    my cousin broke my wii remote 2day. He just let it go after a swing and it hit the table, then flew up in te air hid my wardrobe and fell back down on the table. It looks ok there are no marks but when i press anything the lights dont come up.

    does any1 know how to fix it or if there is somewher i can send it?

    How old is the wiimote? Is it still within warranty? If it is, and there's definitely no sign of external damage, just take it back to the retailer and tell them it stopped working. ;)

    I don't know whereabouts you are, but if bought new in the UK it should have a 12 month warranty.

    If not, are there any tips here that might help:

    Apparantly, "spanking it" often does the trick.

    it is a lesson to all wii gamers. whenever you play any wii game, make sure you fasten the strap properly so the wii-mote does not slip out from your hands.

    LMAO spanking a wii mote... or you could buy a new wii mote then switch em, take it back and complain and get 2 wii motes for the price of one... but that is immoral...
