New Wiimote not synching or being picked up by sensor bar.
O.k. so it turns out that it was just a flip of a light switch that needed to be, well.. flipped. i'm retarded. Anyways. Well, we'd been having problems with the orriginal Wiimote that we had bought when we got our system. Well one solution to some of the Wiimote problems is, just shoot the dang thing. Ten gauge double barrel side by side did nicely. Course this was after one solution listed on here of dunking it in water. Yes, that did solve alot of frustration problems. Back to the real problem. Well yesterday we went to wallmart to get a new Wiimote. It's not synching or, picking up the sensor bar or the sensor bar isn't picking it up. Whatever is going on, we don't know. I'v tried unplugging and re plugging in everything once again. Yes the light switch is flipped this time. Tried new batteries, tried pressing the synch buttont, tried... well, just everything i can think of. I like this sight however so I thought I would see if anyone could think of anything. Maye it is my sensor bar, but I don't know. If it is my sensor bar, I read that you can look through a digital camera and should beable to see blinking lights on the sensor bar. Is this fact? Haven't tried it yet but if it is the case, how many lights should be blinking on my sensor bar? Anyone have a clue?

There is supposed to be a "Confirm" button on the bottom right corner of your screen that you select using your wiimote.
If your wiimote isn't responding, this may be due to your sensor bar not working (or maybe the connection isnt pushed in all the way)
your wii mote may not be synched up right (if you could push "A" on the previous screen this isnt the case"
if you cant see the "Confirm" button you may need to adjust your tv's aspect ratio
hope it helps!
If it is synced, there is probably a problem with your sensor bar. try using a different wiimote. if that fixes it, you probably need to replace the wii-mote. if not, your sensor bar needs replacing. but try unplugging your sensor bar and plugging it back in first, and try standing at different distances from the TV. Hope this helps
First you need to determine if the problem is your Wiimote, or your Wii's sensor bar. You can check to see if your Wiimote is transmitting to the bar by looking at it through a digital camera (this allows you to see the infrared light). Turn everything on and view the tip of the remote through the camera, if it lights up: it's working, if it doesn't: you may need a new wiimote. If it turns out your wiimote is working, then it probably means your sensor bar needs replacement. I think that is more likely (and less expensive)
The sensor bar really isn't a sensor at all. There are just 3 infrared LED lights on each side of the bar (you can see them if you look at them on the screen of a digital camera while the Wii is on). The bar just gives the controllers a reference point as to where the screen is. The controllers actually communicate directly with the console. If the console won't recognize them, make sure there are fresh batteries and then
Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
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
Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment.
When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).
Questions: 1) Is the bar plugged into the console? 2) Did your cat or dog chew through the wire? 3) Have you tried using the setup menu to alter the remote's sensitivity? 4) Is anything interfering with the sensor bar, such as a reflective surface or other lighting in the room? Shiny coffeetable tops and fluorescent lights aren't friendly to the Wiimote. Try covering reflective surfaces and playing with the lights off. 5) If you get a replacement and still have the same problem, then the problem is with the Wiimote.
the problem could be uv light, if its daytime make sure all the blinds are closed no extra lights are on near the sensor bar. if there is a glare on the screen at all it could be reflecting light to the wiimote as well. I've had that problem before myself, if that is not the case try moving closer to the sensor bar, make sure the sensor bar is connected correctly and then go to the system settings menu and calibrate the wii sensor bar and adjust the sensitivity, make sure you are not sitting at a wide angle from the snesor bar either, you can tip the sensor bar left and right in order to allow yourself a wider angle. also avoid using the nyko wireless sensor bar, it has a shorter range than the wired one that somes with the wii, mine came with a wireless on(used) and i just got a wired one and now it works much better. well I hope you find this info at least a little useful.
