It could be that the batteries are old an unable to hold a new charge, or the connection points could be dirty.

You can try to clean them with a Q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol. (unplug it first!)

My game only works when on charge. When the charger is pulled out the games turns off. When on the charger base there is a constant blinking green light.


  • That blinking green light means the rechargeable batteries are no longer holding a charge which is also why the unit shuts down when the power feed is removed. You just need a new set or rechargeable batteries is all. 4 AA (or LR6 depending where you are)

  • Please note that when the charger rapidly blinks green, in addition to the batteries that are failing, they can overheat and leak. Please, cease to use those batteries and take them to a recycle place before they begin to leak from trying to charge when they are not safe to charge anymore.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

It doesn't really have a problem. I just got the control pad second hand and would like to know some instructions. On Off Vibrate. The rest I can figure out but am not sure if I have it on properly or...


The User's guide is available here: http://www.madcatz.com/Default.asp?Page=125 .

The vibration feature will only be available if the batteries are fully charged, the motor is turned on (physical switch on the control to the left of the low battery indicator) and for some games, the vibration option is enabled in the game (see the Options menu of the game).

To make sure that the unit is on, make sure the batteries are charged, the base unit is fully plugged into the game system and set the power switch to on. Then confirm if the controller works in the game. (If the unit is on but in the power-saving mode, press Back or Start on the controller to wake it.)

I hope this helps.

My wii remopte won't charge. The battery dies and when I try to charge it, it only charges for about 30 seconds then says that it's charged and it's obviously not. (please help, thanks)


Your battery or charger is probably toast - this is the exact same thing my remotes did, so I went to Amazon and bought new batteries and charger - now they work fine. The batteries are designed for so many charges then they die.If, like me, you park your remotes on the charger stand when not in use that counts as charging whether or not the batteries need it so it would be better to lay your remotes next to your Wii or charger base if they don't need charging. Also - charging the batteries when they don't need it can shorten the battery's life, depending on the specific type of battery you bought. Before buying a replacement battery, find out the specific type of battery and whether or not it requires charging before getting low or needs to run out before charging. You can get this info from the seller of the battery. Hope this helps!!

I have a psp and i dont know if the psp is broken or is it my charger or battery please help!!!!!!! sony model psp-110 battery pack 3.6


Solution 1: Try to borrow from your friend psp charger and charge it if charging. this maybe the problem.

Solution 2. Try to borrow replace the battery if it will charge. This may be the problem.

Otherwise the problem would be the psp unit itself that you are using while at battery charging. Hence your are playing and moving, you have tendency to damage the charging port of your psp. This maybe the problem and need replacement of parts.

Wii remote cursor hand not appearing on the screen


I am not sure but I had the same problem when I got a second remote hand set and my kids knew the answer. I first thing I would do is to ensure that you have new batteries in the handsets. Secondly there should be a small button inside the handset. I think that you need to push it to synchronize the handset to the Wii base station. I hope that helps

After charging the wii remotes in the base until


I don't think you are doing anything wrong, just the setup you are useing is'nt as effective as you would like.

I use the energizer rechargeable (NiMH) batteries with the energizer 15 minute charger. The other batteries and chargers just don't seem to work as well. I get several hours of play time on a single charge, where I was only getting about 1/2 hour to an hour with the others. **No I am not a paid endorser, I just use and like the product!**

Hope this helps, please let me know how you end up or if I can help more.

Charge light orang on for a second and turn off unit not charged.


This kind of problem is usually caused by either of this 3 things: Either the problem is the battery not being able to charge anymore(bettery would need to be replaced), or the charger does not give any charge to the batter(recommend try another charger), or last would be the console charger port( would need to replace console, or repair charger por,not recommended)
