I have a one week-old black wii perfectly softmodded through maui's softmod any wii tutorial.
The problem just happened: I was copying save files from wii's NAND to my sd:/nand/ folder through USB Loader GX settings menu. Having completed the copying, I tried out setting an option in the Features's menu (I don't remember exactly which one) that went from OFF to PARTIAL or FULL (I really don't remember now). The thing is that I was hoping it to place saved games on EmuNAND, and not NAND. Obviously, I got it misunderstood.
Well, alright. So I've done that and opened up Donkey Kong Country Returns for a test. The game took more time to load but at least all was working fine. I went back to settings on USB Loader GX and got any changes made restored. I opened the same game again and the remote would not work. It's lights flashed when I pressed any buttons, but thats it.
I have not seen the flashing lights from the sensor using my digital camera, so I concluded that my sensor bar suddenly died.
Does that make sense? Could my misunderstanding have done that?
P.S.: I checked all the cables twice. Changed remote's battery. I only have one remote yet, cuz my wii is brand new.
Any opinion would be helpful. Thanks!
Did you try to resync it?
Yes, many times. Also tried shutting down the whole system and give it a break.
If it was a problem with your Wii Sensor Bar, the remote would still pair and sync to the system and buttons would work but you would just have no pointer controls. So it's not that.
So the problem is worrying me even more then. That was the whole point about this thread. Is there any way I could move through menus without the remote? Is it possible that I have changed the remote configuration files on NAND or something like that?
I tested my remote and the sensor bar at some store.
It seems that the problem is the remote. One of the four player lights never lightened and the sensor bar recognized other wii remotes. I believe my problem is solved.
Thank you guys for the help.
Guys, I believe something is not turning on my sensor bar. Since my wii is home & family edition, I can't plug any remotes.
How do I get to operate without remotes? Is this hardware problem?
The Sensor Bar is supposed to be plugged into the Wii. That supplies power to the bar. If the Wii is on, the bar should have power.
You can check this by aiming a digital camera at the sensor bar when the Wii is on. Looking through the LCD display, you should be able to see the red dots that are invisible with the naked eye.
If you don't see these, then there is something wrong with the Sensor Bar and should be replaced.
But like I said before, without the sensor bar, you still should be able to sync and pair remotes and all buttons should work. You just wouldn't have pointer controls. So if you are having problems other than just pointer controls, then the problem isn't with just the sensor bar. Something else is wrong and may require Nintendo Support to repair the issue.
The sensor bar is perfectly fine. I tested it on another wii. I belive that the connection between the console and the sensor bar has been somehow compromised.
The thing is: is that because of a hardware problem, or is it due to any configuration file that I may have altered? And if that's the second option, is there any way I could check it without requiring a remote?? (Like using my SD or USB connection). Remembering that my wii is home & family edition, so no plugued remotes are supported.
Any thoughts on that would be really helpful. Thanks.
Guys, I finally got it to work. I managed to access health & safety screen pressing reset repeatedly on Priiloader, and then synched the remotes.
