Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

System Lockup On my Wii console, the main menu freezes a few seconds after turning on the power. (There's not enough time to Wiimote over to the Disk Channel.) When this happens, even the power button will not shut off the console. I have to unplug it from power. Plugging it back in results in a Red light on the power button. Pressing the Power button in this state causes it to turn green, but the lockup repeats. I've tried getting into the system with a Wii game loaded, with no game loaded, with/without SD card and GameCube memory card. Any thoughts?

  • 3Open the front door on the front of the console to reveal the SD card input and the "Sync" button.
  • 4Press the "Sync" button on your Wiimote, located just underneath the batteries. When it is in Sync mode the LED light will flash.
  • 5Press the "Sync" button on your Wii console to connect the signals and allow the controller and console to sync. This may take a few seconds, so be patient while it continues to connect.

    My Wii remotes no longer communicates with the Wii. Yes the batteries are functional. We had a friend over yesterday who like to push buttons. It hasn't worked since.


  • 1 Open the back of your Wiimote and insert the two AA batteries as indicated in the battery panel. Leave the cover off after you've inserted the batteries.
  • 2 Turn on your Wii from the front of the console. Allow the Wii to cycle to the main menu.
  • 3 Open the front door on the front of the console to reveal the SD card input and the "Sync" button.

  • 6 Watch to see if the LED has stopped blinking. Once it has, your Wiimote is now connected to your Wii. Put the battery cover back on.
  • 7 Use One-Time Synchronization to change the way the Wiimotes are synced to the console. You can do this by pressing the "Home" button on your controller and choosing "Reconnect." This is useful when you wish to change the player/controller layout without passing different Wiimotes around and losing track of which is which. One-time mode is reset to Standard once the Wii is restarted.

    Bought new wii remote and wont power up


    The wii remote won't power up the Wii itself, or you can't get the wiimote to come on?

    If it won't turn on the Wii, it may have to be synced with the system. Not really sure, though. But to sync it, take of the back of the wiimote(the battery cover) and open the little flap on the Wii. There should be red buttons in each. With both on(turn the wii on manually with the power button on the system), press both red buttons at the same time. Alternatively, you can go to the menu and sync wiimotes from there.

    If the wiimote won't come on, make sure the batteries are new/charged.

    Can't sync wii remotes to console


    When you sync the wii motes you have to do it in proper order!!!

    There are 2 ways to sync one is minor out of sync stuff. You push red button on the wii briefly then quickly press the red button on the wiimote.

    Second one is what you need to do. First remove any disk then hold in the power button until the light turns red. (not yellow or orange). Release it then unplug the Wii. Do not remove the batteries but if they are low replace them before you turn it back on. Wait at least 2 minutes.
    Have the backs off the Wiimotes.
    Plug the Wii in.
    Turn the power on.
    As the Health and Safety screen appears push in the red button on the Wii.
    Hold it there a min. of 15 seconds. 25-30 is better.
    When you release it right away push the red button on the first Wii mote. It flashes all the lights.
    Immediately press then release the red button on the Wiimote while lights are flashing. When they stop flashing it will be synched.
    a.Then press the button on the Wii again (this time only hold for 2-3 seconds) then press the red button on the second wiimote and while lights flash press the button on the Wii again.
    Repeat a. for any other wiimotes.
