Hi There, this is quoted from
http://blog.wired.com/geekdad/2007/12/crazy-wii-remot.html

The GeekMom and I got the kids a Wii for Christmas. Last night, one of the remotes went funky - you could press the buttons and select options on the screen, but when you went to swing a golf-club, bowl, pitch a baseball or swing a baseball bat, the Wii remote acted like it wasn't there. I'm a GeekDad - I can fix this...I know I can...

  • Fresh batteries - nope.
  • Re-sync the remote - nope.
  • Re-sync all the remotes - nope.
  • Reset the remote - still nope.
So, I exhausted all the options for getting a remote to work given on the Nintendo support site and called (with gritted teeth) the customer service line...two days after Christmas. I expected the worst.
I was surprised. A very pleasant lady took my call within one minute of getting through the push-button maze to get to Wii Remote troubleshooting.
I explained what the problem was and what I had tried. She then asked me to check one more thing - the Wii Sensor - which checked out. Then the conversation went something like this:
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Okay - I want you to take the remote, button side down and smack it into the palm of your hand two or three times."
Russ: "You've got to be kidding"
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "No sir, do it hard enough that I can hear it across the phone line but not hard enough to damage the remote"
Russ: "You're sure?"
Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Yes, sir."
So, button-side down, the funky Wii remote got smacked in the palm of my hand three times....
...and the thing worked!
End Quote

Hope this helps

Unable to bowl or throw with the remote


It's possible your tilt sensors are stuck in the controller. Turn the controller upside down (buttons down) and slap it against the palm of your hand. This is the easiest way to unstick those springs. Good luck!

    1. Press the 1 and 2 Buttons at the same time on the Wii Remote that you want to synchronize with the console. If you are syncing multiple Wii Remotes, press the 1 and 2 Buttons on each Wii Remote immediately (without a significant pause) in the order you want them synced. The order in which you synchronize Wii Remotes determines the player order (1 through 4) for multiplayer games. The Player LED will blink during the syncing process. When the blinking stops, the connection is complete.

    Wii remote problem


    Double check the sensor position is set for the top of the tv if that is where you have it mounted or set for the bottom if sensor is there. Also you can try calibrating the remote in the set up portion of the main menu. Not the main menu of the game this is in the Wii main menu, I think the activation utton on screen is either in the lower left or right when you are on the start up screen. I'm at work now and my system is at home so I can't tell that from memmory right now. Hope that helps. Jay
