Ok I figured it out. Hope this helps some people... the interesting thing is I saw another post that said he had to have his TV parallel to the wall to make it work so I was trying that and it just got worse. I had to do the opposite and tilt the monitor pretty far back and then wad up some paper to stick under the bar to tilt it further. Then I had to take the gain off automatic and set it to level 5. I have to stay within about a foot from where I calibrated it but if I do, it works fine and I am happily now that I know how to get it going. Strange that two people had to do two totally opposite fixes. Are the LEDs mounted straight from the factory? I like the guns now but it's a shame we l have to go through so much frustration to get them to work. I'm sure if the Wii was this much trouble, Nintendo would be out of business.
To be fair, I got these from a site in the USA called arcade guns. They are the same as ultimarc with their name on the side. The had Me download the software from ultimarc and gave me a photocopied manual of the aimtrak.
