    FRuMMaGe's Guide to Fixing a Non-Responsive Wiimote

    After seeing many MANY thread on this, I decided to write a very short guide to help you.

    By "Non-Responsive" I mean the motion controls are not working. Obviously the cursor will still work as this is not associated at all with motion controls, it is infra-red.

    Now, if you Wiimote will not respond to swings and other actions for games such as Wii Sports, it means the accelerometers are "stuck". Fortunately, there is an easy fix:

    > Lie the controller flat on the palm of your hand.
    > Use the other to strike it sharply several times.
    > Try it.
    > Repeat as necessary.

    Many people think i am joking when I say this, but it is actually the recommended method of fixing it.

    (Mods: Please sticky this if you deem it necessary)

    Trust me. This is the answer they will give you if you ring tech support.

    It works. :yesnod:

    No doubt many of us have indeed wanted to wring tech support but I don't think that's quite what you meant here. :lol:

    "ring" (as in on the phone) perhaps? ;)
