mmm... have you tried checking the batteries?
Is that the remote or the classic game controller for the Wii??

Duh!!!! How stupid of me.. I was very frustrated that my remotes wouldn't work and I couldn't weigh in. I thought it was the end of the world. After I put the sensor bar back where it belonged, my remotes worked and I could weigh in. Now I wish I hadn't! LOL!

you need to click the red button that's next to the SD card slot (it's under that flap on the Wiis front). then click the red button under the battery door on your Wiimote.

this should pair the controller back to your wii.

hope this works! let me know if it doesn't!

make sure there are no other wireless items around, like for instance i had the wii on top of the internet box. only when i moved the wii, i could do the red button reset.

I tried what Connor suggested and it worked. All four of my wiimotes stopped working at the same time last night and wouldn't reconnect with both the red buttons pressed. Sure enough hit 1 and 2 together and on the third or fourth press it connected.

anyone else having this problem - don't spend the $40 on a new controller until you try this first.
I had this problem and after checking batteries I re-sync'ed the controller with the console and it worked fine.
to resync - press the red button under the front cover where the SD card goes and press the red button next to the batteries and that should work.

It might be because your battery has run out? Press the home button and then press the wii remote button on the wii menu to check how much more life the wii remote has

oops, i found the red button on the flap where you put an sd card on the actual wii game console. but even after i pressed both red buttons together, it still does not work. when i put the remotes on the charger, it does not light up. maybe the batteries are dead?

Here is what you should do. First turn your Wii off for 30 seconds. Then plug it up. Once it is on the health warning page press the button in the flap and hold down the button inside the wii remote. The light should come on and work fine. If it does not work you can try these four things.
1.Call the number on the Nintendo website.
2. Buy another Wii remote(only 40$ dollars).
3. Go to a Game Stop or shop near you to get them checked out.
4. Search on the internet till you find a new one.
Hopefully it works.
