problem between remote,sensor bar and new games

just bought super mario galaxy and cabela's big game hunter 2012, and once it is loaded for game play, the remote and sensor bar does not want to work with each other. this is very nerve racking. cannot figure problem out. we use a wireless sensor bar, went bought new one, not the problem. other wireless devices not the problem, no light issues either.the other game we have that play like these is avatar and we can play the game, it responds with no issues. lost, need help before hammer comes into play.

Try re-syncing the Wiimote using these steps: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/assets/js/doc_frame.jsp?f=/systems/wii/en_na/includes/rvl-ht-sys-remote-sync-standard.jsp&l=

Also, make sure that the Wiimote's batteries are not dead.

well, if your using the wii motion plus you should try calibrating it. if not, do what machbiker said.

Try these positioning tips for the sensor bar: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/assets/js/doc_frame.jsp?f=/systems/wii/en_na/includes/rvl-ht-sys-sensor-connect.jsp&l=

You  could try using a regular Sensor Bar with a wire, but this is probably  not the problem.  Since more than one sensor bar does not work, then it  might be a problem with your Wii.  You can schedule a repair by calling  Nintendo at 1800-255-3700 (6am-7pm, Pacific Time, 7 days a week).

Re: problem between remote,sensor bar and new games

Could it be that those two new games are pirated?

Re: problem between remote,sensor bar and new games

I should note that the sensor bar has nothing to do with any of the motion controls, it just sends out infrared light that the Wii Remote picks up for the pointing functionality. You can look at this page (click here) and try completely clearing the Wii Remote syncs, then re-syncing again. If it's just the pointing that doesn't seem to be working, you can test to see if the sensor bar is working properly by looking at it (while it is on) through the LCD screen of a camera, which will be able to pick up the IR light that it emits. Otherwise, this page (click here) offers a number of tips you should go through to double-check that everything is set up properly.
