Up until a few days ago it worked fine. Now, the little blue lights don't come on when you push buttons and the wii itself denies its existence. I'm thinking there's something wrong with the inner mechanics - science has proven that the batteries work fine. Is it possible/reasonable to take the thing apart and try to fix it? I think it needs a special screwdriver... or should I just get it replaced? Also, does anyone happen to know if this is a common problem? Because I can't think of any recent wiimote-on-solid-object collisions that could explain this.
