Question about Nyko Charge Station for Nintendo Wii
My wii Rechargeable batter isn't charging. When I put the wiimote on overnight, and turn it on the next day, there's only one bar of power.
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.

If you have two remotes, switch the battery!

(comment to solution 2): What did you use to wipe it off? I treid a paper towel, but that didn't do anything. Should I use a WET paper towel?

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