It is a remote fault. Your remote contains an accelerometer inside which determine the directio, and will change according to the position of the remote control with respect to earth's surface. There are granules inside it will run to connect the desired direction to be connected. There is no other way to service it, and it is irreparable. You have to buy a new one. Strong shocks or fall can cause this. OK.

    Yes; ofcourse. You may have seen the cellphones displays which turns the picture both in prtarait and landscape as we turn the cellphone. The same tectenique is used with this device also. If we loose that functions with these type of remote controls, it can't be repaired. It is a sealed unit, and can't be opened for repair. OK.

My console turns on via remote. I can push the left and right arrows but I am unable to select anything on the main menu. I have changed batteries, and tried different remotes. No change. Any suggestions?

Do you mean that no cursors appear on your screen? You most likely need a new sensor bar. The button presses are transmitted via wi-fi directly to the wii, but the wiimote's position relies on infrared transmission to the sensor bar.

The cursor jumps around the screen

Reposition your Wii so when you play you aren't pointing the controller toward a bright light (like a window or lamp). Bright lights freak out the controller. I have a huge window in the room with the Wii, and I have to wait until mid morning on sunny days or it's almost impossible to control.

In wii Boom Blox, the cursor with the remote has become reversed

When you get to the wii menu, with the icons. On the lower left hand corner, youll see an icon where you can access settings. Click on this, from there go to the option that says "Sensor Bar" If its not on the first row, Just select the arrows opposite each other on the sides of the screen. From there you can diagnose your problems.
