Does your Nintendo Wii Remote no longer make noises or sounds when you know there should be? Nintendo Wii Remotes are susceptible to a range of problems that could cause them to stop producing sound, some of which are simple to fix. Check the following possible causes to identify and solve the problem.
Cause 1: Dirty Contacts
If the Nintendo Wii Remote’s speaker is not making a proper connection onto the motherboard, it might be due to dirt or dust disrupting the signal to the speaker. Use this cover plate removal guide to take off the cover plate and reach the remote’s speaker. Once you have removed the cover plate, locate the two circular gold speaker contacts and lightly brush them off with a new, dry toothbrush to remove any dirt or dust.
Cause 2: Burnt-Out Remote Speaker
If your Nintendo Wii Remote’s speaker still does not make any sound when you know a noise should be made, there may be a problem with the internals of the remote’s speaker. Use the Nintendo Wii Remote speaker replacement guide to replace the remote’s speaker.
