I just had the same problem and the solution is pretty simple.

Step 1: Make sure system is off
Step 2: Unplug system from outlet and leave unplugged for a couple minutes
Step 3: Plug back into outlet and turn on the system
Step 4: Sync them up

Also, a frozen system that is not responding both through the controller and can be fixed simply by unplugging it from the outlet and giving it a couple seconds.

Enjoy

Cannot get curser to show on screen


This could very possibly be an issue with the sensor bar. Try these steps:
  1. First, ensure your sensor bar is plugged into the console and oriented properly! Take a look at this picture to see how it's supposed to be facing (NOTE: you will NOT see the purple lights even if your sensor bar is working!! These are ultraviolet lights and are not detectable to the human eye!) Click here for the picture.
  2. Make sure your Wii remote is on and has new batteries! Older batteries decrease the strength of the light that the Wii remote gives off that it uses to communicate with your sensor bar.
  3. Assuming these things work, consider increasing the sensitivity of your sensor bar. Directions for how to do this have been posted online by Nintendo here.
If none of this works, chances are there's something wrong with your sensor bar, Wii remote, or a combination of both. Replace the sensor bar before replacing anything else. If that doesn't work, get a new Wii remote. Good luck!

My wii wont turn on at all. its plugged in and connected and everything but the light won't come on or won't turn on when i hit the power button.


it sounds like your power adapter has stopped working and needs to be replaced. If you try another adapter and the unit still does not turn on then the power on off switch could have gone bad or there is another problem with the unit and it will need to be sent in to a repair place to be fixed.

When at wii menu I can't click on anything!!!!The curser thing does not show up.I tried all the controllers too,


Have you treid re-synchronising your remotes after resetting console by switching it off and unplugging for 10 seconds. Also make sure there is no light interference onto your motion detction bar.Make sure the connection for this is correct, you may have moved it and disturbed it by accident.

It sounds like the controler is shot. Did someone let go of this controler in the middle of a game?

My wii controllers wont work


you dont have lights on any one of your controllers?
have you tried them with another console or another controller with your console? this way you can find out where the problem lies with either the controllers or the console. to me it sounds like the console is the problem. How long have you had the wii and did the conttrollers ever work?

My controls wont work


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. Now resync your wimotes by using the red buttons in the remote battery area 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. Good luck!

The wii remote curser does not show up on the screen.


Check that the batteries are fully charged and make sure that the top end of the control is clean (no finger prints etc...) and that the bar that sits on your tv is centered correctly and plugged in correctly

Wii control


Try to reconnect your wii-motes, by using the red button on the wii underneath that front flap where you would put the SD card. and then the other red button on the controller where you put the batteries in. and make sure the batteries are fresh

Wii controller not doing anything


I had this same problem. I read somewhere to unplug the Wii for a minute so that when you turn it back on it will have to reload the bluetooth data from the firmware. Worked immediately for me. Hope this helps.
