If you have more than one remote, you may have to "sync" the remotes to your Wii system.
1. Open the battery cover on your remote and press the red "SYNC" button. The lights on the remote should begin flashing.
2. Open the cover on SD Card slot on the console and press the "SYNC" button.
3. The lights on the remote should stop flashing after a few seconds. Your remote is now ready for use.
This process must be repeated for each new remote.
Your sensor bar is definitely burned out, you can get a new wireless one at wal-mart for $20. Often wii sensor bars burn out because people put it directly on the tv instead of using the stand, the tv gets hot and the LED lights in the sensor bar burn out. If you want make sure that it's the sensor bar that's broken, get a video camera and video tape the sensor bar while it's plugged in and the wii is on, if you can't see four LED lights on each side then it's broken.
Get some regular alkaline AA batteries and try your Wii Remote using them -- the blue lights on the Wii remote should light up and register with the Wii console (this is via wireless / bluetooth) -- As for the sensor bar, it is really only an infra red emitter - so if you have it properly connected to your Wii, the Wii Remote (with working batteries) can sense where it is by "seeing" the lights emitted from your sensor bar.
If the alkaline batteries work - You may need to get some new NiMH AA batteries to use in your charger - changers are usually third party devices; Nintendo does not ship charging stations with the Wii.
If the Wii remote appears to be working (blue lights and all) and your sensor bar is properly connected, you may have a dirty or damaged IR port. First clean the top of the Wii remote, just to make sure. If it still does not work, borrow a friends Wii Remote and check to see if it works with your system. If you do everything above and your Wii remote does not work while a seperate one does, the problem is most likely a broken Wii remote.
press the sync button on both the wii and the wii remote through the
batt door on the remote and the button behind a door like thing next to
the disk slot the blue lights flash then press wii red sync button
again while pointing remote two at the sensor this should bring it on
First of all, do you have a sensor? If you don't you should get one because you can ONLY make movements with a sensor. If you do put the sensor in a place that you'll be pointing your Wii remote at. Example: Try putting the sensor on top of a short television. Always try to point at the television because the sensor can detect the Wii remote. Hope that helps!
Cursor not appearing Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make
sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading
the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game
to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the
cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the
Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii
Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii
Remote designated as "Player
1" to function.
Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions
and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer
lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.
Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then
opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button
to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii
Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength.
Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1)
or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting,
if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate.
For guidelines on using batteries, please click

This happened to my son. I did some reading and found out you have to resynchronize the remote. This is from the manual
1) Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2)Remove th battery cover on the back of the remote and press the SYNC. button inside the cover. The Player LEDs will blink.
3)Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment
4)When the Player LED blinking stops,connection is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number.
This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii remote added to your system.
