The sensor bar really isn't a sensor at all. There are just 3 infrared LED lights on each side of the bar (you can see them if you look at them on the screen of a digital camera while the Wii is on). The bar just gives the controllers a reference point as to where the screen is.
The controllers actually communicate directly with the console. If the console won't recognize them, make sure there are fresh batteries and then

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
  2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up, and press the SYNC button just below the batteries. The Player LED 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, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 to 4).
  5. Repeat for each Wiimote.

How do you charge your wii console


The Nintendo Wii is an innovative video game system and much like other video game systems within the Wii's generation, the controllers are all wireless. Because of the wireless technology, the controls must function on batteries in order to operate. Instead of having the game pause in the middle of the action, there are plenty of methods you can test to make sure your Wii remotes are fully charged.


instructions:
1
  • Charge you're the batteries to your Wii remote by opening the back clip and pulling out both AA batteries. If the batteries are the standard set that came with the Wii, you should upgrade them to rechargeable batteries to save time, money, and garbage waste.

  • 2

    Let the batteries charge for as long as the charger says. In most cases a full charge could take 6 to 12 hours, but fast chargers can fully charge batteries for an hour. Check the charger's manual detailed times.

  • 3

    Use a Wii Charging station for easier charging access. These stations avoid the process of opening and closing the Wii remote every time you need to charge the batteries and they work as a Wii remote stand as well.

  • 4

    Place the batteries back into the Wii remote once the charging has completed. With both the charging stations and rechargeable batteries, lights should indicate when the charging has completed.

  • 5

    Power up the Wii and press any button on the Wii Remote in order to turn it on and connect with the Wii.

  • 6

    Press the "Home" button the Wii Remote control. This button is in the center of the controller and features a small picture of a house on it. A pop-up menu will appear over the screen.

  • 7

    Look at the menu and find your controller number. Right next to the assigned number is a remote battery meter. It will feature 1 through 3 bars to indicate battery level. If it has 3 bars, then the Wii remote is fully charged and ready for use. If it has any less bars then the remote can be used, but is not fully charged. If the battery meter is in red, the remote will shut off soon because there is not enough battery power.

    Bought nintendo wii last xmas and had played quite frequently. then after a break in play of a few mths the remote controls dont seem to be being picked up by the sensor. i chenged the batteries and still...


    Hello there

    Hold the Wii Remote upside-down with the buttons facing downward.

    Tap the remote firmly against the palm of your hand three times to remove any dust sitting between the buttons and the electronic circuit board inside the remote.

    Turn the remote upright and press one of the buttons. If the problem continues, Open your Wii Remote's battery door

    Check that your Wii Remote contains two new "AA" batteries or a charged battery pack. Check that no corrosion is present on the battery's metal elements/connectors.

    Use a cotton swab to clean the remote's battery element/connectors if corrosion is present.

    Check that the Sensor Bar cable is inserted firmly into the back of your Wii gaming system. The Sensor Bar needs to be centered above or below your television so the Wii Remote can transmit signals to the gaming system.

    Stand three feet away from the Wii gaming system/Sensor Bar.

    Aim the remote and press any button to test the device.

    If the remote is not working, stand five to 10 feet away from the gaming system and try the device. The Wii Remote works best three to 10 feet away from the gaming system/Sensor Bar.

    Move any objects blocking the signal from the remote to the gaming system/Sensor bar--candles, other remote controls (TV/cable box) and wireless computer devices/cellular phones.

    Also, if any sunlight is coming in through a window, close the curtains or blinds to keep the light from interfering with the remote's signal.

    Turn off and unplug your Wii gaming system. Leave the unit unplugged for one minute. Plug the gaming system back in.

    If the remote still aint working;

    Turn the Wii system on. Press and hold the red "SYNC" button for 15 seconds when the "Health and Safety" screen appears on your television. The "SYNC" button is behind the small door on the front of your Wii unit.

    Release the "SYNC" button. Remove the battery cover and batteries/battery pack from the back of your Wii Remote.


    Press and release the red button located under the battery compartment. The blue lights on the front of the remote will blink

    Press and release the "SYNC" button on the front of your Wii gaming system. The "Player" light on the gaming system stops blinking and stays on, the resetting process is complete

    The running games on my wii fit and wii fit plus don't work. I follow the instructions (off the balance board, remote in pocket or in hand), but can't get my mii to move in the game. Can you help?


    This has to be your bluetooth movent sensor bar which presumably you have on the top of your TV set. This bluetooth connection will not work when more than 2.5m away from the sensor. If moving closer to the sensor doesn't work, Try borrowing another sensor bar. Make sure the switch on the balance board faces away form your TV set and the batteries are new or fully charged.

    Wii remote doesn't come on. Blue lights don't


    Hi,

    Thanks for using FixYa!

    If the blue light on your Wii controller doesn't light up, its possible that it ran out of battery charge. If you think your battery is fully charged. try to buy a set of disposable battery and see if they will work. If they do work, it means your rechargeable batteries have gone bad.

    Have a great day.

    Hand icon wont appear on the Wii main menu


    Well, mabey your sensor bar settings are out of wack. You might have your sensor bar set to above TV but you actualy have it below. To fix it, I would move the sensor bar to the opposite position, go into settings and chanage the sensor bar settings to the way you want. then put the sensor bar back where you want it.
