Our wii has been boxed away awhile we cant get it to reconize our emotes can help


Here is a step by step instruction on Syncing your Wii remotes to you console!!http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/setupWiiRemote.jsp#Synch

Synchronizing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console Synchronizing the Wii Remote to a Wii console allows the Wii Remote to communicate with the console. The Wii Remote included with your system should already be synchronized to your console. However, all additional Wii Remotes you use with your system also need to be synced in order to function properly..
There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing):
  • STANDARD MODE - The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original Wii Remote. Once synchronized, the Wii Remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite the settings by syncing the remote to a different console. For instructions on Standard Mode syncing, please click here.

  • ONE TIME MODE - This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a Wii console other than your own, or to use a friend's remote on your console. It can also be used to change the order of the Wii Remotes, without the need to turn off the Wii console. One Time Mode does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the Wii Remote. In this mode, the Wii Remote will only communicate with the Wii console while the power is on. When the power is turned off, the Wii Remote will lose its sync with the Wii Console. For instructions on One Time Mode setup, please click here.
Note: Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.
Standard Mode Synchronization
Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote (how to).
  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. wiiremotesynchstandard.gifThis procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

    One Time Mode SynchronizationNote: This mode temporarily removes Standard Mode synchronization setup for all Wii Remotes until the power of the Wii console is turned off. When the power is turned back on again, the Standard Mode settings will return.
  1. Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.
  2. installation.gif
  3. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Button menu.

  5. Select the Reconnect Option.
  6. wiiremotesynchotm1.gif
  7. 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.

We received the wii system w/ a battery charger included ,but there were no instructions as to whether you can recharge batts. w/o having the them in the unit ,what the red,green light means what the...


Installing the Batteries
    Important Note: If you would like to use rechargeable batteries, the only type of battery recommended are Nickel Metal Hydride batteries. When it comes to using rechargeable batteries, you must follow manufacturer guidelines for safety and proper usage. Failure to do so could cause damage to the Wii Remote and void the warranty.

  1. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote and insert two AA batteries, using the plus (+) and minus (-) guides in the Wii Remote's battery compartment to insert the batteries in the proper direction.
    wiiremotebatteryinsert.gif

  2. Be sure to insert the minus (-) end first when inserting new batteries, and remove the plus (+) end first when replacing the batteries.

  3. Replace the battery cover.
  4. Go to the Next Step (Wearing the Wrist Strap) >




Wearing the Wrist Strap

  1. Place your hand through the wrist strap and hold the remote firmly in your hand. wiiremotewrist1.gif

  2. Slide the strap lock towards your wrist so that the strap will not fall off. Do not over tighten the strap lock so that it's uncomfortable. It should be tight enough to hold the wrist strap in place. wiiremotewrist2.gif

Wii Remote Turning Funtion Doesn't Work on Mario Kart


Your wii sensor bar probably went out, replace it. They sell wireless ones at wal-mart for $20. If you want to make absolute sure that the bar is broken, take a video camera and take a quick video of the wii bar while it's connected and the wii is on. If you see four little blue lights on each side then you're wii bar is ok, if any are gone it should be replaced. The fact that all the buttons are still working means that your wii is still communicating with remote using bluetooth, but since it's not sensing any motion, it probably means that the problem is sensor bar related.

Wii remote keeps losing communication with the main unit


It sounds like your sensor bar is going out. I have heard from numerous people that they go bad and start acting very sporadic( somedays they work and somedays they don't) Also check to make sure your bar is sitting level on your T.V. and not pointing up or down. If it is the slightest bit off then the bar can't "see" the remotes all the time.
