Re: Wii Remote not aiming

Your standing too far from the screen. I've had this happen before. Try upgrading your firmware (this can be done by connecting your wii to the internet). Or try repositioning your sensor bar

We recently had a power outage. After this, the Wii console power light would not come on. I unplugged the power supply adaptor on both sides, left it 2 minutes, and plugged back in. Now, the Wii console...

The best solution would be to just move the sensor bar to the top of your TV. Then you could change the settings back to the bottom and move your sensor bar back. If that is not an option, just try your best to get back to the settings to change it back.

Wii remote moves the wrong way on screen.

If it only does it during Call of Duty then go into the options menu in the call of duty game and go to the controller settings. and there should be a "invert aim" or something along those lines in there that you can turn on and want to have it off in order to have it go right to right and left to left. That sounds like your problem it probably got accidentally flipped on.

Is your sensor bar connected to the Wii? Check the sensor bar cable for cuts or severe bends (like a V shape) as they might cause the detection problems with the Wii-mote. A cheap fix is to put lit candles in front of your TV and see if the Wii-mote picks it up then.

Wii Problem, the remote

make sure a combination of the 4 blue lights at the bottom of the remote are on (but not flashing, mind you). if they're not, this means that your wii remote isn't connected to your nintendo wii system yet. if when you press a button and none of the lights turn on at all, this means that there are no batteries in your wii remote. if it flashes, this means its trying to connect to your wii system. you might have to troubleshoot this a little bit. try to aim it at the bar that recognizes the wii signal (a separate piece that comes with the wii system).
hope this helps ;-)

Try aiming the remote at the screen ( Providing you have your sensor set up) till you see the little hand pop up and use that to click on the English tab with the A button.

I hope that helped...

possibly, or low batteries in the remote. Try placing the bar under the tv if its above at the moment, or vice versa if currently below. Also make sure sensor bar overhangs tv slightly too...
