Guitar Hero II Replacement Cord Xbox 360

Microsoft doesn't sell the usb replacement cord and I'm too cheap to buy something that i can obtain for free. But, does anyone know what the fifth wire in the cord from the guitar to the xbox is. Should be the blue one. I have searched the nvidia motherboard and got nothing. I have an old usb (with only 4 wires) and can easily hook it up but don't want to fry anything.

SOURCE: guitar hero II controller doesnt play

For the 3 other users with the same problem, your problem can be solved by playing on a different Television or hooking up a VCR or DVD player to your TV and putting your xbox 360 into it. Or maybe your AV cables are just broken, On the AV cables there is a Yellow Wire, a Red Wire, and a White wire... All three have to be plugged in to recieve full sound.

My new black x box 360 elite will not pair with wireless guitar hero guitar this worked fine with my last x box 360 which failed with the ring of death

Wireless guitar may have been damaged and if so you might have to buy a new controler for guitar hero . Its not the xbox 360 its the Wireless guitar the If sensor is either broken of a loose wire inside the guitar is causing the problem . If the problem persist do NOT open the guitar go buy a used one from gamestop or online . Amazon has cheap replacements around 10-15$ depending what wireless guitar your buying .

Faulty usb port?

From your description it does sound like your Xbox 360 USB port is shot or you have just racked up the hours on three different guitar hero guitars. Not to doubt your skills or the dedication any of us have to the game I am just leaning towards it being the USB port. Here is the link to the Microsoft run down of how to eliminate the possible problems.

If you were still under warranty this would be the check list they would have you go through prior to taking the console back. I am assuming that since you have gone through three different guitars you were switching out the USB connector to see if you had a faulty connection on the cord connecting your guitar to your actual box. If you haven't checked this you could potentially solve the problem with $5 and a trip to best buy.

If you have already checked this I would check out this site that offers the manual on how to repair your Xbox. They have step by steps on how to solve just about any Xbox 360 and Playstation problems. Here is the link to the overall tutorial:">
In particular here is a link of fitting a standard USB port into your machine in case you feel like Frankensteining it:">
