I haven't been playing my Wii for a few months, so today I decided to come back to it. 1) Wiimote does not light up. At all. no flashing, no flicker, no light period. 2) New batteries, straight out of a package. And I checked to make sure they were installed correctly. 3) Sensor bar works, checked it with a cell phone camera, based on what I read elsewhere. Both sensors are light up. 4) Tried to resync the remote. Didn't do anything 5) Tried to reset the Wii. Did less. So do I have a dead remote? I'm not sure if Nintendo actually honors any warranty they imply, so I'd probably be out for a new remote. Rather, I'd be out the difference in a X360, because I won't be buying a new remote, and will just trade in. I had issues with turning the remote to the side before (didn't work correctly, up was right and down was left, etc).
