Please check this first. Open the battery cover of the dead Wiimote then press the red sync button. If 4 indicators are flashing you may do the following steps.

(1)Use a normal Wiimote to be the #1 controlloer
(2)Enter any Wii game which supports 2 or more controllers
(3)When the game's title screen is displaying, add up the 2nd controller by pressing the red button of Wiimote and the red button of Wii (i.e. standard sync procedure)
(4)If you are lucky, the dead Wiimote will be back to work

My wii remote wont turn on. when I push the on button the four lights at the bottom flash a couple of times then nothing happens and it wont recognise it on our tv...?

Try syncing the wiimote to the wii itself. Underneath the SD card cover on the front of the Wii and inside the battery compartment on the wiimote are red buttons. Hold both of these at the same time for 5-10 seconds and then try again

Sometimes my charecters start walking by themselves and the remote wont work or the golf club wont swing

Try replacing the batteries in your WiiMote. It sounds like the power level is low so the system and WiiMote are dropping connection intermittently.

My wii mote isnt working, I press the power button and the little squares at the bottom start flashing, then after a couple seconds it stops. It wont respond to the console.It has fresh batteries, so I...

I am sure the wii manual have this info to read but just in case you dont have the manual:

First you need to sync the Wiimote to the Wii, in the batteries slot is a red button, and in the wii's SD slot is another red button, touch both buttons (dont need to touch both at the same time but dont wait too much between each one) and try again moving the wiimote to the screen and testing it.

If all the blue lights turn off maybe your batteries are dead.

Sometimes old batteries drop acid into your wiimote circuit and might damage the wiimote, that happens frequently with alkaline or carbon batteries so is good to buy the rechargeable ones.

Wii wont turn on


If there is no LED on, then the most likely reason is, that your wii isn't getting power. So the problem, is with the plugs, and the power adapter. If you have a friend who has a wii, try testing his power adapter on your wii. Make sure your cords are completely plugged in, on both sides, (the outlet and the wii) then press the power button on the wii. If that dosent work, try turning it on with one of your wiimotes. If that dosent work, that means your wiimote is not synchronized with your wii. To sync. it, open the sd card cover on the front of the wii, press the red button above the sd card slot. Then open the bottom of your wiimote, (where the batteries are) and press the small red button that should be beside the batteries. Then hold the wiimote close to the wii,then after its done flashing, press the power button on the wiimote and also, try plugging your power cord into another outlet. If it still won't work, you've got a broken wii, so you better send it to get replaced or fixed, again as suggested. DON'T OPEN IT! You could loose your warranty if you open it, so it's safest not to. Hope you get it to work

Thank you !!

Bought new wii remote and wont power up

The wii remote won't power up the Wii itself, or you can't get the wiimote to come on?

If it won't turn on the Wii, it may have to be synced with the system. Not really sure, though. But to sync it, take of the back of the wiimote(the battery cover) and open the little flap on the Wii. There should be red buttons in each. With both on(turn the wii on manually with the power button on the system), press both red buttons at the same time. Alternatively, you can go to the menu and sync wiimotes from there.

If the wiimote won't come on, make sure the batteries are new/charged.

How do i use the controller to start the game

okay.. to turn the wii on through the wiimote hold the power button on the top left? corner of the wiimote.. that will turn the wii on..
if the controller just wont respond at all to the wii then you need to sync it to the wii.. this can be done by pressing the red dot on the back of the wiimote with the batteries, and also press the red rectangle on the wii behind the hinged flap in the front (where the sd cards go)..

Wii controller wont pick up guitar controller. The guitar has the wii remote, and have plugged the vocals into USB - it picks up the mic for vocals but not the guitar

Make sure that you've synced the Wimote with the Wii. you can do this by pressing the red button on the wii by the SD Card slot and press the red button on the Wiimote under the battery cover. You can also sync the Wiimote's by pressing the home button, clicking on the Wiimote on the screen, and then clicking Reconnect the Wiimotes I believe. When doing this, just hold down the 1 and 2 button. If your Wiimotes don't need to be sync then theres most likey something wrong with your Guitar Hero Guitar. that's the only other possible outcome I think. Unless then Nunchuck hookup is somehow broken. Doubtful though. Those Wiimotes are FEIRCELY strong. My dog, who can chew though a hard plastic chair, could only leave dents in the Wiimote he chewed on. (Bad Dog!) Hope you get it working!

Rockband - WII - wont let me add more than one band member!!!

When starting up Rock Band, make sure that no more than one Wiimote is activated (two if you are using one for a bass/guitar). If any are, they will over ride the drums and guitar in priority.

Make sure that only the drums, wireless guitar, microphone (controlled by the Wiimote) and 2nd guitar (whether the fender type with built in wireless OR, but NOT AND, a 2nd guitar that uses a Wiimote).

If more than the max number of wiimotes are turned on when you power up the game, reset your console, and wait to start Rockband until the other wiimotes no longer show a light.

Good luck!`
