, one should have the first light lit, and the other should have the second light lit. You should also be able to see a cursor for each remote on the Wii Menu.
