    Not new user, but new here, please help

    WII turns on, remotes are fine, it appears the sensor bars are not picking up any activity from the remotes, however, when aimed at the tv or the remotes we can nagivate from left to right but no hands appear. We had a lot of trouble with the wireless sensor so we plugged in the other one and used the two of them. That seemed to work better. Then we didn't get anything to work. What are we doing wrong. Please help.

    You have this backwards. The sensor bar does NOT receive any info from the Wiimotes. The sensor bar broadcastsout for the Wiimotes to receive. If your not getting any pointer activity with the bar, try two candles. If that still doesn't help, your Wiimotes are not working correctly.

    not a dumb question, I actually checked that about a hundred times, tried both sensors, the one you plug in and the one that is wireless, all the remotes are on, and read user 1, 2,3,4, still no action

    So even though the remotes are on, they could be my problem not the sensor bars. I have four remotes, should I swap out all four remotes seeing as I don't know which one is giving me the problem., And didn't appreciate the candle comment, by the way

    the sensor bar is above the tv, and I don't get the candle thing, sorry. I'm not a geeky WII gal, just a mom trying to get this thing to work again. Two people did tell me it's not the sensors and to buy new remotes, what do you think?

    The candle thing was not a joke or dig. The sensor bar is just 4 IR LED lights. ANY IR source will work for your wiimotes. However, if you have tried numerous sensor bars, and you are not too close nor too far away (too close will give you the exact problem you are describing) then all 4 of your wiimotes are bad.

    Are there any other sources of IR near your TV? (anything that radiates heat also radiates IR)

    Are you aiming properly? I sometimes think mine aren't working right but I am aiming too high or low for the hand to show up.

    Do you have the Wii setup for the bar on top of the TV? If not, that would really mess up the aim and cause the problem your describing.

    And lastly, do try the candle thing. set them about a foot apart, that will help determine if all 4 of your wiimotes have lost their ability to detect IR signals.

    Put your sensor bar below your TV & try again.
