Question about Nintendo Wii Console

The pointer hand is not showing on the tv screen

The hand only shows up on the screen when I turn the unit on and select a game. after that it is gone and i have to use the buttons on the remote to select what i want. I tried re syncing the remote, changing the batteries and adjusting the sensitivity but nothing has worked. as a matter of fact i can't get the two separate dots to show on the sensitivity screen at all.

How do you get the hand to appear?

I assume you mean the pointer hand? This will show when a remote is activated by pressing the "A" button.

Sounds like your Av Cable from the unit to your tv is try getting a replacement and see if that works...if not it could be your tv or the connector on the unit itself could be faulty but try that first!.

The pointer or "hands" dont work properly

If the pointers don't show up it is a strong indicator that the sensor bar isn't working or connected properly.
I don't think that it has anything to do with internet access but your wireless router should work fine as long as you have a USB wireless access card and then go into your settings and connect the devices, which is an easy process.

Wii remote cursor not showing on screen

My only idea is to check the batteries in the sensor bar. Placement of the bar (above or below the TV) never had an impact on the cursor in my experience.

Hand does not show up on menu

The main unit is not receiving the signal from the remote,
It can be a couple of things...

More than likely you have two remote handhelds. You may be using the wrong handheld to choose the options. Try the 2nd handheld.

Check to make sure the batteries are charged and handheld is ON

Make sure the receiver is in plain sight and not blocked

Playstation 3 wont read game discs right

Your display settings might not be correct. go to settings then display.

If your using HDMI and your tv only accepts 1080i output then select custom and select this. But it sounds like your tv is only 720p so select that one.

if not then your laser has gone.

Hope this helps
