    replacement sensor bars are pretty inexpensive.

    you could also put a couple candles in front of the tv, and it will work.

    You should've searched up sites to see if they sell em, besides wasting your time, getting through Nintendo. (:

    replacement bar
    much better (brighter IR) than wireless and no batteries to keep replacing.


    my sister's cat ate two wired sensor bars and now they live off of a wireless sensor bar. my nephew spilled wax on the carpet when they used candles.


    $10 replacement:

    the remote senses light bulbs: including christmas bulbs and candles.

    the remote senses the bar's IR bulbs and transmits those senses to the Wii via bluetooth for pointing the cursor.

    the sensor bar emits with IR bulbs instead of bright white lights so the light is invisible to us.

    imagine if you used christmas lights or candles and had to have those bright lights shining in your pupils as you're trying to focus on your TV.

    make sense?

    you don't want to be in the middle of a game and wonder if poor performance is due to weak batteries... the rob batts from remote controls or it's too late in the evening to run out a buy a set of batts. wired sensor bar costs less and gives less stress if it's cat-proofed.

    I have a wireless one for when i travel... i didn't want to risk breaking that tiny cable.

    I got it off ebay for $5 after shipping, 2-3 week wait from hong kong.

    Wow, that cat would be dead if it did that to me. Or my sister would be owing me 20.

    It should only be a pos. and neg. lead. Rewiring it should be quite easy.
