Wii Cursor not appearing (Tried EVERYTHING!!!!)

Hi all, hope someone can help cos I'm getting incredibly frustrated with this problem!

 

I know it's a common problem too- had my Wii for only 4 months. It's rarely used. Was playing a game one day then when I pressed the home button, the cursor had vanished. After re-booting, and re-synching, it never returned so I went back to the shop with the remote and sensor bar, they checked it and it worked so I came home, set it up again and it worked there too.

 

That was a couple of months ago, and now the cursor is vanishing again. First it appeared every so often, now it's vanished completly.

I've tried:

-resynching numerous times

-unplugging everything and resynching again

-replacing the sensor bar

-checking for five lights on each side by looking through a digital camera lens

-taping the remote on my palm

-moving the sensor to the bottom of the tv instead of the top

-batteries are fine

distance is fine/no objects in the way or candles (!) nearby

 

The A and + and - buttons work fine as I'm able to scroll through the Wii menu but the cursor won't show.

The shop I bought the console from are adamant the problem isn't with the remote but I can't think what else it could be!

Any ideas?

See what the support part of the site tells you. It may help, also, since your wii and most likely the controllers were purchased 4 months ago you would be able to get t repaired for free, unless it was a water problem or some other thing nintendo's warranty doesn't cover.

It sounds like it might be time to have the experts take a look at the console. I recommend contacting the Consumer Service office for further troubleshooting and if it is needed, they can look into repair options for you.

maybe the wiimotes sensors are defective, try a different/new one

 

oh and make sure your pointing is not based on focusing the mote on the tv since it goes based on its position aim from the sensorbar and be at least 3 feet away and not right in front of it

KillerQueen before you do anything clean the sensors on the wii bar and controller, then look for any thing broken on the wire of the wii motion bar. If you see any wires poking out that is your problem! if not and you have some about 15 dollars buy a Nyoko Wireless Wii motionbar

this bar works perfectly, it has a alarm set for one or two hours, this takes four batteries and have about three days of life in it! I have one and it is perfect!!

with a digital camera pointing at the bar also make sure the sensorbar looks like the image shown in your camera screen:

IR or all sensorbars should have those lights, even your tv remote when pushing a button

the wii motes have sensors that practically do what the cameras doing and picking up those lights, not emmitting them

 

the wii mote communication is via i think bluetooth and teh sensorsbar and the wii motes sensor is just for cursor/pointer positioning while using it
