I have changed the batteries, unplugged/plugged the Wii, resynched the remotes, made sure the recieving bar on top of TV was in place. Still one remote works fine either as p1 or p2 while the other one will not show the cursor on the screen. The bottons on that one still work such as scrolling + or - or powering down.

Could be a couple of different problems. Have you tried a different remote? If that doesn't work you may have a lose connection. Try making sure the cable from your IR bar on the tv is plugged all the way in. If it is and still doesn't work then you might need a new IR bar.
If that doesn't work then it's in the console itself. You can try an update but if that doesn't work then you may need repair/replacement.

If using the Wii IR bar, ensure that it is plugged into the red socket in the back of the Wii and that the bar is setting on top of or below your TV. If you are using an aftermarket wireless IR bar, ensure that it has good batteries and is turned on.

to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii

if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate.
