Still have an issue?

If you have another Wii Remote available, try using the Wii MotionPlus accessory with it. If everything works, your original Wii Remote may need fixing.

If this does not work, you’ll need to send both your Wii Remote and Wii MotionPlus accessory for inspection.

You can book your Wii Remote(s) and accessories in for inspection by the Nintendo Customer Support Team.
