My friends handset wasn't picking up the sensor, or so they thought, so I took my hand set round and still didn't work - no response, no vibration.
Took the sensor to my house and use my handset and it worked. so the sensor works.
As my handset didn't work on their wii I presume there is nothing wrong with their handsets either.
so is the problem with the console. Is there anything else we can check.
Okay i'm not an expert with the sensors so this isn't the best advice. IOf you are no where near the sensor it can't detect the wiimote also too close to the tv is not good. Sorry if this advice is suckish but i'm trying...

I am not sure but I had the same problem when I got a second remote hand set and my kids knew the answer. I first thing I would do is to ensure that you have new batteries in the handsets. Secondly there should be a small button inside the handset. I think that you need to push it to synchronize the handset to the Wii base station. I hope that helps
Well I think that the expansion pack has died I had a problem while I was in the middle of perfect dark it would freeze and then 2 seconds later the screen went black and than it went to the tv screen saying no signal. the expansion packs make it look like it died but it didn't.
you might have it stuck on a different video output e.g HDMI or AV. i had the same problem when i took my ps3 to a friends house mine was stuck on HDMI from my tv and i put it on my friend's tv on AV and it didnt show up i thought my ps3 was broke but when i got it home i realised you have to change it from HDMI to AV through settings on the XMB on display settings. hope this helps
1. Your sensor bar is no good, can you get the pointer icon on the wii's main menu to work properly? To fix this you'll need to contact Nintendo and get a new sensor bar or buy one of the third party ones, Nintendo should help you out though.
2. The accelerometer in the wii is stuck, which does happen from time to time. To fix this turn the Wii remote so the buttons face towards the floor and slap the back of the remote firmly(not too hard!) with the palm of your hand. It should work if that is the problem.
3. The accelerometer is broken or otherwise rendered useless. To fix this you'll have to contact Nintendo.
To get a hold of Nintendo 1-800-255-3700 they're very friendly and it never takes very long(I got helped in 5 minutes the day after Wii was released.) Best of all, Nintendo doesn't outsource!
Try dropping it again. Seriously. Inside the remote there is a very small 'gyro sensor' that can get stuck in one spot, basically all you have to do is jar it loose again. I actually had this same thing happen a while ago, I called Nintendo customer support. I was surprised. A very pleasant lady took my call within one
minute of getting through the push-button maze to get to Wii Remote
I explained what the problem was and what I had tried. She then
asked me to check one more thing - the Wii Sensor - which checked out.
Then the conversation went something like this: Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Okay - I want you to take the remote, button side down and smack it into the palm of your hand two or three times." Me: "You've got to be kidding" Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "No sir, do it hard enough that I can hear it across the phone line but not hard enough to damage the remote" Me: "You're sure?" Friendly Nintendo Help Desk Lady: "Yes, sir."
So, button-side down, the funky Wii remote got smacked in the palm of my hand three times.... ...and the thing worked!
it seems that your synchronisation could have been lost, bear in mind some Wireless connections such as that of the wii can be scrambled/lose single if there are alot of electrical appliances in close proximity, as this messes with the wireless signals being transmitted.
you may just need to Re-Sync your Wiimotes which is simple. on the underside of the mote, inside the battery compartment there is a small red Button, pressing this whilst pressing the sync button on your nintendo wii should successfully sync each mote to your wii allowing you to play :)
