guys, im asking here first before I have to go through the bother and hassle of sending my wii back, I'm most dis-pleased....
bought a wii for my girlfriend, its been sat wrapped for a month near enough, but anyway opened it today, started to set it up - turned it on ok, it says press 'A' on the remote, so I did... i hear a "ding", next, it says confirm language, i spent about 10 minutes faffing about wondering what was supposed to happen, only when i turned my back to the TV, facing completely opposite direction (and pointing the remote in the opposite direction too) did the pointer appear on screen - so I have been fiddling with this, got into wiimote settings, etc etc, fiddled with lots, nothing worked, i could only get a pointer to appear on screen by pointing the remote in the opposite direction! and even then it was fiddly and wobbly..
turned all the lights off incase it was that, turned the internet off incase any wireless interference was causing it, even tried it on a different TV in a different room, same exact thing - so tell me, is it broke? any ideas???
