Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Guitar not working for Guitar Hero: World Tour

Mine works fine now, just thought I would share a little info for you. If your guitar strums on its own or misses strums that you know you hit then read the following. If you use a battery pack in the guitar instead of regular batteries then you will have problems. I bought the battery pack from walmart, it is for the wireless guitars. Shortly after putting it in the guitar would do what I stated above. Then I made the connection to what the problem was. For some reason the battery packs don't work well with the guitars so take it out and put in fresh new AA batteries and it will work fine. Mine works like it is brand new again (mostly cause it is only a month old). Hope this helps!

    I have The same problem with my guitar for world tour. At the begining of the song it will strum on it's own without me even touching it. I have replaced the batteries a hundred times with rechargeable ones and it works for like 20 minutes and then it starts strumming on it's own again. Is there a specific type of battery to use or do I neeed a new guitar? I just bought it and lost the reciet- please help!

    Novalynn, I now only use nothing but regular disposable batteries and don't have a problem with the guitar anymore, I have found it is not good to use anything but! The batteries I use are the Rayovac if that helps any.

Guitar hero wii controller plays notes of its own accord

I had the exact same problem on the wii guitar before, and tried replacing it which did no good. Then I realized on the solo part the touch slider was what kept strumming itself, so I turned off the slider and it worked! To turn off the touch slider, you have to go into a song and go to options and turn it off, which will keep it turned off until you change it. I'm not sure why it does it, I guess dust gets on it or something.

Hopefully this helps and have fun! :D

Nintendo Guitar only works consistantly when I strum up. Whe i strum down it seems to miss speratically. Only plays one of every 3-5 notes. This is the second guitar i have returned to Wal-Mart...WTF?

The guitar that were made for the first rock band have faulty strum bars that collapse on the inside, yes, even the guitars that were sold separately have this problem, send it in to harmonix for free, they will give you a new one, free of charge.

Wireless guitar strummer on wii repeatedly breaks

Well the strumming by itself is due to the touch slider strumming by itself. Try going into any song and going into options and turning off the touch slider. This will keep the touch slider off until you change it back, so you don't have to do this every time.

Guitar not working properly

Check the D-pad on the guitar. Sometimes it can get stuck slightly and can count for accidental strumming. Also be sure to keep the button pressed firmly when playing chords. It is very sensitive to touch.
