I had the same problem but with trial and error i came up with a soulution
1. Turn on the Playstation 3 2. Plug the dongle for the drum set into an open port on the PS3, the light will begin to flash slowly. 3. Hold down the button (where the light is flashing) on the dongle until it begin flashing very rapidly. Release the button and the light continues to flash rapidly. 4. Hold down the PS button on the drum set until the red light starts flashing rapidly. 5. Within a few seconds you will get a solid light on both the Guitar Hero World Tour Drum Set and the Playstation 3.

just use the guitar as drums & use the drums as a guitar... nah just jokes you won't be able to fix that unless you get some pro guy to repair but it'll cost you around the same price you brought it. goodluck though...
I've had the same problem, the guitars for this guitar hero are terrible, they were apparently rushed by Sony; ive researched the problem and apparently you can get a "dongel" or something, it's supposed to keep it connected, look into one.
It seems that the recent PS3 Firmware update (2.80) reassigns your controllers. In order to fix this (I just did it 20 minutes ago and all is fine) is: Go to the XMB "Settings" Menu. Open "Accessory Settings" Using the controller you want to reassign, open "Reassign Controllers" Scroll to the number you want that controller to be (1,2,3 or 4) You are good to go!
Thanks to the Phone Help at Activision for this fix!
Go to the redoctane website and start a RMA warranty replacement process. You can find the site by typing: http://www.guitarhero.com . Click on the Guitar Hero World Tour site. Then click on support. it should direct you to redoctane's site who manufactures the units. There has been a rash of bad strum bars on the World Tour game. It took almost 2 months to get my new guitar from them. But it was worth the wait! The new guitar is sooo awesome! Good Luck! If it has been over 90 days, you have went over the warranty period.

I know it's frustrating but here goes:
Get a PS3 camera (PLAYSTATION EYE - is what mine says on the back). Not sure if it HAS to be the one from Sony (Playstation Eye) or if any other will work, but my PS3 camera from Sony I bought did work perfectly for this "crack"
Unplug the Guitar Hero microphone and set it off to the side somewhere. IT MUST BE UNPLUGGED FROM THE PS3 FOR THIS TO WORK
Go into the Guitar Hero game and plug in your PS3 camera, the blue light on the camera will come on
Now plug in the Guitar Hero microphone
Now go to the training mode, or start a band, or whatever you want and you will see that the vocals are enabled
Simply unplug your PS3 camera and you can use the microphone that came with Guitar Hero, like you're supposed to be able to
I know this is a BAD, BAD, BAD experience for you to go through, but I think it had something to do with PS3 system updates after they released all the hardware and software for Guitar Hero III. Hopefully you didn't return all your gear already...
I don't work for Sony, I'm an electrical engineer/gamer hobby enthusiast.
