    How long you played it so far? Maybe the batteries are low. They say 30 hrs or so, but the free batteries are never as good as the brand names you get in the shops... Or so how i usually find. I doubt its a major problem with the remote if it was working earlier...

    Well I just did this:
    Turned off system
    Turn back on after some seconds
    Hit the Sync Buttons on wiimotes and console
    1st player should light up once the manual page comes up
    2nd activated when i hit a button

    seems fine now, but its a pain in the butt when ya got wiimote grips, but they are sooo worth it.

    This may sound like a dumb answer but i think your Wiimote is not turned on. Just press the Power button.

    No. Yellow means stand-by im pretty sure. Oh and for the wii-motes try pressing 1+2 after syncing

    The remote system is not very intuitive. No matter what I do, whenever I go into reset the remotes in options, it always defaults to making the first remote I synced when I hooked up the system the "master" remote and new remote I've synced as "1" no longer functions in the menus. So if I want to transfer control of the system to the remote my son has it just doesn't work, we have to switch remotes. Very frustrating. There's either a bug in the options or there something we're missing.
