Wii charger not charging

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.

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!

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!!

    What to i need to do when the wii charger is green


    If your controller is still sat in the charger then that is fine when the green light is on. The chargers have what is called smart charge technology. This means that when the controllers reach full battery capacity the charger stops sending charge to the controller until it drops below a certain charge level again. Leaving the remotes in the charger when the green light is on will not damage them in any way at all.

    Hope this helps

    I have a wii remote charger and have just purchased some rechargeable batteries but they don't appear to be charging, everything is set up correctly but remote only showing 1 light lit and then going dead


    Make sure your charger is plugged in your Wii AND turned on. If you do this, the remotes should charge.
    If the remotes still don't charge, there's a problem.

    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.
