Question about Nintendo Wii Console
On my nintendo wii it will let me use the controller to get all the way to the game but then it wont let you swing like its not picking up the sensor once your in the game.. but the sensor works cause i use the controller with the sensor to get to a particular game like throught the menu and everything.. This is happening on all our wii games.. It seems like its controller one, I have tried reseting the remotes but I think you have to use remote 1 for remote one always.. if that makes any sense? i would love any input thanks im kinda technology illiterate.. Ha
It sounds like the accelerometer in your Wii Remote is not working properly.
The "point-and-click" stuff like the Wii Menu use the WIi Remote's camera (which is behind the dark part on the front of the Wii Remote). The motion-sensing for swinging, tilting and other motion uses the accelerometer in the Wii Remote.
Wrap your Wii Remote in a towel and give it a whack against your knee (not so hard as to injure your knee) - sometimes the accelerometer part gets "stuck" and needs to be jarred out of position.
If that still doesn't work, then go to Nintendo.com, click Support, and go to the Wii Troubleshooting section for more options.
Also, you don't have to use the same remote as #1. The first remote that is activated will become #1.
You can also push the Home button on the Wii Remote, then point to the bottom (where the battery levels are shown), press A, then click on Reconnect. It will tell you to press the 1 and 2 buttons on each remote in the order you want them to appear. Press the 1 and 2 buttons on the remote you want to be #1, wait for the remote to sync (the Wii will make a happy nosie), then do the same for the remote you want to be #2, etc.
