Fixed! Wii Character Moves by Itself

This post is one of several on how to fix problems with your Nintendo Wii. To see the entire list, click here for the Nintendo Wii Repair Guide.

Occasionally I have experienced issues where my the cursor on my Nintendo goes a little haywire. It will move by itself to various sometime random areas of the screen, or it goes just gets stuck on a side or the corner of the screen.

I have had this happen to me when I was playing "The Bigs", a baseball game by 2K Sports that uses the Wii Remote and the Nunchuck heavily. The fix is a fairly easy one.

This usually indicates that the Nunchuk needs to be recalibrated. If the game uses the Nunchuk for movement, unplug the Nunchuk for ten seconds and then connect it again, making sure the control stick is not being pressed in any direction at the time you plug it in to allow the reset of the calibration.

If recalibrating the Nunchuk did not work, then the Nunchuk will need to be repaired.
