Re: wii console problem

It could be your batteries or the signal is being lost, do you have alot of electrical stuff near your wii/tv? It might help if you turn everything you can off and change the batteries, if the problem persists you may need to check on your mote and sensor bar as there may be a fault in one of them

Hello i have a wii remote that cannot point in home menu in all games and in some specific games like mario galaxy and metroid generally but the only way to point in home menu and these games is to go very...

You may have to adjust your sensor bar settings.
From your wii home page (the page that loads when you start the system) use your wii mote to select the Wii button (bottom left) then select "Wii Settings"
Push the next arrow push "sensor bar"
Here you can either adjust the position of your sensor bar (top of your tv or bottom) and also calibrate the sensitivity of your wii mote.
hope it helps!
~good luck!

I lost my arrow what can I do thank you

Hi there,

First, check to make sure the lights on your remote are still on. One thing that will help is to replace the batteries. Also, get closer to the sensor bar until you see the arrow. At that point, you can go into the Wii Settings and adjust the sensitivity. Adjust it until you can be far enough away to see the cursor.

My wii remotes are not responding to my wii unless i am within a foot of the receiver anyone know why? and how to fix it, thanks

  1. Access the Wii System Settings
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Sensor Bar " and select "sensitivity"

  • Use the Wii Remote to get the cursor to get the two white dots in the test field.
  • If you see two blinking dots, then the sensitivity is currently set correctlyIf you don't see two blinking dots (they don't have to blink at the same time), adjust the sensitivity with the + and - buttons of the Wii Remote until you see two blinking dots.
  • Select "Confirm" to save the setting.
Please note that the higher the sensitivity setting, the more sensitive the Sensor Bar becomes to sunlight and various light sources. This may impact the operation of the Wii Remote. The initial recommended distance for using the Wii Remote Pointer is 3 to 8 feet from the Sensor Bar.
Seeing more than two dots?
If you see more than two dots on the Sensitivity screen, then the Wii Remote is picking up on additional light sources. Verify that there are no bright light sources, including sunlight, behind or near the TV, shining towards the Wii Remote or reflecting off the TV screen. Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.

Hi there,

If you can't seen the cursor on your TV, the problem is either with the Wii Remote or the Sensor Bar. Try changing the batteries. If you still can't see the cursor, then the problem is with the Sensor Bar. Go into the Wii Settings and adjust the sensitivity of the Sensor Bar, that should solve your problem.

The hand on the screen shakes up and down

usually a sign that the sensor is not picking up the remote as well as it could be.

go into the controller settings and adjusting the sensitivity (not certain of the wording, don't have the wii in front of me.) follow the directions on the screen, and this should help.

also, place the sensor in more of a direct line of sight to where you will be playing the most.
