That is quite unusual behaviour from your Wii. In the forst instance it would be a good idea to RE-SYNCHRONIZE your remotes and balance board with your Wii

    Standard Mode Synchronization

    Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote and that they are full/charged.

    Go to the Wii Menu. (Channel Grid)


  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.


  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.


  3. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.


  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

  5. This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

    (source http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/setupWiiRemote.jsp#Synch)


Option 2: There might be a glitch in the software which can often be fixed by re-downloading a fresh copy. Download the latest update by going to Settings->Console settings->Internet->Select your connection type->test connection. After the connection it will ask if you would like to perform a system update.
Option 3 If you are still having problems, try to identify if it is only happening when using a combination of some of the devices. Do you have the problem when the balance board is off?
There is also the possibility that there is a electrical fault with your wii. If the above does not help contact Nintendo support at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/
Good luck

My wii remote wont turn on, i even tried a couple different new batteries but still no lights or anything


Have you tried syncing the Wii remotes? To sync, turn the Wii on, open the back of the remote and then press a red button that says "SYNC". Then open the SD card slot in the front of the Wii and press another red "SYNC" button. If you do this, your Wii remotes should be able to turn on.

If your Wii remotes still don't turn on, visit support.nintendo.com

Or call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance on your Wii.

I need help with wii, I don't really know how to turn it off? should I use the remote control to turn it off or should I turn it off from the console, I want to teach my boy how to do it the right way...


either works fine. i suggest customers use the remote control switch, the switch on the console is on a very flimsy pc board and it can crack over time or if pressed too roughly. if the switch in the remote breaks for some reason it's cheaper to replace a wii-mote than a console.

To sync the Wii remote, turn on your Wii.
Then open the back of the Wii remote (where you put the batteries) and press the SYNC button.
Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii. Press the SYNC button.
The controller should turn on.

The remotes flash then switch off, i have synced them again but still wont work.


start with the basics FRESH BATTERIES:

1) Fresh batteries should be in each.

2) Turn on the Wii with Player 1's remote or the button on the console.

3) Open your SD Card cover and press Sync. Very shortly afterward, press the red button on your P1 Remote (in the battery cover). Lights will blink and then will be showing a light in the first square, denoting the connection is complete and it's P1.

4) Do the same as Step 3 for the P2 remote. For the P2 remote, after the blinking, then the second square will be lit, meaning it's P2.



That is the Standard Connection. It is tied to the Wii until it's re-done.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After you attempt to synch them (pressing the red synch button on the wii, followed by the red synch button underneith the battery cover of the wiimote), make sure the wii is turned on and press the buttons 1 and 2 on the wiimote at the same time to have it search for recognized bluetooth devices (ie. your wii).

_________________________________________________

found this article too.

this should help you.. leave a testimonial if I helped.
The first thing I did while the Wii was turned on was that I tried to sync the Wii Remote by pressing the "1" + "2" buttons at the same time. The lights at the bottom of the controller flashed for about 30 seconds, but never received the signal from the Wii. Bummer.

The next step I followed was to hit the sync button on the Wii Remote (Wiimote). Then immediately opened the cover for the opening where the SD Flash card goes and pressed the sync button on the Wii. 30 seconds of flashing, and no result. Double bummer.

Finally, after some Google searching, I found a couple of message boards where people had to press the Sync button on the Wii (not the Wii Remote) for 15 seconds to reset it. I performed this step and then pressed sync on the Wii Remote. The 2nd controller synced up almost immediately. What a relief!

Apparently the problem lies in the fact that the Bluetooth technology being used has to be manually synced in order for it to connect to the Wii. It does not make much sense at all. You would think they could be pre-authorized in order to minimize time and ease of use. In addition, you really have to be careful that your other controllers are turned on while syncing or else the controller that you are trying to put on channel 3 might end up on channel 2! This happened to me on one occasion.

Good luck with getting your Wiimotes in sync with your Wii. Hopefully this helped!

I've tried to play some balance games on the wii fit and the last few times i've tried it it says communications with the wii remote have failed please push "a" to reconnect (HELP PLEASE) i'm getting...


First, I would check the batteries in the Wii Remote. Low batteries will make the Wii Remote signal flicker. After that, I would re-sync the Wii remote by opening the back of the remote and pressing the sync button, after you turn the Wii on, of course.

My wi power source just quit


Guest: Rechargable batteries are only 1.2 V each. You should get up to 4.8 V.

I highly suggest running your Wii Fit on nothing other than Alkaline batteries. I've had my Wii Fit for over 3 months and still use the original batteries.

If you feel like you need rechargables, that's fine, but I recommend a quality set of regular AA rechargable batteries that comes with a quick charger (IE: 1-hour). Stick to the same brand of batteries and buy enough for each Wii-Mote, Wireless Guitar, Wii Fit Balance Board, etc.

Amy - Keep in mind that your Wii Fit balance board will ONLY turn on when your program (ie: Wii Fit) is loaded and ready to go. Since the balance board takes up one of the four available Wii-Mote channels, make sure all but one Wii-Mote is turned off before starting Wii-Fit.

Problems with a Wii game


if you are in the mulitplayer mode and still have trouble adding the remote then try syncing the remote with the wii first by pressing the home button then go into the wii remote settings on the bottom then re-sync each control. Then try going back into mulitplayer mode and try again or while the screen is on when you want to add more players press the '+' button.
