    Today i started up my Wii after long time no playing.

    But then one of my Wiimotes dont pick up one off the angels.
    Ive tried all my games and it just WONT pick up the spin angle!

    Ive tried my other WiiMote and it worked nicely!

    Call Nintendo, they'll give you a new one.

    Uhm...if you're talking about the pointer like jumping and kinda twitching when you're like just standing a bit away...i've got that issue also xD Not only that but suddenly my rumble on the wiimote has drastically gotten a lott weaker, i barely feel it anymore...but i think nintendo will replace it since i still got the warranty [​IMG]

    Nah its like; when i point my cursor at the upper right corner it just disapears, and its only in that area. It also only happens if im like 1.5 - 2m from TV. If i move closer to the TV it works just fine.

    if theres a light on in your room the lightbulbs light effects the sensor and can make the cursor dissapear, jump, not react right

    try and make sure any lamps are behind you or far off to the side
    and keep ceiling lights off

    it's a pain in the ass...

    Well the funny thing is that its only one of my Wiimotes which has the problem, all the others works just fine.
