Can't get wii remotes to sync

This discussion thread has 15 messages.

I have preloader booting my wii straight to usbloader gx.

My kids have somehow un sync'd all four of my wii remotes and I can't get them to sync under any conditions. I don't know if I need to boot to the system menu but since they won't sync I can't boot to the system menu anyway.

Any suggestions?

Do you have a Game Cube controller?

I think Preloader will let you navigate with it.

If you don't then you should be able to use Bootmii to boot the Homebrew Channel then use Any Region Changer to downgrade to 3.2 firmware or install the 4.1 firmware menu manually which should overwrite the Preloader install.

You can use this Offline Downgrade/Upgrade guide HERE to download the files you need for 4.1 firmware menu. Do step 1, 2, 3, 11 and 12.

Thanks brother! Good thing I had a GC controller still hangin around. That worked just fine. No need to downgrade.

Maybe I spoke too soon. After having them all sync'd up now I'm having major wii remote issues. They are randomly un syncing and its a bitch to get them sync'd again. Has anyone else had these same type of issues.

Yeah I'm getting the same issue here, I have tried to d-sync the Wii by holding the sync button on the console for 15 seconds to erase all sync data, I'll sync one control fine, but as soon as I try to sync another one, they all d-sync. I can only use one wii mote at a time. I have three wii motes. Never had a problem before, they just started to d-sync while play some games. I have update to 4.1U Anyhelp would be great.

Have you guys tried using a different USB Loader like SDUSB-Loader_cfg40 and see if that will keep your Wiimotes Synched better?

You can download it HERE.

There have been allot of issues with USB Loader (they fix something then some other issue comes up) so I ended up changing over to the above USB Loader.

Do you have bootmii?

I am not using any preloader, nor do I have bootmii.
Started to de-sync when I started to use Intec rechargeable batteries.
I called nintendo and they said that the dock charging station could have caused the Wii to malfunction.

Can you not read then?

Read my first post in this thread about using Bootmii to get rid of Preloader since you do not have a GC controller.

Step 1: go to Google.

Step 2: type Bootmii.

Step 3: Click on Bootmii home link.

Step 4: Go to FAQ and read to find out how to navigate the menu.

thanks!!! it worked i was able to teporarily sync one of my remotes and then i permenantly synced them thanks for your help and cheers to boot mii

Larry if I install the Bootmii will that fix my remotes sync problems?
I can have one remotes work fine, but when I try to sync more than one
they stop working and I have to power down and resync the first one again. I've tried pretty much everything. Last resort is to send it to Nintendo to repair.
