Hi there,
This information comes directly from Nintendo's website. Hope this can be of help:
First, follow these guidelines to ensure you have set up the system properly to have the optimal environment in which to use the Wii Remote:

  • 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.

Verify Sensitivity Setting dots:
Go to the Sensor Bar's sensitivity setting in the Wii menu.

  • If only one or no dots appear on the sensitivity screen, there is likely a problem with the Sensor Bar.

  • If there are more than two dots, then it appears there is an additional light or infrared heat source being picked up by the Wii Remote. 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.

Console does not respond to all remote actions, ie no cursor on screen,only the minus , home , and plus buttons work i have tried several remotes and changed the sensor bar.


I would try to re-sync the controller to the console.
1. Power on Wii
2. remove battery cover from wii remote; press sync button on remote, will cause LED's on remote to blink.
3. Press the sync button on the console (it is located in the memory card holder on the front of the console)
4. The remote is connected once the LED stops blinking. The lit LED indicated what player # the connected controller refers to.

If you are still having trouble then delete the configuration info first and then re-sync the controller to the Wii.
Do this by holding the SYNC button on the console for 15 seconds after turning the unit on (once you see the health and safety screen). After you do this you will need to re-sync the controller individually.

It also warns of bright light sources like sunlight near the sensor bar, highly reflective surfaces (mirros, etc.) behind the sensor bar, sources of infrared radiation (portable heaters or fireplaces) or radio interference from cordless phones, cell phones, etc. as possible causes of interference. See pages 22, 32, 34 of your Wii owner's manual for full information, or call 1-800-255-3700 if you are still having difficulty.

Both remotes for my Wii suddenly stopped working. I think it's the ir sensor, but how can I be sure? Both remotes have fresh batteries and were working  fine yesterday. Now the wii does not register...


make sure the sensor bar is plugged in and oriented properly. If thats all ok I would be inclined to believe its the sensor bar, but you might try nintendo customer support before you go out and buy one.

(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
;)
