    i was bowling yesterday when my wii remotes sensor controls just stopped...all the buttons work on the remote, its got new batteries and the sensor bar is plugged in. ive tried resynching to no avail. my Mii wont swing in tennis or baseball now, or just work at all. i also notice my hand cursor now has trails that follow it, especially noticable on the Wii SPorts title screen and game selection screen. the hand cursor still works on all menus. troublshooting at nintendos site led to no answer. anyone else encounter this problem?

    i also have a second remote id like to use since its new, but i cant assign it as my primary remote (the remote that isnt working came with the Wii). thanks for any help

    I have the exact same problem which happened yesterday. It seems to have happened when I plugged in the internet updated the system and downloaded super mario world and plugged in the classic controller.

    as far as using the new remote as player one, if you start a game then the remote you pressed play with will sync as first player, in my experience anyway

    Join the whole Mii Wii club... My Wii remote did the same thing :O

    In boxing it just doesn't recognise the punches sometimes no matter how hard i swing...

    But tennis, bowling and baseball are Fine!

    I've also noticed this in Zelda: TP, and the worst was the speaker in the remote didn't work, so i resynced, it and was fine after that.

    When that happens to me I just pull the sensor plug out and plug it back in, then turn the Wii system off.

    The way to play Boxing is to flick the Wiimote forwards and to do the side ones flick it in a diagonal direction :)

    Like don't move the Wiimote Forwards just flick it like a drum stick

    Hi All,
    Please check this message.

    I had this same problem and called tech support. They suggested me to keep the remote face down, i.e buttons facing down on the palm, on one of my palm and bang on the remote with the other palm. He said basically the sensing unit in the remote has clogged and hitting it like this unclogs it or releases it.

    Thanks

    My friend that I bought my Wii from had to send the original Wiimote back to Nintendo cause it would not work. Now I am having similar problems with both of my Wiimotes

    I would have a random shut off of wii motes, where all three of them would stop suddenly, and the blue lights on the bottom would blink rapidly when I would try to use them. I started getting this lovely mess after I did a system update after I went online. What I had to do was unplug the wii unit, wait a few seconds, plug back in, and voila! my wii motes all worked again. I think mine is a software update issue.

    I called with the same issue just a few days ago, and they told me the same resolution... worked instantly! The best way to test and see if this is the solution is to load the main menu and attempt to make the hand/cursor do a complete 180 degree turn around. In my case, the hand wouldn't go past 90 degrees before disappearing, and the cause, 'sticking' internals according to the tech guy from Nintendo. Glad to hear it was such an easy fix that actually works for more people than me!
