SOURCE: Wii not picking up signal from wii remotes

are you having this problem at the wii menu or during game or the hbc?

some games only allow for a certain amount of wiimotes to connect to the system (usually 1 or 2)

if it has a problem with the hbc (HOMEBREW CHANNEL) then some programs only allow gamecube controllers to work.

This is pretty common, the sensor bar is horrible inaccurate. Try going into your wii settings menu (the wii button on the main menu, then wii settings). Under here you will have a sensor bar option. You can reposition it in the menu there, it has some adjustments as well. Unfortunately it's almost never accurate, which is quite sad, and frustrating when you need to be accurate.

Hope this helps, give that menu a try.

My wii isn't showing the wii hand on the menu screen or anywhere else so i can't get to anything, so can you please help me.


Make sure the Wii Sensor Bar is correctly plugged into the Wii, and that the Wii Remote has an unobstructed path to the Sensor Bar. Move the Wii Remote around, as the positioning of the Sensor Bar may not be exact. If you've done all of this and the problem persists, it may be that your Wii Sensor Bar is damaged. You may have to buy a new one.

Cannot get curser to show on screen


This could very possibly be an issue with the sensor bar. Try these steps:
  1. First, ensure your sensor bar is plugged into the console and oriented properly! Take a look at this picture to see how it's supposed to be facing (NOTE: you will NOT see the purple lights even if your sensor bar is working!! These are ultraviolet lights and are not detectable to the human eye!) Click here for the picture.
  2. Make sure your Wii remote is on and has new batteries! Older batteries decrease the strength of the light that the Wii remote gives off that it uses to communicate with your sensor bar.
  3. Assuming these things work, consider increasing the sensitivity of your sensor bar. Directions for how to do this have been posted online by Nintendo here.
If none of this works, chances are there's something wrong with your sensor bar, Wii remote, or a combination of both. Replace the sensor bar before replacing anything else. If that doesn't work, get a new Wii remote. Good luck!

You may have to adjust your sensor bar settings.
From your wii home page (the page that loads when you start the system) use your wii mote to select the Wii button (bottom left) then select "Wii Settings"
Push the next arrow push "sensor bar"
Here you can either adjust the position of your sensor bar (top of your tv or bottom) and also calibrate the sensitivity of your wii mote.
hope it helps!

My wii remotes are not responding to my wii unless i am within a foot of the receiver anyone know why? and how to fix it, thanks


  1. Access the Wii System Settings
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Sensor Bar " and select "sensitivity"

  • Use the Wii Remote to get the cursor to get the two white dots in the test field.
  • If you see two blinking dots, then the sensitivity is currently set correctlyIf you don't see two blinking dots (they don't have to blink at the same time), adjust the sensitivity with the + and - buttons of the Wii Remote until you see two blinking dots.
  • Select "Confirm" to save the setting.
Please note that the higher the sensitivity setting, the more sensitive the Sensor Bar becomes to sunlight and various light sources. This may impact the operation of the Wii Remote. The initial recommended distance for using the Wii Remote Pointer is 3 to 8 feet from the Sensor Bar.
Seeing more than two dots?
If you see more than two dots on the Sensitivity screen, then the Wii Remote is picking up on additional light sources. Verify that there are no bright light sources, including sunlight, behind or near the TV, shining towards the Wii Remote or reflecting off the TV screen. 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.

The remote is synched with the wii but the arrow will not appear for me to select "wii active".


If it is synced, there is probably a problem with your sensor bar. try using a different wiimote. if that fixes it, you probably need to replace the wii-mote. if not, your sensor bar needs replacing. but try unplugging your sensor bar and plugging it back in first, and try standing at different distances from the TV. Hope this helps

Wii remote does not have little hand/arrow


First, follow these guidelines to ensure you have set up the system properly to have the optimal environment in which to use the Wii Remote:
  • 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.

My console turns on via remote. I can push the left and right arrows but I am unable to select anything on the main menu. I have changed batteries, and tried different remotes. No change. Any suggestions?


Do you mean that no cursors appear on your screen? You most likely need a new sensor bar. The button presses are transmitted via wi-fi directly to the wii, but the wiimote's position relies on infrared transmission to the sensor bar.

Check the Sensor Bar settings as compared to the TV.

In order to get the most enjoyment from your Wii console, you have the ability to adjust the settings of the Sensor Bar. Users are prompted to perform these when the system is turned on for the first time. However, if you need to access them again, please read the information below.

To adjust the Sensor Bar settings
  1. Access the Wii System Settings (how to).
  2. Click on the blue arrow to reach the Wii System Settings 2 menu options.
  3. Choose "Sensor Bar " and select the option you would like to adjust.
Sensor Bar Position This setting is important to ensure a proper response when using the Wii Remote. Place the cursor over the option that reflects how you have your Sensor Bar setup (above or below the screen) and press the A Button. Select "Confirm" to save the selection.
