My wii remote charger has stopped charging the batteries in the wii remote - help!!

    We've had the same problem right from the beginning. We've tried A-pressing the reset button on the back, B- turning the Wii on & off again, C- unplugging the charger, re-plugging & re-starting it, D-changing the batteries for new rechargables, 1st for 900 mAmp, then 800 mAmp ones (we've yet to locate alternate 700 mAmp like the ones that came with it). All it does is flash the lower front lights red & light in back blue & not charge. We also returned the 2nd Wii-mote we got with the Wii Play Game as it never worked either. The new one now works with regular batteries, but neither Wii-mote it yet to work with any of the rechargable batteries. ..... PLEASE HELP?!?!?

Problem is either one battery is discharged and the other is full or corrosion on battery terminal tops or batteries are defective. the red lights flash when the unit sences that the batteries have a problem with the induction charge. simple test is to using a meter measure the batteries or discharge the unit with a wire and a 2.2 volt bulb (flashlight bulb) once discharged, unplug the charger unit for over 10 secs to reset it. then plug it in and try the batteries in the packs again. if still inop then they are done for.

If this is a Nyko charger buy a new one and take the broken one back. This is a common problem.

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    Do you leave the the wii remotes on the chargers at all time or do you take them off once they are fully charge


    Hi there, the Wii remote charger stand has a smart charging system which means that once the batteries reach full charge capacity the charger will stop charging them. You will cause no harm by leaving the Wii remotes on the charger all the time.

    Hope this helps

    My wii remopte won't charge. The battery dies and when I try to charge it, it only charges for about 30 seconds then says that it's charged and it's obviously not. (please help, thanks)


    Your battery or charger is probably toast - this is the exact same thing my remotes did, so I went to Amazon and bought new batteries and charger - now they work fine. The batteries are designed for so many charges then they die.If, like me, you park your remotes on the charger stand when not in use that counts as charging whether or not the batteries need it so it would be better to lay your remotes next to your Wii or charger base if they don't need charging. Also - charging the batteries when they don't need it can shorten the battery's life, depending on the specific type of battery you bought. Before buying a replacement battery, find out the specific type of battery and whether or not it requires charging before getting low or needs to run out before charging. You can get this info from the seller of the battery. Hope this helps!!

    After charging the wii remotes in the base until


    I don't think you are doing anything wrong, just the setup you are useing is'nt as effective as you would like.

    I use the energizer rechargeable (NiMH) batteries with the energizer 15 minute charger. The other batteries and chargers just don't seem to work as well. I get several hours of play time on a single charge, where I was only getting about 1/2 hour to an hour with the others. **No I am not a paid endorser, I just use and like the product!**

    Hope this helps, please let me know how you end up or if I can help more.

    I lost the instructions to my wii battery charger. Would like some instructions knowing when battery is fully charged, can you leave the controller in the charger when only using one at a time ?? please...


    There's probably some light on the charger that would either change color or go off when the battery's charged. And it's usually okay to leave the Wiimotes on the charger when not using them, but I wouldn't leave it on there for super long amounts of time if you're not going to be using it foe a while.

    Wii remote not working.


    Get some regular alkaline AA batteries and try your Wii Remote using them -- the blue lights on the Wii remote should light up and register with the Wii console (this is via wireless / bluetooth) -- As for the sensor bar, it is really only an infra red emitter - so if you have it properly connected to your Wii, the Wii Remote (with working batteries) can sense where it is by "seeing" the lights emitted from your sensor bar.

    If the alkaline batteries work - You may need to get some new NiMH AA batteries to use in your charger - changers are usually third party devices; Nintendo does not ship charging stations with the Wii.

    If the Wii remote appears to be working (blue lights and all) and your sensor bar is properly connected, you may have a dirty or damaged IR port. First clean the top of the Wii remote, just to make sure. If it still does not work, borrow a friends Wii Remote and check to see if it works with your system. If you do everything above and your Wii remote does not work while a seperate one does, the problem is most likely a broken Wii remote.
