    Wiimote Motion stopped working

    Got the wii for the kids for xmas. Today one of the remotes stopped workin in that when you us it for motion (like swinging your arm for bowling) it does notthing. All the buttons work and when pointing it at menus it works fine. I tried powering off and on, and replacing batteries.

    Is the remote hosed?

    If your remote is not sensing movement of your arm swings then the motion sensors (called accelerometers) inside the Remote are stuck. This is a rare condition, I've only had to do this on one remote and the following is the solution if you were to call Nintendo Tech Support:
    • it's hard to believe
      • lie the remote in your palm flat-side down
      • take your other hand and whack it real hard several times
      • avoid hitting the battery door and trigger button
      • if it's not fixed, try again... you'll get it.
    From frankwhite:

    Thank You. I ended up having to call Nintendo which tells me its a known issue... then tells me to hold remote upside down in right hand place left hand 4 inches above the remote and give her a good whack. ((( I actually started to laugh and ask if he was serious)))
    anyhow it worked after the 7th whack.

    So you were right thanks for the help.
    Yep I have my Wii remote working now....

    The Wii Remote is like my girlfriend...
    When she's acting naughty, I just give her bottom a good spanking.
