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
There's a possibility that your location may be the issue. On the other hand, there's alot of issues out there very similar, if not identical to yours. but SO many give SO much different advice on how they think it should be solved, there's no way to know which ones click & which ones missed.
A few folks said "power cycling" their router helped them. Unplug it... Wait 30 seconds... Then give it a go. Some folks with both PS3 AND 360 said it's happening on BOTH with EA! So that says alot about EA's servers.

in the Ps3 user menu set up another profile it's the first thing you do when you get your new PS3 a lot of people forget about it , then save it that should save your separate profile when playing together . then you can pick which profile to use in future .
