So once the problem is solved, here's the final verdict :P
Try this on the remote that stopped working.
Put the remote on your palm with the buttons down and with your other palm, without much force, hit the back. It may sound ridiculous but sometimes the sensors block and need a little shock to get to work again.

There are two ways to sync the Wii remote with the Wii console after pressing the red sync button like you did:
1) Press the "1" and "2" buttons on the Wii remote until the lights begin to flash. This method provides a temporary connection to the Wii.
2) Open the battery cover on the Wii remote and press the red button next to the batteries. This creates a permanent connection or "pair" between the Wii remote and the Wii console.
Based on your description, it sounds like you are using method #1. In order to power on the Wii when the Wii's red light is on (meaning the machine is turned off) and start playing games like you want, method #2 must be used.
Imagine method #1 as "guest mode". If a friend comes over with their Wii remote and wants to play a game, you would open up the game first, use method #1, and your friend would temporarily be connected to the Wii. Using method #1 is like "owner mode" that lets the Wii remote turn the console on and off and always stay connected to it.
Hope this helps!
I spoke to customer support who told me to lie romote on its side on a worktop and tap it on the top 4 times - same on the other side and it worked !!! not very technical but apparently the motion sensors get stuck and this releases it!
First of all, go to the options and do a firmware update. Your Wii must be connected to the internet for this to happen. Next, check the disk for any scratches or other things that may obstruct the laser from reading the disc. If none of those solutions work, then chances are that game in particular is buggy.

Hey, maybe your Wii is not sensing the remotes movement if there is too much light in the room. Try to sinc the remote to the console and then go to the options and check the sensitivity and adjust if necessary.
Hey mushbean, If the motion sensor in your Wii remote is not functioning properly, Nintendo has recommended that you try the following: 1) Hold the Wii remote with the button side down. 2) Gently tap the button side of the remote against the palm of your other hand a few times. 3) Check the remote to see if it properly responds to motion. Should this not solve the problem, you may want to check out the online FAQ and troubleshooting guide developed by Nintendo for all Wii remote issues.The FAQ can be found through the following website: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/ts/wiiremote.jsp Hope this helps you out.
