    The guitar won't connect. We tried the controller and it worked fine. Her old guitar works. The red light blinks so I know the batteries are fine.

    You sure it's the guitar - most people are complaining it's the actual game.



    I bought the Guitar Hero World Tour with guitar in a sealed box. I also bought 3 more Guitar Hero games bundled (without guitar). The guitar works. The 3 other games work. The World Tour game is not readable by my system.

    When trying to start the game on my ps2 it only goes up to the loading game and then to a black screen.

    Guitar Hero World Tour does not load on my PS2 all other games work, the game was returned and I was given a new one, the same thing happened.

    Bought the World Tour ... It did not load on the PS2 (All other Guitar Hero disks load fine).. blank screen ... Returned for a new one, same thing. We bought it at WalMart. Must be a disk copying problem.

We have the same problem. I called Playstation Consumer/Technical support at (1-800-345-SONY) and they had me give them the serial/model number off the back of my console. Per the technician they are aware of a problem with the dual layered GHWT not playing on the PS2. They are sending me a form to return my console to them and are going to replace it with a new unit free of charge. My console is about 1 yr old. Apparently the more recently mfg. consoles with play the game.

The reason is that the disc is multilayered because the game is so large and because most ps2's are by now 3+ years old the reading lens is dusty/dirty so cant read the 2nd layer of information so rejects it as a disc. this can be sorted by cleaning the lens with the special lens cleaning discs or some other cleansing agent. ask a local electronics store for help

SOURCE: Guitar Hero World Tour PS2

If you have old ps2(fat one) or some of the older slim models they are unable to read the new dual layer discs like GHWT. You can send your ps2 back to sony to reformat it to be able to read these new discs for about $50. There is currently a class action lawsuit against sony and activision for not being upfront about this problem.

My Ps2 guitar hero plays Guitar hero #3 perfectly fine, but the other one Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's wont play at all. We were not able to get the World Tour to play at all. What gives?


Check the bottom of the disc it may be dirty or scratched. If its dirty then clean it with rubbing alcohol, if scratched you'll have to buy a scratch remover.

The guitar hero world tour does not play on my playstatin 2


We had the same problem with Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. We have an older fat PS2 that would play all of our other games but this one. I tried changing the settings to fast/smooth, changed the diagnostics, still didn't work. Finally, I took The PS2 apart, blew out the dust,cleaned the laser lens with a qtip and rubbing alcohol, dried it gently with a dry q-tip, and the game works!!
