When using the
Classic Controller Pro
Note: Always refer to the instruction manual for each controller that you use.
Wearing the Wii Remote Wrist Strap

Note: If your strap lock has a lock lever, press the lock lever down until you hear a click. This will prevent the strap lock from loosening.
Neutral Position Reset Feature
If the buttons or sticks on a Nunchuk, Classic Controller, or Nintendo GameCube Controller are moved out of neutral position (see below) when the power is turned on, or when connecting to the Wii Remote (if applicable), that position will be set as neutral position, causing incorrect game control during game play. To reset neutral position for these controllers, do the following:
  • Classic Controller
    Take your fingers off the L Stick, R Stick, L Button, and R Button, and simultaneously hold down , , , and on the connected Wii Remote for approximately three seconds.
The neutral position is where no control sticks are tilted and no buttons are being pressed, as shown:
