Re: Sensor Bar

Well i don't know about australia, but you can easily get sensor bars on the internet (heavy shipping costs?). if that isn't possible try a store that sells games like walmart. along with video games there should be a few accessories on the shelf.

My control for the wii will bring up the menu but the courser that you use to make selections does not appear.

Make sure the sensor bar is correctly plugged into the Wii, and that the Wii Remote has a clear path to the sensor bar. Move the Wii Remote around, as the positioning of the sensor bar may not be precise. If you are sure everything is how it should be, it may be that your sensor bar is damaged and/or broken. You may have to buy a new one.

Do I need another wii sensor bar for each

no, up to four wii remotes work on 1 sensor bar, but only 1 sensor bar can be used at a time

any sensor bars that you buy at the store useally work up to greater distances than the one that came with the wii

Remotes not picking up anything

I would suggest replacing the senor bar, it is not that uncommon that one the the Infrared LED's in the sensor bar to have burned out or go bad.

I personally use the wireless sensor bar after my original senor bar went bad

Nintendo wii problems

Hold the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, firmly tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard. Check for proper response.

  • Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen.
  • Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote.
  • The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV.
  • Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii console, and the Wii Remote.
  • Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles, sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves.
  • Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically. Check for wireless devices such as cordless phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices, and move or turn them off.
I hope this fixes it for you!

Sensor bar doesn't work

1) Is the bar plugged into the console?
2) Did your cat or dog chew through the wire?
3) Have you tried using the setup menu to alter the remote's sensitivity?
4) Is anything interfering with the sensor bar, such as a reflective surface or other lighting in the room? Shiny coffeetable tops and fluorescent lights aren't friendly to the Wiimote. Try covering reflective surfaces and playing with the lights off.
5) If you get a replacement and still have the same problem, then the problem is with the Wiimote.
