Have you made sure the remotes are linked with the Wii? To link a Wiimote with a Wii

  1. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.


  2. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.


  3. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.


  4. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).

This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.

My wii isn't showing the wii hand on the menu screen or anywhere else so i can't get to anything, so can you please help me.


Make sure the Wii Sensor Bar is correctly plugged into the Wii, and that the Wii Remote has an unobstructed path to the Sensor Bar. Move the Wii Remote around, as the positioning of the Sensor Bar may not be exact. If you've done all of this and the problem persists, it may be that your Wii Sensor Bar is damaged. You may have to buy a new one.

Cannot get curser to show on screen


This could very possibly be an issue with the sensor bar. Try these steps:
  1. First, ensure your sensor bar is plugged into the console and oriented properly! Take a look at this picture to see how it's supposed to be facing (NOTE: you will NOT see the purple lights even if your sensor bar is working!! These are ultraviolet lights and are not detectable to the human eye!) Click here for the picture.
  2. Make sure your Wii remote is on and has new batteries! Older batteries decrease the strength of the light that the Wii remote gives off that it uses to communicate with your sensor bar.
  3. Assuming these things work, consider increasing the sensitivity of your sensor bar. Directions for how to do this have been posted online by Nintendo here.
If none of this works, chances are there's something wrong with your sensor bar, Wii remote, or a combination of both. Replace the sensor bar before replacing anything else. If that doesn't work, get a new Wii remote. Good luck!

Console not responding. have changed remote and sensor bar


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.

Wii remote cursor not showing on screen


My only idea is to check the batteries in the sensor bar. Placement of the bar (above or below the TV) never had an impact on the cursor in my experience.

I have a Nyko Wireless Sensor Bar for the Nintendo Wii. I am able to turn it on, but it doesn't seem to recognize any of my remotes on the screen. What is wrong with this device?


Check the batteries in the Sensor bar, make sure it isn't being blocked by anything, back away from it and keep trying to use it at a distance... And for the sake of correctness: the Bar does not recognize anything, it merely emits infrared signals that the Wii Remote picks up and sends to the Wii via Bluetooth to interpret and calculate where to position the cursor on your TV screen. The strange thing is that the Wii Remote can sometimes be overpowered by bright lights Including the sun, so try to stay away from windows and lamps etc, etc..

You just got learned!

Remotes not picking up anything


I would suggest replacing the senor bar, it is not that uncommon that one the the Infrared LED's in the sensor bar to have burned out or go bad.

I personally use the wireless sensor bar after my original senor bar went bad

My wii remote


@ Slivic22
Some games does not use Sensor Bar pointing because they play with motion/accelerometer only. After you select the number of sets on Wii Sports Tennis, there is no Sensor Bar pointing except for Pause menu. That's because you Swing the remote like a racket.
