It could be one of a few things.

1. Your sensor bar is no good, can you get the pointer icon on the wii's main menu to work properly?
To fix this you'll need to contact Nintendo and get a new sensor bar or buy one of the third party ones, Nintendo should help you out though.

2. The accelerometer in the wii is stuck, which does happen from time to time.
To fix this turn the Wii remote so the buttons face towards the floor and slap the back of the remote firmly(not too hard!) with the palm of your hand. It should work if that is the problem.

3. The accelerometer is broken or otherwise rendered useless.
To fix this you'll have to contact Nintendo.

To get a hold of Nintendo 1-800-255-3700 they're very friendly and it never takes very long(I got helped in 5 minutes the day after Wii was released.) Best of all, Nintendo doesn't outsource!

    Oh I forgot to add this, just in case, while attempting the fix mentioned in #2, hold onto the remote, don't let it fall.

Wii Remote Turning Funtion Doesn't Work on Mario Kart


Your wii sensor bar probably went out, replace it. They sell wireless ones at wal-mart for $20. If you want to make absolute sure that the bar is broken, take a video camera and take a quick video of the wii bar while it's connected and the wii is on. If you see four little blue lights on each side then you're wii bar is ok, if any are gone it should be replaced. The fact that all the buttons are still working means that your wii is still communicating with remote using bluetooth, but since it's not sensing any motion, it probably means that the problem is sensor bar related.

Wii Remote stopped working for no reason.


Well, pressing 1 and 2 doesn't work if your Wii remote came desynched. Press the Red Synch buttons on both the Wii console (located under the SD card flap) and the one on the back of the Wii remote, and hold one then the other for about 5 seconds. Should help.

Wii remote cursor not working in Wii Menu


I find it very irratating to navigate the wii menu as well. It seems our problem is the remote is very very sensitive to the sensor bar. You have to swing the remote around a bit to find the 'hand' you use to click on where you want to go. also, I find that I first have to press A when the menu comes, then almost have the remote 3 inches from the sensor bar. I have also tried putting the sensor bar in different loactions. Like, if we are playing standing up, we put the bar atop of the tv, otherwise if it is a game we can play while sitting, we put the sensor bar under the tv, on the stand (this is a 20") Try moving yours around and find out what works best for you. But it is frustrating as I too find that the remote is too dag 'on sensitive!! Even though I know it's fussy, we still have the problem daily, doen't get any easier! I hope this suggestion helps.

@ 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.

Wii freezing up


Hi Ashley,

It sounds like the accelerometer in your Wii Remote is not working properly.

The "point-and-click" stuff like the Wii Menu use the WIi Remote's camera (which is behind the dark part on the front of the Wii Remote). The motion-sensing for swinging, tilting and other motion uses the accelerometer in the Wii Remote.

Wrap your Wii Remote in a towel and give it a whack against your knee (not so hard as to injure your knee) - sometimes the accelerometer part gets "stuck" and needs to be jarred out of position.

If that still doesn't work, then go to Nintendo.com, click Support, and go to the Wii Troubleshooting section for more options.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp

Also, you don't have to use the same remote as #1. The first remote that is activated will become #1.

You can also push the Home button on the Wii Remote, then point to the bottom (where the battery levels are shown), press A, then click on Reconnect. It will tell you to press the 1 and 2 buttons on each remote in the order you want them to appear. Press the 1 and 2 buttons on the remote you want to be #1, wait for the remote to sync (the Wii will make a happy nosie), then do the same for the remote you want to be #2, etc.
