You can solve the cursor from going crazy by turning out a few lights. If you have pictures in the room that have glass covering them the lights reflect off them and create havoc for the sensor bar. Maybe pull a few curtains shut too. It maybe only one light that is doing it so turn one off and see what happens. If that doesn't work turn out another until you find the culprit.

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!

Wii curser or pointer jumps around


There are a few conditions that you need to check:

  • Batteries fully charged or at full power
  • Wii remote is aligned properly.
If the batteries are dying, that might be a cause of the jumpiness because it'll have trouble maintaining a signal lock with the sensor.

Make sure you have the sensor in the right place (above or below the TV as you specify in the settings).

Make sure you have the Wii remote sensitivity settings correct too. All of these things are in the settings menu.

Curser not on screen


Check the batterys in your wii remote and/or if the sensor bar is connected correctly and in front of the tv, also try moving closer to the sensor bar, a distance of 1-5 metres is a good distance

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

The wire of the nintendo wii sensor is riped


well that basicle means that you cant play your wii because your wii motes cant register to the wii. wii sensor bars are pretty cheap and if you dont want the hassle of wires everywhere then you can just get a wireless sensor bars that are pretty pricy but not too bad. the downside of a wireless sensor bar is that the connection isnt that great and it drains battery life life CRAZY.

My curser (Pointer)flickers


The battery could be dying, but since it works fine during the game, I am not sure.

It could be infrared interference from sunlight or other source.

Also different games seem to have different ways of handling input from the Wii remote.
