Hold the Wii Remote upside-down with the buttons facing downward.
Tap the remote firmly against the palm of your hand three times to remove any dust sitting between the buttons and the electronic circuit board inside the remote.
Turn the remote upright and press one of the buttons. If the problem continues, Open your Wii Remote's battery door
Check that your Wii Remote contains two new "AA" batteries or a charged battery pack. Check that no corrosion is present on the battery's metal elements/connectors.
Use a cotton swab to clean the remote's battery element/connectors if corrosion is present.
Check that the Sensor Bar cable is inserted firmly into the back of your Wii gaming system. The Sensor Bar needs to be centered above or below your television so the Wii Remote can transmit signals to the gaming system.
Stand three feet away from the Wii gaming system/Sensor Bar.
Aim the remote and press any button to test the device.
If the remote is not working, stand five to 10 feet away from the gaming system and try the device. The Wii Remote works best three to 10 feet away from the gaming system/Sensor Bar.
Move any objects blocking the signal from the remote to the gaming system/Sensor bar--candles, other remote controls (TV/cable box) and wireless computer devices/cellular phones.
Also, if any sunlight is coming in through a window, close the curtains or blinds to keep the light from interfering with the remote's signal.
Turn off and unplug your Wii gaming system. Leave the unit unplugged for one minute. Plug the gaming system back in.
If the remote still aint working;
Turn the Wii system on. Press and hold the red "SYNC" button for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen appears on your television. The "SYNC" button is behind the small door on the front of your Wii unit.
Release the "SYNC" button. Remove the battery cover and batteries/battery pack from the back of your Wii Remote.
Press and release the red button located under the battery compartment. The blue lights on the front of the remote will blink
Press and release the "SYNC" button on the front of your Wii gaming system. The "Player" light on the gaming system stops blinking and stays on, the resetting process is complete
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.
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.
Ah I see, well since wiiplay lacks any form of calibration in the game and the wii itself does as well. I don't think there's anything you can do to really help in that matter. The Wii pointer is only a general point without some form of calibration.
The closest you can get would be to assure that the consoles sensor bar is set up exactly as the console is told(I.E. if you set it to top it's above the tv) I realise it is frustrating but most recent shooting games(mid 2007+) have some form of calibration, I can't say all because it's difficult to own them all.
I'm sad to report, the only way you'll get calibration would be the Links Crossbow Training and other games like House of the Dead 2&3 but the latter has violence.
Having said that, I think any game is compatible with the wii zapper case as long as the B button is exposed and the numchucks buttons are able to be pressed. However in most cases the zapper is quite superfluous adding only a feel and no real advantage in the game itself.
if you are in the mulitplayer mode and still have trouble adding the remote then try syncing the remote with the wii first by pressing the home button then go into the wii remote settings on the bottom then re-sync each control. Then try going back into mulitplayer mode and try again or while the screen is on when you want to add more players press the '+' button.
Under the battery cover on the remotes and under the panel on the front of the Wii are sync buttons. If you press one and then the other (I forget the order) it will connect the remote to the Wii. FYI: The sensor bar only affects the pointer function of the remotes.
