Question about Nintendo Wii Console

4 remotes stopped working

Just wanted to comment that we read about #11 of taking a camera and holding it up to the sensor bar to see the lights. When we did see the lights we held each control for 10 seconds to reset with the red buttons and all four worked again. Thanks for your advice on the camera to see the lights on the sensor bar. It worked!!!

Remote wont connect to sensor bar


Try taking a picture of it with a cell phone or a digital camera. If there are no lights that show on the screen then it may be the battery's are dead. If you had put in new battery's then the sensor bar is broken. The wii sensor bar is just a row of infrared L E D's and dose not sync to the controller. The controller has a camera in it and will see the lights and determine where to put the courser on the screen. You cant see the lights because its not within the light spectrum humans can see.

My remote cursor wont appear and ive changed battery already.


try to check the 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. If one of the light is missing or busted it only means that the sensor bar is faulty. Try to bring it to the store where you purchase it for warranty.

Cant get past language screen


Here are instructions from Nintendo on how to fix this issue. It's most likely related to the sensor bar. Good Luck!

If your screen appears frozen at the Language select screen, we have found that to be related to the Sensor Bar. Please try the following:

Ensure that the Sensor Bar cord is plugged snugly to the back of the console, and is placed properly at the center of your TV screen. For detailed directions on setting up the Sensor Bar, please click here.

Check to be sure the Wii Remote is synced to the console, by using the Power button on the Wii Remote to turn the console on. (The power button is the small white button with the red symbol in the top-left corner, just above the Control Pad). If this doesn't work, try to sync the Wii Remote. Once synced, try to turn the power on the console on and check for proper response.

Make sure that the Wii Remote is being used between 3' and 10' directly in front of the TV and that there are no bright light sources affecting the Wii Remote's operation (review Game Play Guidelines for more information), and that the Sensor Bar is placed properly (see Sensor Bar setup). Avoid sources of infrared light in the gameplay area such as electric, propane or kerosene heaters, flames from fireplaces or candles, and stoves or other sources of heat.

If you are still experiencing problems after trying the steps above, there could be a problem with your Sensor Bar. Please read the following:

The Sensor Bar has five infrared lights on each side of the bar that the Wii Remote uses to determine its position. If these lights aren't working, then the Wii Remote cursor will not display on the screen, and you won't be able to navigate the setup screens.

To see these lights, you will need a digital camera or cell phone camera with an LCD display . After making sure the Sensor Bar is plugged in and the power to the console turned on, direct the camera at the Sensor Bar so that it is displayed in the LCD of the camera. If the five infrared lights can be seen on both sides of the Sensor Bar, the Sensor Bar is working. While the position/angle of the camera may need to be adjusted slightly, the lights are fairly easy to see in the LCD display.

Wii Remote Turning Funtion Doesn't Work on Mario Kart


Your wii sensor bar probably went out, replace it. They sell wireless ones at wal-mart for $20. If you want to make absolute sure that the bar is broken, take a video camera and take a quick video of the wii bar while it's connected and the wii is on. If you see four little blue lights on each side then you're wii bar is ok, if any are gone it should be replaced. The fact that all the buttons are still working means that your wii is still communicating with remote using bluetooth, but since it's not sensing any motion, it probably means that the problem is sensor bar related.

No connection from remote to screen


Your sensor bar is definitely burned out, you can get a new wireless one at wal-mart for $20. Often wii sensor bars burn out because people put it directly on the tv instead of using the stand, the tv gets hot and the LED lights in the sensor bar burn out. If you want make sure that it's the sensor bar that's broken, get a video camera and video tape the sensor bar while it's plugged in and the wii is on, if you can't see four LED lights on each side then it's broken.

Nintendo wii,can't get past selection menu for language


First make sure you sensor bar is plugged into your wii correctly, and it is centered and on the top of your TV.
If you still have the problem then you need to sync your remote with the wii. Do this by holding down the red sync button on the remote, located under the battery cover on the back, while holding down the red sync button on the wii, located next to the SD Card slot.
If it still doesn't work, that means you have a bad sensor bar, you can get a new one at wal-mart for $20. To make sure that it is not the sensor bar, take a video camera and take a quick video of your sensor bar while it is plugged in and the wii is on. In the video, if you see five LED lights on both sides of the bar than it is fine.
Hope this helps!

(1)
Verify that the cable bar sensor is plugged into the back of the Wii console and that the sensor bar is properly aligned with the centre of your TV screen.
(2)
Check that the Wii remote is synchronized with the console using the POWER button on the remote control to turn on the Wii console. (The POWER button is the white button with the red symbol which is located in the upper left corner on the Wii remote.) If it does not work, try to synchronize the remote control, then turn the console and controls that respond correctly to commands.
(3)
Verify that the distance between the Wii remote and the TV display to be between 1 and 3 meters, that there are sources of intense light that can interfere with the proper functioning of the remote (read Guidelines game for Wii for more information ) And that the sensor bar is placed correctly (see Setting up the sensor bar). Avoid the presence of sources of infrared light as electric stoves, gas propane or kerosene, candles, fireplaces, stoves or other heat sources close to the console.

If the steps described above do not solve the problem, the sensor bar could have a problem. Read the following instructions:

On each side of the sensor bar are five infrared lights that located the position of the Wii remote. If these lights do not work, the cursor on the remote will not appear on the screen and you can not step through screens of settings. To see these lights, you must look on the LCD screen of a digital camera or a mobile phone. Verify that the sensor bar is connected and that the Wii console is turned on, and then framing the bar sensor so that it appears on LCD camera or cellphone. If you see five infrared lights on each side, the sensor bar works. Maybe you'll need to slightly adjust the position / tilt the camera or the telephone, but is rather easy to see these lights on the LCD screen
;)

Intermitten remote sensor issue


Evidently 2 good remotes point at the problem being the remote sensor on the TV itself. I have about 4 remotes I can adjust volume w/ including the remote that came w/ my samsung. The TV exhibits the same behavior w/ all of them.

Per the samsung site, the "test" for this (remote vs sensor) is to us a digital camera, (including the kind that's on most cell phones) to "see" if the remote lights up. Just point it at the camera/phone, and press any button. You should see a bright flashing light on the camera/phone's LCD screen. If not, REJOICE! All you need to replace is the remote or batteries in it. If you do see the light, good luck if you're not in warranty. I've been unable to find any procedures for replacing this kind of item.

Wii Remote Control Stopped Working


This happened to my son. I did some reading and found out you have to resynchronize the remote. This is from the manual
1) Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
2)Remove th battery cover on the back of the remote and press the SYNC. button inside the cover. The Player LEDs will blink.
3)Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console and press the SYNC button on the inside of the compartment
4)When the Player LED blinking stops,connection is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number.
This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii remote added to your system.

This worked for me, hope it helps you.
