Question about Nintendo Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

My Nintendo Wii has a charger base and the remotes don't seem to be working, although I've tried batteries and they don't either. I have been on holidays for 6 weeks, so maybe it was the sitting for a long time without use? I should have gotten the person watching the house to play the game to keep it going!

I had to use the batteries with the back of the remote open and press the red button to "sync" the remote with the base. Within a second or two after I had to press the red button on the base. (Just inside the flip lid of the Wii Console) Then I did it with the other remote and both of them were up and running. It wasn't that the batteries weren't working, it was that the remotes weren't synced.

I have a Nintendo Wii and the remotes don't seem to be working. I have tried replacing the batteries but still it doesn't work. Do I need a new charger or new remotes?


Hi there

you have the sync error

This needs to be repaired.

you can send the console to Nintendo for free if in warranty, if out of warranty then this will cost you around $150, the whole process will take 4-6 weeks

I prefer the Wii repair guide Method, download the guide and follow the simple step by step instructions and fix the problem in less than an hour, no hassle, low cost everybody is happy.

Best Regards

We have a Nintendo Wii and no the remote controls aren't working with the console. Ihave tried replacing batteries. Do I need new remote controls or a new charger for the controls?


If your remotes are showing power lights at the bottom when you press buttons, then you may have a problem with the sensor bar that receives signals from the remotes.
First, try unplugging and plugging back in the sensor bar to the Wii. If it still doesn't work, the next step would be to replace the sensor bar. You can find them just about anywhere you buy Wii accessories and they are fairly cheap.

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.

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.
