interesting... do the lights stay lit on the remote? sounds like a short...
i would call into Nintendo Tech Support for this one
I just recently got a wii, but for some reason the wiimote seems to cease to function when the nunchuck is plugged in. The wiimote alone works fine, but if I plug in the nunchuck, the wii does not respond to the buttons of the wiimote or the nunchuck.
Any help would be appreciated.
go to the place you bought it at and ask them for help or try and return it
