Wii remote cursor not showing up

Basicly what the subject says...the wii remote cursor is not showing up. I use a recharging system and I'm making sure it's fully charged, the sensor bar is set where it should be, and everything else is working fine. It recognizes when I press buttons on the wii remote (the + and - flips goes to the next page on the channels screen, and the home button brings up that menu screen). But the little hand is nowhere to be seen. I have tried all matter of positions in the living room to find a 'sweet spot' but the cursor never shows up. I have tried moving the remote all around to see if will select anything even if the cursor isn't visible, but no dice.
Anybody come across this before? Do I need to just suck it up and buy a new wii remote? or just new rechargable batteries? or am I completly wrong and it's a problem with my sensor bar?
(I did just read on the nintendo website a few things to try to get the remote to function again, I'm going to try some and will update this post if something fixes the problem.)

  • I found this a while back:

    Try looking at the Sensor Bar (when the Wii console is powered on) with a digital or mobile phone camera, as if you do not see any lights on either end, that could be the problem and would mean that your sensor bar is defective in some way.:)

    Also from the same forum someone mentioned that the 'hand' showed up when they lit two candles to mimic the sensor bad. If that works for you it's a faulty sensor bar issue.

    Hope it helps!
