Fixed! Wii Fit Balance Board Won't Sync

This post is one of several on how to fix problems with your Nintendo Wii. To see the entire list, click here for the Nintendo Wii Repair Guide.

One of the most popular posts on my blog dates back to my early posts and experience with my Nintentdo Wii Remotes and the troubles I initially had getting them to sync. In fact, if you even search in Google for "Wii Remote Won't Sync", my page comes back as the first search result.

Naturally, as you might imagine -- with the release of Wii Fit and the assocatiated Wii Fit Balance Board in the United States this week -- I have received number of questions on issues sync problems between the new Wii Fit Balance Board and the Nintendo Wii console. Based on the number of questions, it made perfect sense for me to follow up with a post on how you can sync and troubleshoot sync problems with your Nintendo Wii Fit Balance Board.

Luckily, the instuctions that Nintendo provides with the Wii Fit Balance Board are much better than the instructions with the Wiimotes, so we'll first cover those instructions of of the box, then talk about a couple of areas where problems can arise.


Synchronizing the Wii Balance Board with your Wii Console
IMPORTANT: To operate correctly, the Wii Balance Board must be synchronized with the Wii console using Standard Mode Synchronization. Follow the steps below to synchronize the board to the console.

  • This procedure must be followed for each Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
  • These synchronization settings will be saved even if the console is turned off.
  • This procedure can be completed only if a compatible Game Disc is running in the console.
  1. Press the EJECT Button on the front of the Wii console and remove any
    game disc if necessary. Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc.
  2. Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel on the Wii Menu screen and select START.
  3. Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.
    NOTE: Close the SD Card slot cover when you are finished with the synchronization procedure.
  4. Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.
    NOTE: Replace the Battery Cover when you are finished with the aynchronization procedure.
  5. Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking (for up to about 20 seconds). Wii Fit Balance Board Will Not Sync - Sync Wii Fit Balance Board
  6. Press the SYNCHRO Button (SYNC.) on the console while the Power LED on the board is blinking.
    Wii Fit Balance Board Will Not Sync - Sync Wii ConsoleIMPORTANT: Do not press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the Wii console down for more than 10 seconds. This will delete all of the Standard Mode synchronization information for all Wii Remotes that you use with that console.
  7. The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is
    complete. You are now ready to play the Wii Balance Board compatible Game Disc. Please refer to the instruction booklet for the Game Disc you are using for further information on gameplay.

NOTE:

  • Only one Wii Balance Board can be synchronized to a Wii console at a time. Up to a total of 10 Wii Remotes and accessories can be synchronized to a console at any time with the Standard Mode procedure. If additional synchronizations are made, the oldest existing ones will be overwritten.
  • The Wii Balance Board can only be synchronized to one console at a time using the Standard Mode procedure. If you change the console you are using the board with, you will have to repeat the synchronization procedure each time.
  • The Wii Balance Board uses the Player 4 (P4) connection. If a Wii Remote is actively using P4, that remote will be disconnected while the board is being used.
With those instuctions and in most cases, your Wii Fit Balance Board will now be ready for use. If it is not, thus far there have been two common symptoms that have thus far been identified.

Note: If you are experiencing additional symptoms or problems, please post a comment below so I can help you figure out the problem and update this post for others!

These problems are in order of the most to least common:

1. The Wii Fit game must actually be loaded and running. In step 2 above, it mentions to press "Start" for the game that uses the Wii Balance Board before starting the next steps. It should be more clear that you do not only need to start the game, but you must also wait for the game to be running for the sync to occur. If you sync from the Wii Menu or Wii Channel Menu, it may appear to sync, but will not save.

2. Dead batteries. In a couple of cases, the batteries included with the Wii Fit Balance Board have arrived dead. Make sure you have a set of 4 spare AA batteries to try this step.

3. Too much time between hitting the sync / synchro buttons. Make sure you are relatively close to your Wii Console when pressing the Synchro / Sync button on the Wii Fit Balance Board. As soon as you see the power light flash, immediately press the sync button on the Wii Console.

have just tried the synchro and each time the remote turns itself off, and a message appears on the screen: communications with the wii remote have been interrupted. Please press A to continue. Getting very frustrated now.

Anonymous said...

I found that after hitting the sync button on the Balance Pad or Wii Remote, if you hold the sync button on the Wii for just 7 seconds and letting go it works everytime.

Anonymous said...

have tried the synchro button but the power light on the board does not light up, have changed the batteries,so whats wrong?

Anonymous said...

Ours was doing the exact same thing as yours this morning. The batteries had run out and when we replaced them, the board wouldn't reconect without affecting the remote. We just fixed it. The trick was timing when you hit the sync buttons. We just followed the instructions above, a few times, until it worked. Watch for the blue light on the board to stay on steadily and you've got it.

damageddude said...

I borrowed my brother's wii fit board to play it on my wii. We couldn't sync it to my system. I know the instructions say "only one Wii Balance Board can be synchronized to a Wii console at a time." Does that also mean the reverse; that only one Wii console can be synchronized to a board?

Ken Hanscom said...

A balance board can be sync'd on multiple Wiis. I'd consider taking out the batteries for a few minutes and then retrying. Most likely just a transient issue.

-Ken

Brian said...

I am having trouble with my wii fit board. The blue linking light is not even blinking anymore. I've replaced the batteries with fresh ones but to no avail. Any suggestions?

Ken Hanscom said...

Brian,

If you are not evening getting the blinking or blue lights on your Wii Fit, it sounds like you Wii Fit has a much more serious problem than just syncing. I would recommend giving Nintendo a call to see if they can replace the Wii Fit for you.

-Ken

Amy said...

I have tried to connect my wii fit board with my wii console but it doesn't work. i click A to start the wii fit game and i can hear the cd processing but all it displays on my tv is a black screen and nothing happens. why is this? PLEASE help! thanks

The first most common problem paragraph states that the game should be running for the sync to occur. We have carried out the sync several times when the game is running (i.e. during the initial introduction) and the board appears to sync with the console because the LED stays on. We then follow the steps for entering height and age and then when it comes to the "body test" stage, it instructs us to turn the power on and stand on the board. We then have two problems, 1) the power is already on and it immediately instructs us to step off the board when we're not even on it and 2) when we step off the board a message appears saying "stand off the board and press A". No matter what we then do i.e. stand back on & press A, step off & press A etc, it keeps reverting back to the same message and we can't get any further.

Any ideas?

The seven second rule worked for me - thanks!!

Kellie said...

hi, my wii balance board keeps on losing communications with the wii while i'am using it, for instance today i was doing the 30min free step and it repeatedly lost connection and i had to keep on holding in the button on the board to restart it as the wii instructed me to do. i have also changed the batteries so i know it cant be that. if you have any ideas of how i can resolve the problem they would be very much appreciated thanks

Nina said...

I have the same problem as that mentioned by Anonymous on 7/30/2008 but can't find a reply to see how he/she fixed it.

Our Wii was bought on Amazon (UK) and the Wii Fit was bought on Amazon (Germany). The board and console sync. We then follow the steps for entering height and age and then when it comes to the "body test" stage, it instructs us to turn the power on and stand on the board. The power is already on and it immediately instructs us to step off the board when we're not even on it. A message appears saying "stand off the board and press A". No matter what we then do i.e. stand back on and press A, step off and press A etc, it keeps reverting back to the same message and we can't get any further.

We know that the board appears in the P4 slot so we know that the Wii console can see the board. We've confirmed this by taking the batteries out and watching the battery indicator go out on P4.

Does anyone know what's wrong please? Can anyone help?

I have justs bought the wii balance board and it works great with batteries but as soon as I put the rechargeable battery pack that I bought (with the stand etc) it keeps losing connection. I put the batteries back in and its ok. The battery pack is charged so God Knows????

VeroLemoine said...

I feel desperate: I bought a first Wii balance board for my elder daughter's birtday; we installed it to test it on the family Wii console, and everybody had a lot of fun. My daughter is a student and does not live with us, so she flew away at the end of the day with her balance board( then she installed it on her own wii console without any problem). I was so enthusiastic about the balance board that I bought a second one for the rest of the family: the problem is that our Wii console refuses to sync with this second balance board: I am aware that you cannot install two boards at the same time, but how can I "erase" the fisrt balance board from our wii console memory and sync with the new one?

Anonymous said...

I have the same problem as Kelley on 8/25. Also loses communication during 30 minute Free Step. Also changed batteries and still have problem. Any suggestions would be most helpful!

Help! My Wii fit board is not "functioning properly" when tested it cannot even detect my weight. It can detect my husband but says it is not functioning properly and there is a RED X on the lower right sensor.
Can this be fixed....by me?? what is wrong?

Anonymous said...

i am getting very upset because i have wanted the wii fit for the longest time now i have it and the sync wont work :(

Anonymous said...

I am now starting to think this is a serious problem. We startd trying to sync the wii fit board with the console while there was a game in the console other than the wii fit game. A screen popped up saying we needed an update and if we accepted the update and for some reason it did not work, the console would shut down. Well, after accepting, the wii console won't even turn on. Any help would be appreciated.

Melissa said...

Our balance board won't sync either. But we are also having trouble with the Wii-motes losing sync when the cursor goes off the screen, as well as strange behavior such as upside cursor and left being right/vice versa. At first I thought it was the christmas tree/candles in the room because i had read that could be a problem. We also have mirrors behind the TV that I thought could interfere but even with the room completely dark, the wii-motes still have sync issues and the balance board won't sync. I'm afraid that this is a console issue. I called Nintendo but they were experiencing "unusually high call volume" and did not give me the option to hold the line and wait for an operator. Go figure.

I have the same problem as amy posted on the 7/30/2008 . when we hit the start button to sync the screen turns off and nothing else happens ....What can I do ?
It has b een a few days ....we are looking on the net and noone to help......

Ashley said...

I'm having a problem getting the balance board to center. it's on a flat surface, the "feet" are on properly, etc. When I do a Wii balance board check, it says the the back left is not working and to check the manual. Wel, the manual doesn't actually tell you how to fix it. How do I configure the balance board so that the right/left back/ front are all working evenly???

Anonymous said...

For those of you who are having the "Communication to the balance board has been interrupted", especially during Free Step, I have been having the same problem. The problem stopped when I moved the Wii remote far out of the range of the wii sensor bar (don't hold it while stepping...throw it on the couch or a chair nearby, so you can still hear it...make sure it is not pointing at the TV.)

Anonymous said...

It worked after I was in the body test, and used the 7 second rule.

Anonymous said...

I also had the repetitive "get off the unit and press A" problem. The board syncs up fine and the self test says all is OK. I tried all the things above with no joy. I have just talked to a rep at Nintendo who said a lot of these problems are caused by aftermarket battery packs, which conveniently voids the warranty. Apparently the Wii Fit is susceptible to small power surges which can happen with the aftermarket battery packs and chargers. The only fix in my case is a new Fit. Too bad the store I bought it from had a deal that packaged the after market battery pack with the Wii Fit, but I am outside the 30 day return.

Cathleen said...

MPORTANT: Do not press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the Wii console down for more than 10 seconds. This will delete all of the Standard Mode synchronization information for all Wii Remotes that you use with that console.....

I DID THIS accidently...now what? How can i restore standard mode sych to all remotes??

Anonymous said...

will you be able to use 2 wii fitness boards together in the future??

Amyy x said...

I did not read the ''IMPORTANT: Do not press and hold the SYNCHRO Button on the Wii console down for more than 10 seconds. This will delete all of the Standard Mode synchronization information for all Wii Remotes that you use with that console.'' section in the manual when trying to sync, and now when i press any button on my wii remote, the bottom 4 squares flash,blue, but then just go off again. First time i tried it a message appears on the screen: communications with the wii remote have been interrupted. Please press A to continue. Only bought the wii fit yesterday and its driving me mad - getting very frustrated! Please help xx

um.. i added new batteries and now my board wont turn on!

Luke T said...

well, i have a similar problem, but is a little different!!
My wii balance board is constantly turned on whether the actuall wii console is on or not. The blue light of the board is always on and will only be turned off if i take the batteries out! Even though the light is turned on making it look like the board is synced, it isnt. The wii is not registering it on the screen and tells me the board is turned off. please help!!!!

Awesome instructions, easy to follow for us not-so-tech-savvy people! Thank you!

Leah said...

The seven-second trick worked for me too! Thank you so much!

Anonymous said...

I know this may seem silly, but mine refused to sync until the power button was facing toward me and the front of the WiiFit board was aimed at the Wii Console.

Don't know if I just got lucky on that try or if that is what made the difference, but I thought I should just give another option for troubleshooting.

black screen appears when game is open and the wii fit won't synchronize

Killian Mc Grath said...

Thank You

Benoit Miller said...

Thanks for the post... Just needed to start the game (the one step missing from the manual!) and doing the sync from there. Without Wii Fit running, the balance board wouldn't sync at all...

Anonymous said...

When playing tightrope, the character starts jumping by itself at the beginning of the game even though nobody is straightening knee.. It kept on saying straighten knees right at the beginning and character jumped off the screen. That is way before the "monster" comes along on the rope. What is happening?

DGF said...

Hi,
I now have to sync my board every time I turn it on, whether I am already playing with the wii fit or not.
In fact, we have to go so far as the screen when the wii says to start the board before we can try to sync. It will not sync from any other page.
Any ideas?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for posting the instructions online. It worked. I connected my additional wii remotes and wii board.

Thanks,

My problem turned out to be the actual Wii console, not the Wii Fit Board!

Whenever I got to the part of Wii Fit where the user engages the power button on the Wii Board, the blue light would just blink, and then both controllers would lose sync. Thinking that it was the Board, I exchanged it for another brand new one. After having the exact same problem AGAIN (Nintendo's tech support had never heard of it) I went out and exchanged the Wii console.

We haven't had any synching problems since replacing the old console with the newer one, so my guess is that the defect was either in the console, or perhaps in the sensor thingie.

Hope this helps!

Christine said...

I had recently replaced my balance board as the other one became faulty. I now cant get the board to sync with my console. How can I over rided the old board settings? I have tried sync'ing and also I have cleared all controllers by holding the sync button down and starting over but it still wont sync. Please help!

Anonymous said...

I am a fairly intelligent person, however I was stumped! I kept trying to follow the instructions and sync my board and it just wasn't working, so I turned to the web and you saved my sanity!
Thank you for those simple words...turn the game on first!

Jen said...

Just wanted to say thanks -- after I replaced the batteries I couldn't get mine working again. Had trouble synching, even after following the directions above, until I gave up and set it down with the power button on the floor facing me and the front of the WiiFit board aimed at the console, as Anonymous had posted above. Then it powered on and stayed on and was good as new. Maybe that's part of the trick.

Anyway, thanks!

Alex said...

I am having the same problem as a few others have mentioned. After I put the game disc in the screen goes black and I am unable to do anything.
Do you know why this is happening?

Amy said...

This was incredibly helpful. I thought it was just the batteries and actually went out to get a new pack. When it wasn't working still, that's when I consulted good ol google, and you popped up.

Thanks for your indepth response to the problem, everything is working great now!

I have been trying to re-synchronise the Wii board for weeks since the re-chargeable batteries were completely flat. As I had done it the first time I thought it would be straightforward. How wrong could I be? It must have been a fluke the first time!... Thank you so much for the help....everything is now fine

We have had problems syncing our wii fit board for months. We gave up and put it away. I just bought a new game mario and sonic at the olympic games so out came the board but again after following all the instructions and after looking online for an answer I worked it out. When you start the game you have to use your wiimote you then select the balance board option when you are choosing options in the game only AFTER you have selected the wii balance board option press sync button on board (under battery cover) then press sync button on wii console but it must be while the blue light is still flashing on the board. Thats how I got mine to sync after MONTHS of trying good luck!

Thanks Ken Hanscom. That was just what I needed.

for the person who had a mii who would bounce on tightrope or while playing certain balance games - we had this problem too. I checked the board and noticed a dog hair stuck where the board meets the foot of the unit. plucked it out and everything works great now - no bouncing. Maybe check for something similar on your board? Maybe this will help :)

At first i couldnt get my board to sync but then after going to the internet i got it to work. So i go to use it the next day and it says its not synched (with the game i had synched it with the day before) and now i cant get it to sync?!

Attempting to measure weight. Contantly stating figiting. Attempted to re sync, change batteries, power down and unplug unit. Continues to have the same problem. No problems playing the game.

I have done the 7 second rule put new batteries in the balance board made sure the wii fit game is running and still the balance boar wont sync.. it has worked in the past, this sync issue is new. are there any other things I could try because I am going to sell it but cant because of this sync problem.

Janis said...

Yeah! The 7 second rule worked for me too. Press the Wii board button...wait about 7 seconds...and then press the Wii console button. I think the key is to not press the Wii console button too quickly after pressing the board button. Yay!

We were in near tears yesterday. After shopping for the balance board for weeks and weeks and finally scoring one for my son - it refused to sync. I even thought I had purchased a defective one.

Syncing is the STUPIEST feature of the wii. ANY other system on earth you can just freakin' use your controllers on your friend's system without days of frustration. My wii Fit sometimes loses sync during play. I have to re-sync it every day, as it ALWAYS loses sync overnite when its not even on. And half the time it de-syncs my wii motes. The board works fine and the remotes work fine. Its a really stupid feature, though.

Nat said...

Hi - I have the same issue as Kellie (8/25/2008) - the wii balance board keeps on losing communications with the wii while i'am using it, especially for me during the boxing. I have changed the batteries and resynced the board - has anyone else resolved this particular issue? It's driving me crazy! Thanks

Cliff said...

Hi,

We are having the same problem as Nat and kellie in that after about 30 mins of game play the board is losing communications. Have tried new, different brank of batteries and resync of all remotes and the board, but so far have been unable to fix. i am starting to think this is a fault on the wii fit.

Anonymous said...

Ok, I had the "stand off the board and press A" no matter what I tried with regard to synching it standing on it stepping off, and the wii said that my board was functioning normally. I found help that said to remove the feet and then loosen the sensor feet that I needed and allen wrench 5/32. This worked immediately for the "step off message" but then I had to play with it for a few hours trying to get the weight correct again by tightening and the loosening sensor but eventually it is working again (although I think it's about 2lbs off now). another thing to note is not to put feet on too tight because I had the same error again, although I tried loosening only the feet first without loosening sensor but this didn't work, until I loosened the sensor pads. I would try feet first and then sensor if needed, but have a scale handy to check your weight with. Good luck, hope this helps others!

My light will not flash either. I tried to call Nintendo, but they are closed for the holiday. I tried everything recommended on this site with no luck. The light was flashing, but not connecting so we changed batteries (twice), pulled the batteries out for about 10 minutes, unplugged the console..... Any suggestions?

Anonymous said...

The 7 second rule RULES! I did it a little differently (pushed the sync button on the board and then held the console sync button for 7 seconds) but it worked. You might try waiting 7 seconds before pushing the console button, just to avoid accidentally erasing the programmed syncs.

7 seconds worked for me too! I pressed the balance board sync and then pressed the console sync straight after. I had tried all sorts for weeks before doing this.

I had the trouble where the wii said to step off the board and press A when I was not standing on the board the above tip worked, I loosened the feet and then the sensor pad. It really does work. I had called Nintendo help center twice but no one could tell me this. Of course for $60 I could send my board in to the repair center and get it back in 2-3 weeks. What a rip off; ten minutes and my board work fine. They aught to be shame to treat customers like this knowing what the problem with the board is.

Thanks so much for hosting this topic!

Anonymous said...

Here's a simple solution to this problem that we never thought about until recently.... since the balance board connects as the player 4 controller, it needs to have line-of-sight communication with the sensor bar. However, with the balance board being on the floor that line of sight might be blocked by the TV stand.
We fixed our interruption problem by simply moving the sensor bar forward to the front edge of the TV stand.

Anonymous said...

I find that i get stuck on the "do not stand on the board and press power screen" the one that comes up when you first go into bodytest. I press the power button and nothing happens. It is so frustrating, i keep going in an out of different exercises until it eventually says "initiallising" and then it is fine. Sometimes it can take me 20 minutes and then I have no time to workout!

I would like to say thank you for posting the information on syncing the balance board. Most other sites didn't have the key information out about having to sync with each game and having to have the game running.

thanks again - my wife and daughter who tried to get the board working unsuccessfully for ages are now happy :-)

Reading all your comments, I'm thinking that since I have my old board synced to my console, the new board will not sync. Did I miss in the posts- how do I disconnect my old board that doesn't work anymore so I can use my new board?

My problem: bought new board on Amazon, trying to sync it but power light only flashes three times, not enough time to make a sync. I've changed batteries twice. I'm following the directions. They are not difficult to understand.

What was the 7 second rule mentioned!

How do we know if our wikis are compatible on where they are made?

My seller from Amazon is being very helpful sending me places for answers, but unfortunately, I'm not finding anything that will work for me. I'm assuming she's had others with this trouble as well.

Please help. I loved my first board...I would love to use my second.

I purchased a brand new balance board along that came with the wii fit U trainer. I have attempted everything posted and still not getting any type of sync between the balance board and the console. This is getting quite frustrating.
