Question about Activision Guitar Hero II for Xbox 360 Multimedia Controller

1 Answer

Yellow fret button sticks

Okay, i'm using an old xbox 360 guitar hero 2 controller (x-plorer), so my problem could just be general wear & tear. but still, i'd like to try & fix it rather than have to come up with the cash for a new controller.

anyway, the guitar works fine except that the yellow button sticks for a couple seconds after i release it. so anytime there's a red, a green, or any non-yellow double or triple, after anything involving yellow, the game thinks i'm still holding the yellow key. it causes me to miss a lot of notes after yellows. a couple seconds later, the yellow button comes up & everything's fine... until i have to hit another yellow note.

sometimes if there's a yellow sustained note i'll intentionally let it go after hitting the actual note. i don't lose my streak, but i'm still losing points & playing the game in a way that it was not meant to be played. plus this doesn't solve the problem of fast soloes.

if there's an easy way to fix this problem, please let me know.

SOURCE: my guitar wont work properly

my scroll bar does the same thing sometimes, it moves up and down uncontrolably without me doing anything. i just recomend restarting and making sure the connections are all right. after i did that it seemed to work fine, but maybe if it keeps happening then you may need to replace it!!

The problem is the guitar. I am pretty sure you did not have the problem when you barely got your guitar. Its a wear and tear issue.

SOURCE: Unable to connect xbox 360 to Guitar HeroWT Wireless Drums/Guitar

pmac92,
Did you sync your guitar and drums first? They are just like a normal xbox 360 wireless controller, you need to sync them.

Why is the blue fret button on Guitar Hero 2 is stuck in down position?


Perhaps the micro switch under the fret button is faulty. return it to the shop and have them test it.

Where does the guitar controller plug into the xbox 360. I don't see a plug like it anywhere on the xbox console. I have the guitar hero III. With the guitar model number 95157.805


If you look on the front of your 360 way down at the bottom you will see a little door at the bottom, push the little flap in towards the system and you will see two usb ports, plug it in there.

My guitar hero III guitar works but the green button sometimes go out. like when i have to hold a long fret it goes out and sometimes the green button wont work on the regular frets


I have the same problem with my guitar, when it really starts to act up I just pull out the upper piece and blow on the connectors, it works a little better after that but then it starts dying again. I'm pretty sure that your controller is just starting to die. Sorry
