    Alright, I bought a Wiimote at launch (November 2006) and it broke actually last summer. The battery receptor thingies are faulty, so like, even with batteries in the Wiimote, it doesn't power on. I've been far too lazy so far to try and get it fixed or to buy another one.

    But now I feel like I really should get it fixed.
    Soooo,
    Anyone have a good idea how I can get around to fixing it?
    Could I send it to Nintendo or something and pay them to fix it?
    Somethin like that?

    Thanks for all help, appreciated.

    They're like $20-$30. Yours is 3 years old. Just buy a new one. I don't think anyone offers a remote fix service.

    Try sending it to nintendo but considering it is out of warranty, and you have to pay for P&H, it may only be slightly cheaper than a new one.
