Nintendo wii remote

Hi i have had my system now for over twelve months, no problems at all. now however when i point the remote at the screen the cursor goes wild all over the screen. I have four remotes and it does the same thing with all of them. I have even bought a new sensor bar but it has made no difference. I have tried to synch the remotes again i have used new batteries and i have turned off the console disconnected it then tried again. if we use the remote for driving games or other games which do not require the sursor on screen thenthey work fine. please help. thanks.

    SAME THING! I paid the money for this thing to work!!!! Thought that was implied! So I do what now? Usually this problem fixes itself, but it's been like this for a good while now!

    Sometimes after we played a game for a while the remote goes crazy. We can hold the remote perfectly still and point it at the t.v. but the cursor goes crazy all over the screen, disappearing sometimes.

Cant get the cursor to show on screen


Make sure that your Sensor Bar is connected properly and that there is no damage to the wire connect it to the Wii.

You may have to place the Sensor Bar else where and reconfigure it to work again.

Ref: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ht_system.jsp
-Connect the Sensor Bar under Wii Console in the left menu.

My wii wont read the disc! please help


First thing to do is get a Wii laser cleaning kit and run it in your disc drive to clear the dust off of the laser lens. Next thing is to make sure your game is not dirty or scratched. If your Wii console is laying flat, it may be positioned upside down. Ensure that it is positioned right-side up: the game disc slot should be above all three buttons and the SD Card slot. If these things are clean and your system is right side up and it still won't read your disc then you will need to replace the DVD drive. If you Wii is still under warranty (Nintendo Wii carries a standard twelve-month warranty) then Nintendo will fix it for free, if it's not under warranty then you will cost around $75 for Nintendo to repair it. Once you contact Nintendo, they will e-mail you a free FedEX shipping slip that you can use (free shipping both ways) then just box up your Wii unit securely and ship it out to them for repair.

How do i get wii shop chanel


Hello

To get to wii shop channel first you need to configure your system
Configure your Nintendo Wii for a wireless Internet connection. The only way to access the Wii Shop is by having an Internet connection and a wireless router. The Nintendo Wii has a built-in wireless router that can pick up signals from wireless Internet connections. Make sure that your wireless Internet router is close enough so that the Nintendo Wii can pick up a signal.

Loading Wii Shop;
Use your Wii remote to select the Wii Shop from the main Wii channel menu. The Wii Shop is located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If your Internet access is not set up yet, then you will be prompted and automatically brought to the Internet Configuration menu. Once your Internet is set up, you will either be brought back to the Wii Shop or the main channel menu.

Navigating the Main Menu
Look at the main Wii Shop menu. Here you will be given two main options with a couple of general options at the bottom of the screen. The first option is to look for games for the virtual console. The Virutal Console contains games from past systems like Turbo Grafx 16, NEOGEO, NES, Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64. Once you have loaded the virtual console menu, you can search games by most popular title, new titles, system, genre or price. When you have found a game that you are interested in, press the "A" button to see a more detailed description with a couple of screen shots, and find out how many Wii Points the game costs.

Wii Points
Purchase Wii Points directly through the Wii Shop by using a credit or debit card. You will use the Wii remote to point and select all of the card holder information. The minimum amount of Wii Points you can buy is 1,000 for $10, so if you want a game for 700 Wii Points, then you will have 300 points left over for future purposes. Instead of using a credit card through the Wii store, you can purchase a Wii Points card at a local retailer. These cards come in different point values, and 100 points represents a dollar.

Downloading the Software
Finalize your game purchase by confirming how many Wii Points will be deducted from your account. Once you have done this, the game download will begin. While it only takes a few minutes to download, you can see the progress by watching a Mario character jump and hit a brick. Once he has reached the third brick, your download is complete. From there, you can continue to shop in the Wii Shop or play the game.

Wii Ware
Check out the other option that is labeled as "Wii Ware." Wii Ware is a lot like the Virtual Console, but everything created here is new and original for the Wii. You can get updated channels like the new Photo Channel or get exclusive Wii Shop games like "Midnight Pool" and "Family Table Tennis." The games here actually are interactive Wii games, and you can get the full game for a lot cheaper than a new Wii game from a store.

(befory you read this, please excuse my leinghyness)
Well,

If you take apart the Wii very carefully, you might be able to get the game out (which you will most likely never be able to play again because the clicking noise is most likely the disc being rubbed against something) without causing damage to the Wii. Doing this is risking causing damage to your Wii (and yourself if you are too dumb to un-plug it.) so if you have bought your Wii less than a year ago,

Nintendo of America Inc. ("Nintendo") warrants to the original purchaser that the hardware product shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for twelve (12) months from the date of purchase. If a defect covered by this warranty occurs during this warranty period, Nintendo or a NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER will repair the defective hardware product or component, free of charge. The original purchaser is entitled to this warranty only if the date of purchase is registered at point of sale or the consumer can demonstrate, to Nintendo's satisfaction, that the product was purchased within the last 12 months.

if you purchased your Wii more than a year ago,


SERVICE AFTER EXPIRATION OF WARRANTY
Please try our web site at www.nintendo.com or call the Consumer Assistance Hotline at 1-800-255-3700 for troubleshooting information and/or referral to the nearest NINTENDO AUTHORIZED REPAIR CENTER. In some instances, it may be necessary for you to ship the complete product, FREIGHT PREPAID AND INSURED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE, to the nearest service location. Please do not send any products to Nintendo without contacting us first.

Wii freezing up


Hi Ashley,

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.
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp

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.
