    Hi,
    I have strange problem - wiimote (need to mention - not original) port stops working and not recognise nunchuck. Besides wiimote works fine. Is there any solution or stop bothering this ? :D

    Need to figure out if it's the nunchuck or the wiimote. Got another nunchuck to test it with? If it's the nunchuck, replace it. If it's the wiimote, you could get a soldering iron and replace the port. Or replace it (easier option).

    The connector in the wiimote is probably cheap and is worn out...
    You could probably take it apart and fix it with a soldering iron.


    edit: beaten >_> bastard!

    It's definitely wiimote - i've tried with 4 different nunchucks. Do i need to solder all 10 spots or only 4 big ones? (Arrows are pointing on led)
    Im thinking to buy really cheap wiimote (or even broken one) just to get this port :)

    The big ones are ground for the metal chassi around the connector. The 6 small ones are for the actual connector.

    Edit, in order to remove the connector, you will have to desolder all 10 points. Unless you want to break the connector.
