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.

    Please if possible come back to the question here and rate it 4 thumbs. It looks like the answer helped you, but for some reason it doesn't rate it 4 thumbs unless you come back a second time and specify 4 out of 4 thumbs. I hope you will do this for me. Thanks Tim

I'm trying to play call of duty but when i point at the sensor bar my pointer keep going to the right .


go to your console options and calibrate the sensor bar. increase the output.

the sensor bar is nothing more than IR emmitting LED lights that the remote reads. Too much sun or other IR sources will cause issues.

Hello there

Hold the Wii Remote upside-down with the buttons facing downward.

Tap the remote firmly against the palm of your hand three times to remove any dust sitting between the buttons and the electronic circuit board inside the remote.

Turn the remote upright and press one of the buttons. If the problem continues, Open your Wii Remote's battery door

Check that your Wii Remote contains two new "AA" batteries or a charged battery pack. Check that no corrosion is present on the battery's metal elements/connectors.

Use a cotton swab to clean the remote's battery element/connectors if corrosion is present.

Check that the Sensor Bar cable is inserted firmly into the back of your Wii gaming system. The Sensor Bar needs to be centered above or below your television so the Wii Remote can transmit signals to the gaming system.

Stand three feet away from the Wii gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Aim the remote and press any button to test the device.

If the remote is not working, stand five to 10 feet away from the gaming system and try the device. The Wii Remote works best three to 10 feet away from the gaming system/Sensor Bar.

Move any objects blocking the signal from the remote to the gaming system/Sensor bar--candles, other remote controls (TV/cable box) and wireless computer devices/cellular phones.

Also, if any sunlight is coming in through a window, close the curtains or blinds to keep the light from interfering with the remote's signal.

Turn off and unplug your Wii gaming system. Leave the unit unplugged for one minute. Plug the gaming system back in.

If the remote still aint working;

Turn the Wii system on. Press and hold the red "SYNC" button for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen appears on your television. The "SYNC" button is behind the small door on the front of your Wii unit.

Release the "SYNC" button. Remove the battery cover and batteries/battery pack from the back of your Wii Remote.


Press and release the red button located under the battery compartment. The blue lights on the front of the remote will blink

Press and release the "SYNC" button on the front of your Wii gaming system. The "Player" light on the gaming system stops blinking and stays on, the resetting process is complete

Wii remote cursor not showing on screen


My only idea is to check the batteries in the sensor bar. Placement of the bar (above or below the TV) never had an impact on the cursor in my experience.

Nunchuck wii problem


Most likely not a fault with either. Try not touching the nunchuk while the game is powering up, as moving the joystick while the game is powering up can cause these issues. If the problem is still happening, click the Wii Home button and open the Wii Remote Settings at the bottom of the screen. Choose the option to reconnect the remote, and then try again. If this doesn't work, ai am not really sure what is the issue. You may need to send to NOA for a checkup.

Playing Wii Fit, continually get message:Communications with the wii remote have been interupted press A to reconnect the wii remote. Have changed batteries, help?


try checking the sensor bar connections, moving the sensor bar around to different positions.. higher/lower/left/right/closer/further. also if you have shinny background behind the sensor or sunlight/bright lights these will cause loss of signal. check the bar and remotes for oily film. last thing try a different remote if it does the same thing your sensor bar may need replacing if it doesn't the remote could be defective. hope this helps.

My wii remote


@ Slivic22
Some games does not use Sensor Bar pointing because they play with motion/accelerometer only. After you select the number of sets on Wii Sports Tennis, there is no Sensor Bar pointing except for Pause menu. That's because you Swing the remote like a racket.
