Try a new remote, if that not it then you have internal problem.

No connection from remote to screen

Your sensor bar is definitely burned out, you can get a new wireless one at wal-mart for $20. Often wii sensor bars burn out because people put it directly on the tv instead of using the stand, the tv gets hot and the LED lights in the sensor bar burn out. If you want make sure that it's the sensor bar that's broken, get a video camera and video tape the sensor bar while it's plugged in and the wii is on, if you can't see four LED lights on each side then it's broken.

First of all, do you have a sensor? If you don't you should get one because you can ONLY make movements with a sensor. If you do put the sensor in a place that you'll be pointing your Wii remote at. Example: Try putting the sensor on top of a short television. Always try to point at the television because the sensor can detect the Wii remote. Hope that helps!

try re syncing the remotes using the red button on the wiimote and the wii console and your wii remotes should all be working fine.
if your worried about your sensor bar use a digital camera to take a picture of it, if the leds in the picture are working then your fine, or don't rent games from blockbuster, rent from jumbo video
