    crackles

    Yeah i have definitely heard my wiimote speaker crackle once or twice. It usually has happened when I am impatiently hitting A to skip a "don't hit your friends with the wiimote" warning screen while its loading a game so that might have something to do with it.

    Mine used to crackle A LOT, so I went into the remote options and turned it down 2 bars, now it doesn't make any weird crackles or pops.

    Man, practically all the sounds in the Zelda game, coming from the wii-mote is crackily. Im trying to ignore it, and to be honest, it doesnt ruin anything. But now that I know its there...its really annoying me. What to do...! I've just emailed Nintendo...lets see..

    Glad I found this thread because I was going to start one with the same topic.

    I have the same problem with my Wiimotes. Almost seems as though the speakers are blown and now continue to "crackle" when sounds come from them.

    Yes, I get that too. I kept feeling like my obsession of playing the Wii was causing it to... DIEZ! ;_;

    I've had that problem playing Zelda!! The remote just started crackling
    and cutting out!! I took it back to the store and the new replacement remote did the same thing. Next I tried a brand new nunchuk connected to the Wii remote to see if that was the problem and still crackling!! Finally I tried a third brand new controller and now everything's normal - I hope it stays that way!!!

    I looked at Nintendo's customer service pages on their website - they say
    that crackling can occur if batteries are swapped 'too quickly'. They suggest taking batteries out waiting for 1 minute then re-inserting them. They then say if problem persists the remote may need repairing! Unfortunately, I did not know about the battery swapping thing until after I'd taken the remote back to the store.

    Well my original remote was used for no more than 15 hours, the batteries had never been out since they were first put in, and it started crackling!

    I hope I'm wrong but could there be a fault amongst the Wii remotes?
    I've had probably 15 Nintendo consoles of various shapes and sizes over the last 15 or so years and never had a problem with the hardware.

    Has anyone else had a problem with crackling speakers on their Wii remotes?

    If true, the use of cheap speakers is no excuse. If there is a problem with the Wii remote speaker then Nintendo have a whole heap of trouble as I for one won't rest until the problem is solved. The speaker cutting out is totally detracting from my game playing experience as without sound the sword, boomerang, bow and sling shot seem somehow lifeless. This is because the majority of the sounds generated by these weapons and items comes from the remote speaker. Using the slingshot without sound sucks!!!

    However, I have faith in Nintendo to sort the problem out with subsequent batches of remotes. But we as the consumers must tell Nintendo of the problem, so everyone with crackling remotes should definitely email Nintendo and ask them what they intend to do about it.

    OK, strangely, my wii-mote is working fine (well, I think its fine!) - I'm not sure whether it was just taking time (even though that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever).

    I would recommend this; turn the volume off totally, leave it for a couple of days and gradually (one or two bars) increase it...it did the job for me.

    Keep everyone posted? Cheers.
