Question about Nintendo Controller add-on Nunchuck for Wii

Unrespsonsive Motion Sensor in Nunchuck

I've had this problem for a while now. In Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, the player is required to cast the Nunchuck forward, then pull it back in order to rip off certain door locks using the grapple lasso. My Nunchuck does not respond when I try to do this. Nintendo reps suggesting smacking the controller against my head to set the motion sensor back into place, but this didn't work. Is anybody else having this problem, and if they are, do they know what to do about you?

SOURCE: nunchuck wii problem

Most likely not a fault with either. Try not touching the nunchuk while the game is powering up, as moving the joystick while the game is powering up can cause these issues. If the problem is still happening, click the Wii Home button and open the Wii Remote Settings at the bottom of the screen. Choose the option to reconnect the remote, and then try again. If this doesn't work, ai am not really sure what is the issue. You may need to send to NOA for a checkup.

SOURCE: Nunchuck is not working even though connected to wii remote

The sensor may be gone.  The best way to test this is really easy and pretty cool to do.  Take two candles light them and then place them a little further apart than the wii sensor is.  If you are able to use the remotes then the sensor bar needs to be replaced and if ther is still nothing I would try replacing the controller because the infered led's may have gone out.  If that still does not work then the sensor decriptor in the wii has gone out.  Nintendo should be able to help you with that part.  But I do not think that it is the Wii.  I feel that your sensor bar is bad.

Must be the game I havent got it but you might need to clean your sensor bar with a clean tissue and then connect your wii remote to your nunchunk. Also clean the front of your wii remote . Try syching your remote with your console again this might help.

How do I sync the motion plus to the Wii remote?

There is no sync required. The motion plus connects directly to the Wii remote (where the nunchuck usually connects) and works through the Wii remote.
