If your Wii remote is acting up it seems like the best way to fix it is to turn the controller button side down and smack it into the palm of your hand. That's not my advice, that's actually the advice
from Nintendo tech support (my advice would be to just throw the thing at the wall but that's just me). I'm not sure what's funnier, the fact that this is a Nintendo approved solution or that it actually works.
