Question about Nintendo Wii Rock Band Guitar for Wii

Wii Rockband wireless guitar controller light not coming on

When my son and I went to play Rockband tonight, the guitar turned on (blue lights on) but the light on the white square box for the wireless controller is not coming on. We've tried everything, starting with turning everything off. It for some reason is also showing up on the screen that it's detecting the microphone, but it won't detect the guitar. I thought maybe there's a dead battery in the controller box, and opened it, but no battery. Can I replace the small square white box (the remote controller box.?)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I got my daughter Wii

Rock Band is a 4 player game, each player taking their own role. They can choose from Guitar, Bass, Drums or Microphone. If your daughter wants to play guitar and sing at the same time, she will need to play a multiplayer game and use 2 Mii profiles, one for guitar and one for singing. 
A single player cannot play 2 instruments using the same Mii either. You must use separate profiles.

SOURCE: Wii Rockband guitar lights keep blinking

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.

Unfortunately, the guitar that comes with the Guitar Hero does not work with Rock Band or Rock Band 2. Rock Band, as you mentioned, recognizes the Wiimote as the controller for the microphone.

Unfortunately, you will have to get a guitar that is specifically designed for Rock Band.

Call me crazy, but we had the same issue and just for kicks, tried hooking it up the way the book says for GH. It worked. Don't use the USB receiver, just put the controller in the back of the guitar, and give it a shot. The controller and receiver are NOT designed to work together, it is one or the other.

Rockband - WII - wont let me add more than one band member!!!


When starting up Rock Band, make sure that no more than one Wiimote is activated (two if you are using one for a bass/guitar). If any are, they will over ride the drums and guitar in priority.

Make sure that only the drums, wireless guitar, microphone (controlled by the Wiimote) and 2nd guitar (whether the fender type with built in wireless OR, but NOT AND, a 2nd guitar that uses a Wiimote).

If more than the max number of wiimotes are turned on when you power up the game, reset your console, and wait to start Rockband until the other wiimotes no longer show a light.

Good luck!`

Rockband 2 wireless guitar connection


You need to sync the guitar to his console, just like a regular controller.
There's a sync button on the console, and the controller.  Press them both at the same time, and give it a minute.  That'll pair the console up with the guitar, and it'll work after that.

Can't use drums for rockband on guitar world tour


The instruments for Rock Band and GH:WT are compatible on the PS3 and the Xbox 360, not the Wii. Blame Activision, the creators of GH:WT - they went a different route with hardware for the Wii that made things incompatible.
