My Wii Sensor Bar Works Better On The Wii U Than The One That Came With The Wii U

Don't throw away that Wii sensor bar just yet.

Has anyone else had problems with their sensor bar?

perhaps his gamepad may be facing him as he was playing. if i understand correctly the bar along the gamepads camera also act's as the sensor bar when using a wii remote.

It wasn't that. I tried to use a Wii Remote when my GamePad was on and when it was off, still nothing.

It's not fun getting a defective bar out of the box.

well, at least you still have the old sensor bar. pretty sure they will replace it when needed.

I seriously doubt Nintendo went out and made a completely different bar for the Wii U. It looks the exact same as my Wii one.Maybe he just got a faulty unit.

Might be... psychosomatic???
The sensor bar doesn't sense anything. It is literally a string of lights in the infrared spectrum. It is literally only connected to the Wii/Wii U to power those lights. The only possible reason something could ever be wrong is in the case that one or more of the lights was defective.

It's far more likely that he had a very powerful light source adjacent to his television that was superseding the lights from the sensor bar. I've seen it happen myself.
