I can think of three things that might be going on:

  1. The batteries in the remote have died. Just change them out and you should be good to go.
  2. You need to resync your Wii remote. To do this, first make sure your Wii is on. After that, open the slot right under the disc tray of the Wii and remove the battery cover from the controller in question. Press the orangish sync button on the Wii console and then press the sync button on the Wii remote. You may need to do this once or twice for it to work, and make sure you're close to the Wii when you're doing it as its range is limited.
  3. Your controller is broken and needs to be replaced. Hopefully this isn't the case.
Good luck!

Charging pad the remote batteries are dead, won't hold charge anymore...

Sadly that's how they make the new rechargable batteries for controllers. You are supposed to recycle that and buy new. Luckily you can find chargers for the wii very cheap nowadays. I have used a few different chargers and have found the Nyko brand ones are junk so steer clear of those. The Duracell induction chargers however work very nicely. You just set the wii remote down on the charge pad and it charges fairly quickly. My kids run around and even if the remote shifts a bit it will continue charging. Hope this helps!

When i plug either of my gamecube controllers into the 1st port on my wii, they only move side to side not front to back

Hard trying to fix game cube controllers specifically because i don't think Nintendo really sells game cube controllers anymore. But try to plug it back in and fourth. I usually really go tough and move the joystick around, works for me, you can try doing that if it doesn't work you might have to buy a new one.

Problem getting wii GUITAR working with RockBand 2 after a resync

first of all you should make sure you have fresh batteries and then try the special resynch via the red dot like button on the inside of the controller (press it at the same time as the one in sd card slot) if that doesnt work try just moving closer to the wii at far distance the controller signal gets weak. if its not that then its a hardware issue

A friend fetched their wii fit board but we couldn't sync it, so we left it, but now our wii is not syncing up with the wii remotes anymore, can you help me please

Re-sync your controllers to the Wii. On the front of the Wii there is a flap - lift it and there is a red button - push the button. On your controller under the battery cover there is a red button - push the red button.

I think you need to register the wii controller to the wii because sometimes the PS3 when you buy another controller you have to register the device to the Ps3 before you can play so i think the Wii may have the same controller registeration. So if it doesn't work try using the controller you 1st got from the box because in order to use the controllers it has to be registered hope it helped.
