    This has gotten to the point, that it's really making me angry.

    The ir led's are on, the controllers 'home' '+' and '-' buttons work...
    But no cursor!?!?!?

    I really dont understand this at all.


    becuase if you think about it, it shouldn't be the wiimote ( due to the fact that all non-cursor buttons work)

    And it shouldnt be the sensor( due to the fact that the ir led's are still bright and shinning.

    so...what exactly is the problem. you can't point? or you can't press the buttons.

    i think you're having the problems many people are having (including me, but i fixed it). here's a quote:

    "Our demo Wii remote stopped working this week. The pointer was still functioning but the motion sensing appeared to be totally unworkable.

    Today we managed to get through to tech support at Nintendo and they told us to hold the remote face down in one hand and spank it sharply with the other.

    "We've only tried this once," they said, "but give it a shot."

    I was boggling at the conversation as it was being relayed to me, but by God it worked. Thing is just as precise as it was before."

    [edit] woops didn't read the post above

    anyway, now i'm sure it's the wiimote.

    see, you have to remember. the wii consists of four parts. an accelerometer, a gyrometer, normal buttons, and the ir receiver.

    the problem for you, as well as many others seems to be the gyrometer. so th e buttons will work, their receiver will work, the acceleromter will work but without the gyromer, it won't. the problems comes fromt he gyromter getting stuck or something.

    If you look at the sensor bar through a digital camera or half-decent mobile phone camera it can pick up the IR frequency and you can see the lights quite clearly when the system is powered up.

    Of course the downside of this is when you can't see the lights, you don't know if it's your camera not picking them up or the sensor bar not working...

    hey, if you want to play it before the new sensor bar arrives try using two candles. IR light is just heat anyway, so put two candles on your tv, spaced approximately as the IR emitters are on the sensor bar and and try it out. If the problem is in the sensor bar and the Wiimote is perfectly fine then its guaranteed to work. Ergo, it would also be a good way to check if its actually a sensor bar problem.

    if you go on youtube and search "wii candles" there are a bunch of videos demonstrating this, heres one of them:

    Good luck,

    There still aren't any visible lights on the sensor bar that can be seen with the naked eye, which was my original point.

    It would not matter if the sensor bar was "upside down" as there is no communication between the wiimote and the sensor bar. The sensor bar is for frame of reference only. You could remove the sensor bar all together and just place two dinner candles on top of your tv and they will emit similar levels of IR light.
