Hi, I'm new to the forum and hope I can get some help. I have my wii stored away for a few months due to cleaning, now I have kids round and none of the wiimotes are working at all - I can charge them for about 5 seconds, and they won't charge any longer than that. When powering the wiimotes on the bar goes down very quickly, then I can't power it back on unless i stick it back on the charger for the 5 seconds it lasts to charge again. I have 4 wiimotes, and they all do the same thing. I don't know if this is some sort of protection within the hardware and there's probably some sort of easy fix, but I need to know quickly, so I'm hoping someone can help I am using battery packs with the docking chargers. Normal AA batteries work fine, so I'm guessing there's something wrong with the battery packs? It seems a bit strange that all 4 of them do the same thing though. Hope someone can help! Many Thanks, Terrum.
