Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common: Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp Try these steps!
Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.
Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.
After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.
Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.
Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console.
When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.
Generally additional drivers are needed for basic keyboard functionality, although Windows does actually install them as unique devices. Sometimes this process can take several minutes (depending on computer speed) and the keyboard will be unresponsive until it's actually installed. Try plugging in your keyboard, rebooting the PC, and giving it a few minutes once it's up and running.
If that doesn't work you can try booting into Safe Mode by hitting the F8 key during the startup process. This will load generic drivers and will allow you to troubleshoot additional drive and/or software issues.
hello i think a flashing green means there a connection faulty from your xbox to your tv if you have disc in the xbox take it out unplug the xbox and the power supply as well leave for a bout an hour then recoonnect the xbox and check your connection from your tv to your xbox good luck
the home computer has a small chip onits mother board called disk controller. its this controller which recognises it.so the software driver is corrupt and needs reinstallation or the hard ware controller is faulty.
well try to call xbox technical support amd they will help you out. the number is 1-800-4myxbox. tell them your problem and they will most likely give you a box in the mail for you to send it in and after a few weeks later you should get a new one in the mail
I had the same problem started yesterday. I stumbled accross this thread. This situation is not an issue with the controllers it is with the console. The solution that worked for me is turning the xbox on. Leaning it forward unplugging the power cable from the back while the console was running and then plugging back in and booting up. Everything working fine now. My bosses console had this similar issue too; we fixed it a similar way by doing the power loss reset, and then a couple days later it red ringed on him.
