Question about Nintendo Wii Console

1 Answer

Movement my Wii remotes only work for the A and B buttons and the point and move feature. The controller does work for motion games, like bowling. I bought a new controller and a new sensor bar and still no luck. It worked one day and the next it didn't. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Wii remote turns off

It sounds like you either have a low battery, or your motions may be dislodging the batteries on your controller. When the controller is off and you press a button, check to see how many of the four blue lights on the bottom of the controller are flashing. This tells you how much battery power you have: four lights is full, one light is low. If it's saying your battery is full, try taking the battery or batteries out and putting it back in. Good luck!

Unable to bowl or throw with the remote

It's possible your tilt sensors are stuck in the controller. Turn the controller upside down (buttons down) and slap it against the palm of your hand. This is the easiest way to unstick those springs. Good luck!

Wii doesn't work

Hey mushbean,

If the motion sensor in your Wii remote is not functioning properly, Nintendo has recommended that you try the following:

1) Hold the Wii remote with the button side down.

2) Gently tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times.

3) Check the remote to see if it properly responds to motion.

Should this not solve the problem, you may want to check out the online FAQ and troubleshooting guide developed by Nintendo for all Wii remote issues. The FAQ can be found through the following website:

Hope this helps you out.

My wii remote

@ Slivic22
Some games does not use Sensor Bar pointing because they play with motion/accelerometer only. After you select the number of sets on Wii Sports Tennis, there is no Sensor Bar pointing except for Pause menu. That's because you Swing the remote like a racket.

Wii freezing up

Hi Ashley,

It sounds like the accelerometer in your Wii Remote is not working properly.

The "point-and-click" stuff like the Wii Menu use the WIi Remote's camera (which is behind the dark part on the front of the Wii Remote). The motion-sensing for swinging, tilting and other motion uses the accelerometer in the Wii Remote.

Wrap your Wii Remote in a towel and give it a whack against your knee (not so hard as to injure your knee) - sometimes the accelerometer part gets "stuck" and needs to be jarred out of position.

If that still doesn't work, then go to, click Support, and go to the Wii Troubleshooting section for more options.

Also, you don't have to use the same remote as #1. The first remote that is activated will become #1.

You can also push the Home button on the Wii Remote, then point to the bottom (where the battery levels are shown), press A, then click on Reconnect. It will tell you to press the 1 and 2 buttons on each remote in the order you want them to appear. Press the 1 and 2 buttons on the remote you want to be #1, wait for the remote to sync (the Wii will make a happy nosie), then do the same for the remote you want to be #2, etc.
