Some times the "hand" comes on the screen to navigate,some times it doesn't. I've done everything i've been told and the controller won't connect. We bought this used,the store said they tested it and it worked. i think it's broken.

Test the batteries. If the battery power is low, the connection weakens.

My wii isn't showing the wii hand on the menu screen or anywhere else so i can't get to anything, so can you please help me.


Make sure the Wii Sensor Bar is correctly plugged into the Wii, and that the Wii Remote has an unobstructed path to the Sensor Bar. Move the Wii Remote around, as the positioning of the Sensor Bar may not be exact. If you've done all of this and the problem persists, it may be that your Wii Sensor Bar is damaged. You may have to buy a new one.

what you need to do is replace batteries in a controller and if it still doesn't work then you need to sync the controller to the wii.

Hi well i have a question about this ps3 move when you buy the bundle set but it does not have the navigation controller in the bundle set as i been told that you need the navigation controller to use...


The navigation controller is only needed for comfort really, all it does is that it navigates through the Cross Media Bar (XMB), which the PlayStation Move Controller cannot do. It is basically like having a controller at hand whilst using a Move-compatible game. But to further answer your question, it is not a need, more like a time saver, as most of the Move games are used with either one or two Move Motion Controllers, and no Navigation Controller.

I can not sync my Controller to my ps3 console. I tried using the USB cord and it will not connect. I purchased a brand new controller and still the same results. What am I missing?


Easy fix! Here's what you do:

Start with everything off, connect your PS3 remote to the cord and plug it into your PS3.

You are going to need something pretty thin, like a pencil lead, toothpick, or something semi-pointy with a decent size tip. I use a paperclip.

Turn your PS3 on by hand, running your finger over the power opening (Don't know the technical term for this hole...) and let it completely boot up

Once your main screen is loaded, press the center PS button on your remote. The 4 red lights will start flashing. Take the pointy end of your (paperclip/toothpick/other pointy object) and insert it into the tiny hole on the top back of the remote, press it in like your pushing an internal button. It should be right behind the 4 red lights - either way - it's the only little hole you have on it. Hold it in for a few seconds.

The controller will process, and if done correctly, will sync with your PS3.

If you have any other problems let me know. Enjoy!

Respectfully,

Don

PS3 hung up during system update...power down and up..says it's looking for system updates, then goes to a second screen related to Linux no longer being supported and hangs there, no response, have...


I had the same issue. You first have to make sure your controller is ON by pressing the PS button. Once you have made sure is connected, you have to use the arrow buttons on the left side of your controller to navigate through the options (select OK, for example). Only these buttons, plus the X and the O ones work during this phase. Hope this helps.

I got a nintendo wii but it comes on but the remote wont connect to the sensor can enyone hel


Hi,

if you take out the batterys in the controller, you,ll see a small button/switch.
use this for the sensor bar, to receive the signal being transmitted from the controller to the sensor.
You may alternatively, have to reset in the settings menu.

Happy Gaming.

Wii remote cursor not working in Wii Menu


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.
