There can be a few causes for this problem

1. Make sure that the remote controller has good batterys and they are correctly inserted

2. Try resynching the remotes as per your consoles instructions.

3. Make sure there is no light shining on the sensor bar as direct sunlight is known to cause this problem to occur.
4. Go into the Sensor Bar Sensitivity Settings and try both increasing and decreasing the sensitivity of the remote controller settings.

5. Disconnect the console completely from the mains and remove main power lead if possible from back of console. Remove batteries from controllers. Power up again - reinsert batteries and resynch controllers.

If these remedies all fail - supect fault in Sensor Bar itself - unit will require service repair.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

I have a Dell Studio Laptop. I have to move the curser at the right hand corner to scroll the page?

Find your way into control panel and check mouse settings I believe the middle mouse button is adjusted there. The details are different with each brand of mouse but this should point you in the right direction.

My curser moves by itself and I cant control it most the time. have tried everything to get it to stop, external mouse does the same thing

most likely a failing touchpad or point stick, see if you can disable them in the bios. if the issue goes away, then replace the palmrest and/or Keyboard

My controller only works part time. The hand icon on the screen jumps around and I have no control over it. I have re synced many times and this does not help. What next?

This problem can be caused by a number of things.
* Try replacing your battry's. * Unplug the sensor on top off your screen and plug it back in. * Make sure the sensor on top off your screen in balanced properly. * Make sure your sensor is not too far away from your controll.
Any further problems please feel free to contact me.

The Wii will power up, but can't get the handheld controller to respond. The home page comes up after several attempts at puching the A button. The little hand does not appear on the sceen, therefore, I...

This may not solve the problem, but if you are too close or too far away from the sensor bar you may overshoot the direction you are pointing the Wii-mote by accident. Also your sensor bar settings may have gotten messed up somehow, so check if you move the sensor bar to the other position (if you have it above the TV move it below or visa versa) and see if that helps. If you can get the hand to point at the screen long enough, check your sensor bar settings.

Pokemon Battle REvolution rental can't start the game

it could be simply that the remotes are not turned on.or it could be that they are not pointing it at the motion sensor or they are standing too close.
I would advise to stand atleast 5 feet away from the screen
note that the blue pokeball is the wii remote pointer

Erratic curser, jumping

Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.

Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal
