I'm having some major problems with my Wii today. My console was in perfect working order this past weekend. My friend was celebrating his 24th birthday on Sunday, and I took my Wii and my 4 remotes to his house so everyone could beat the living daylights out of each other in Brawl. While I was at his house, the console was still in perfect working order. It was not the first time I used my console outside my own home, and I never had problems previously.
Today, I set my console back up in in my room where I always keep it, plugged everything in the way it was, and that's when the problems occurred. It appears I have lost both sound and motion sensor capabilities on my system. When I boot up my Wii, there is no sound during startup or on the Wii menu. The cables are plugged in correctly and the volume is up on my TV. I have a multi-console component cable, and both video and sound work perfectly on my PS2 via the same cable. My Wii also will not register the movement of my remote. I can still get the cursor to navigate the menus via classic controller, but it will not sense the movement from any of my four remotes, which still have decent battery power and are synched to my console. Playing around with sound and sensor bar options in the Wii menu does nothing. Neither did a hard reset (with remote re-sync), or unplugging / plugging the cables back in. I've had my Wii for over a year, so the warranty has flown out the window.
Any ideas on what my problem(s) could be?
