Wireless sensor bar needs setting up

Hi
Quite a funny story. My dog chewed through the edge of the sensor bar, obviously the wii had no signal from then. When I heard about the new wireless bars we went out and purchased one from argos. In a rush to play on his wii my eight year old son cut open the packaging accidentaly cutting through the spare wire that came with the sensor. " It doesnt matter" he said "its wireless". Consequently the wii will still not work, however I didnt see any instructions of how to set up the sensor bar, so is there some procedure I need to follow? Any help would be appreciated thanks

    FYI, those instructions you say to go to...it requires that your sensor bar is working properly to begin with cuz you have to "access the system setting" and the ONLY way to do that is to point at it with your wand! So frustrating!

Console not responding. have changed remote and sensor bar


Hi there,
This information comes directly from Nintendo's website. Hope this can be of help:
First, follow these guidelines to ensure you have set up the system properly to have the optimal environment in which to use the Wii Remote:
  • Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen (more info).
  • Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote.
  • The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV.
  • Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii console, and the Wii Remote.
  • Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles, sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves.
  • Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically. Check for wireless devices such as cordless phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices, and move or turn them off.

Verify Sensitivity Setting dots:
Go to the Sensor Bar's sensitivity setting in the Wii menu.

  • If only one or no dots appear on the sensitivity screen, there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar.

  • If there are more than two dots, then it appears there is an additional light or infrared heat source being picked up by the Wii Remote. Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.

Sensor bar doesn't work


Questions:
1) Is the bar plugged into the console?
2) Did your cat or dog chew through the wire?
3) Have you tried using the setup menu to alter the remote's sensitivity?
4) Is anything interfering with the sensor bar, such as a reflective surface or other lighting in the room? Shiny coffeetable tops and fluorescent lights aren't friendly to the Wiimote. Try covering reflective surfaces and playing with the lights off.
5) If you get a replacement and still have the same problem, then the problem is with the Wiimote.
