Question about Nintendo Wii Console
I own a Wii and one of my controllers seems to be having a problem. The motion sensing works just fine - I can point and click however much I want to, but when playing any game that requires the remote to be swung (i.e. Mario Strikers (for hitting other players), Wii Sports, etc), it doesn't work. It doesn't register that I pull the remote back when I want to wind up for bowling, it doesn't register that I'm swinging/flicking it for baseball and tennis.
I've tried new batteries, I've tried re-syncing it, I've tried reconnecting it, but nothing fixes the problem. Can anyone suggest a fix? Thanks very much!
Try syncing the remote (under the cover on the back of the wii remote where the battery's are there is a circular red button press it then on the front of the wii where you can put your SD card there is a rectangular button press it if that does not work then try doing it the other way around if that does not work keep trying if that does not work i dont know what will

I had the exact same problem. My remote worked on the menu but did not work to swing in baseball or to bowl. I gave it a hard slap on the backside and it seems to be working fine. It was fun also.

Hi there Had the same problem the motion sensor worked fine choosing the game, number of palyers etc but would not work for Wii sports no hitting in baseball and a lopsided boxer!! Found another web page that suggested turning the Wimote over and spanking it. Thought what the heck and tried it - solved the problem working fine and have a very happy child again!!

I was having the same problem. i was so furious i was about to to throw this thing away. my first remote stopped working about a month ago. everything worked except it would not swing in the tennis game. today same thing happened w/ my second remote. so you can say i was pretty pissed. my batteries had full power. i went ahead and reset the whole system and scrubbed the battery connectors w/ a knife to get a better connection. working perfect now.
