Brand new wii sensor bar not working . sensor lites up , game comes on , but "pointers" wont appear on screen ? any solutions ?i

There are a few possibilities:
  • Light/Heat sources interfering with the sensor.
  • Ensure the bar is oriented correctly
  • Ensure the Wiimote is properly synced
  • Ensure the sensor bar sensitivity is set correctly.
  • Not all games use pointers, but work regardless

If all else fails, turn off the console for five minutes.
This will reset the console and possibly fix your problem.

Hello ,my Wii remote will not show cursor on t.v.

Make sure your sensor bar is plugged in, check the controller sensibility in the Wii options, while you're there check if you have the right position in the settings(above tv or below) and lastly, make sure you have clear line of sight between the wiimote and the sensor bar. If this doesn't fix it, then your sensor bar might be damaged and needs replacement.

My wii remote is shaking on the screen and can't focus properly

Fix your sensor bar, change your batteries. If you sensor bar is not set the correct way it will shake and the hand will be green some times. Make sure you set the sensor bar in the direction you are standing or pointing it at. try to reset it then reposition it

My Wii onscreen cursor appears to be shaking up and down violently for no reason. Please tell me how to fix this nonsense.

Make sure there are no glaring lights either in front of you or behind you. A 100 Watt bulb affected my Wii. The bright light interferes with the infrared on both the controller and the sensor bar on the TV. I turn on only 25-30 watt bulbs in my living roon when playing the Wii. Changing batteries did not help. Worked for Mii!

Hand icon wont appear on the Wii main menu

Well, mabey your sensor bar settings are out of wack. You might have your sensor bar set to above TV but you actualy have it below. To fix it, I would move the sensor bar to the opposite position, go into settings and chanage the sensor bar settings to the way you want. then put the sensor bar back where you want it.

Sensor bar doesn't work

1) Is the bar plugged into the console?
2) Did your cat or dog chew through the wire?
3) Have you tried using the setup menu to alter the remote's sensitivity?
4) Is anything interfering with the sensor bar, such as a reflective surface or other lighting in the room? Shiny coffeetable tops and fluorescent lights aren't friendly to the Wiimote. Try covering reflective surfaces and playing with the lights off.
5) If you get a replacement and still have the same problem, then the problem is with the Wiimote.

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.

Wii Cursor Does Not Appear

I had the problem where the cursor worked on the main menu screen, but disappeared once you entered any of the channels or a game. For me the problem was a faulty sensor bar. You can check if your sensor bar is working by focussing a digital camera on the bar as if you were taking a picture of it. In the viewfinder you should see 5 blue lights illuminated on both ends of the sensor bar. For me, only one side was illuminated. The sensor bar had to be replaced.

Has the sensor bar perhaps been moved? Is it becoming obstructed by furniture or something else?
