I bought rock band 3 for wii. I plugged in the dongle for the keyboard and followed the sync instructions exactly. the lights flash on both devices, but when I let go of the sync buttons, the lights on...


This can be frustrated the first few times. Here's the likely issue: the wii version will not activate the keyboard (or drums) if multiple wii remotes are active and all-instruments mode is not enabled.

The multiple wii remote thing: one remote is considered the microphone, and the rest guitar controllers (you can use the wii-remote based wingman and guitar hero guitars with this title). Once you get to two plus wii remotes on, you can't add more.

So, assuming one of your guitar controllers is active, use it to go into the menu system and turn all instruments mode on. Once done, a wii remote is no longer needed to be used for singing, and now singing will be turned on by default (but you can ignore it). Now, your drums and keyboard should work fine.

Eventually, the game smartens up and turns on this mode automatically for you, but the first few times it does not. I nearly threw the game out the window the first day or so.

2 synch lights on ALL music controllers after PSN v2.8 update


You have to manually sync the instruments. While playing press the PS button go to settings, accesory settings and assign each controller individually a number from 1-4.

Ps3 guitar hero controller lights up two lights for controller numbers wont work any help?


From Activision's Support site:

The 2.80 firmware update causes the Guitar Hero instruments to connect to the Playstation with a high controller number. As a result Guitar Hero will not recognize the instrument at launch. To remedy this you will need to change the controller assignment in the Playstation 3 XMB system menu.

In the XMB go to Settings->Accessory Settings->Reassign Controllers. From here you will be able to change the controller number. Assign your first instrument to controller number 1 and increment the controller numbers for any additional instruments that you have connected. If you are using a microphone make sure to connect a standard PS3 controller before launching the game.

Can't use drums for rockband on guitar world tour


The instruments for Rock Band and GH:WT are compatible on the PS3 and the Xbox 360, not the Wii. Blame Activision, the creators of GH:WT - they went a different route with hardware for the Wii that made things incompatible.

Rock Band Guitar -- flashing lights only -- won't connect


Hi!!! I had the SAME problem! My guitar would just blink and never sync with the wii. I finally got tired of waiting to hear from EA games for a replacement and took the thing apart! I was able to find the problem. One of the connections on the board was loose! If I pressed down on the loose connection it would sync! I had my husband re-solder it and now it works great! I've attached a picture of which connection was loose.

Syncing with Rock Band.


From Harmonix spokesperson: "Support for the GHIII guitar peripherals in Rock Band on the Wii was not possible without Activision's permission. Therefore, any questions regarding lack of compatibility with GH III hardware should be directed to Activision."
