Re: problem with wiimote
The problem could be uv light, if its daytime make sure all the blinds are closed no extra lights are on near the sensor bar. if there is a glare on the screen at all it could be reflecting light to the wiimote as well. I've had that problem before myself, if that is not the case try moving closer to the sensor bar, make sure the sensor bar is connected correctly and then go to the system settings menu and calibrate the wii sensor bar and adjust the sensitivity, make sure you are not sitting at a wide angle from the snesor bar either, you can tip the sensor bar left and right in order to allow yourself a wider angle. also avoid using the nyko wireless sensor bar, it has a shorter range than the wired one that somes with the wii, mine came with a wireless on(used) and i just got a wired one and now it works much better. well I hope you find this info at least a little useful.
I've solved the problem :) 1st i went to the store where i bought my wii, then i told them about my problem after that we've find where the problem exactly is the answer is on my sensor bar.. idk whats happened on it. but the store gave me a new one so my wii works well now! great.
Wii Remote Syncing problem is one of the common problem of Nintendo Wii. You may check out the DIY Wii Fix Guide,
that explains step by step to fix the problem without any technical
knowledge. I hope this guide will solve your problem. It also gives

Have you checked the battery in your Wiimote? It seems like a very basic thing to do, but sometimes the wiimote might not hold a charge if you placed the batteries in incorrectly. If your Wiimote is showing a charge, then you may have forgotten to sync up your wiimote with your sensor bar.
Open the battery door to your Wiimote
You'll see a red button on the bottom of the opened hatch, it says SYNC.
Press that and the sync button on your Wii.
If that still doesn't work, check the connection of your wii sensor cable to your wii. Try pushing the cable in securely.
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.
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)
Try standing farther away from the sensor bar. If you are to close sometimes it has trouble reading. Also make sure the position of the sensor bar is the same as indicated in the setup menu, if you have it on top of the tv that possition needs to be selected manually, same if in front of or under the tv.
Let me know if you need more info.
I have a wii myself and i notice that the sensor bars can be a little speratic depending on where you sit or sometimes if the sensors could get a lil dusty and cause this. Ive also herd that sunlight can mess with the sensor bar so if your in a window lit room, try to use it in a dark room or at night to see if the sunlight could be a factor. clean the sensor bar and the sensors on the wiimotes some times it could be how you hold the wimote, your fingers could be covering the sensor so try holding it different.Or you just have to face the fact your wife is just better than you : ).
Try this (I'm using Wii japan, duh): 1. Check that the sensor bar is working (use digital camera or camera phone.) 2. In the settings, there's level for how far are you between the sensor bar and the WiiMote, 1-5 level.
Sorry I can't figure it out how to say, I'm using Wii Japan.
Hope that will help! Any questions? Feel free to ask me =]
