Re: Wii doesn't work
Hey mushbean, If the motion sensor in your Wii remote is not functioning properly, Nintendo has recommended that you try the following: 1) Hold the Wii remote with the button side down. 2) Gently tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times. 3) Check the remote to see if it properly responds to motion. Should this not solve the problem, you may want to check out the online FAQ and troubleshooting guide developed by Nintendo for all Wii remote issues.The FAQ can be found through the following website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp Hope this helps you out.

You can either purchase a new brand-name or third party Wii Sensor Bar for 9-20 dollars at various online shopping websites, such as Amazon and eBay, or you can go into your local gaming shop (e.g. Gamestop) and purchase a wired or wireless Wii Sensor Bar.
There are two ways to sync the Wii remote with the Wii console after pressing the red sync button like you did:
1) Press the "1" and "2" buttons on the Wii remote until the lights begin to flash. This method provides a temporary connection to the Wii.
2) Open the battery cover on the Wii remote and press the red button next to the batteries. This creates a permanent connection or "pair" between the Wii remote and the Wii console.
Based on your description, it sounds like you are using method #1. In order to power on the Wii when the Wii's red light is on (meaning the machine is turned off) and start playing games like you want, method #2 must be used.
Imagine method #1 as "guest mode". If a friend comes over with their Wii remote and wants to play a game, you would open up the game first, use method #1, and your friend would temporarily be connected to the Wii. Using method #1 is like "owner mode" that lets the Wii remote turn the console on and off and always stay connected to it.
Hope this helps!
Open up the back of the Wii remote and hold down the small red button by the batteries. I had this problem when I bought a second-hand remote and even the reset trick didn't work. If this continues to happen, please help both of us!
If so, sounds like they need to be synced to the Wii. When the controller looks for a connection and doesn't find it, they will shut down to save battery life.
You need to turn on the Wii with the Wii Remote [press power button on the Wii remote that is working] then click into the Wii Menu by clicking the HOME button on the Wii remote. You will then click to Wii Remote Settings. From there, click RECONNECT on the Connection menu. That will instruct you to press 1 & 2 on each remote to sync them.
1. Your sensor bar is no good, can you get the pointer icon on the wii's main menu to work properly? To fix this you'll need to contact Nintendo and get a new sensor bar or buy one of the third party ones, Nintendo should help you out though.
2. The accelerometer in the wii is stuck, which does happen from time to time. To fix this turn the Wii remote so the buttons face towards the floor and slap the back of the remote firmly(not too hard!) with the palm of your hand. It should work if that is the problem.
3. The accelerometer is broken or otherwise rendered useless. To fix this you'll have to contact Nintendo.
To get a hold of Nintendo 1-800-255-3700 they're very friendly and it never takes very long(I got helped in 5 minutes the day after Wii was released.) Best of all, Nintendo doesn't outsource!
Wii Remote Syncing problem is one of the common problem of Nintendo Wii. You may check out the DIY Wii Fix Guide,

knowledge. I hope this guide will solve your problem. It also gives
