The same thing happens to me, except it happens when I play any game, mainly Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I replaced the batteries multiple times (at least 3), cleaned the black thing at the base of the remote, and tried to re-sync it many times. I have two (2) remotes, and the other one works perfectly. But this one doesn't. That means I have to TAKE TURNS if I want to play. WHY IS IT SO SCREWED UP?!? If you have any suggestions, please tell me!!!
