Sensor bar / remote issues with Golf games

I have Tiger Woods and Wii Sports Golf which were playing fine for months, suddenly i seem to have problem with the remotes/sensor bar. The swing motion now often 'cuts out' half-way through, for example only registering a backswing. This happens about 50% of the time but effectively ruins both games. Have tried switching remotes, changing batteries, adjusting the sensitivity settings and moving the postion of the sensor bar, all to no effect. I'm standing well within range of the sensor bar, and was playing both games like this with no problems for many months previously. Can only think that the sensor bar is starting to pack up? anyone got any other ideas?

    I just purchased a Tiger Woods game. In my backswing the shot takes off. I know that I am keeping my finger in the B button. Any suggestions. Only seems to be a problem with full swing shots.

Sometimes sunlight affects the signals between wii remote and sensor bar. check that. is it the sensor bar thats the problem or the remotes. if its the sensor bar you could go get a new one. they also sell battery powered wireless ones, which are grat for plasmas.

Has the sensor bar perhaps been moved? Is it becoming obstructed by furniture or something else?

Hi there

you have the sync error

This needs to be repaired.

you can send the console to Nintendo for free if in warranty, if out of warranty then this will cost you around $150, the whole process will take 4-6 weeks

I prefer the Wii repair guide Method, download the guide and follow the simple step by step instructions and fix the problem in less than an hour, no hassle, low cost everybody is happy.

Best Regards

Cannot play Tiger Woods PGA 09 with 2 remotes


Tried that, but the 2nd remote won't respond when we try to use it to pick second player. My question is why in the world would someone create a game that is sooooo difficult to play!? Picking two players with two remotes shouldn't be so hard to do!!!

Can't get 2 remotes on at the same time


You have to start the game then press the home button on the remote. Go to WII and select the menu for the remotes. Click on reconnect. Press the 1-2 buttons on remote #1. When it lights up on the screen, press the 1-2 buttons on remote #2. Select close out remote settings, go back to the game. Select two players and each player can have his/her own remote.

Wii remote cursor not working in Wii Menu


I find it very irratating to navigate the wii menu as well. It seems our problem is the remote is very very sensitive to the sensor bar. You have to swing the remote around a bit to find the 'hand' you use to click on where you want to go. also, I find that I first have to press A when the menu comes, then almost have the remote 3 inches from the sensor bar. I have also tried putting the sensor bar in different loactions. Like, if we are playing standing up, we put the bar atop of the tv, otherwise if it is a game we can play while sitting, we put the sensor bar under the tv, on the stand (this is a 20") Try moving yours around and find out what works best for you. But it is frustrating as I too find that the remote is too dag 'on sensitive!! Even though I know it's fussy, we still have the problem daily, doen't get any easier! I hope this suggestion helps.

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.
