I think I know what you mean by "Dead". It doesn't sense any movement you make, right? If so, sorry but you'll have to buy a new on, but you could use your old remote as a decoration.

Wii remote four lights solid

Sounds like it needs to be re synced with the system, Easy place batteries in Wiimote and turn on console press the red sync button in the back of the Wiimote and press the red sync button on the console it is now synced. If this fails it could be that the Wiimote has failed, if Wiimote had failed within warranty period of 90days from date of purchase return for repair or replacement if it is after warranty period discard and replace with a new Wiimote.

My wii mote isnt working, I press the power button and the little squares at the bottom start flashing, then after a couple seconds it stops. It wont respond to the console.It has fresh batteries, so I...

I am sure the wii manual have this info to read but just in case you dont have the manual:

First you need to sync the Wiimote to the Wii, in the batteries slot is a red button, and in the wii's SD slot is another red button, touch both buttons (dont need to touch both at the same time but dont wait too much between each one) and try again moving the wiimote to the screen and testing it.

If all the blue lights turn off maybe your batteries are dead.

Sometimes old batteries drop acid into your wiimote circuit and might damage the wiimote, that happens frequently with alkaline or carbon batteries so is good to buy the rechargeable ones.

The sensor for my wii isn't responding.

First lets isolate the problem, you have a wiimote that still points, all the buttons still work, but when you swing it, your mii does nothing in say Tennis.
This happened to one my wiimotes after a party, and I was concerned I would have to send it in to get replaced. I looked on their site for help, and got a phone number, but it was too late in the evening for me to get a real person. I tried called back the next afternoon, and they asked me to perform some diagnostic tests, but alas I was at work.
So I phoned again in the evening. Once I got through to a person (which definitely doesn’t take long), I told him the accelerometers in my wiimote weren’t working. He was some what surprised I knew so much about how the wiimotes actually worked, I warned him I was a geek. Once ascertaining the problem he gave me some very technical instructions.
First he told me to place the wiimote in my right palm (assuming I am right handed) rotated 90 degree so that if I were to bring my hands together, my left hand would hit the top face (with the buttons on it) of the wiimote. He then instructed me to whack the wiimote, which I did twice, and now it works perfectly well.
I was pretty impressed. Apparently the micro gyroscope that is inside can get stuck sometimes. This procedure is only advised if only the accelerometers aren’t working.

I bought my son a Wii this past Christmas so it's not that old. The Wii remote finger pointer isn't working; however, I can power the remote on and off, use the "A" button, the home button, and use the "+"...

First you need to determine if the problem is your Wiimote, or your Wii's sensor bar.
You can check to see if your Wiimote is transmitting to the bar by looking at it through a digital camera (this allows you to see the infrared light). Turn everything on and view the tip of the remote through the camera, if it lights up: it's working, if it doesn't: you may need a new wiimote.
If it turns out your wiimote is working, then it probably means your sensor bar needs replacement. I think that is more likely (and less expensive)

The controller shows that the batteries are dead on the screen. We replaced them with several sets of new batteries and the battery indicator light is still read and showing the batteries are dead.

So you having problem with battery issue on Wii?

Try this:
1. Re-SYNC your WiiMote between wii.
2. Open the battery case of WiiMote, Click red button.
3.Open the SD card case of Wii console, Click the red button.
4. It will re-SYNC together again.

Hope this help! Any questions? feel free to PM me =]

The wiimote keeps cutting off on me and the battery is fully charged. so what do I need to do?

Hi there. I had the same problem. I found that one of the battery springs had come loose and needed re-soldering. Open the back of the WiiMote and have a look, just in case

You need to make sure the Wii knows where the sensor bar is. (Above or below TV) Another cause is low batteries. Also waving the Wiimote out of range. Make sure the sensor bar is on the very edge of your TV stand, or enterrtainment center. I have noticed on mine that if I'm going crazy with the wiimote and go to low, it will not register. Those are the most common problems and solutions. But you may even have a bad wiimote. There is also a calibration setting for the wiimote. So try all that. I hope this helps!
Good luck and happy gaming!!

Nintendo Wii will not start

Press and hold + & - on the wiimote at the warning screen upon power-up. This enters maintenance mode. Save your game saves onto a memory card and your Mii's to your wiimote. Go into the options menu and reconfigure your memory. Read the manual for the warnings before attempting this.
