Just got rockband for xbox 360 and the guitar will not connect. the light just blinks on the guitar

I'm guessing you have a wireless guitar and you need to sync it to your xbox by pressing the white button next to your memory card slots on the xbox and the one on the guitar it is probably around the body of the guitar

I cant get my guitar or drums to work the green light just spins

AS long as the drum set and guitar is made for rockband it should work fine. before you turn on your 360, connect the drumset (and guitar if it not wireless) If it's wireless, press the green x on guitar and wait for 360 to turn on. Then press the sync buttons on the guitar, drumset (if there) and on 360. Hope this works

The guitar syncs the same was a regular controller does.

There's a tiny sync button near the XBox button on the guitar. Press that, and then the sync button on your Console.

Guitar not working for Xbox Guitar Hero

This got to be a hardware failure with the guitar, there is no wires or some button you pressed by mistake.

Try checking out that cables are plugged in, try to switch USB port to connect on the xbox 360, or else its a hardware problem.

Guitar hero 3 legends of rock my guitar doesnt work at all, the green light just keeps flashing on the guitar. please help thank you!

To fix this problem, when the game is in, wired guitar = plug in the remote, and it should work
Wireless= there should be a dot you are able to press in on, which will make the light flash green, then hit the button on your xbox 360 under the memory slots ----Besides * matters on how you have it laid out *
they will connect you to either 1st player * if your remote is turned off *
or second * if your remote is turned on *
let me know how it goes,

GUITAR WILL NOT DO ANYTHING.None of the buttons will work,does not respond.Light only flashes on guitar.

Most likely you havent connected it to your xbox.... on the guitar there should be a tiny button that which is probably the size of a pea... if even. then on your xbox there is the same button on the front of the xbox..... push both of those buttons and it should connect.

Rock Band guitar for xbox 360 stopped working

On the face of your 360 is a little round button that tells the system to search for wireless controllers. Push it at the same time you push the connect button on your guitar or drums. I figured this out after returning two other systems to Wal-Mart.... They really should put this info in the instructions somewhere! Tell me if it works for you guys too.
