    Title says it all. I tried to splice each wire back together as best as I could and finished with electrical tape. The buttons on the remotes work, but the remote pointer cursor still doesn't. Is there someplace where I can buy a replacement sensor bar?

    Thanks

    That's how I got a new GC Controller Port Cover.

    Just buy a new Sensor bar. 100% confident it will work. Unlike some of these homemade solutions

    Wireless is your best bet.

    Saw them at Best Buy yesterday. I believe what I saw was wired though, didn't look too closely.

    Crazy suggestion for when the new sensor bar arrives. Wrap the new wire in electrical tape chewing dogs don't like the taste of glue. Trust me I had a German Shepherd who liked computer cables rather than kibble. Best of mate I've been there.

    My sister's house had a cat chew through 2 sensor bar wires. They've been using a wireless one ever since. Candles are a bad idea. Her son spilled candle wax on the carpet.

    My mom vacuumed up the sensor bar cord one time.
    I was like, "Noooooooooo." [​IMG]
    It's slightly damaged, but works perfectly fine. Oh, yah.

    buy a WIRED sensor bar. wireless ones are screwy with me. buy one from amazon.com for 6 bucks, and duct tape the sensor bar wire to the ground so your dog can't get it again

    Buy a $10 wired one direct from Nintendo. Wireless ones only have 4 infrared bulbs, where as the wired one has 10 bulbs so you should have greater reliability. Plus wireless ones require batteries.
