Replace the batteries and go the the Wii options and set the sensitivity again (when it asks you if you see two blinking dots) as well as the center of the screen. Turn off the Wii (to red light, not yellow standby) and make sure you are directly in front of the TV. Repeat this process several times. (minus battery changes) and it has been working perfectly since.

You can also "spank" your wii mote, turn it over in one hand so the battery back is up toward the ceiling, and strike it hard on top of the battery back with palm of your other hand, for some reason this has worked for many people, either causing something inside to reset or "unstick" itself.

    My wii control has new batteries but it does not seem to function

    Make sure that you are resyncing the controller to the wii. The red button on the front is the sync button, and then there is one in the battery compartment. You will need to power on the system and press both of these sync buttons (red buttons) on the controller and then the system, or vice versa. Good luck.

    I cannot get the hand to point to start the Wii Fit

    have you moved the sensor, if you move the sensor from above the tv to below (or vice versa) you have to change the settings on the wii.

    go to wii options, wii settings, go right then go to sensor bar.

    Obviously you will have to move the sensor bar before doing this to make it possible to do this (if its below the tv put it above the tv) then change the settings then move sensor again.

    Or you could just move the sensor.

    Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing: So right hand holds wiimote, left hand holds nunchuk. Right hand punches register every time. Left hand puncheshardly register ever. I don't think it's my coordination; I'm giving it...

    I had the same problem until I realized I was holding the nunchuk "backward." Or rather, upside down. With your palm facing down toward the floor, the nunchuk should curve upward, and the center button that sticks up should be facing to where your thumb can rest on it. I had mine the other way, with my thumb on the "trigger" and nothing was registering. So, play with the positioning of the nunchuk in your hand.
