Wii remote not sensing motion

I have been using Wii for past 1.5 years and both my remotes working fine till few weeks back. lately, one of my Wii remote is giving problem. It has its lights on, shows the pointer on the screen, I am able to select menu options by pressing the buttons, BUT it does not detect any motion while playing any of the games. I have tried setting the sensitivity of the sensor bar etc. BTW, my other remote is working absolutely fine so it has to be something to do with this remote.
Has anyone encountered this kind of problem and is there a solution ??

1) Make sure that you see that little blue light on the WiiMote.

2) If you don't, try to sync it to your Wii.Press the red button under the little door on the front of you wii, at the same time press the button on the back of the wiimote.

3) make sure there are good battery's in it.

If that doesn't work go to this link: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp

Hold the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, firmly tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard. Check for proper response. If the problem is not solved, please follow the rest of the instructions on this page. For all Wii Remote issues:
If you are experiencing problems with a new Wii Remote, or are having difficulty with a Wii Remote that was previously working properly, please carefully read and follow the instructions on this page. First, follow these guidelines to ensure you have set up the system properly to have the optimal environment in which to use the Wii Remote:
  • Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen (more info).
  • Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote.
  • The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV.
  • Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii console, and the Wii Remote.
  • Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles, sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves.
  • Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically. Check for wireless devices such as cordless phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices, and move or turn them off.

Still having problems? If the basic guidelines above did not solve your problem, the more specific information below may help.
  • Wii Remote not being recognized by the Wii Console (lights on the Wii Remote flash when you press a button, but then go out) - Most Common:
    Getting the Wii console to recognize (or "sync" with) a Wii Remote, especially one that did not come in the box with your Wii console, may require doing a few additional steps before it can be synced. Additionally, a Wii Remote that was working, but is no longer being recognized (or has "lost its sync") may need to be re-synced. Please use the troubleshooting steps listed below, which our experience has shown can solve many Wii Remote issues.
      Try these steps!
    1. Turn the Wii console power OFF by pressing the POWER Button on the front of the console. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet for a few seconds. After a few seconds have elapsed, plug the cord back into the wall outlet.

    2. Turn the power of the Wii console ON. When you see the Health and Safety screen, open the small flap on the front of the Wii console to find a red button labeled "SYNC." Press and hold the SYNC Button down for 15 seconds. This will clear all the syncs on the Wii, allowing you to get a clean start to begin the process described below.

    3. After holding the SYNC Button on the Wii console down for at least 15 seconds, you can now "re-sync" your Wii Remotes:
      1. With the first Wii Remote you wish to sync, remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote to find a small red button just below the batteries.

      2. Press and release the small red button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the blue lights on the front of the Wii Remote will blink.

      3. Quickly press and release the red SYNC button on the inside of the white flap on the front of the Wii console (picture).

      4. When the Player LED blinking stops and stays lit, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

      5. This sync procedure (steps "a" through "d" above) must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to the system.

    If you are still unable to get the Wii console to recognize your Wii Remote(s) after carefully following the steps above, please call 1-800-255-3700 for further assistance.

    Tilt Problems
    1. Check the motion sensor functionality by holding the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard.
    2. Try placing the Wii Remote in a neutral position by resting it on a flat surface during game play. If the character or cursor still tilts on its own, there is a problem with the Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

Wii Remote Turning Funtion Doesn't Work on Mario Kart


Your wii sensor bar probably went out, replace it. They sell wireless ones at wal-mart for $20. If you want to make absolute sure that the bar is broken, take a video camera and take a quick video of the wii bar while it's connected and the wii is on. If you see four little blue lights on each side then you're wii bar is ok, if any are gone it should be replaced. The fact that all the buttons are still working means that your wii is still communicating with remote using bluetooth, but since it's not sensing any motion, it probably means that the problem is sensor bar related.

Wii doesn't work


Hey mushbean,

If the motion sensor in your Wii remote is not functioning properly, Nintendo has recommended that you try the following:

1) Hold the Wii remote with the button side down.

2) Gently tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times.

3) Check the remote to see if it properly responds to motion.

Should this not solve the problem, you may want to check out the online FAQ and troubleshooting guide developed by Nintendo for all Wii remote issues. The FAQ can be found through the following website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,

Wii freezing up


Hi Ashley,

It sounds like the accelerometer in your Wii Remote is not working properly.

The "point-and-click" stuff like the Wii Menu use the WIi Remote's camera (which is behind the dark part on the front of the Wii Remote). The motion-sensing for swinging, tilting and other motion uses the accelerometer in the Wii Remote.

Wrap your Wii Remote in a towel and give it a whack against your knee (not so hard as to injure your knee) - sometimes the accelerometer part gets "stuck" and needs to be jarred out of position.

If that still doesn't work, then go to Nintendo.com, click Support, and go to the Wii Troubleshooting section for more options.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp

Also, you don't have to use the same remote as #1. The first remote that is activated will become #1.

You can also push the Home button on the Wii Remote, then point to the bottom (where the battery levels are shown), press A, then click on Reconnect. It will tell you to press the 1 and 2 buttons on each remote in the order you want them to appear. Press the 1 and 2 buttons on the remote you want to be #1, wait for the remote to sync (the Wii will make a happy nosie), then do the same for the remote you want to be #2, etc.
