Question about Nintendo Wii Console
My wii remote charger has stopped charging the batteries in the wii remote - help!!
Problem is either one battery is discharged and the other is full or corrosion on battery terminal tops or batteries are defective. the red lights flash when the unit sences that the batteries have a problem with the induction charge. simple test is to using a meter measure the batteries or discharge the unit with a wire and a 2.2 volt bulb (flashlight bulb) once discharged, unplug the charger unit for over 10 secs to reset it. then plug it in and try the batteries in the packs again. if still inop then they are done for.

If this is a Nyko charger buy a new one and take the broken one back. This is a common problem.

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.
