You have a blown capacitor on the controller port, only solution is to either replace the capacitor or replace the controller port with one that is working.

I have fixed many with this issue and I am 100% sure that this is what the issue with your machine.

No power

maybe you have it facing the wrong direction, or a positon where the remotes cannot pick up connection from it. This is a common error so dont buy a new controller... it wont help!

I dont want to sync my remote each time i play the wii how can this be resolved?

a lot of times the controller starts acting strange once the battery starts to get low. (and if you drop it!)
so if you know someone borrow their WII controller and test it. if the controller works fine then your other controller is probably damaged. a new WII controller is about $40 so you could either buy a new one or get a used one from wherever like craigslist or something.

My wii controllers wont work

you dont have lights on any one of your controllers?
have you tried them with another console or another controller with your console? this way you can find out where the problem lies with either the controllers or the console. to me it sounds like the console is the problem. How long have you had the wii and did the conttrollers ever work?

My controls wont work

Hi, Sounds like you need to check the sensor bar. Make sure it is plugged in or if you have a remote sensor bar check it's batteries. If this doesn't work you can clear the console sync info by turning off the console power, unplug the console for a few seconds, plug it back in and turn the power back on. When you get the Health and Safety screen, press and hold the console synchro button for 15 seconds. Now resync your wimotes by using the red buttons in the remote battery area rather than the screen sync. If you need more help let me know as there are other things like a stuck button on a controller to look for. Good luck!

Xbox controller will not sync with console

Disconnect the power cord from the 360 for a couple of minutes.

Plug it back in and turn it on. Power turn on a different controller than the one that isn't working and sync it with the 360.

Now turn on the original controller that wouldn't sync, and use the sync buttons on the 360 and controller. It should sync up and go to player 2 slot.

Everything should be good now, that's how I fixed mine.
