    Cursor not appearing
    Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
  • Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the steps below.

  • Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii Remote designated as "Player 1" to function.

  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.

  • Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength. Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1) or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting, if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate. For guidelines on using batteries, please click here. If after inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs flash, then your Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

  • Is the Wii Remote properly synced?
    Press the POWER button on the Wii Remote to see if the Wii console powers on.
    • If it does, the Wii Remote is synced with the system. Please skip to the next section.
    • If the power doesn't come on, power on the system manually and try syncing the Wii Remote.
      • If the Wii Remote will not sync, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
      • If the Wii Remote will sync and the cursor still does not appear, try another Wii Remote if possible.
        • If at least one Wii Remote is working, there is likely a problem with the first Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
        • If you have only one Wii Remote, or none that are working, please continue troubleshooting.

  • Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
  • Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
  • Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly, by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side through the Wii Channel screens.
    • If you are able to scroll with the "+" and "-" buttons, but the cursor is not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for additional Sensor Bar information.
    • If there is no response, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.

My wii remote wont read at all. The menue is there but the remote wont show. It has new batteries. and works on a friends wii..do you know how to fix this..rebelheart37@yahoo.com

Posted on Apr 10, 2009

Ever since I bought the Wii, its all a headache. I must have effectively played only one day's worth of game. The button's work, but with no cursor. Can't enter the Wii menu without the cursor (thought could change the sensitivity of the bar). Changed batteries, synced, tapped the remote, no infra red sources, moved the remote and still no cursor. Changed the sensor bar even. It is a very unreliable video. Regret not going in for an X box.

My Electronic crossword puzzles by RadioShack comes on but will not do anything. I just put in new batteries. I do not have my manual.


Adjusting The Display

To increase or decrease the display's contrast so it is easier to read,
hold down FUNCTION, then press /\ or \/ on the cursor pad.

Playing The Game

1. Press ON/OFF to turn on the game.

If you have not worked a puzzle since installing or replacing the
batteries, CROSSWORD MASTER appears. Otherwise, the display is as it
was when the game was turned off.

2. To start a new puzzle at any time, press FUNCTION and 1 (I), 2 (O), or
3 (P) at the same time. 1 is for beginner-type games, and 2 and 3
increase in difficulty. NEW GAME LEVEL 1, 2, OR 3 Y/N appears.

3. Press Y to start a new puzzle. A crossword grid with flashing cursor
appears (O).

Otherwise, press N. The display appears as it was when you pressed
FUNCTION and 1, 2, or 3.

4. Press (or hold down) /\, \/, <, or > on the cursor pad to move the
cursor around the puzzle.

5. With the flashing cursor in the desired location, press ? to see the
clue(s) for the word(s) in that location.

Any letters you already entered appear, along with a dash for each
missing letter. The number of letters appears in parentheses - for
example, (5) for a solution with 5 letters. If the solution includes
more than one word, the number of letters for each word appears in the
format - for example, (5, 3, 4) for a solution with three words.

If the flashing cursor appears at the junction of two words (across
and down), both clues appear, across first, then down.

6. Press ? again to return to the crossword display, then use the letter
keys to type your answer.

If the flashing cursor was at the junction of two words and you enter
the first letter of your answer, two small arrows appear in the
adjacent across and down squares. Before typing the rest of your
answer, press > or \/ (across or down) on the cursor pad to indicate
which word you are entering.

Press /\ on the keyboard to erase the letter just above, and < to
erase the letter to the left of, the flashing cursor.

To erase a word, hold down FUNCTION and press WORD DELETE (Z).

To spell check the puzzle at any time, hold down FUNCTION and press
SPELL (T). The [+] symbol indicates the location of each incorrect
letter.

When you complete a crossword correctly, GAME COMPLETED appears.

7. Press ON/OFF to turn off the game. The current puzzle is saved.

Screen wont go on but mouse cursor is present


If your cursor is present, you screen is "on". I'm assuming that you have a version of Windows. Most likely, something is not loading properly. Load your computer in to safe mode by starting it and pressing F8 a lot. A menu will appear, select Safe Mode. If you computer boots correctly and everything works, you need to update your video drivers. If not, take your computer in to a shop for repair or ask an expert friend, as there are too many steps to explain over the internet. I hope this helps!

My control is weird, when im goin to choose in the menu cursor doesnt appears


The very first thing you'll want to check is that the sensor bar didn't come unplugged. Also, if you've got a wireless sensor bar for travel, make sure it isn't causing any interference. If those steps don't solve the problem and you have a second controller, try it out, and if it does work, you've got a sensor issue inside your controller.
