If you have lights that are around the tv? If you have candles burning around the tv. What type of TV is it? Is the TV gerating to much light? Do you have problems with it if you take it to a different tv? If you do, then it something that is around that tv causing interference.

The remote isn't working


A few things to try:
1) Make sure Batts. are in correctly.
2) check in all around the sides back and under the sound bar for a reset button.
3) Clean the IR emitter on the remote and the receiver on the bar. On the remote it will be a reddish plastic window or a small bulb looking thing on the front. The receiver may be harder to find. I suggest just giving the entire front of the sound bar a good cleaning. I have had remotes stop working because there was to much dust built up on the receiver. I have also found that my kids handled the remote with dirty fingers and had gotten peanut butter on the emitter! Good Luck!

Remote stopped working Got new remote and it


It can be the IR remote receiver board inside the TV. Is the new remote setup for VIZIO TV?
Old VIZIO remote is bad for sure?
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

Wii curser or pointer jumps around


There are a few conditions that you need to check:

  • Batteries fully charged or at full power
  • Wii remote is aligned properly.
If the batteries are dying, that might be a cause of the jumpiness because it'll have trouble maintaining a signal lock with the sensor.

Make sure you have the sensor in the right place (above or below the TV as you specify in the settings).

Make sure you have the Wii remote sensitivity settings correct too. All of these things are in the settings menu.

Hi. when i point the the remote at the tv it doesnt work. but when i point it about 4ft from the tv at the wall it works!! can you help!


Where is your sensor bar? You're supposed to place the sensor bar under [or over] the TV. You must point the Wii Remote at the sensor bar, not at your TV.

We are trying to get the hand to come up on our tv, but we have to point the remote away from the tv to get it to come up.


Here are a few things to try:

  1. Make sure that you are using new batteries. This is the number one cause of Wiimote problems.
  2. Make sure that your sensor bar and wiimote sensore are free of fingerprints, dirt and other obstructions.
  3. Try another wiimote to see if it is the sensor bar, or the wiimote.
  4. Turn the remote upside down. If the pointer on the screen does not flip, then you have a problem with the mothion sensor in your wiimote.

Volume is very low


Use the satellite receiver remote control to adjust the volume first. The receiver itself offers volume control and you probably have that turned down. Then you are trying to raise it with the volume control on the TV. This is raising the TV volume, but there isn't much sound there in the first place. Use the receiver remote, and you will probably see a volume bar. At some point it might say something like "best stereo" or a star might appear. If that happens leave the volume set there, otherwise just raise it all the way. Then control the volume with the TV remote, or program the DirecTV remote for your brand of TV, and the volume button should control the TV then.

We moved our Wii to another location and a new TV and now the remotes point and click is inaccurate and we cannot easily aim at all. I thought it was the bar sensitivity but I think that's fine. Any ideas?


Cursor is off-center, jerky, erratic, disappears, etc.
  • 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. If the Wii Remote Jacket is being used, verify that it's securely in place on the Wii Remote. If the Wii Remote Jacket is askew, it might be partially blocking the infra-red sensor on the front of the Wii Remote.
  • Try a new set of batteries. Occasionally weak batteries can cause this type of behavior.
  • Reset the Wii Remote:
    1. Take the batteries out of the Wii Remote, wait for one (1) minute, and then re-insert them. (How to)
    2. Wait a few seconds before pressing any buttons to wake up the Wii Remote.
    3. Re-sync the Wii Remote by using the steps listed above in the white box titled "Try these steps!".

  • Check the Directional Sensor Functionality by holding the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard.
  • Verify Sensitivity Setting dots:
    Go to the Sensor Bar's sensitivity setting in the Wii menu (click here for directions on accessing this feature).
    • If only one or no dots appear on the sensitivity screen, there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for repair information.
    • If there are more than two dots, then it appears there is an additional light or infrared heat source being picked up by the Wii Remote. 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.
    • If both dots appear and the erratic behavior continues even when you move closer to the TV, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further
