    I turn on the TV, then the Wii, then install the batteries in to the controlers. 9 out of 10 times the only function that works is the left/right moving the screen slections. Nothing else. Can't get the (finger) to show up to slect what game to play. Tried to reboot, power off and unplug every thing and reboot. Same results.

Unable to setup second hand control , now doesn't recognize either


Hold the Wii Remote with the button side down. Without using much force, firmly tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times. Doing this does not take a lot of force, so be sure not to tap the Wii Remote very hard. Check for proper response. If the problem is not solved, please follow the rest of the instructions on this page. For all Wii Remote issues: If you are experiencing problems with a new Wii Remote, or are having difficulty with a Wii Remote that was previously working properly, please carefully read and follow the instructions on this page. Check to make sure the Sensor Bar cord is inserted into the back of the Wii console and the Sensor Bar is centered above or below your TV screen (more info). Make sure you are using fresh batteries in the Wii Remote. The Wii Remote Controller should be used between 3 to 10 feet from the TV. Make sure no objects are blocking the signals between the Sensor Bar, the Wii console, and the Wii Remote. Check for interference from infra-red light sources, such as candles, sunlight, fireplaces, and stoves. Radio frequency interference may cause the Wii Remote to work erratically. Check for wireless devices such as cordless phones, wireless computer keyboards or mice, or other similar devices, and move or turn them off.

    2. Try placing the Wii Remote in a neutral position by resting it on a flat surface during game play. If the character or cursor still tilts on its own, there is a problem with the Wii Remote and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.
