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.

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!

Console won't eject disc or shut down

Same thing happened to me a while back. First try unplugging the Wii for 30sec-1min. Then plug it back in, turn it on, and then hold the eject button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work try it again with the Wii in a different position. (Horizontal instead of vertical or vice-versa). If that doesn't work it might be a disc drive problem and it might have to be sent to nintendo.
This is their service site. Hope it helps!

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.

Make sure you have inserted the disk the right way. I don't remember exactly which way it goes in, but insert it with the side with the writing on it to the right and vice versa.

Permanent split screen down middle by black line

The GPU has overheated that is what causing this problem.

You will need to stop the heat build up and get it repaired - you can even do this with a good guide or send it in.
