Hey wva54ccc,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, holding the sync button down for a prolonged period does clear all synced devices from the Wii's memory. In order to "start from scratch" and resync your remotes, you'll want to do the following:

1) Turn the Wii off and unplug it for at least 1-2 minutes. After this time has elapsed, plug the Wii back in.

2) Turn the power on again, and press the "Sync" button on the front of your Wii console for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen is being displayed. This will clear all previously synced devices from the Wii's memory.

3) To sync a remote/accessory to the Wii, you'll need to press the small red button located just beneath the batteries. When you do so, the blue lights on the front of the remote/accessory should blink.

4) Next, quickly press the "Sync" button on the Wii console again.

5) After the "Player" LED light stops blinking and stays lit, the remote/accessory is synced and no further actions are necessary with that remote.

6) Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 for each remote/accessory you wish to sync to your Wii.

Should following these steps not resolve the problem, I'd strongly suggest checking out Nintendo's Wii remote troubleshooting website for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,

2. Select Disk Chanell and press Start
3. Remove SD Card slot cover on the console and the battery cover on the Balance Board
4. Press and hold for 2-5 sec the SYNC button on the Balance board. You will see a blinking light.
5. Press the Sync button on the Wii console and after a while you will get non-blinking light.

How can i re connect the wii fit balance board to my wii ?


Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging.
The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually.
These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.

Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):

Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.


Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.

Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.

Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.

Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.

Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.

The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.

    I have a wii fit and tried to sych it to my console. I think I held the sych button on the balance board too long and messed up the remotes. They won't work at all now. Please help! Thank You


    Ensure your batteries are fresh. Ensure that the Wii Fit (or other Balance Board game) is started up completely before pressing the power button. Try turning off your wii and unplugging from the power source for a few minutes. The plug back in and turn on. At the initial warning screen press and hold the sync button on the will console for about 4 seconds. You will have to re-sync your wii remotes. Next make sure the disc for the game you are going to use the balance board with is in the system and start the game. Then try to sync the balance board.

    Wii fit balance board


    You need to sync the balance board with the console. Instructions are in the manual. Sync button for board is in battery compartment and sync button for console is in panel under reset button.

    Took a few tries for me, be carefule not to hold sync button on console down for longer than 10 seconds because it will deregister all wii remotes.
