If your wii is still in warranty, send it back to nintendo and they'll replace it for you.
If you don't you can just purchase a new one. They now have wireless one too!

My control for the wii will bring up the menu but the courser that you use to make selections does not appear.


Make sure the sensor bar is correctly plugged into the Wii, and that the Wii Remote has a clear path to the sensor bar. Move the Wii Remote around, as the positioning of the sensor bar may not be precise. If you are sure everything is how it should be, it may be that your sensor bar is damaged and/or broken. You may have to buy a new one.

Remotes wont show up on tv screen or ingage the game


Most likely a broken sensor, unplug it and try using two lit candles spaced apart the same length as the sensor, as they emit Infra Red light which is what the sensor does too, and what the Wii using to determine the controllers position, this can actually be used as a replacement for the sensor itself.

Wii Remote Turning Funtion Doesn't Work on Mario Kart


Your wii sensor bar probably went out, replace it. They sell wireless ones at wal-mart for $20. If you want to make absolute sure that the bar is broken, take a video camera and take a quick video of the wii bar while it's connected and the wii is on. If you see four little blue lights on each side then you're wii bar is ok, if any are gone it should be replaced. The fact that all the buttons are still working means that your wii is still communicating with remote using bluetooth, but since it's not sensing any motion, it probably means that the problem is sensor bar related.

No connection from remote to screen


Your sensor bar is definitely burned out, you can get a new wireless one at wal-mart for $20. Often wii sensor bars burn out because people put it directly on the tv instead of using the stand, the tv gets hot and the LED lights in the sensor bar burn out. If you want make sure that it's the sensor bar that's broken, get a video camera and video tape the sensor bar while it's plugged in and the wii is on, if you can't see four LED lights on each side then it's broken.

Wii remote not working.


Get some regular alkaline AA batteries and try your Wii Remote using them -- the blue lights on the Wii remote should light up and register with the Wii console (this is via wireless / bluetooth) -- As for the sensor bar, it is really only an infra red emitter - so if you have it properly connected to your Wii, the Wii Remote (with working batteries) can sense where it is by "seeing" the lights emitted from your sensor bar.

If the alkaline batteries work - You may need to get some new NiMH AA batteries to use in your charger - changers are usually third party devices; Nintendo does not ship charging stations with the Wii.

If the Wii remote appears to be working (blue lights and all) and your sensor bar is properly connected, you may have a dirty or damaged IR port. First clean the top of the Wii remote, just to make sure. If it still does not work, borrow a friends Wii Remote and check to see if it works with your system. If you do everything above and your Wii remote does not work while a seperate one does, the problem is most likely a broken Wii remote.

Wii Handset Motion Sensor Not Working


It could be one of a few things.

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!
