First thing to try is unpluging it from the wall and let it sit for a couple of hours then try again.

The Wii turns on but the remote won't connect to the screen...all lights working also, bought a new sensor bar and still nothing...???

Turn on the Wii console, when at the home screen press any button on the wii remote, if the lights on the wii remote remain dark then it needs new batteries.

If the lights all light up at the same time then stop this means you are not synced. Press the 1 and 2 buttons at the same time to sync, this will work if they have been synced before.

If your four lights still blink blue then you need to open the little compartment on the console that is right below the disc tray. Inside is a little red button, press the button. Now open your battery compartment on the wii remote and take out the battery, then press the red button inside. Put the battery back in and the controller should sync up. If you are still having trouble you will need to contact Nintenedo Technical Support.

Hope this helped!

I have connected my Wii to my TV but I am not sure which button on the remote control I press to receive the signal on the screen.

This can vary depending on the manufacturer and make of your TV. Usually, the button on your remote would read something like "Input" or "Source". Turn on your Wii and cycle through the different sources until you see the Wii output (usually this is on the "Component" setting on your TV).
