    Anyone have any problems with the wii remote. I have one that just started to stop working. i was playing metroid today, and i had some ppl over so we wanted to play some bomberman 93 VC. well at the moment the remote stopped working. i have tried to change the batteries and re-sync the remote. The funny thing is that all the buttons on the remote work fine, i can turn the system on and off, i can use the - + to change screens. But i cannot see the finger on the TV. The other remote is working great. I have tested some games and wii spots works as long as you dont point at the screen. When i hook up a nunchuck or classic controller the whole remote stops working and shuts down. This is really pissing me off ..i really dont want to buy another remote if i dont have to. I have had the system since day 1 on the release, but i figure the remotes should work longer then that.

    Any help would be super.

    Oh PS the speaker is making a crackling noise from it.

    did you spill anything on it?
    Maybe the sensor bar is the problem, since the buttons work?
    I don't know what to tell you other than that. I don't know why it would shut down when you hook up a peripheral to the controller, unless it's just a defective wiimote...

    Edit: Check this sticky thread:http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-hardware/25309-complete-guide-wiimote-problems.html

    Maybe something there will help you?

    Also, here's another sticky with Nintendo Customer Service links: http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-hardware/6995-all-problems-go-nintendos-customer-service.html

    No nothing spilled in it.

    Just started out of the blue. Metroid worked fine then boom nothing. really sucks. i think its the orignal one i got with the system since release.

    Down 50 bucks for a remote

    Call Nintendo and ask them about, they may replace it for free. They did that for me when one of mine had a problem with the motion sensing capabilities.

    Having a similar problem

    Hi there

    Im having a very similar problem.

    Only had my Wii for a few weeks. I have been playing a bit of WiiSports no problem and thought i would have a bash at a V/Consol game i downloaded. plug in my Classic Controller only to have all wiimote functionality removed and the "home" button screen appear.

    Tried it with the nunchuck in on Zelda:TP and the same happened. have to remove the controller to be able to use wiimote again and can't use the controller when plugged back in again

    any ideas

    Es
