Make sure that your sensor bar is straight, and not on an angle. You may have to contact Nintendo if this problem occurs.

SOURCE: The cursor jumps around the screen

Reposition your Wii so when you play you aren't pointing the controller toward a bright light (like a window or lamp). Bright lights freak out the controller. I have a huge window in the room with the Wii, and I have to wait until mid morning on sunny days or it's almost impossible to control.

SOURCE: Wii not picking up signal from wii remotes

are you having this problem at the wii menu or during game or the hbc?

some games only allow for a certain amount of wiimotes to connect to the system (usually 1 or 2)

if it has a problem with the hbc (HOMEBREW CHANNEL) then some programs only allow gamecube controllers to work.

How to connect you Wii to your TV, Out of the Box.


After getting everything out of the box, decide on where you want to put your Wii. It should be near your TV and near an electrical outlet. You can either lay the Wii flat or sit it on its side. If you’re laying it flat, move on to step 2, Connect the Cables. If you want to place the Wii in a vertical position you should use the Wii Console stand, which is the gray base unit. Attach the console plate to the bottom of the stand, put it on your shelf and then place the Wii on it so the beveled edge of the console aligns with the beveled edge of the stand.
There are three cables that connect to the Wii: the AC Adapter (a.k.a. power cord); the A/V connector (which has three colored plugs on one end); and the Sensor Bar. The plug of each is distinctly shaped, so each cable plug will only fit in one port in the back of the Wii. (The two small, same-sized ports are for USB devices – ignore them for now). Plug the AC Adapter into the largest of the three ports. Plug the Sensor Bar plug into the small red port. Plug the A/V Cable into the remaining port.
To connect your Wii to your television, find the sockets on your TV that, like the A/V Cable, are colored yellow, white and red. The sockets are generally on the back of the TV, although you might also find them on the side or front. You may have more than one set of ports, in which case you can use any of them. Insert each plug into a port of the same color.
The sensor bar can be placed either on top of your TV or right below the screen, and should be centered with the middle of the screen. There are two sticky foam pads on the bottom of the sensor; remove the plastic film covering them and gently press the sensor into place.
Next, simply plug the AC adapter into a wall socket or a power strip. Push the power button on the console. A green light on the power button will appear. The remote comes in a rubber jacket, designed to protect it, which you will have to partially peal off in order to open the battery door. Put in the batteries, close the battery cover and pull the jacket back on. Now push the A button on the remote to make sure it is working (a blue light will appear at the bottom of the remote).
The Wii remote that comes with your Wii is already synced up, meaning your console will communicate properly with the remote. If you have purchased any additional remotes, you’ll have to sync them up yourself. To do this, remove the battery cover from the remote and press and release the red SYNC button inside. Then open the little door in the front of the Wii where you will find another red SYNC button, which you should also press and release. If a blue light goes on at the bottom of the remote then it is synced up. When using the remote, slip the Wii remote wrist strap around your hand first. Sometimes when people are waving their remote around it slips out of their hand and breaks something.
Turn on your TV. Set your TV input for the input channel your Wii is plugged into. This can usually be done through a button on your television remote generally called “tv/video” or “input select.” Read any onscreen text. This will be either a warning, in which case you can press the A button, or a request for information, such as whether the sensor is above or below your TV and what the date is. Point the remote straight at the screen. You will see a cursor similar to the mouse cursor on a computer. The “A” button does the equivalent of a mouse click.
Once you have answered all the questions you are ready to play games. Push a game disc into the disc slot; the illustrated side of the CD should face away from the power button.
The main Wii screen shows a bunch of TV screen-shaped boxes, and clicking on the top left one will take you to the game screen. Click the START button and begin playing.

Volume at max and won't go down


This sounds like a common problem on these TVs. Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

Programed the first wii remote but the arrow (on the game on the television) keeps dissapearing. what do i do now? does this mean the remote is not hooked up correctly?'


Press the home button on the Wii Remote and point at the screen. If the hand does not show up, there might be a problem with your Sensor Bar. Make sure it is plugged in correctly, and the Wii Remote has a clear path to it.
If the hand does show up after pressing the home button, it might be that the game is not meant to show a cursor when you point at the screen.

Can i connect a pc to a wii to view pc screens a my tv


Instructions things you'll need:
  • Wireless router
    • 1 Determine if your Internet connection is compatible with the Wii's online console features. If you are using a dial-up connection you will not be able to connect to the Internet through the Wii console. The best connectivity is with a cable, DSL or fiber-optic connection.
    • 2 Start up your Wii. Go to the main menu. Click on the Wii icon button on the bottom left side of the screen.
    • 3 Select the "Wii Settings" button with a wrench icon. Go to the "Wii System Settings" menu.
    • 4 Click on the arrow on the right side of the screen to scroll to page two of the settings. Click on the "Internet" tab.
    • 5 Select "Connection Settings" from the menu that appears. Your screen should show three connection slots all saying "none" next to them. Select "Connection 1."
    • 6 Choose "Wireless Connection" from the pop-up screen. A new screen will appear that reads "Search for an Access Point," "Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector," and "Manual Setup." The easiest way to set up the Wii online is to select "Search for an Access Point."
    • 7 Wait a moment for your Wii to find an access point. When the words "Choose the access point you want to connect to" appear on your screen, click "OK."
    • 8 Pick your access point. Choose the point that is listed with a green signal strength icon.
    • 9 Save the settings by clicking "OK." Your Wii console will perform a test. A window will pop up asking you to perform a Wii system update.
    • 10 Complete the system update. Read and agree to the "User Agreements." You should be able to view movies, TV shows, websites, news and games from your PC on your TV.

Pokemon Battle REvolution rental can't start the game


it could be simply that the remotes are not turned on.or it could be that they are not pointing it at the motion sensor or they are standing too close.
I would advise to stand atleast 5 feet away from the screen
note that the blue pokeball is the wii remote pointer
