    Broken Sensor Wire?...

    My sensor wire got snapped today in a household accident and I was wondering if anyone had any input regarding the possibility of splicing the wire. When I opened the wire up there seems to be only two leads, one copper and one red wire. Once I spliced them together I can play the sport disc game and also Zelda with the exception of aiming the sling shot on the screen. The remote cursor seems to be very erratic and does not show up properly on the screen. I tried re-syncing the remotes and it doesn't seem to matter. I obviously will buy a new sensor but I was looking for help in the interim so the game doesn't sit there unused in the meantime.

    Thanks, Joe

    Use two tiny candles!
    They work perfectly for me...
    Put the 2 candles where the ends of the sensor bar would be.
    Try it for yourself!

    Meh

    All the sensor bar does is give off a couple of IR signals so that the remote knows which way it is pointing. It is only used when you are pointing at the screen, not for motion sensing etc.
    A candle will also give off an IR signal, so a pair of them will do the job.
    The remote communicates with the Wii using bluetooth.

    its not too difficult to make a wireless one... with either battery power, or a power source
