Yesterday, my Wii was working just fine. Today, the power wouldn't turn on when I pressed it on the controller, which was weird, so I turned it on manually, and it wouldn't recognize me pressing the A button with either remote. It eventually went to the title screen on its own, but neither remote seems to make the cursor appear. The batteries in one of them was on the low side last I checked according to the system (Though it still flashes three out of four lights on the bottom), but the other one should be at full strength as it's practically never been used.

Anyone have any clues?

Try turning off the system completely (red light) and/or unplug it. If that doesn't work you'll just have to resync them.

It's happened to me a couple of times but it's been a while since it happened the last time.

Resync.

Open the battery cover, push the resync button. Then push it on the Wii. I had to do this once too.

I'd tried resyncing them, but I hadn't unplugged it. That did the trick.

I hear you need to actually unplug it because it's some weird bluetooth problem.

I've had this happen twice since it came out. All I do is pull the plug from the back and plug it back it.. It works fine after that. I don't have to press resync or anything like that. The weird thing is when this happens it won't even turn on using the button on the console either.

Happened to me today during Zelda. Tried resyncing but that didn't work. Manually reset the wii and it was fixed.

I guess resyncing it works. It is something to keep in mind when it happens to me

I`m surprised there are technical problems, considering the demographic Nintendo is shooting for. I hope these problems don`t start piling up.

I know you are joking but the system gets extremely warm if you leave a disc in it in standby mode.

I was watching TV with the system on standby and zelda inside, and when I took out the disc about an hour later it was warm. The whole system was pretty warm too. Does the Wii drive keep spinning in standby mode? It must? System doesn't get warm without a disc inside.
