Remote wont connect to sensor bar

Try taking a picture of it with a cell phone or a digital camera. If there are no lights that show on the screen then it may be the battery's are dead. If you had put in new battery's then the sensor bar is broken. The wii sensor bar is just a row of infrared L E D's and dose not sync to the controller. The controller has a camera in it and will see the lights and determine where to put the courser on the screen. You cant see the lights because its not within the light spectrum humans can see.

Hi there

you have the sync error

This needs to be repaired.

you can send the console to Nintendo for free if in warranty, if out of warranty then this will cost you around $150, the whole process will take 4-6 weeks

I prefer the Wii repair guide Method, download the guide and follow the simple step by step instructions and fix the problem in less than an hour, no hassle, low cost everybody is happy.

Best Regards

The sensor bar cord plugs into the Wii sensor connector in the back of the Wii. I have posted the Wii manual here. If your having trouble, refer to pages 13-16 in the manual. Thank you for using FixYa! =)

This is usually a problem caused by the motherboard. If you bought a new Sensor bar and nothing works and all controllers are synced to the system, I would send this system in for repair. As, it would take board work to get your system functioning again.

I hope I helped!, GoodLuck!

I am having a problem with the Wii sensor bar. It is

if you can't get any sensor bar to work then it has to be the main board on the Wii is bad since that is where it connects to. If your Wii is under warranty, contact the store to bring it back and get a new one.

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.

Wii doesnt turn on

Okay, I had this problem also, it made me freak out, considering it was only 1 week old! what I did, and it worked, is
1. unplug every wire connected to the system (wires to/from wall, to sensor bar, and to/from TV)
2. unplug every other thing connected to it (i.e. memory cards, older controlers, etc...)
3. let it stand off in the dark for a couple of minutes (I reccomend 5 minutes or so)
4. plug the wires back in
5. turn it on
6. put anything else back in (i.e. the memory card)

If that doesn't work, or if this keeps happening, I reccomend bringing it back to the place you bought it (Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc)
, b/c they can give you a new one, or your money back. However, the warrenty could expire, or not even exist if you bought it online, or if you've had it too long.

I hope I helped you!

The wire of the nintendo wii sensor is riped

well that basicle means that you cant play your wii because your wii motes cant register to the wii. wii sensor bars are pretty cheap and if you dont want the hassle of wires everywhere then you can just get a wireless sensor bars that are pretty pricy but not too bad. the downside of a wireless sensor bar is that the connection isnt that great and it drains battery life life CRAZY.

Buy a new sensor bar. None of my 5 Wii remotes had a cursor on screen so I bought a new sensor bar and it worked fine.
