This can be a painful problem, especially if it occurs during the middle of game, or before you can even start playing the game. It is important in most cases, Wii Remote (Wiimote) buttons not responding is one of two things – either a Wii Remote that needs repair, or a specific game setting. Once a button stops responding you will usually need to send it in for repair.

Here are the instructions:
Problems with one game:
Check the game's instruction manual to make sure the game uses the button(s) that is not responding. Some games do not use all of the Wii Remotes buttons or features.

Click here to see if the game is listed in Nintendo’s individual Game Disc troubleshooting. If it is, please follow the specific Nintendo instructions in order to get the buttons working on your Wii Remote.
