Question about Nintendo Wii Console
When you point the remote at the tv it only works on the left 1/2. I have replaced the batteries, checked all of the connections, cleaned the sensors, and even moved the sensor on top of the tv.
The lights on the christmas tree must interfere with the remote and sensor. we just have to make sure to turn off the tree when we play - go figure...

How to Use the Remote Control to Complete
the Initial Setup
The technical term is "Navigation"- how you move through the
on-screen menus. The method is the same throughout the menu
screens: highlight your choice and select it.
To highlight a menu item, press the arrow buttons on the remote
to highlight one of the items listed on the screen. Use the up or
down arrow button to move up or down. Use the right or left
arrow button to move right or left.
To select the item that you've highlighted, press OK.
Note: Highlighted means that the menu item stands out from other
menu items on the list (appears darker, brighter, or a different color).
Turn on the TV
Press TV on the remote, or press POWER on the TV's front panel.
Note: Pressing the TV button not only turns on the TV, but puts the remote
into TV mode. "TV mode" means that the buttons on the remote control
operate the TV's functions.
Complete the Initial Setup
The menu system in your TV allows the TV's features to work
properly. The first time you turn on your TV, the SETUP screen
appears with Language highlighted. The default language is
English. To choose another language, press the right arrow
button on the remote.
If these doesn't work, the infrared sensor inside your Tv has got damaged and should be replaced. OK.
