Hi,

if you,ve bought the console second-hand, such as from e-bay et,c. contact the seller as it,s faulty. if it,s new and warranted, return to merchant for refund/replacement. you can check the consoles security seals. it may be that you,ve purchased a failed mod-chip attempted console.

Hi,

if you take out the batterys in the controller, you,ll see a small button/switch.
use this for the sensor bar, to receive the signal being transmitted from the controller to the sensor.
You may alternatively, have to reset in the settings menu.

Happy Gaming.

    Hi,

    you,ve got 1 of 2 problems, first the tv leads are not in correctly, the tv needs to be tuned into the console, try channel 8 or above. finally you,ve got a damaged unit, graphic chip blown.

    Hi,

    Depending on which country your in. USA/UK there are repair services available.

    However if the onboard Graphics chip ( GPU ) Has blown. it will be more economical to obtain a replacement console. the cost of repairing something like this will cost £100 or $180+

    i,d suggest locating a local games console repair specialist, or obtaining a replacement motherboard, then having it fitted.



    Hope this helps you out.



    p.s if your in the UK, i may be able to help you further.



    Thankyou for using Fixya.

    Hi,



    if you,re in the uk. and you can ship it to me, i can have a look at it for you.

    my buddy does these, i,m mainly laptop, computers and xboxes.

    i can probably get you a competative quote, better than shop prices.



    mike @ compurepair.



    please leave e-mail address for further information.

    Hi,

    Then i can e-mail you Back, when i have your address.

    Hi,



    Thats a million Dollar Question, like how longs a piece of String.

    Until the console is actually looked at, who knows ?

    could be a simple fix, might need a new motherboard.

    Could be a simple resistor or capacitor blown, or the main gpu chip.

    I can,t run through the routines of testing, and repairing on this site.

    Otherwise i,ll get swamped with Nintendo Wii repair Advice et,c.



    I don,t know wether your aware, but as a fixya expert.



    Most experts give advise on this site for Free, unfortunately repairs cost time and money.



    If you add any further posts, please leave a contact number or e-mail address, and i will contact you direct.

Cant get the cursor to show on screen


Make sure that your Sensor Bar is connected properly and that there is no damage to the wire connect it to the Wii.

You may have to place the Sensor Bar else where and reconfigure it to work again.

Ref: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ht_system.jsp
-Connect the Sensor Bar under Wii Console in the left menu.

Perform a remote power requirements check. For example, check for batteries in remote control compartments, replace with fresh new batteries for desired operations. Alternatively, the remote control would require power on buttons before functioning with NIntendo. Locate controls power button to initatiate process.

Remote wont work when trying to connect to wii menu


There's two things I know of that could be causing this: either the batteries are too low, or the remote is no longer synced to your console for some reason. The batteries are easy enough to check--just replace them and see if the problem is fixed. If that doesn't work, try resyncing your remote. Each remote has to be synced to your particular console, and won't work on any others. There are buttons you have to press on both the remote and the console that sync the two together--there should be detailed instructions in the Wii manual.

My wii remote


@ Slivic22
Some games does not use Sensor Bar pointing because they play with motion/accelerometer only. After you select the number of sets on Wii Sports Tennis, there is no Sensor Bar pointing except for Pause menu. That's because you Swing the remote like a racket.

HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!


I've had this same problem. Remove the batteries from the remotes. Then disconnct the power cord from the back of the Wii and disconnect the power cord from the wall. Let it sit for 5 min. Double check that the sensor bar is plugged into the Wii and check the cord for any breaks that might stop the signal. After you are sure that the sensor bar is connected and the 5 min. have gone by plug it all back in, install your batteries and re-sync it.
