Re: Remote Not Moving Arrow

Is the Wii Remote connected when you try to aim at the screen (indicated by the lit-up LED)?

Re: Remote Not Moving Arrow

You confirmed what I was inquiring about (i.e., the "1st light").

 

I'm having trouble understanding your issue by the way you described it... So from the main Wii Menu, your cursor doesn't show up at all, right? But what do you mean by "when i push it to the right it goe that way"?  Do you mind clarifying?

 

In the meantime, see if the tips on this page helps:

Oh, so you press Plus and Minus on the Wii Remote to change the page but you can't select individual menu's. Alright then. Send in a webform (http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/webform.jsp) and ask Nintendo for help. Try to explain the situation the best you can. Your Wii Remote may need to be repaired so just be prepared for that. If it's under warranty, though, then it'll be free of charge.

Use a digital camera and put it up to the sensor bar (I think the camera on your phone could work if you didn't have a digital camera) there will be lights on it if you see less than four lights the sensor bar needs replaced. (I don't think it is possible to have more than four lights just to add in)

Re: Remote Not Moving Arrow

well those are "visible" the lights we are referring to are the "invisible" ones that you cant see with your bare eye,  however, cameras, the wii motes, and other tech stuff that sees "can" see it, this is an invisible beam that is aimed at the wii motes to trigger the hand to show up, which is why he asked you to use a camera to see if you can see " purple-ish beams of light" in the camera's shot ( must be digital and thers no need to snap photos)

 

i am thinking, your senorbar is junk, and you should try using the one that came with your console, if it was broken, then you should buy a new one, that does NOT run on batteries like i saw you describe, chances are , the IR (infared) is NOT working

 

i was able to generate the image that shows the bars working  , if you can see this  through your camera at the sensor bar, its working, otherwise, its not:
