SOURCE: Three games on wii play won't won't work

This is actually the "Wii Play" game. You must unlock each game by successfully completing the previous game. In this case, I believe that you must play, and finish, Billiards or Laser Hockey to unlock Fishing, then complete Fishing to play Charge!, and so on.

Good luck, and enjoy the games!

SOURCE: another problem with second wii remote for mario cart

Does the why remote work on other games? If it doesn't you need the synsochrise the wii remote. You do this by preesing the red button on the barrities slot and the one behind the cover where the SD card slot is at the same time fixing the problem.

SOURCE: can't get 2nd player working on Indiana Jones Lego Wii game

The thing to get the two Wiimotes to work is to press the reset button on the Wii and on all the Wiimotes at the ame time. If you after that restart the Wii, it should automatically connect to both Wiimotes when you press A on them. If you then luanch the game, the two Wiimotes should still be connected. If not, just press A again. Then press whatever button you ned for multiplayer (+ I believe) and you shold now have 2 players. I hopethis helps, Yannick.

SOURCE: my wii remotes do not charge on the docking

Do you have the Rechargeable batteries for the Wii-Motes in? (Special)
If not, Try wiggling them around and see if the light comes on, or, they may already be fully charged, Also, make sure the charging dock is plugged in. You'll need to remove the jackets the controllers are in to charge them.If you still can't get them to charge, I'd recommend checking Nintendo, Or the manual for the charging dock. (It is a charging dock, Right? Because there is a dock that goes on the Wii that's NOT supposed to charge them)

How to diassemble the energizer pl-6238

1) Remove the base using pliers to push the tabs in.
2) After removing the base, remove the 4 screws that were revealed.
3) Remove the silver strip (on the same side as previously mentioned screws) using a spudger. My station was old and the glue was quite dry, so it popped right off. You could attempt heating up the area as well to loosen up the glue.
4) You can now separate the charging station.

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!

I have an energizer dock charginig system for my Wii remotes. and after a few minutes of inserting one of them, the red light begins flashing and it does not charge the remote. Model PL 7522

I Sell the exact units at my shop and the great thing about them is its warranty they have a 2 year limited warranty on them go to for more info on this as well. this was taken from their website

1. Should your charge station's lights start blinking before or after you have placed the Wii remote controllers, it may be an issue with the batteries and not the charge station itself. We recommend first that you switch the batteries around for each controller and place them to be charged again for a period of time. If this isolates the problem to the battery we can send a replacement battery pack to you. Should this not clear the problem and the blinking continues you could take the product back to the store or to send it back to us so that it can be exchanged for a replacement unit.
2. If after being left in charge mode for a full charging cycle and the batteries do not fully charge, or hold a charge, then contact us for a replacement."

hope that helps and please feel free to thumbs up if your satisfied or even better write a testimonial!!! thanks and good luck

I haven't played my wii in a while and have just plugged it all in and my controllers are not working. They don't seem to be charging in the docking station, their individual docks are not lighting up...

Yes they should light up blue when they are charging.
Double check and make sure your docking station is still plugged in and turned on.

Most Docking stations are third party accessories, meaning, they were not manufactured by Nintendo. Some of them do not work very well.

If all else fails, remove the rechargeable battery pack from the Wii Remote and put regular AA batteries inside of it. The Wii Remote should work just fine.

Personally, I prefer to use rechargeable AA batteries rather than charging packs or docking stations. The charge packs/docking stations just never seem to work as well as they're supposed to. The rechargeable AA's work great and they're much more versatile since they're not limited to use in the Wii.

What does flashing red light on wii dock charging station mean??

Make sure that when charging the battery pack it must be attached to a wii-mote otherwise this may cause a flashing red light. If the battery pack is attached to the wii-mote and you still have a flashing red light this may indicate that there could a problem with the battery pack itself.

I have a wii system and use the energizer nimh battery pack with the wii charger. When I put them in the charger it flashes red. Reminds me of my camera battery charger, but I have learned how to reset...

I have this issue with one of the batteries in my set. (Purchased last summer). It is a PL-7522

It seams to be the battery, as I have tried combination of charging ports and controllers. The other battery seams fine.

WII Recharger station not working

This may sound silly, but did you remove the silicone sleeve AND the tether strap from your Wiimote before inserting into the charge stand?

If so, I suggest returning the unit for a refund and purchasing a 15-minute charger and 4 more NiMH rechargeable batteries than what you have units for.

Jan 19, 2009 | Nyko Charge Station for Nintendo Wii

1 Answer

I have two Wii remotes with rechargeable batteries that were working fine at first, but now one of the remotes won't even turn on or light up. I've tried re-syncing the remote, but it doesn't work.

I called Nintendo and they said that the charging station most likely fryed my controller. Nintendo doesn't currently make any charging stations and recommends that if you want rechargable batteries, to buy the ones that come in a package and recharge in a seperate dock that doesn't stay inside the Wii remote. The charging stations that are out do say Wii on them, but they are not Nintendo approved and may cause problems like mine. They said to always look for the Nintendo seal of quality if you want a trustworthy product. As for me, I have returned my charging dock and the new remote.
