So if you are still wondering--or for anyone else looking--I MAY have an answer. It should help someone, anyway. I got my game used from Game Stop. It came with FOUR sensors,which was weird, but whatever. Until I tried using it. First, I realized I didn't get the USB connector. Ok, went back and got that. Then I tried syncing. First one didn't work, so I tried the second arm/heart sensor band. It worked! Then the leg sensor. I tried that stupid thing for more than 30 minutes, unsynced my remote by accident in the process, and generally got my heart rate up just sitting there getting annoyed. Finally, something I read struck a chord. So I pulled the batteries from every sensor and looked at the label underneath. Sure enough, only 1 of the 4 sensors was for the Wii!! The other 3 are PS ones!!! AUGH! I called Game Stop and they found a leg band for me, which I will be picking up tomorrow. So the point is, if you got it used, check the label!
Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote. If the Wii Remote Jacket is being used, verify that it's securely in place on the Wii Remote. If the Wii Remote Jacket is askew, it might be partially blocking the infra-red sensor on the front of the Wii Remote.
Try a new set of batteries. Occasionally weak batteries can cause this type of behavior.
Reset the Wii Remote:
Take the batteries out of the Wii Remote, wait for one (1) minute, and then re-insert them.
Wait a few seconds before pressing any buttons to wake up the Wii Remote.
Re-sync the Wii Remote by using the steps listed above in the white box titled "Try these steps!".
Check the Directional Sensor Functionality by holding the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard.
Verify Sensitivity Setting dots: Go to the Sensor Bar's sensitivity setting in the Wii menu.
If only one or no dots appear on the sensitivity screen, there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar.
If there are more than two dots, then it appears there is an additional light or infrared heat source being picked up by the Wii Remote. Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.
If both dots appear and the erratic behavior continues even when you move closer to the TV, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired.
that means that the wii remote it out of reach (the light that human eyes cannot see is not seen) or you don't have the sensor plugged in, or the black thing on top is dirty, and you need to clean it for it to work. (this won't help if your wii is not responding to the wii remote.)
Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
Choose "Sensor Bar " and select "sensitivity"
Use the Wii Remote to get the cursor to get the two white dots in the test field.
If you see two blinking dots, then the sensitivity is currently set correctlyIf you don't see two blinking dots (they don't have to blink at the same time), adjust the sensitivity with the + and - buttons of the Wii Remote until you see two blinking dots.
Select "Confirm" to save the setting.
Please note that the higher the sensitivity setting, the more sensitive the Sensor Bar becomes to sunlight and various light sources. This may impact the operation of the Wii Remote. The initial recommended distance for using the Wii Remote Pointer is 3 to 8 feet from the Sensor Bar. Seeing more than two dots? If you see more than two dots on the Sensitivity screen, then the Wii Remote is picking up on additional light sources. Verify that there are no bright light sources, including sunlight, behind or near the TV, shining towards the Wii Remote or reflecting off the TV screen. Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.
This is a claimable accident if you don't mention the WII controller that should have been used with the strap. Did you witness it was that controller? Could have been the vacuum cleaner. I don't think it is that controller, because is with a protecting rubber cover.
The TV should not be used anymore and repair costs will not be of interest.
# Check that the Wii sensor bar is on or below the centre of the TV,and there is no obstruction with clear line of view between it and the Wiimote
# Go in Wii settings and check there are only 2 dots visible. If yes, crank up the Sensor bar sensitivity to 5 with 2 dots still visible, else adjust it till the 2 dots become stable at whichever sensitivity
# If there are more than 2 dots, there is some IR source in the rooms which is disturbing the wireless connection between the Wiimote and the sensor bar, so that source has to be removed from the room
Nothing else works, then resync the remote. Remove the batteries, wait couple of inutes, reinsert, and resync through the 2 red buttons.
There are a few issues with this problem, one of these solutions might help you.
1. Get a camera and turn it on. Aim it towards the right side of your Wii Sensor Bar, and then towards the left side of the wii sensor bar. If your camera has a video output, you should notice 5 dots that blink on the right side (3 lined in the center, and 2 on the outsides of the center), and the same on the left side. My sensor bar had the five lights working on the right side, but the 5 dots sporadically glitching on the left side, which means I needed a new sensor bar. This is a $10 fix.
2. If you use a charger station (one example is by NyKo) those can burn out the wiimote sensors. I have been using it for over two years and not had a problem, yet. The lady said it could cause issues. Most likely not. This is a send wii and remotes in to get fixed, which costs $95.
