Wii cursor not appearing on screen


Step 1:

First we should try to identify whether it is the sensor bar, The Wii, or the remote itself. So, let's start off by trying out the sensor bar. I would recommend you putting two (decent) sized LIT candles on both sides of the sensor, or try simply cleaning off the sensor. If the candle trick works, you have a bad sensor and need to buy a new one. If nothing changes and you're still in the same boat, then we'll try to see if it's the remote.

Step 2:

For the remote there's not too many things that can go wrong it, but we'll see if it's the remote. What you wanna do is see if the if the Wii remote has a dirty top to it (black thing on top). This will cause the IR camera to not be able to locate the sensor. If this fixes it then you'll save some money, but if it doesn't we'll try something else. Now, what we got might be a bad IR camera in which you have to buy a new controller (I suggest trying some neighbors remote or a friends to make sure this is the problem). Another thing that might be a problem is any secondary IR light source will cause interruption with the communication from the sensor to the Wii remote, but I highly doubt this is your problem.

Step 3:

Now, if all of these fail it is more than likely something with your Wii console and I would highly recommend you contact Nintendo Customer Service http://www.nintendo.com/corp/contact.jsp for they might have more knowledge than me about that. I hope that this helps you out!

Tip

Wii Cursor is off-center, jerky, erratic, disappears, etc.


  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote. If the Wii Remote Jacket is being used, verify that it's securely in place on the Wii Remote. If the Wii Remote Jacket is askew, it might be partially blocking the infra-red sensor on the front of the Wii Remote.
  • Try a new set of batteries. Occasionally weak batteries can cause this type of behavior.
  • Reset the Wii Remote:
    1. Take the batteries out of the Wii Remote, wait for one (1) minute, and then re-insert them.
    2. Wait a few seconds before pressing any buttons to wake up the Wii Remote.
    3. Re-sync the Wii Remote by using the steps listed above in the white box titled "Try these steps!".

  • Check the Directional Sensor Functionality by holding the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard.
  • Verify Sensitivity Setting dots:
    Go to the Sensor Bar's sensitivity setting in the Wii menu.
    • If only one or no dots appear on the sensitivity screen, there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar.
    • If there are more than two dots, then it appears there is an additional light or infrared heat source being picked up by the Wii Remote. 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.
    • If both dots appear and the erratic behavior continues even when you move closer to the TV, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired.

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.

Cursor hand will not show up


Make sure you do not block either the sensor bar or the sensor on the wiimotes. Check all your connections in the back escpecially the sensor bar. If everything is all set you said it worked for your new wii system so im assuming your old one has issues. try all these out and tell me how it works out

Wii Cursor Does Not Appear


I had the problem where the cursor worked on the main menu screen, but disappeared once you entered any of the channels or a game. For me the problem was a faulty sensor bar. You can check if your sensor bar is working by focussing a digital camera on the bar as if you were taking a picture of it. In the viewfinder you should see 5 blue lights illuminated on both ends of the sensor bar. For me, only one side was illuminated. The sensor bar had to be replaced.

Cursor does not appear


exchange it

    Cursor not appearing
    Please note that our experience shows that this troubleshooting is best performed using only one (1) Wii Remote at a time.
  • Some games do not use the cursor feature of the Wii Remote; Make sure the game you are attempting to play uses the cursor by reading the game's instruction manual. You can also exit out of the game to return to the Channel Menu and use the Wii Remote to see the cursor. If the cursor still does not appear, continue with the steps below.

  • Trying to use multiple Wii Remotes in the Mii Channel or Photo Channel? These Channels only allow the Wii Remote designated as "Player 1" to function.

  • Verify that the Wii Remote's pointer lens is free of obstructions and contamination (stickers, heavy smudges, etc.). The pointer lens is the tinted rectangle at the end of the Wii Remote.

  • Check the battery power level by turning off the Wii console, then opening the battery cover of the Wii Remote. Press and release the red "SYNC" button to check battery strength. The number of lights flashing indicates the Wii Remote's battery strength. Four flashing lights indicates full strength. Our experience has shown that as your battery strength decreases to one (1) or less lights flashing, the cursor may not appear. For troubleshooting, if possible, try using fresh batteries so that all four lights illuminate. For guidelines on using batteries, please click here. If after inserting brand new batteries, you are still seeing less than all four LEDs flash, then your Wii Remote will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.

  • Is the Wii Remote properly synced?
    Press the POWER button on the Wii Remote to see if the Wii console powers on.
    • If it does, the Wii Remote is synced with the system. Please skip to the next section.
    • If the power doesn't come on, power on the system manually and try syncing the Wii Remote.
      • If the Wii Remote will not sync, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.
      • If the Wii Remote will sync and the cursor still does not appear, try another Wii Remote if possible.
        • If at least one Wii Remote is working, there is likely a problem with the first Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please click here for repair information.
        • If you have only one Wii Remote, or none that are working, please continue troubleshooting.

  • Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup).
  • Check the cord on the Sensor Bar for any frayed wires or kinks, and verify that the Sensor Bar is free of obstructions.
  • Check the button functionality, and that the Sensor Bar is operating correctly, by accessing the Wii Main Menu. Use the "+" and "-" buttons to scroll side-to-side through the Wii Channel screens.
    • If you are able to scroll with the "+" and "-" buttons, but the cursor is not appearing, then there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar. Please click here for additional Sensor Bar information.
    • If there is no response, there is likely a problem with the Wii Remote. Please click here for repair information.

Wii remote controll


Buy a new sensor bar. None of my 5 Wii remotes had a cursor on screen so I bought a new sensor bar and it worked fine.
