    Controller not working properly

    Have a controller that we were using and someone walked up behind player when bowling and it hit them in the head. Controller still powers on, but only movement we get is up or down, left to right does not work.

    Is it broken? Can it be fixed? Does it need a simple reset?

    TIA

    If your remote is not sensing movement of your arm swings then the motion sensors (called accelerators) 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....
