Check the room you´re playing in for InfraRed sources, strong lamps such as halogen type lamps emmit high IR radiation(heat), also mirrors shiny windows and sunlight can interfeer with the wiimotes IR sensitive CCD, try to eliminate as many of the IR sources as possible. Hope this helps

My pointer just started jumping around, I have changed no settings or the position of my sensor bar ans my batteries are good


Try reducing the amount of light or glare in the room. If light bounces around the room it can affect the sensor.

Wii controllers bounce all over the screen,


If you get too far away from the sensor bar the "hand" will go all over the place. If you have the sensor bar that comes with the console you have to be within 15 feet If I remember. I use a wireless sensor bar that is good up to 25 feet.

Console does not respond to all remote actions, ie no cursor on screen,only the minus , home , and plus buttons work i have tried several remotes and changed the sensor bar.


I would try to re-sync the controller to the console.
1. Power on Wii
2. remove battery cover from wii remote; press sync button on remote, will cause LED's on remote to blink.
3. Press the sync button on the console (it is located in the memory card holder on the front of the console)
4. The remote is connected once the LED stops blinking. The lit LED indicated what player # the connected controller refers to.

If you are still having trouble then delete the configuration info first and then re-sync the controller to the Wii.
Do this by holding the SYNC button on the console for 15 seconds after turning the unit on (once you see the health and safety screen). After you do this you will need to re-sync the controller individually.

It also warns of bright light sources like sunlight near the sensor bar, highly reflective surfaces (mirros, etc.) behind the sensor bar, sources of infrared radiation (portable heaters or fireplaces) or radio interference from cordless phones, cell phones, etc. as possible causes of interference. See pages 22, 32, 34 of your Wii owner's manual for full information, or call 1-800-255-3700 if you are still having difficulty.

Hand icon wont appear on the Wii main menu


Well, mabey your sensor bar settings are out of wack. You might have your sensor bar set to above TV but you actualy have it below. To fix it, I would move the sensor bar to the opposite position, go into settings and chanage the sensor bar settings to the way you want. then put the sensor bar back where you want it.

Wii


(1)
Verify that the cable bar sensor is plugged into the back of the Wii console and that the sensor bar is properly aligned with the centre of your TV screen.
(2)
Check that the Wii remote is synchronized with the console using the POWER button on the remote control to turn on the Wii console. (The POWER button is the white button with the red symbol which is located in the upper left corner on the Wii remote.) If it does not work, try to synchronize the remote control, then turn the console and controls that respond correctly to commands.
(3)
Verify that the distance between the Wii remote and the TV display to be between 1 and 3 meters, that there are sources of intense light that can interfere with the proper functioning of the remote (read Guidelines game for Wii for more information ) And that the sensor bar is placed correctly (see Setting up the sensor bar). Avoid the presence of sources of infrared light as electric stoves, gas propane or kerosene, candles, fireplaces, stoves or other heat sources close to the console.

If the steps described above do not solve the problem, the sensor bar could have a problem. Read the following instructions:

On each side of the sensor bar are five infrared lights that located the position of the Wii remote. If these lights do not work, the cursor on the remote will not appear on the screen and you can not step through screens of settings. To see these lights, you must look on the LCD screen of a digital camera or a mobile phone. Verify that the sensor bar is connected and that the Wii console is turned on, and then framing the bar sensor so that it appears on LCD camera or cellphone. If you see five infrared lights on each side, the sensor bar works. Maybe you'll need to slightly adjust the position / tilt the camera or the telephone, but is rather easy to see these lights on the LCD screen
;)

Wii sensor bar


possibly, or low batteries in the remote. Try placing the bar under the tv if its above at the moment, or vice versa if currently below. Also make sure sensor bar overhangs tv slightly too...
