Have you tried Changing the battery or moving any objects which could be obstructing the path of the remote to the sensor bar. Or maybe try playing from a different positions, these are a few things you could try, sorry if they dont work.

My wii remote will not move the players on the tv. I change the batteries but it still will not move players.

1. This could be a problem with your sensor. Try to re-calibrate your Wii under Wii settings. If will ask you to selected which position your sensor is in then basically do the rest for you.

2. If you have two Wiis in the same household it could be syncing to the other Wii. Open up the front lil flap on the Wii and find the "Red" Sync button, press it. Then press the "Red" sync button on the back of your Wiimote. The sync button is located under the battery cover right next to the batteries, on your Wiimote

I can see the WII menu and scroll but it will not let me select anything, not even settings

Recalibrating your Wii remote should take care of the issue. Just follow these steps:

1) Remove the battery cover on the remote.

2) Press the red button.

3) Flip down the SD card cover.

4) Press the red button there.

5) Wait until you see a message on the screen letting you know that the remote has been successfully calibrated.

If this procedure does not resolve your issue then you may want to try and re-orient your sensor bar. If there is anything in the room or nearby that is interfering with your signal moving the sensor bar will help to overcome the interference. Also make sure that the batteries in your remote are good. Underpowered signals from the remote can also cause the issue that you are trying to resolve.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

1- Try to press home button ,if it loads u can sync the remote from there.
2- Try to re-sync your remotes by pressing both sync (from remote and wii at same time) in the game.
3- You can get a new remote and see if it works during playing . If it does your previous remote isn't working properly, but if it doesn't there is a problem in either the game or wii (bluetooth module)

Yea when im playing my wii when its like a shooting game i am aming the wii remote right at the sensor bar but it keeps moving and their is nothing blocking the sensor. please help me

This is pretty common, the sensor bar is horrible inaccurate. Try going into your wii settings menu (the wii button on the main menu, then wii settings). Under here you will have a sensor bar option. You can reposition it in the menu there, it has some adjustments as well. Unfortunately it's almost never accurate, which is quite sad, and frustrating when you need to be accurate.

Hope this helps, give that menu a try.

Hand icon wont appear on the Wii main menu

Well, mabey your sensor bar settings are out of wack. You might have your sensor bar set to above TV but you actualy have it below. To fix it, I would move the sensor bar to the opposite position, go into settings and chanage the sensor bar settings to the way you want. then put the sensor bar back where you want it.

We cannot get the Rock Band Guitar to sync up

Try going to the Wii menu and reconnecting the main remote. You'll be asked to simultaneously press No# 1 & 2 to reconnect the main remote. You can then press No# 1 & 2 on the second remote so that the console reads two remotes. Now you can go to the Guitar Hero software and join the band.
Hope this helps -- it worked for us!
