    Help with censor.

    Okay, so I got a wii yesterday and it's really cool.
    Yesterday I brought it home, and played it all day.
    Everything worked perfectly fine, untill today.
    This morning I turned it on and the cursor wont show up on the screen.

    I read the manual, I re-sync'd it, I changed the batteries in the wiimote.

    I can press the home button, and The '+' / '-' signs, but the cursor wont show.

    If anyone can help me out at all, i'd really appreciate it.


    -Thank you

    Trying moving the bar from the top to the bottom. Or vice versa depending on the way you have it arranged.

    Make sure you have your sensor bar set to either above or below your tv. Plus if you have your sens down it will require you to stand closer to your tv

    Make sure the sensor bar is plugged in and the wire has no breaks in it.

    Make sure the IR ports/sensors on both the bar and WiiMotes are clean (not covered in any way what-so-ever).

    Make sure there is no interference from things such as Christmas tree lights or other bright lights. You can test this by turning off all lights in the room.

    Well the only problem is, I've done all of those things, and nothing works.

    I have no clue at all what's wrong with it.


    The lights on the sensor light up, and the buttons on the wiimote work.

    sooo.... I just dont know.

    -Unplug the Wii
    -Take the batteries out of the Wiimote
    -Let it set for a couple of minutes
    -Put the batteries in the Wiimote again
    -Plug in the Wii again
    -Turn on the Wii from the Wiimote
    -Resync if needed

    EDIT* Also try replugging the sensor bar if the above doesn't work. Also found this on Nintendo's site:

    The sensor bar doesn't have lights. . .what are you using?


    When all else fails, call Nintendo (www.Nintendo.com); You have a 1-year warranty so use it!

    Wiilink, thank you for the help but I tried the above, and still no luck.

    Im starting to think that somehow my sensor bar just died out somehow.
    I called the Nintendo technical issues hotline, but they didn't give me all that much help.

    In the end they just offered to send me a new sensor free of charge.

    Now all is well(besides the fact that I have to wait 1-2 weeks to play my wii).

    Still, I wonder what could have happened. I mean honestly, the only time the sensor bar was touched was when i took it out of the package and placed it onto my tv.

    damn, that sucks. I'm guessing you can't play VC games either while you wait?
