So I have no clue what's going on except maybe my Wii needs to be cleaned or something. I haven't played with the Wii in a month and suddenly, when I decide to play with it, I can power it up except I get nothing but a blank screen. It doesn't even bring up the press A to start menu option and warning. I thought maybe the Audio/Video cable was the problem and switched it with the old one, but it still doesn't show anything.
I have a Protection Plan to get a replacement anytime, but before I do that I wanted to see if anyone had a solution...since I don't really want to loose all my data :((

So for whatever reason, you have lost the use of your Wii sensor bar. Maybe the cat chewed it or you just moved and the kids are complaining they want to play a game and you have no idea what box it was put in. Either way, the sensor bar isn't as complicated as one might think. The bar is nothing more that a light of reference point. Simple. It has ordinary LED bulbs that emit a small light. The Wiimote's cameras pick up the light and with that, the Wii can figure out how the Wiimote is being held and how far you are ect. It's more than that but we're only talking about the sensor's job. With all that being said, you simply need a light reference point placed in the required position as the sensor bar. A number of things can be used from tiny lights or what I found was best, candles. Two tea light candles in place of the sensor bar 5-8 inches apart will work just fine. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF. Unlit, the Wiimote will not show on the tv screen. Light the candles and you now can enjoy your Wii again!!
Hope this helps :D
Your Wii-mote needs to be synchronized to your Wii. Open the battery compartment on the back of your Wii-Mote and the door that covers the SD card slot on the front of your Wii. There should be a red SYNC button in each place. Press the one on the Wii mote and then the one on the Wii. It should then sync and work. You now it is synched when one solid LED light is lit up at the bottom.
If this happens with multiple remotes then you may need to exchange the system where you purchased it.
I would first recommend that you look at the Wiimote when you sync it. The lights at the bottom should flash after the Wii is turned on BUT should light a single one of the four lights steady after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then your problem isn't with the sensor bar. If you've attempted to sync them with no luck, then it is probably (and very unfortunately!) a hardware failure.
Also, I'd check the order in which you are syncing the Wiimotes. I think you SHOULD press the sync button hidden on the front of the console FIRST and then the Wiimotes SECOND. If that doesn't work, then try it backwards just to be safe. If neither work, then I hate to say it, but I suggest you go hunting for your sales receipt! :-(
If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another
disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either
Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be
repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that
will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives
information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems

You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
