CAUTION – TV Screen Damage
Some televisions can be damaged by the display of a stationary image, because the image
may be permanently “burned” into the screen. Playing video games with stationary images
or patterns, or leaving video games on hold or pause, may lead to this type of damage. When
taking a break, place the game on pause and turn the TV off until you are ready to play again.
Before using your Wii system with any TV, especially front and rear projection or
plasma models, be sure to review all documentation included with your TV to find
out whether video games can be played on the TV without damaging it.
If in doubt, contact the manufacturer of the TV. Neither Nintendo nor any of Nintendo’s
licensees will be liable for any damage to your TV.

CAUTION – Use the Wrist Strap
Wii gameplay with the Wii Remote Plus can involve rapid or vigorous motion.
Please use the wrist strap to prevent losing your grip on the remote and causing
damage to the remote or surrounding objects, or injury to other people.
WEAR THE WRIST STRAP WHEN USING THE Wii REMOTE PLUS.
• Make sure all players use the wrist strap and that the strap lock is correctly tightened.
• When sharing the Wii Remote Plus between multiple players, make sure each
person uses the wrist strap properly.
• Wearing the wrist strap will prevent you from accidentally dropping or throwing the
remote during gameplay, which could damage the remote or surrounding objects,
or cause injury to other people.
DO NOT LET GO OF THE REMOTE DURING GAME PLAY.
• Read the Instruction booklet for the game you are playing and follow all game
control instructions for correct use of the Wii Remote Plus or accessory controllers.
• Hold the remote securely and avoid excessive motion, as it may cause you to let go
of the remote and may break the wrist strap.
• If your hands become moist, stop and dry your hands.
ALLOW ADEQUATE ROOM AROUND YOU DURING GAME PLAY.

• As you may move around during gameplay, make sure objects and other people are
out of your range of movement or arm motion to prevent damage or injury.
Wearing the Wii Remote Wrist Strap
1. Open the lever on the strap lock and place your hand through the wrist strap.
Hold the remote firmly in your hand.
2. Slide the strap lock up so that the strap will not fall off your wrist. Do not over

Synchronizing Your Wii Remote Plus with
the Wii mini Console
NOTE: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote Plus.
This procedure allows the Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus to communicate with
the console.
The Wii Remote Plus included with your Wii system has been synchronized
with the console at the factory.
There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing) a Wii Remote or Wii Remote
Plus with your console:
STANDARD MODE – The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional
remotes to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original remote.
Once synchronized, the remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite
this setting by syncing the remote to a different console.
NOTE: With Standard Mode Synchronization, you can synchronize up to 10 Wii
Remote or Wii Remote Plus controllers with your Wii mini console. The data of
the remote that was sychronized first is deleted if you synchronize more than 10.
ONE TIME MODE – This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a console
other than your own or to use a friends remote on your console. It does not delete
the Standard Mode setting stored in the remote. In this mode, the remote will
only communicate with the console while the power is on. When the power is turned
off the remote will lose its sync with the console.
• Only a Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus in Standard Mode can turn the console
power ON or OFF.

the connection is complete. See diagram at right for a description of what the
blinking indicates.
During the syncing
process, the number of
LEDs that blink will show
the battery life of the
remote that is being
synchronized.
After the syncing
process, LED that is lit
shows the player
number for that remote.

Troubleshooting (Before seeking assistance, review the following problems and solutions.)
No picture on TV screen
• Make sure you have completed all steps, in the order that they appear, on the Quick
Setup sheet included with your system.
• Make sure that all components of your setup are plugged into power outlets and that
all components are turned ON.
• Make sure that cable connections are correctly installed and that all plugs are
securely plugged into the appropriate connectors.
• Make sure that the INPUT settings are correct for your particular setup. (Review page
15 on Input Select information.)
No sound is heard or sound quality is poor
• Make sure the TV volume is not turned off or muted.
• Make sure that all audio connections are correctly installed and that all plugs are
securely plugged into the appropriate connectors.
• Make sure the Wii AV Cable is plugged into the “input” connectors on the
TV or VCR, not the “output” connectors.
• Make sure that the INPUT settings are correct for your particular setup. (Review
page 15 on Input Select information.)
• The sound in some games doesn’t begin until the game begins.
• If you have a mono TV or VCR and have left one of the audio cables unconnected
you may not get all game sounds. Use a “Y” Adapter to get both left and right
sound channels.
• If your TV/VCR have both mono and stereo options, make sure they match your setup.
• Check the instruction booklet for the game you are playing to see if there are volume
controls or mono/stereo options that can be set from within the game.
Can’t get past the Language Select screen
• Synchronize your Wii Remote Plus controllers using the procedure on pages 19–22.
• Review the Sensor Bar setup instructions on pages 11–14 to ensure proper placement
and installation.
The console Power LED does not come on, or goes off
during game play
• Make sure the AC Adapter is plugged into both the wall outlet and the back of
the console.
• If the light is still off, disconnect the AC Adapter plug from the wall outlet, wait 2
minutes and plug it back into the outlet. Turn the console power ON.
System unable to read the Wii Game Disc or disc will
not operate in console
NOTE: Game Discs will not start automatically. You must start disc games from the Disc
Channel on the Channel Menu screen.
• Make sure the Game Disc is inserted correctly. The label side of the disc must
face upwards.
• Check to be sure that the Game Disc is clean and in good condition. If dirty, wipe
with a soft cloth, from the center to the outside. Do not wipe with a circular motion.
• Remove the Game Disc, and turn the power OFF and then ON. Reinsert the disc and
try playing the game again.
• Check that the Game Disc will work on your version of the Wii. This system will only
work with Game Discs made for use in the USA, Canada, Mexico and Latin America.

Wii Remote Plus lights blink, but don’t stay lit
(remote does not sync)
• Review the Sensor Bar setup instructions in this manual to ensure proper placement.
• Make sure batteries are not depleted.
• Try resetting the Wii Remote Plus – remove the batteries, wait one minute,
then replace the batteries. Wait a few seconds, and then try synchronizing
the remote again.
• If you are unable to re-sync the remote, try the following procedure:
1. Turn off the power of the Wii mini console.
2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds, then plug it back
in again.
3. Turn on the power of the Wii mini console.
4. Synchronize your Wii Remote Plus controllers using the procedure on
pages 19–22.
Wii Remote Plus or controller accessory buttons stick
Clean sticking buttons using the following procedure:
1. For the Wii Remote Plus, remove batteries and disconnect any accessories
before cleaning.
2. Use an unused toothbrush and hot tap water. Do not use boiling water,
soap or detergent.
3. Dip the toothbrush in hot water and shake off excess amount. Lightly scrub
sticking buttons, working the bristles around sides of buttons and into cracks.
4. Dry controller with soft cloth or towel and let air dry for at least 2 hours.
5. Test buttons and repeat procedure if necessary. Do not submerge in,
or pour any type of liquid onto a controller or accessory.
Wii Remote Plus doesn’t properly respond to player
motion (erratic hand cursor, can’t swing bat, can’t bowl, etc.)
• If the lights on your remote blink, but do not stay lit, see the first troubleshooting
step on this page, at left.
• Review the Sensor Bar setup instructions in this manual to ensure proper
placement.
• Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii
mini console, and the Wii Remote Plus.
• Make sure batteries are not depleted.
• Check and adjust the Sensor Bar sensitivity if necessary. (See the e-manual.)
The following conditions can interfere with the operation of the remote:
1. Using the remote too close or too far from the Sensor Bar. The optimal distance is
between 3 and 10 feet.
2. Bright light sources, including sunlight, behind or near the TV, shining towards
the remote or reflecting off the TV screen.
3. Highly reflective surfaces near the sensor bar.
4. Sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or
kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of
heat.
5. Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote Plus to work erratically.
Check for and move or turn off wireless devices such as cordless phones,
wireless computer keyboards or mice or other similar devices.
If you think any of these conditions are affecting the operation of the remote, try
removing or reducing the source of interference.
When playing a game that includes Wii MotionPlus
features, the Wii Remote Plus operates erratically
or unexpectedly.
• The Wii Remote Plus may need to be recalibrated due to the following:
1. Changing batteries in the Wii Remote Plus during gameplay.
2. Moving Wii MotionPlus from a cold environment into a warm environment.
To recalibrate the Wii Remote Plus, place it on a flat horizontal surface with the buttons
facing down. Wait for a few seconds and check the operation. Also, review the instruc-
tion manual for the game you are playing for more information.
NOTE: This procedure must be done during gameplay.
