I have the same. I don't think you can fix this - those games were made for older televisions, and the calibration doesn't accommodate for today's technology. Hottest Party 3, 4 and 5 go up to +/-20, I currently have mine set to +18 for my Samsung flat screen.
A lot of people are apparently having this problem. Since I don't own the game, I checked it out on Google and here are some helpful tips: 1) Replace the batteries with brand-new batteries. 2) Do the initial calibration off the ground. Put it on something like a coffee table or a nightstand. Obviously you aren't going to stand on it but you can still recalibrate it after your initial calibration. 3) Finally, here's one directly from ShredGame.com:
It's possible that walls, people, or other entities are triggering the IR sensors on the sides of the board. To prevent this issue, make sure that there are four feet of free space on all sides whenever playing and that there are no large metal objects nearby. Return to the main menu and select "Options", then select "Calibrate Board" and follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure to follow the steps exactly and hold the board in the calibrating positions for the amount of the time the video that is play is telling you.
During the initial IR sensor calibration process ensure that you are standing away from the board and that you are motionless. When it is time to calibrate each individual IR sensor you will then be asked to stand on the board and will be shown some positions on the board to hold. Ensure that your entire foot is covering the lens of the particular IR sensor you are instructed to cover. Also ensure the board is facing the right direction. The buttons on the board should be on the left side of the board. Cover the whole sensor for the full count. Tony Hawk will say "Got it" when the timer is finishing. Continue to hold that board position until the button prompt to continue appears. Stepping off of the board before that will cause an error even after Tony Hawk says "Got it". You do not need to press a button to continue to move on to the next step. The calibration video will move on to the next step on its own.
If you still have issues with the calibration then try lowering the lights in the room. Sometimes bright lights can interfere with the IR sensors.
If trying the above does not resolve the issue then please contact the Activision customer service warranty website.
Try leaving a 4ft space open around the board, preferably 8-10 feet away from sensors! I had this same problem and after googling it, seems others have to. I waited till it was dark, turned off all the lights but the light from the tv and it calibrated first try! Maybe this will work for u..the sensors on the wii are really sensitive to lighting so if this doesn't work try providing ample light around the board instead! Gl hope u get it calibrated!
I had the same problem. I solved it and got the board to calibrate immediately when I replaced the brand new batteries with used batteries. Brand new batteries apparently make the lasers very sensitive. You have less sensitive sensors with the used batteries. I just took some AA's out of my cable remotes. The game is awesome once you get it calibrated. I felt your pain for an hour or so.
IT TOOK 1.5 HOURS TO SYNC UP AND CALIBRATE A NEW TONY HAWK RIDE SKATE BOARD WITH A Wii. THE ON-LINE DIRECTIONS AND TROUBLESHOOTING = SUX!. PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS IF YOUR HAVING THE SAME ISSUE: 1) Remove skateboard battery's for 1 minute 2) Reinstall 4 new/fully charged AA Battery's in the Tony Hawk RIDE Skateboard. 3) Plug the Tony Hawk Wireless USB Dongle into the "upper" WII USB Port, Turn on the WII, Insert the Tony Hawk Ride game disk Keep pressing A on the WII Controller till you get to the Error Screen saying: *Unable to SYNC up the skateboard with the WII* 4) Make sure the WII and the plugged in wireless USB Dongle are laying on the floor in front of the wireless skateboard "sideways" with the wireless dongle towards the right side of the WII. 5) The directions state to 1st press the wireless USB dongle reset/Sync button, then the so called Start button on the board, which did not work 100 different times. 6) Instead (on the side of the board) all 4 of the blue LED lights were on. Now press and hold the button which is the Start/Home/blue little house/C- looking Button on the side of the board for 5 seconds. The Blue LED lights should now all be off! 7) Now press the WII Wireless USB Dongle reset/Sync button. 8) After the Dongle sync
are you trying to play via wireless internet? if so you might not be getting a strong signal. if possible buy a ethernet to usb adabter for the wii. you can get them at bestbuy or anyother major electronic store. but you usually cant find them at walmart. this will guarantee a strong internet conection
Try using the guitar from the main page on to navigate through the menus (ie: using the red/blue/green/yellow buttons to select, etc). If you use the Wiimote, it will think you are using vocals, thus requiring a mic.
Rock Band and Guitar Hero instruments are NOT compatible on the Wii.
They are compatible on the 360, the PS3, and the RB drums for PS2.

all of the aspiring musicians on the Wii. Sorry.
