Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Can't play Rockband on my Ps3

My RockBand on PS3 is not picking up the instraments now. I have changed nothing, but now it does not show any instraments, no mater which usb slot i plug them into.
I have an 80G PS3 with the four usb ports in front. It is not a battery problem, because the drums dont show on the game either.
The little "PS" button on the guitars and drums does light up, and I can use them to exit the game. They just dont show up for use on the game.

What is wrong?

My Rockband has the same problem. It refuses to read the instruments except for the "P" button that allows me to access admin. Which is even worse, since that means the signals are getting through but the instruments themselves are useless.

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.

Best Regards,

My guiter will communicate with the frontman but it doesn't control the playstation. I have tried every way undere the sun to sink and it seems to sink with the fromtman cause it shows what color i am...


1. You need 3 other controllers besides the Nyko guitar (they can be the rockband instrument set, or just any PS3 controllers. I used a DS3 a RB guitar and GH3 guitar)
2. You need all 3 of the controllers assigned to the PS3 taking up spot 1-3 except the Nyko guitar (goal is to assign the Nyko to 4 or higher)
3. Plug in the Nyko dongle and attempt to link with the guitar (it will most likely make the Nyko button turn red which is the color that won't play)
4. Turn the switch on the dongle back and forth once or twice ending on GH setting letting the guitar link on it's own (It may not assign correctly on the first try, but keep switching between Rockband setting and GH setting. Always end on GH, because it will work with Rockband on GH setting)
5. After a few times it should link and allow you to play

Problem is the firmware of the PS3 (V3.10 or higher)

Rockband for PS3 loads but instruments don't work


I recommend that you go to SONY's website and consult them, but I would think if it can be an at home fix it would be to reload and install an update, or to "flash" the "firmware". Using those terms with tech support might move you a little further along.

Hope this helps,

Try connecting the ps3 using the analogue cable ( ones it came with red&white) & change the audio settings in system settings, if its connected to an amp try updating its firmware .Or try to update ps3 firmware (maybe audio bug)
