In wii Boom Blox, the cursor with the remote has become reversed
My daughter got wii boomblox for christmas & we played it twice on the third time the wii remote cursor image showed up as inverted. The finger was pointing down not up, when the remote was moved left, it went right on the screen, and moving it right resulted in movement on the screen to the left; the up and down movements of the remoyte also resulted in the opposite screen action. This only occurs with the primary remote, I re-synced the remote, but this had no effect. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Bob P.

When you get to the wii menu, with the icons. On the lower left hand corner, youll see an icon where you can access settings. Click on this, from there go to the option that says "Sensor Bar" If its not on the first row, Just select the arrows opposite each other on the sides of the screen. From there you can diagnose your problems.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Make sure your Wii remote is obstruction and contamination free. If you're using the jacket, make sure it is securely in place on the Wii remote.
If these are not the problem, try a new set of batteries. Weak batteries often cause this problem.
If this also doesn't work, take the batteries out of the Wii remote, and wait for 1 full minute before reinserting them. Then wait a few seconds before pressing any buttons.
If none of these problems work, visit support.nintendo.com or call 1-800-255-3700 for assistance.
Don't have a fix for you, but I will tell you we're going through the same thing. It's really sucking the joy out of the game for us. We just quit playing because it's more frustrating than fun. Tried Nintendo's 800 number, but they were "currentlly experiencing a high call volume" and I was told by an automated voice to call again some other time. Really don't know what the fix would be, seeing as how I feel like we've done everything possible to solve it - just as you said. Please post here if you find a fix!
press the house button on the wii remote then you should see something that says reconnect click on that then as it tells you to press the 1 and 2 button at the same time as you press the button press and hold it on both controllers then when its done exit out of the home button then your all set to play!
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.
You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
Cursor not appearing Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make
sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading
the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game
to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the
cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the
Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii
Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii
Remote designated as "Player
1" to function.
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.
Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then
opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button
to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii
Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength.
Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1)
or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting,
if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate.

Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly

Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires
or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly,
by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side
through the Wii Channel screens.

not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click
