My WII remote, which worked for two weeks, will not sink for me. Its almost like the sending light has stoped working. I get all the blinks but have no action. Should i be taking this back or is there a reset i can do. Before you tell me all the power disconnect stuff, we have done it all ten times over. I am looking for more of an advanced cure. Thanks for your time.

Re: WII remote lights up but wiil not sink
Hi, Sounds like you need to check the sensor bar. Make sure it is
plugged in or if you have a remote sensor bar check it's batteries. If
this doesn't work you can clear the console
sync info by turning off the console power, unplug the console for a
few seconds, plug it back in and turn the power back on. When you get
the Health and Safety screen, press and hold the console synchro button
for 15 seconds. (the syncro but is the red button located in the little door on the front of the unit) Now resync your wimotes by using the red buttons in the
remote battery area and on the console rather than the screen sync. If you need more help
let me know as there are other things like a stuck button on a
controller to look for. Oh and by the way the blue lites on the remote indicate which player is 1, 2, 3, or 4 and they have to match the player who is up and the number one player is the master controller. Good luck!

On the front of your Wii console there should be a 'sync' button. Also on your wii remote on the back there will be a small circle button. Press the sync button on your wii console then press the red button on your wii remote. (Under the button it says sync so you will know what button it is) This worked for me, I hope it works for you :)
on the wiil system tere is a small red sycronize button. press this button. then a screen will appeard indicating for you to properly sync your will remotes. press 1 and 2 simotaniously then they will work properly
Hey Jack, How many remotes are you able to connect at a time? If you have multiple remotes try turning the ones you know that work off, and putting them in another room(so you know they will not try to connect). Then try connecting with the bad one. If that doesn't work you might have to sync the remote: hold down the red sync button on the wii, located next to the sd card slot, while holding down the red button on the remote, located under the battery cover on the back. Now try connecting. If it still doesn't work, the LED lights in the sensor bar might have burned out, this happens a lot when you keep your sensor bar directly on your tv without the stand(the tv gets hot and burns out the lights), a lot of people do this because the stand looks bad. Go buy a new sensor bar, they sell them at wal-mart for $20, plus they're wireless, so you don't have to worry about that thin little wire popping. Test the new wii bar, if it's still not working, then you're remote is just worthy of getting returned.
hope this helps!
Hey, maybe your Wii is not sensing the remotes movement if there is too much light in the room. Try to sinc the remote to the console and then go to the options and check the sensitivity and adjust if necessary.
Do the LEDs light up when you press the buttons on the Wii Remote? Try simply turning off the console, and pressing the power button a couple times firmly on the Wii Remote. If it turns on the Wii, the connection should be established. If it doesn't turn on the Wii, some hardware is defective. Recommend calling Nintendo Support if this happens.
