    Hi,
    My Wiimote hit my table today. The Power Button was displaced, but I could fix it with a simple operation. Fine, it works again... and not [​IMG]

    This is the problem: when I connect my Wiimote(press a button), it connects(sometimes), but it loses connection after a few seconds. The LED stays burning for 2 seconds while it's disconnected, then nothing, and I have to wait ~15 seconds or put out and in the batteries to make it 'work' again. Sometimes it rumbles when it disconnects, sometimes my Wii acts like a button is pressed. Very weird problem.

    Has anyone got a clue for this?
    Thanks

    Try a full synchronisation by pressing the red button on your wii then the red button on your Wiimote

    Try syncing it with a PC and use it to diagnose problems by reading the raw input data [​IMG]

    Or just try what Shuny said.

    I did so, but still it doesn't work. VERY strange. It does somethikng else each attempt. Now I don't have to press a Wiimote button after the undesired disconnection, to reconnect it. So now it stays connected, but the Wii doesn't get a signal. Well, it will be something else in a few minutes, I'm wondering what.

    I think I have to get a new Wiimote tomorrow...

    @Artic flame: will do

    I know this may sound obvious, but have you tried new batteries?

    I tried to establish a Bluetooth connection a few times, but it didn't work(it did before the problem started)

    Replacing the batteries didn't help.

    I found out this: if I wait some minutes not using the Wiimote, it can be connected for ~1 minute before the problems start. If I reconnect it after a shorter time, the problem occurs after a few seconds.

    Something is very dead... [​IMG]
