Controller will not sync with Wii
Does anyone know what the problem might be?
Have you tried to resync it. I found this
1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. (The SD Card Slot is the small door located near the disc drive slot.)
3. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.
4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
Try unplugging your Wii console from the power cord for a few minutes. Then plug the power back up turn on the Wii. Now follow the normal steps to sync your remote. (Push the red button on the remote then the red button on the Wii). This worked for me the first time I tryed it. Don't ask why cause I have no idea.
Turn on wii. Press A to main wii menu (with another working remote). If no remote is yet synced wii should prompt you to do so at this point, either way continue to next step.
Press and hold red sync button (inside little door under power button) for 3 seconds.
Then press red sync button on the remote (under battery door). lights will flash and one will stay lit to show you which player that remote has become.
**You can sync your remotes to other game consoles, however each time you change consoles that you are playing you will need to re sync your remote. ( not all remotes just the ones played on another console)
Happy gaming. -B
Replace the Bluetooth module. See Youtube videos for instruction.
I had two units non working Wii, one won't sync no matter what procedure I followed. It was a hardware problem which got fixed by replacing the Bluetooth board I bought from Ebay.
I also had another Wii that had a blank display. This was also fixed by replacing the Bluetooth module.
If the other procedures don't work, try this hardware fix.
