ok hi guys.
so my problem is that i got a preowned wii from eb games yesterday and it came with the wii-mote. i put batterys in it and it worked for about 3 mins then stopped. i tried 3 other pairs of NEW batterys after that....same result was acheved.
so i took the remote back to eb and they replaced it with another remote(not new) and i tried that when i got home and it works for 5 mins then stops. i look at the battery in the remote settings and it always has one bar.

so what the hell is going on??!!??
is it the wii console or just another faulty remote? should i just get a new remote or what?

thanks heaps in advance
