Buy a new sensor bar. None of my 5 Wii remotes had a cursor on screen so I bought a new sensor bar and it worked fine.

Cannot get cursor on screen , replaced sensor bar , but no joy ??

Does your Wii connect with your wii-remote(1 blue light on and not blinking)? If not try re-sync the wii-remote:

Syncing your Wii-mote to your Nintendo Wii

So you just bought a new Nintendo Wii Remote Controller but when you click the power button the four blue lights at the bottom just blink huh? Well that just means your Remote needs to be synchronized to your Wii.

Here are simple step by step instructions to do so.

1) Turn on your Nintendo Wii.
2) Open the door on the front of your Wii covering the SD card slot and the SYNC button.
3) Open the battery compartment on the back of your Wii-Remote Controller.
4) Press the red SYNC button on your Wii.
5) Press the little red SYNC button on your Wii-Mote.
6) Wait until a solid blue LED light comes on on one of the four lights at the bottom.
7) If it doesn't work the first time, try again.
Your Wii-Mote should now be synchronized.

My Wii is not working. It will come on but the remote will not sync with the console (the hand does not appear on the scree). We purchased a new remote but it still is not working. We pushed the red...

You will have to update the wii to play newer games. Your controller problem if it does show a led light on the remote then its synced. If its just not showing you a hand on the screen then its probably your sensor bar. If your controller will not sync and all four leds flash then I would push the button on the console and push the button the remote then just try hitting the a or b buttons. I've also had to slap the remote after hitting the sync buttons to get it to sync. The update thing is normal though.

Wii powers start up screen press a to continue wii controllers/wii does nothing..batteries are all new in controllers..

Are your controllers sync'd with the Wii? In another words, on the bottom of the Wii Controllers are 4 blue lights. Is one of those four lights illuminated? If not, it will not know that you're pressing it -- you will have to sync the wii remotes.

The wii remote is not linking with the tv so cant use it

You probably need to synchronize your Wii-Motes to your system. When you press buttons on your controllers do the four LED lights flash at the bottom? This is a clear indication. Your Wii needs to be turned on. You need to open the little door on the front of your Wii where the SD card slot is. Under the slot there is a little red SYNC button. Then open the battery compartment on the backs of your remotes. There is another little red SYNC button here. Press the button on the remotes and then while they're flashing on the Wii and it should sync. If it doesn't work the first time try again. Good luck!

My wii remotes wont pick up signal blue lights flash then just go back out again

Hi, check the batter level and then try re-synching the remote's.

Here's instructions for both:

f4bc8924da.gif A fresh set of alkaline batteries should last, depending on amount and type of use, up to 35 hours. This can vary greatly based on certain factors, such as Wii Remote Speaker Volume, Rumble, battery quality and age, and type of game being played.

Important Note: If you are using rechargeable batteries, the only type of battery recommended are Nickel Metal Hydride batteries. When it comes to using rechargeable batteries, you must follow manufacturer guidelines for safety and proper usage. Failure to do so could cause damage to the Wii Remote and void the warranty.

There are two ways to check the Wii Remote's battery levels:

  • Remove the battery cover and press the Red "Sync" button. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength, with one light flashing indicating the lowest level.



  • Use the HOME Menu to check battery level of each Wii Remote:

    1. Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.

    2. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Menu.

    3. The battery level of all synced Wii Remotes is displayed along the bottom. Four bars indicates a full charge, with one being the lowest charge.


55851daefd.gif Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote.

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED will blink.
  3. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).

This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

I hope this helps

Wii Remotes

Could it be an issue with your sensor bar on top of the TV? That could explain why you'd be having the issue with more than one remote all of a sudden.

Cursor does not appear

exchange it

    Cursor not appearing
    Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
  • Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the steps below.

  • Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii Remote designated as "Player 1" to function.

  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.

  • Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength. Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1) or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting, if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate. For guidelines on using batteries, please click here. If after inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs flash, then your Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

  • Is the Wii Remote properly synced?
    Press the POWER button on the Wii Remote to see if the Wii console powers on.
    • If it does, the Wii Remote is synced with the system. Please skip to the next section.
    • If the power doesn't come on, power on the system manually and try syncing the Wii Remote.
      • If the Wii Remote will not sync, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
      • If the Wii Remote will sync and the cursor still does not appear, try another Wii Remote if possible.
        • If at least one Wii Remote is working, there is likely a problem with the first Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
        • If you have only one Wii Remote, or none that are working, please continue troubleshooting.

  • Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
  • Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
  • Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly, by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side through the Wii Channel screens.
    • If you are able to scroll with the "+" and "-" buttons, but the cursor is not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for additional Sensor Bar information.
    • If there is no response, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
