    Same for me. After placing my Wii remote on the charge station stand, the blue LED light (which indicates the Wii remote is charging) stays lit for approximately five seconds before turning off and returning to green even though my remotes are nowhere near fully charged.

    i have the exact same problem....the says it it fully charged in about 3 seconds even though the batteries were fully drained! It does not connect via USB so that can't be the problem and it is clearly touching the rods because the light is turning on. I really don't want to get a new one

    My daughter has the same problem. After a few sec. it says that it's fully charged but it's not. I got it for her less than a year ago. Nintendo sucks! I should of just forked up the extra cash and got her a ps3.

    what did you do to wipe the green substance off?

  • aheathco Jan 08, 2009

    I put the remotes on the charge station and it almost immetely turns green signalling a ful charge. If I take them off and check the batter power it is in the red. The remotes often won't turn on at all and I have to open them up and take the battery in and out to get them to respond.

    The Light turns green after like 5 seconds, but the wii menu says it only has 1 bar of power

  • aheathco May 11, 2010

    I also notice the greenish build up on the contacts of the battery. Not sure how you were able to remove it though...

I had this same problem and searched on the web for answers.... I could not find an answer; just complaints. I tried something that solved the problem! I noticed a greenish buildup on one of the three metal contacts on the battery. I wiped the green stuff off then the battery charged as normal.

The problem I was having (to ensure we have the same problem) was that the wii indicated the battery was out of power. I would put the remote in the charger and the indicator light would turn blue to show it was charging. A few seconds later the light would turn green to indicate it was done charging and was full. However, the battery was still empty. This would occur even if I left the remote in the charge overnight.

With the fix I listed above, the batteries now work as normal!

I have the solution to this!!! It was driving me crazy. When the battery goes totally dead, it won't recharge. What you have to do is get a 9 volt battery and two wires. Hold the wires on the battery terminals and tape the other ends to the +- terminals on the battery for about a minute. When you are done...put the batter into the remote and it should be charged enough to be chargeable again., Put it on the charger until fully charged.

To get build up on any electronic device - especially batter contacts, gently take a pencil eraser to the contact. this will remove any oxidization on the contact and allow for a full contact. using liquid on electronics is always dangerous - and may or may not be effective.

The same happens to me its from not playing enough so the batterie desn't drain. How a batterie works is that it charges 2 sides and one drains over time and the other only drains if u play...so...when u put it on and after 5 min it turns from blue to green, just take it off the charger and put it back on, do this untill its charged. then msake sure u drain the batterie and not just plsy it once then walk away and use it again a month later or u will have to do this all over again hope I helped :D

There are a few possibilities

1. if ur charger is connected to the usb port on the back of your wii, you need the power to be on, or put your wii on standby, (green or yellow power button light) to give power.

2. if thats not the problem, then the wiimote may not be connecting to the chargers metal bars, (where the back of the wiimotes metal parts have to touch the chargers metal parts. To help, take off the wii wrist strap so it can sit easily on the charger.

3.It may just be dodgy, return it to nintendo or the game store where you got it from and get a new one.

Wii remote not working


Have you ever used batteries in your wii remote because as soon as you put normal batteries in the wii remote instead of charging the rechargeable batteries that come with the remote then you have to use batteries. I have done this now i need to use AA batteries in my remote. If you haven't and you just have the battery pack then make sure to see if it charges on them charging things and if it don't charge then you need to take it to a repair shop. Hope this helped :)

Cursor on wii control hand held won't show up on tv screen


Make sure your batteries are new or fully charged if you have rechargeable batteries in. I would re-synchronize the wiimote, by opening the face flap down on the front of the Wii, pressing the red button to start synchronization while the wii is on, and then the red sync button on the back of the Wiimote where the batteries are. If this does not work, it probably means that the cable that connects the sensor bar to the Wii has been cut by either a cat or a child, which happens often to these thin guaged wires. All you have to do if that is true, is make it a clean cut on both ends, then melt away about 1/4 inch of the insulation with a flame and pull it off with your fingernails, keeping the exposed wire. Do this on both ends and re-connect them and use black electrical tape to insulate each wire first, then the both together to enforce strength. If this doesn't work just switch the two wires you just connected and it should. Re-synchronize after doing so.

MY REMOTE IS NOT WORKING WITH MY WII


If you press a button on your Wiimote, and no lights come on at the bottom then your batteries have died. I recommend rechargeable batteries. When your wii is on, open the SD slot cover on the front and press the red button to synchronize, then press the red button behind the battery cover.

My second wii controller has a rechargable battery pack in it but it wont work it flashes blue but wont set to second player , ive removed the pack and placed new batteries inside but still no sucess...


It's not a battery problem, it needs to connect to your Wii. It's really picky about this for some reason.
First step, turn your wiimote around and take off the lid, where you'd see the batteries. In it you'll find a really small red button.
Second step, go to your wii and find a small panal in the front, next to where you put your CD in. There should be a red button there too.
While your Wii is on, point your wiimote to it and press those two buttons at the same time. Hold it down and just wait several moments. If it doesn't work, than press the buttons a few times to see if that'll get it to work. Again if it's stubborn, reboot your wii and try again.

My wii remote charger keeps blinking red while charging the remotes


@VentureForth

You're an idiot. The flashing red light is ON HIS CHARGER FOR HIS WIIMOTES. So why the hell would it be a sync issue with the wiimotes and the wii console? READ the WHOLE question before making yourself look stupid.

I have a nyko wireless wii sensor bar. the first one I had would not turn on, and so I got a new one but the same problem is happening. the blue light will not turn on.


First thing to check is your battery... This sensor bar is nice that it doesn't require a wire for power, but the battery tends to drain pretty quickly. After about 8-hours or so of playtime you'll probably have to change batteries.

You also need to calibrate the sensitivity if your Wiimote afterwards to make sure it works properly.

Lastly, this bar is also known to have issues with some third party controllers. If you're not using the official Wiimote you might also have issue with this bar.

Wii controller keeps blinking on and off when i turn it on


It sounds like you are using a rechargeable battery. When it is in the docking station, make sure that the strap and the gel cover doesn't get in the way of the wiimote making contact in the docking station.

Nunchuck wii problem


Most likely not a fault with either. Try not touching the nunchuk while the game is powering up, as moving the joystick while the game is powering up can cause these issues. If the problem is still happening, click the Wii Home button and open the Wii Remote Settings at the bottom of the screen. Choose the option to reconnect the remote, and then try again. If this doesn't work, ai am not really sure what is the issue. You may need to send to NOA for a checkup.
