Re: 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.

Make sure to the little blue light on the wii remote is on on the far left. You may have to sync it. Take the battery out of the wii remote and there is red sync button. There is another red sync button under the little flippy door on the front of the wii where the SD card slot is. press both buttons and wait for the wii remote to stop blinking. Then point it directly at the sensor.
Here are instructions from Nintendo on how to fix this issue. It's most likely related to the sensor bar. Good Luck!
If your screen appears
frozen at the Language select screen, we have found that to be related
to the Sensor Bar. Please try the following:
Ensure that the
Sensor Bar cord is plugged snugly to the back of the console, and is
placed properly at the center of your TV screen. For detailed
directions on setting up the Sensor Bar, please click here.
to be sure the Wii Remote is synced to the console, by using the Power
button on the Wii Remote to turn the console on. (The power button is
the small white button with the red symbol in the top-left corner, just
above the Control Pad). If this doesn't work, try to sync the Wii Remote. Once synced, try to turn the power on the console on and check for proper response.
Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV
and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's
operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that
the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup). 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.
you are still experiencing problems after trying the steps above, there
could be a problem with your Sensor Bar. Please read the following:
Sensor Bar has five infrared lights on each side of the bar that the
Wii Remote uses to determine its position. If these lights aren't
working, then the Wii Remote cursor will not display on the screen, and
you won't be able to navigate the setup screens.
To see these lights, you will need a digital camera or cell phone camera with an LCD display.
After making sure the Sensor Bar is plugged in and the power to the
console turned on, direct the camera at the Sensor Bar so that it is
displayed in the LCD
of the camera. If the five infrared lights can be seen on both sides of
the Sensor Bar, the Sensor Bar is working. While the position/angle of
the camera may need to be adjusted slightly, the lights are fairly easy
to see in the LCD display.
Maybe I am not understanding the question, but you normally would use one of the remotes, make sure the receiver bar is either at the top of bottom of the screen and use the remote pointed at the screen to move the cursor around, click on the desired object using the A button on the front of the remote. Remote has to be pointed at the screen for the cursor to move around and any movement you make will move the cursor.
Cursor is off-center, jerky, erratic, disappears, etc.
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. (How to)
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 (click here for directions on accessing this feature).
If only one or no dots appear on the sensitivity screen, there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for repair information.
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. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further
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.
For guidelines on using batteries, please click
inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs

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.
