Receiver will not turn on for wireless guitar

I've changed the batteries in the guitar and the red light comes on, but when I press the button on the receiver, nothing happens. This guitar is the Ps 2 guitar hero 3 kramer. The receiver is a Red Octane.

I have torn 2 of these receivers apart and have ohm'd them out and found that the manufacturing process to put them together is very sub par.

On the two I had Capacitor c3 was off the board (smd). This is NOT a repairable problem if you don't have the low heat soldering equipment. Besides, you might correct one problem and find you have others because of the forceful procedures you have to do to get it apart.

Unfortunately the only thing you can do is buy a replacement (available at Red Octane's site[19.99]) or take a chance on EBAY sellers that claim to have the item [9.99].

Also, if you have a lot of time on your hands it is possible to hard wire the device (I do not have the pinouts). Pinouts should be online as I have seen several articles on it.

Hopefully I have given you some insight.

Had same problem - lights on but game taking no notice of controller. Just to exhaust all possibilities I swapped the controllers over so that the normal dual shock controller was in port 1 and the wireless receiver was in port 2 and weirdly it all seemed to work fine set up that way...

I cant connect my guitar to the ps3


1. First of all, make sure the batteries are in the guitar.
2. With your PlayStation 3 console powered off, insert the wireless receiver into an available USB connector on the console.
3. Press and hold the PS button on the guitar to turn it on.
4. Turn on your PlayStation 3 console.
5. Press the connect button on the wireless receiver (not the guitar). The status light will flash, indicating that the receiver is searching for the controller.
6. Press the PS button on the guitar to establish a connection with the receiver. (You may have to wait for the receiver to stop flashing so fast. I think it flashes real fast at first, but then slows down.)

Also, make sure the guitar is assigned as control port #1.

I hope that helps.

Another thing that may help. Unplug all your usb cords that recharge your headset or controllers. Make sure the USB connector is the only thing pluged in and in the furthest left slot. That is what i had to do.

Ensure that the receiver is plugged in to the USB port in back of the Wii Console. If the light on the receiver is blinking, too, then with the Guitar turned on, press the white button on the receiver.

Guitar Hero Flashing Sensor Lights


Hi there,

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.

hope it gets sorted !
