My family got our Wii Christmas of the year it was released. We have had the same one ever since and have a total of four remotes and four nunchucks for it. Currently, one remote's battery is completely dead (lights won't turn on at all), two with batteries that are too low to use (lights flash very weakly and won't connect), and the last one has near full battery-life. I recently tried to synch the working remote to my laptop (a trick that a friend of mine should me with his smartphone, but it didn't completely synch for me). I was watching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Part 3 on Netflix two nights ago using the same remote and everything was just peachy dandy. Today, after using the Wii for a bit, the console froze, causing me to have to unplug/re-plug it. It was working fine after that, until the remote suddenly un-synched itself. After trying to figure out what to do, I was able to re-synch it. I turned off the Wii and left it alone for a couple of hours. I went back to it in hopes of watching some more Fullmetal Alchemist. My dreams were dashed when I went to Netflix and the remote un-synched AGAIN and I was sitting there looking at a black screen. I unplugged/replugged Wii and turned it back on, but the remote was no longer synched. I switched the batteries into other remotes to no avail. I don't want to have to resynch the remotes every 25 minutes of usage. One-time synching does not work, and the permanent synching is obviously not being permanent. What do I do?? I can't send it in for repairs due to no warranty left combined with can't afford to pay and if I have to my parents are going to question me and somehow my dad will pin the blame on me, like he did with the car. HELP!!!!
As you are having problems with your Wii Remote(s) when using Netflix, you may wish to review the pages below I linked for you, as I'm sure one of the steps may be able to resolve your issue. I have also included the instructions below each link for you as well, just in case you didn't want to go page after page looking for a solution.;)
General Wii Remote Tips:
Quick tip: Cursor (hand) or character movement not responding properly?
Hold the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, firmly tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard. Check for proper response. If the problem is not solved, please follow the rest of the instructions on this page.
For all Wii Remote issues:
If you are experiencing problems with a new Wii Remote, or are having difficulty with a Wii Remote that was previously working properly, please carefully read and follow the instructions on this page.
First, follow these guidelines to ensure you have set up the system properly to have the optimal environment in which to use the Wii Remote:
Still having problems? If the basic guidelines above did not solve your problem, the more specific information below may help.
Buttons Not Responding:
If you are experiencing problems with multiple games, you may want to check the game's instruction manual to make sure the game uses the button(s) that is not responding. Some games do not use all of the Wii Remote's buttons or features. If you have verified the games should use the button(s) that is not responding, then the Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
Problems with one game:
If the above information did not solve the problem, then the Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
For any further assistance after this, I recommend contacting Nintendo's Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700, from 6am - 7pm, Pacific Time, 7 days a week, as there could then be a issue with your console itself and not the Wii remotes.;)
