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.

The lock has started to work backwards....the code locks it and the lock button unlocks it. Changed the help.e

Remove the cover. On the right hand side under the batteries you will notice that it says "Door Direction Jumper". If the jumper is located across prongs 1 & 2, move it to prongs 2 & 3, or vice versa. This controls the direction of the operation which makes the lock universal to doors with the hinges to the right or to the left.

    My lock works backwards. Hit the lock and it unlocks, punch the code and it locks

    I'm assuming you are dealing with the Powerbolt, since you didn't mention the model of lock you have. This problem is probably because the "handedness" of the door is set opposite of your installation. That is, you may have what is called a "right-hand door" and the lock is set for a left-hand door, or vice versa. In other words, what side the door hinges are on and which way it therefore swings open.The Kwikset lock has an internal jumper which needs to be moved to another position to change the function.

    Cut and paste this link into your browser, the scroll down to Step 11:

    Step 11 says:

    11. Door handing: I have installed your Powerbolt, but when I push the Lock Button, it unlocks? What should I do?
    First remove the cover on the inside of the Powerbolt unit. On the right hand side under the batteries, you will notice that is says "Door Direction Jumper". If the cap is mounted on Prongs 1 & 2, carefully remove it and move it over so that it mounts Prongs 2 & 3. A is right handed, B is left handed.

    This link will illustrate how to remove the cover to change the jumper:

    Good luck!

    My intec remote is showing the hand upside down and it is also backwards. If I point it right it goes left, point it down it goes up. Any solution other than to take it back and get a new one. Have tried...

    After doing a quick search online seeing if other users have had this problem, it looks like a quick fix suggested straight from Nintendo is to turn your controller upside down and whack it a few times. Supposedly, this fixes the problem, as strange as the solution sounds. You can read what I read by clicking here if you're curious (which I'm sure you are). I know you've mentioned you removed the batteries, but I'm not sure if you meant you swapped the batteries or just reinserted the ones you already had. If you haven't, I'd suggest completely swapping the current batteries for new ones before you try this "fix."

    Our Wii remote hand is not appearing on the screen. We don't know what to do?

    Make sure all devices are connected to the Wii Station correctly and securely. Make sure the batteries in the wii-mote are working and the light is on.
    Trying moving the wii-mote sensor to the top of the TV if its on the bottom or vice versa and try again.
    If none of that works try bringing the wii-mote to a friend who has a console and trying it there, if it doesn't work then there might be something wrong with that wii-mote. If it works then ask someone to bring a wii-mote to your console and try it, if that doesn't work then there might be something wrong with the console or the receiver.
    Good Luck!

    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.

    How do I flip the handles around, or is there a seperate one for right hand and left handed doors.

    There are retaining screws on one side that hold the outside to the inside or vice versa. You will also have to switch latch so that tapered end goes into frame at opposite angle that it is now. Just turn it upside down.
