Wii fit board

While I am playing with my wii fit board it suddenly loses the connection with the consul. The blue light blinks and I have to reset the board. What is causing this?

    I have had the same problem - but only when at a friend's house - the main difference? the carpet is thicker. I am going to try adding the little "feet" things and see if that helps. I found if I put 2 thick layers of cardboard below the board it helps but always worry it will slip. Not sure if that is the problem, but is my thoughts at the moment.

    My Wii board has lost the link to the console, just a flashing blue light or sometimes it just won't work at all. If i leave the batteries out overnight the blue flashing light comes back when the batteries are installed...but it is not a battery issue... my board still will not sync at all with the console after following your 5 steps. Any more ideas ?

    I am having the same problem but it seems to get continually worse.

    I've had Wii Fit and the balance board for 3-6 months now and it has recently developed an issue whereby it will lose the connection part way through longer exercises like 'Free step', 'Free run' and the boxing game. At first I thought the batteries were low but it happens even after installing fresh batteries so that's not the problem. The balance board and Wii console are pretty close when in use so it shouldn't be a wireless range / interference issue.



    I plan to call Nintendo tech support shortly; I suspect they'll walk me through all the regular steps to sync the connections etc... And then ask me to send the board in for repair. I'll report back if I find anything useful to help address this issue.

My husband fixed my wii balance board, it's the sync button. The button on the switch is too long and if there's any lateral stress it resets. The switch toggles, not just up and down when you push the sync button. Hubby took the board apart, took out the sync switch, trimmed the button by 1/2 the length, it's now recessed and when there's lateral stress, no resetting or re-sync happens. It works perfectly and never loses connection no matter what i'm playing! You can still re-sync the board, but need to use a paperclip or pen to push on the botton

    FYI all, I tried the solution above that pattifnp posted, and it worked perfectly. our WII fit kept losing sync with the board during marching and aerobics games, and it WAS the red sync button getting wiggled around. Affter i took the board apart and cut the switch down to nearly nothing, the board no longer drops connection dozens of times in the span of one marching game. I suspect if you are using the board on high pile carpet you may also be having the carpet push the sync button. In any case this worked great, thanks Patti!

    First check the battery or replace it if you feel is running out of energy.



    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).

    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. Start the game from the Wii Menu, then sync the Wii Balance Board from the opening screen of the game.

I wish I had a solution, but I don't. Instead, I'm having the same problem. It happens most when we're doing one of the aerobic games, either stepping or boxing. Sometimes when I'm doing Free Step, it will happen two or three times in a half an hour. It's very aggravating.

We are not having issues with the Wii-motes, and we have done the whole resyncing routine twice. The batteries are new, and both my husband and I are well below the 'weight limit'. We do use it daily, though. I think we just have a faulty unit, but I haven't decided whether it's worth it to me to send it in and do without it until it's repaired.

The wii fit game is telling me to push the power button on the balance board with my foot. It blinks blue and that's it. The batteries are fine. So what do I do?


You need to sync the balance board with the Wii. It's easy to do and takes 10 seconds.

1) Start Wii Fit.
2) When it asks you to push the power button as you're describing, open the SD card slot on the front of the Wii and observe the red button.

3) Now, flip over the balance board. Remove the battery cover on the bottom of it, and press the red button beside the batteries, and the blue light should start to blink.
tkahill_0.gif

4) While the blue light on the balance board is still blinking, quickly press the red button on the Wii. If they are both blinking at the same time, they should be syncing to each other.

5) Your Wii Fit Balance Board should now be synced with your Wii! If it has been synced successfully, you will no longer need to sync it, and should now automatically connect when the button is pressed with your foot.
