For me it was the white box that connects to the back of the wii. I tried everything from changing batteries in the guitar, to pressing white button on guitar, to restarting while holding white button down to screaming at the wii. Then I bought a new rockband guitar at best buy and the new guitar did not work until I swapped the white box (dongle?) that connects to the back of the Wii. One is for the drums and the other is for the guitars and mic. Hope this helps.

Are you pressing the sync buttons on the component and then pressing the sync button on the console?It is under the large door on the front of the console.First press the guitar sync,then it should give you a couple of seconds to press the console sync.If the light goes to constant blue,it is synched.Do the same for the other component.Good luck and rock on!

Guitar will not sync

With the guitar turned on, go back and press the button on the receiver dongle (the part with a blinky blue light that plugs into the USB hub that plugs into the back of the WII).

Lights flashing on guitar and usb

If you are using the Fender Stratocaster Rock Band Guitar:

1) Ensure you have fresh batteries in the Wireless Guitar
2) Insert receiver into USB hub
3) Turn on Guitar via switch on back.
4) If both the guitar and the USB receiver is flashing blue, then press the guitar logo button until flashing blue light on the receiver stops flashing.

Note that on Rock Band 1, non-Rock Band guitars (ie: Guitar Hero and Wiimote based guitars) generally don't work.

Good luck!

How do i sync a guitar for the wii???

Ensure that the receiver is plugged into the back of the Wii or into the included 4-Port USB hub that is plugged into the back of the Wii.

Ensure you have fresh batteries installed in the guitar and that the power switch is set to "on".

Start up Rock Band using your Wiimote, and when the game is loaded, the receiver should stop blinking, and your "4 dots" should have one illuminated. If not, press the Rock Band logo button next to the four blue led lights.
