My wii was working fine with the original handset that came with it.
For whatever reason I have managed to lose that handset and aquire a different one in its place.
This handset flashes etc but will not connect to the console.
Have asked several people what the deal is but nothing is working.
I've tried pressing the sync button on the console first and then the handset but no joy.
Am I trying to correct this problem using the wrong procedure?

Press a button on the Wii Remote, and if the lights blink, but don't stay on, then it might have a problem connecting to your Wii and you may have to re-sync it. If the lights do not come on at all, try changing the batteries to a completely new pair. If the lights still do not come on, part of the Wii Remote may be damaged and you may just have to use a different one.
Original games should work unless you are trying to play a game from a different region, for example playing a PAL game on a NTSC console, check on pro evolution soccer to see what it states then check your wii sports and see what region its from make sure they are both the same. Otherwise the pro evolution soccer could be counterfeit.
1. Your sensor bar is no good, can you get the pointer icon on the wii's main menu to work properly? To fix this you'll need to contact Nintendo and get a new sensor bar or buy one of the third party ones, Nintendo should help you out though.
2. The accelerometer in the wii is stuck, which does happen from time to time. To fix this turn the Wii remote so the buttons face towards the floor and slap the back of the remote firmly(not too hard!) with the palm of your hand. It should work if that is the problem.
3. The accelerometer is broken or otherwise rendered useless. To fix this you'll have to contact Nintendo.
To get a hold of Nintendo 1-800-255-3700 they're very friendly and it never takes very long(I got helped in 5 minutes the day after Wii was released.) Best of all, Nintendo doesn't outsource!
