    I'll push one of the buttons down, and the red light on the guitar keeps blinking. The one on my ps2 won't, but my guitar it does.

Try turning off your guitar and pushing and holding the button on the receiver in for 5 to 10 secs. Turn on guitar and they should be sync'd. If that doesn't work, turn off PS2 disconnect from power supply for a minute or so, plug everything back in and sync the receiver and the guitar again.

    i did that and it didn't work still..
    but like my guitar doesn't have an on and off switch.
    the guitar will like up and everything when you push a button but the thing that goes in the ps2 isn't lighting up at all. but the other guitar works.
    i think maybe the wiring is messed up in the connector thing.?

The guitar kit for the PS2 has a small black box with a button on it to initiate sync, and connects via a short USB cable. I was missing this when I purchased my guitar. If you bought it new I would return/exchange it.
