Sorry to bring this on, but I could not find the answer anywhere else, nor this forum, other forums, yahoo answers, Nintendo troubleshooting guidelines, etc. The problem is with the wii remote. I was playing with it as a secondary controller on wii sports and suddenly it stopped working. I thought it could be low on batteries so I exchanged them for the ones in my remote control. It worked just a few seconds and I saw the battery discharging in about 10 seconds before my eyes (from full to nothing and off). I thought that it was really strange, since my wii is 4 days old and I bought that controller 3 days ago. I switched the batteries on my first control to the second (broken one) and nothing happens, home button doesn’t show any sign, not a single led is lit. I put the batteries back on the first control (the 3 pairs just to check) and they all show full charge. So, I guess I can make a list of things I’m sure aren’t happening: It is not a battery problem (at least it isn't on my batteries) It is not a sync problem It is not a wii (main console) problem It is not a sensor problem A few minutes ago there were no problems at all, there wasn’t any kind of damage, accidental drop or anything I can blame the problem to. Any help will be highly appreciated since with an 80 buck budget on controllers every 5 days I will be broke before September is end.
