Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

Our Nintendo Wii can be switched on, the sreen can be seen but there is no "target" which means we can't use the remote. What's wrong? Is it maybe just the sensor or something more serious?

Why is lights blinking on wii controller

that means that the wii remote it out of reach (the light that human eyes cannot see is not seen) or you don't have the sensor plugged in,
or the black thing on top is dirty, and you need to clean it for it to work.
(this won't help if your wii is not responding to the wii remote.)

Can't get a 2nd player to work

Fixed problem. Had to sync the remote with the Wii system by pushing the red button by the batteries on the remote and the red button on the Wii console under the flap below where the disk is inserted - hadn't done that. Now HOTD works like a charm with 2 players.'
