    The
    best is to turn it off useing the remote control, in that way you are
    making sure that your wii console is turned off in the proper way and
    you and your boy can play it for long years.

Either works fine. i suggest customers use the remote control switch, the switch on the console is on a very flimsy pc board and it can crack over time or if pressed too roughly. if the switch in the remote breaks for some reason it's cheaper to replace a wii-mote than a console.

My PDP Rock Candy Wii Remote Isn't Working


Have you tried a temporary sync?

If you don't know how to do this then all you gotta do is:

* With a Wii remote that is already synced Press the Home Button.
* Pick Wii remote settings, located at the bottom.
* Select Reconnect.
* Press 1 & 2 on the Rock Candy remote and see if that works.

Sadly this only lasts till the Wii is turned off.

I don't know if it works for the Rock Candy remote, but I hope it does until a more permanent solution turns up for you.

Why is lights blinking on wii controller


that means that the wii remote it out of reach (the light that human eyes cannot see is not seen) or you don't have the sensor plugged in,
or the black thing on top is dirty, and you need to clean it for it to work.
(this won't help if your wii is not responding to the wii remote.)

The control lights of my wii just keep flashing but the controls don't do nothing to the wii, I try new bateries and still don't work


First, remove the battery cover for the Wii Remote
Then open the small panel on the front of your Wii console
While holding down the sync button on the controller, press the sync button located under the small panel on the console, wait a moment, your contoller should then be synced.

I bought rock band 3 for wii. I plugged in the dongle for the keyboard and followed the sync instructions exactly. the lights flash on both devices, but when I let go of the sync buttons, the lights on...


This can be frustrated the first few times. Here's the likely issue: the wii version will not activate the keyboard (or drums) if multiple wii remotes are active and all-instruments mode is not enabled.

The multiple wii remote thing: one remote is considered the microphone, and the rest guitar controllers (you can use the wii-remote based wingman and guitar hero guitars with this title). Once you get to two plus wii remotes on, you can't add more.

So, assuming one of your guitar controllers is active, use it to go into the menu system and turn all instruments mode on. Once done, a wii remote is no longer needed to be used for singing, and now singing will be turned on by default (but you can ignore it). Now, your drums and keyboard should work fine.

Eventually, the game smartens up and turns on this mode automatically for you, but the first few times it does not. I nearly threw the game out the window the first day or so.

My wii remote wont turn on, i even tried a couple different new batteries but still no lights or anything


Have you tried syncing the Wii remotes? To sync, turn the Wii on, open the back of the remote and then press a red button that says "SYNC". Then open the SD card slot in the front of the Wii and press another red "SYNC" button. If you do this, your Wii remotes should be able to turn on.

If your Wii remotes still don't turn on, visit support.nintendo.com

Or call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance on your Wii.

The remotes flash then switch off, i have synced them again but still wont work.


start with the basics FRESH BATTERIES:

1) Fresh batteries should be in each.

2) Turn on the Wii with Player 1's remote or the button on the console.

3) Open your SD Card cover and press Sync. Very shortly afterward, press the red button on your P1 Remote (in the battery cover). Lights will blink and then will be showing a light in the first square, denoting the connection is complete and it's P1.

4) Do the same as Step 3 for the P2 remote. For the P2 remote, after the blinking, then the second square will be lit, meaning it's P2.



That is the Standard Connection. It is tied to the Wii until it's re-done.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After you attempt to synch them (pressing the red synch button on the wii, followed by the red synch button underneith the battery cover of the wiimote), make sure the wii is turned on and press the buttons 1 and 2 on the wiimote at the same time to have it search for recognized bluetooth devices (ie. your wii).

found this article too.

this should help you.. leave a testimonial if I helped.
The first thing I did while the Wii was turned on was that I tried to sync the Wii Remote by pressing the "1" + "2" buttons at the same time. The lights at the bottom of the controller flashed for about 30 seconds, but never received the signal from the Wii. Bummer.

The next step I followed was to hit the sync button on the Wii Remote (Wiimote). Then immediately opened the cover for the opening where the SD Flash card goes and pressed the sync button on the Wii. 30 seconds of flashing, and no result. Double bummer.

Finally, after some Google searching, I found a couple of message boards where people had to press the Sync button on the Wii (not the Wii Remote) for 15 seconds to reset it. I performed this step and then pressed sync on the Wii Remote. The 2nd controller synced up almost immediately. What a relief!

Apparently the problem lies in the fact that the Bluetooth technology being used has to be manually synced in order for it to connect to the Wii. It does not make much sense at all. You would think they could be pre-authorized in order to minimize time and ease of use. In addition, you really have to be careful that your other controllers are turned on while syncing or else the controller that you are trying to put on channel 3 might end up on channel 2! This happened to me on one occasion.

Good luck with getting your Wiimotes in sync with your Wii. Hopefully this helped!

I have a logitech remote for my tv, just bought a wii game. Do i need to program it into my remote as i cannot get the wii to work?


Because the Wii does not have IR receivers, it is not directly compatible with the Harmony remotes. However, you can still create a "Play Wii" activity that will turn on your other devices that are needed for the activity and set them to the correct inputs. So, for example, you would still need to turn the Wii on manually, but you the "Play Wii" activity would turn the TV on, set the correct input for the Wii and activate your sound system (if separate from the TV). Hope this helps!

Remotes are not working. Need help. Remotes are charged. Tried to sync several times. Unplugged console. Giving up...


You know, this really takes alot of patience. I recommend that you sync one at a time. Sync one remote, turn off the Wii (Not by unplugging it). Then turn it back on, don't turn on the one that you just used, and sync the next one, and so on. Did that help?

Problems with a Wii game


if you are in the mulitplayer mode and still have trouble adding the remote then try syncing the remote with the wii first by pressing the home button then go into the wii remote settings on the bottom then re-sync each control. Then try going back into mulitplayer mode and try again or while the screen is on when you want to add more players press the '+' button.
