Guitar Hero guitar won't sync flashes red wireless won't light up
Bought Guitar Hero for my kids for Christmas. Played a couple of times, but now the guitar won't sync to the wireless receiver.
Tried new batteries, resetting the console, restarting the console, disassemble and reassemble the guitar, but still nothing works. Drums work fine, but not the guitar. Comtemplating on taking it back to the store, but willing to try all options.
Redoctane out until 01/05/2009, but don't expect to get through for a couple of days.
Any other suggestions?

Is this a for a Nintiendo Wii? If so you may need to sync your guitar with the Wii. There is a red
button in the front panel on your Wii and the guitar should have a red sync button. Depress the
red button on the Wii first then depress the button on your guitar. after a few seconds the lights
on your guitar should stop blinking and the guitar should be assigned to controller 1 through 4
once this happns the guitar should start working.
If the guitar is wireless you may need to do the same for other consoles. The guitar may need
to sync with the wireless interface that plugs into the console. The same method applies as
above but the sync button should be on the wirless plug for the controller that plugs into the
I had this same problem.
In my case, the problem was that we bouht the guitar hero guitarm they told us to put the Wii remote inside the guitar and it will work.
What we found out was that those games have a matrix of compatiabilities. The Guitar hero guiar that you plug the Wii remote into the guitar, those DO NOT WORK with Rockband.
You have to buy another Rockband guitar, the guitar is $69.00 ad it comes with the second little square dongle thingy but it works.
If you look at the guitar for the guitar hero box, even the generic guitar that's made by Nyko, it says guitar hero on the box. it should say Guitar Hero ONLY...
Just return the cheap little $29.00 guitar and get the Rockband guitar and it will work. There are a series on sync procedures, try them all. Also go into the Rockbad game and sync the TV, basically you need t choose the TV type, rear projection, LCD, CRT etc... That will help the timing problems.
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.
