Re: xbox360 guitar hero2 controller

You have a bad control, in this case. Go to RedOctane's site for warranty service:

If you should actually be using the Rock Band Fender Stratocaster control, it will not work with Guitar Hero and, furthermore, this issue has been reported to exist with early runs of this control. Rock Band issues can be resolved here:

My strum bar for Guitar Hero 3 isn't working anymore !!! We powered everything off and back on and checked the connections. We still have the problem. Any ideas ?

Try going to "" Activision is only the distributor, and fix it. redoctane will. They're a little sticky on their "guidelines" for the warranty though. They want the original receipt. I can't find the receipt 5 minutes after I get home. Let alone 2 months later. If you still have it you're golden. If not try arguing with them, they'll probably fix it for you. apparently it's an on going problem they're having. Good luck

My guitar wont work properly

my scroll bar does the same thing sometimes, it moves up and down uncontrolably without me doing anything. i just recomend restarting and making sure the connections are all right. after i did that it seemed to work fine, but maybe if it keeps happening then you may need to replace it!!

The strum button is uncontrolable

Hey Omega,

Seems like the controller may just be faulty.

The only thing I can think of, is to turn off the console, and then make sure none of the buttons are being pressed when starting it up, and then turn it on. If it's still doing it, I recommend getting a new controller.

Sync the controller. Press and hold the sync button on the controller, and go over to the Xbox 360 console, and press and hold the Xbox 360 console sync button. Wait for a few seconds or until the controller lights stop blinking. Then test out the controller.
