My husband has a WiiU. He was playing RockBand with the drums Saturday. Now, when he plugs them in, it shuts down the whole system. What could be causing it?

It sounds to me like there is a short in either the cable for the drums, or the port itself. Try plugging them into a different port. Also, try plugging something else into that same port. This will help you determine if it is the drums or console. JBGaming.com is a great resource for replacement parts and service.

Wii rockband drums having problems with switching it to on.


I have a harmonix wireless guitar and a wired drumset. Neither will respond, though they both show a blue light. I'm playing rockband 3 with rockband 1 instruments. Only the mic works and I have no idea why. Of course, I've tried new batteries in guitar, re-synced, powered on and off.. to no avail. Suggestions? Its a new in box set.

I bought drums at a garage sale. I thought they were for Rockband Wii. I bought Rockband 1 for Wii, but I can't get the drums to sync. The screen keeps indicating it can't detect a microphone,...


If the buttons that you have are 1, 2, A, B, then you have the Rockband drums for Wii (the ones for Xbox have X, Y, A, B). You don't need a microphone to play Rockband, you just need to have a Wii remote on when you start the game. That should get rid of the pesky "Can't Detect Microphone" message and let you get to the main game screen to play the rest of the game. Have fun!

DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE USB PLUG FOR THE ROCKBAND DRUMS FOR THE WII AND HOW DO YOU SYNC IT TO THE WII?


Yes, you do need to use USB for rockband drums for wii, but i don't know how to sync the drums, if they're wireless, if it's a wired set, just plug it in the back of the console, i know how to sync a wireless guitar, on the part you plug into the wii, there should be a tiny white button, and the guitar should have a white button on it, push both buttons at the same time (make sure that thee guitar has batteries and the other is in the wii), if done correctly you should be able to play, if the wireless drums work like that too, than i hope this info helped.

Can't play Rockband on my Ps3


Check the batteries in the music equipment. It sounds to me like the batteries are dead in the wireless equipment.

If that doesn't work, your PS3 may need serviced.

How to play wii rockband guitar, drums without the microphone


Was your mic hooked up when the system was turned on? The mic is probably signed in. The mic needs to be reconnected and signed out. Or reboot the whole system with what you want to use plugged in only.
