Question about Nintendo Wii Remote Controller

Open Question

I was playing a game and all of a sudden a message appeared on my TV screen saying that connection with the Wii remote had been interrupted, and that I needed to press A to continue. The Wii remote then ceased to function, so I turned the Wii off and back on. Now, neither of my Wii remotes will come on or function. I have changed the batteries in one and tried to sync it back up with the console but it won't even turn on. The Wii console is functional, it is the remotes that aren't working.

SOURCE: Cant sync wii balance board

I know it's been a while since you have posted and have prob already figured it out. But just in case this may help someone else. Try turning off your wii and unplugging from the power source for a few minutes. The plug back in and turn on. At the initial warning screen press and hold the sync button on the wii console for about 4 sec. You will have to resync your wii remotes. Next make sure the disc for the game you are going to use the balance board with is in the system and start the game. Then try to sync the balance board.

SOURCE: Unable to sync Balance Board and its knocking the remotes out too

When you are prompted to press the sync buttons you just have to press and release just once the sync button on the console and then on the board. Do not hold the buttons in because you just end up un syncing everything!

SOURCE: I cannot connect the wii fit board to the console.

Replace the Wii Remote batteries. Grab 2 AA size batteries, and insert them into the Wii Remote properly. Look closely at the battery slots, and you should see 2 little battery icons. Insert them correctly according to the icons. Communitcations with the Wii Remote should be restored. For more information and solutions, read page 34 in the Wii Operations Manual: System Setup.

Epic Mickey 2 wii on wii u remote and nunchuck problems.

Do you think it's the battery? Or maybe the back. If the wii loses power, either the game you are in will immediately pause or it will continue moving in the same direction you pointed it in before the wii lost power

Hey, Cant seem to find the AV button on my remote to connect the wii?

You didn't say what type of TV Remote you have, however, generally,make sure that you have connected the Wii according to package directions. Your Wii should show under games when you click on your input button and see your input menu on the screen.. Remember to turn it back to your TV input when you are finished playing.

Have fun with Wii. If you are still unable to connect, please get back to me. Thank you for using FixYa.

Pokemon Battle REvolution rental can't start the game

it could be simply that the remotes are not turned on.or it could be that they are not pointing it at the motion sensor or they are standing too close.
I would advise to stand atleast 5 feet away from the screen
note that the blue pokeball is the wii remote pointer

2nd Wii Remote will only not connect in Link's Crossbow Training

This is a ONE player game. It won't connect because the Wii isn't looking for any additional controllers. It's not a problem.
