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...

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Lost my disk for fifa manager 10


Ever try the site: http://www.warez-bb.org ? Make an account (nothing personal). When you register, from the home page, go to Games, then scroll down to the search bar and search "Fifa manager 10". There are a bunch of links for it. I've been using the site for a while, it's pretty clean overall in my opinion.

Serial number for fifa manager 11 saying its invalid


I've also had this, I think since they have brought out Fifa Manager 13 or planned to they seem to have dumped all the serial authorisation codes at solidshield for fifa manager 11 or something - currently in the process of trying to get it sorted with EA online help - which I'd suggest you try through the EA website but expect a long delay in answering. So far all they have done is given me the digital version of the product - which wasn't what I was having difficulty with, Origin recognises the product code it is Solidshield which fails to authorise. Still awaiting further response from EA help (5 days of owning a game I can't play so far and have only received a 15% Origin discount off older games.) Brilliant...
