Re: Guitar Hero Flashing Sensor Lights
Im guessing due to needing batteries that your Guitar is the Wireless type ?!
Have you correctly Synchronised your Xbox 360 with the Guitar controller ?
to do this, Turn on the Xbox and Guitar press the round "sync" button on the bottom of the guitar, next to its Ethernet port, and also press the small round sync button on the Xbox 360 (located to the left of the memory slots on the front face) at the same time, the rings of light on both the Xbox and the guitar will Turn in a clockwise motion letting you know they are synching, after that the Xbox will assign the guitar to a controller slot. then it should work.
If this doesn't work then im afraid your guitar may have a faulty wireless chip, which would require you to get a replacement.

The flashing lights on the controller mean the guitar is not connecting to the wireless usb dongle connected to the PS3.
1. Verify that the wireless box is plugged in firmly to the usb port on the front of the PS3.
2. If that doesn't work, look on the wireless usb dongle for the guitar hero guitar controller. (It should be a black box with the guitar hero logo on it. You will find a small push button on the dongle. (Make sure your PS3 is turned on, though your guitar hero game does not have to be open. It may be a good idea to have the game running, so you can test your guitar or make sure it is really working). Press and hold the button on the wireless usb dongle for a few seconds. Five seconds should be enough. Doing this attempts to re-connect the dongle and the controller. You will know when the connection is good when the red lights on the controller go steady, as well as the LED on the small button you pressed on the wireless usb dongle. If either lights continue to blink, there is a connection problem still.
3. Try changing the batteries in the guitar controller. Weak batteries tend to cause connection issues.
4. Test the wireless usb dongle and controller with another PS3. This will rule out an issue with your PS3 system.
5. If the problem still occurs on another PS3, the wireless dongle may have gone bad. (This does happen rarely.) Replacements are cheap to find on ebay
I've had the same problem, the guitars for this guitar hero are terrible, they were apparently rushed by Sony; ive researched the problem and apparently you can get a "dongel" or something, it's supposed to keep it connected, look into one.
The sensors have a button on them turn guitar or drums on...then turn on again making the lights flash faster...then click the button on the sensor this will calibrate it...you will know its calibrated when only one light is up...hope this helps as we had the same problem and this fixed.
If you are using the Fender Stratocaster Rock Band Guitar:
1) Ensure you have fresh batteries in the Wireless Guitar
2) Insert receiver into USB hub
3) Turn on Guitar via switch on back.
4) If both the guitar and the USB receiver is flashing blue, then press the guitar logo button until flashing blue light on the receiver stops flashing.
Note that on Rock Band 1, non-Rock Band guitars (ie: Guitar Hero and Wiimote based guitars) generally don't work.
