When my son tries to play his guitar all the lights are flashing on it and we cant figure out how to get it working..


The flashing lights on the controller mean the guitar is not connecting to the wireless usb dongle connected to the PS3.

1. Verify that the wireless box is plugged in firmly to the usb port on the front of the PS3.

2. If that doesn't work, look on the wireless usb dongle for the guitar hero guitar controller. (It should be a black box with the guitar hero logo on it. You will find a small push button on the dongle. (Make sure your PS3 is turned on, though your guitar hero game does not have to be open. It may be a good idea to have the game running, so you can test your guitar or make sure it is really working). Press and hold the button on the wireless usb dongle for a few seconds. Five seconds should be enough. Doing this attempts to re-connect the dongle and the controller. You will know when the connection is good when the red lights on the controller go steady, as well as the LED on the small button you pressed on the wireless usb dongle. If either lights continue to blink, there is a connection problem still.

3. Try changing the batteries in the guitar controller. Weak batteries tend to cause connection issues.

4. Test the wireless usb dongle and controller with another PS3. This will rule out an issue with your PS3 system.

5. If the problem still occurs on another PS3, the wireless dongle may have gone bad. (This does happen rarely.) Replacements are cheap to find on ebay

Guitar hero world tour guitar connection


Try the following:
  • Verify that your guitar is connected to the PS3 by looking for the red indicator light above the strum bar.
    • If the indicator light is not lit please refer to the following page for directions on how to sync your guitar to the console.
  • Try disconnecting and reconnecting the wireless dongle, then restarting the system.
  • If the buttons are not functioning in the game or behaving oddly please press the lever on the back of the guitar at the base of the neck and remove the neck from the guitar. Then plug the neck back into the guitar.
  • Check to see if the guitar button in question is functioning in the Playstation 3 XMB (the strum bar should scroll you up and down, the fret buttons act like the buttons on the controller and are labeled on the side of the neck, etc)
  • If the strum bar is registering extra hits try keeping a finger on the strum bar while playing the game instead of flicking it with your fingers/hand.
  • Try replacing the batteries in the guitar.
If after trying all troubleshooting options you find that your Red Octane product is still non-functional, then you can submit a warranty replacement by selecting your country from the drop down below for the warranty submission information for your region. You can also call us at 1-800-229-6306 or 1-800-205-4713 in the US and Canada, but please note that this is for new warranty replacement requests only.
If your country is not listed in the drop-down below or you need help with an existing RMA then please click on "Ask a Question" in the tab above to submit an incident to us, and we will be able to help you with your issue.

Cant get the game to start


First: Go to System settings. Scroll down to restore to factory default settings. Click on Yes and re-set them. Power down your PS3. Unplug the power cord from it for 2 minutes. While it is unplugged, unplug your wireless router for 30 seconds. Plug it back in. Now plug your PS3 back up and turn the power on. If this doesn't fix the isue then do the following: On your XMB dashboard, there will be two files. One is for game updates, the other is for game progress. Delete all of these for Guitar Hero. Turn the PS3 off. Turn it back on and re-install the update for the game. Any downloadable content that you paid for thru the Playstation can be re-downloaded for free! Yes, you will have to start your progress from square zero, but you will be able to play your game! If not then you ave other issues. If it is a Guitar Hero issue go to http://www.activision.com/guitarhero/support and start a RMA warranty request. If it is a PS3 issue, go to http://www.us.playstation.com and click support. Then click on service and see if your unit is still under warranty. (One year from purchase date-receipt required) Warranty claims for the PS3 generally take about 14 days! Fastest warranty service I have ever seen! Good Luck and Happy Gaming! If this fixed your problem, please rate how helpful it was!

PS3 Guitar Hero World Tour Microphone stopped working


POSTED @ 1713 (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) FEBRUARY 6, 2009 BY JOEBOBMCSLOB:


I know it's frustrating but here goes:

  1. Get a PS3 camera (PLAYSTATION EYE - is what mine says on the back). Not sure if it HAS to be the one from Sony (Playstation Eye) or if any other will work, but my PS3 camera from Sony I bought did work perfectly for this "crack"
  2. Unplug the Guitar Hero microphone and set it off to the side somewhere. IT MUST BE UNPLUGGED FROM THE PS3 FOR THIS TO WORK
  3. Go into the Guitar Hero game and plug in your PS3 camera, the blue light on the camera will come on
  4. Now plug in the Guitar Hero microphone
  5. Now go to the training mode, or start a band, or whatever you want and you will see that the vocals are enabled
  6. Simply unplug your PS3 camera and you can use the microphone that came with Guitar Hero, like you're supposed to be able to
I know this is a BAD, BAD, BAD experience for you to go through, but I think it had something to do with PS3 system updates after they released all the hardware and software for Guitar Hero III. Hopefully you didn't return all your gear already...

I don't work for Sony, I'm an electrical engineer/gamer hobby enthusiast.


Hope that helps!

Cheers!
