Nintendo Wii Remote Troubleshooting

The Nintendo Wii is the most popular game console by far. How can it be? Well, it’s cheaper for one. It’s also the only console that has the Mario and Zelda series.

But most of all, it’s the movement. That’s what the Nintendo Wii brought to the table and it paid off. When you want your character to swing a sword, it’s much more satisfying to swing your own Wii remote than to press a button. It’s the same for bowling, batting or any or the many activities that the Wii remote imitates.

But what happens when your Wii remote doesn’t function properly? Let’s say that your swings take too long to register. Your character will react and move later than you did, so it will miss the target. And in a hectic game, you can’t just move a second or two in anticipation, so that your character will move in time, not to mention that it would make all the natural feeling about it disappear.

However, you don’t need to spend your money in another Wii remote and throw the old one to the garbage. All you need is some basic Wii remote troubleshooting assistance. It will help you solve movement registering problems, as well as stuck buttons, jumping cursors, sticky buttons, etc. A Wii remote troubleshooting guide will also teach you how to give proper maintenance to your Wii remotes so that problems won’t arise.

Troubleshooting Nintendo Wii

When your Nintendo Wii console breaks down, it can be very frustrating. Unless you are willing to wait six weeks and that your warranty is still valid, you’ll have to fix it yourself.

The first thing you need to know about troubleshooting Nintendo Wii consoles by yourself is to identify the problem. It might sound obvious but a lot of people just start messing around with their consoles, turning it around in different positions, loading and unloading discs, pressing the buttons randomly in the hopes of being lucky and fixing their Wii console by chance.

Troubleshooting Nintendo Wii consoles is about detecting what the problem is. Let’s say the screen freezes in the middle of a game. The first thing you need to find out is whether the problem resides with the Wii console or with the game disc. If the problem is with the disc, then you don’t want to continue using it with your console or other console, to keep it from damaging your system. It’s normally a matter of getting it exchanged.

However, if the problem is with your console, you don’t want to load game discs on it until you get it fixed, otherwise it might scratch or damage a whole bunch of perfectly good games.

Likewise, when your Wii remote isn’t responding, finding the trouble or identifying the source of the problem helps solve the problem much more efficiently. Are your movements not registering? Does the remote fail to sync or keep synced? Are the buttons stuck, even though you haven’t spilled any liquids on them?

So, as you see troubleshooting Nintendo Wii consoles doesn’t require knowing how motherboards work or how digital information translates into character fighting. Rather, troubleshooting Nintendo Wii consoles is about identifying a problem and then applying a simple, tried solution.

Learn How To Repair Wii

Learning how to repair Nintendo Wii is quite straight forward and anybody can do it.

The process of video game console creation does require some knowledge about electronics. However, once the know-how has been established, anyone can repeat the process, provided he or she is told how to.

In most industrial products, the building process is made by workers on a production line. Each of these workers repeats a single process over and over. They might be the ones that set the motherboard on the Wii console, but that doesn’t mean they have to know how a mother board works.

Learning how to repair Nintendo Wii consoles isn’t much different. All you need is to know HOW. And if you think about it, most of the processes with objects that you know, you know them because someone taught you how to do them. If you have a car, chances are someone taught you how to drive and how to change a flat tire. You didn’t need to understand the complex process of how gas turns into motion to learn that, did you?

The same can be said about the Nintendo Wii, only that how to fix Nintendo Wii consoles is not as common knowledge as changing a tire.

One more example, have you ever been asked to do something that a person can’t do but you believe it’s really easy? For example, when your aunt asks you to send a mail for her, or your uncle asks you to connect all the cables of his new DVD player, or your little child cousin asks you to put the batteries in his new toy. They ask you to do it not because the task is difficult or tough or hard. They ask you because they don’t know how.
