How To Sync A Wii Remote
The Nintendo Wii is designed to allow you to control games by simply moving the controller, but before you can interact with your system, you need to learn how to sync a Wii remote to the Wii console. The Wii uses Bluetooth technology--similar to what you will find in your cell phone--to sync the Wii remote. Before it will sync, the Wii remote has to go through a pairing process with the Wii system and this will allow the two devices to communicate with each other. Since the Wii remote is designed to be easily paired, the most difficult part of the process is finding the correct buttons that will allow you to sync the Wii remote.
Things you'll need:
- Nintendo Wii console
- Wii remote (with batteries)
- Remove the battery cover from the Wii remote. Placed two charged AA batteries into the slots on the Wii remote. Do not replace the battery cover when you are done.
- Press the power button on the Wii system. The button will be located at the top or on the far left side, depending on how your Wii system is oriented.
- Press the small red button on the Wii remote. The button is located just below the batteries. You will see the lights on the remote start to flash.
- Flip open the SD card slot cover on the Wii system. This is located in the middle of the front panel on the Wii. You will see a card slot and a red button.
- Press the red sync button on the Wii console.
- Wait until the lights stop flashing on the remote and only one light is lit. Replace the battery cover. Your Wii remote and your Wii console are now in sync.
