    I'm having the same problem. I have 2 xplorers bought new Nov 08. The first one happened a few weeks ago where it was working just fine and the next time I tried to use it the green fret didn't work. I moved to the other controller that hadn't seen hardly any playing time and when I was about to put it down I got a message that the controller was disconnected even though it was still connected. I went ahead and unplugged it and plugged it back in and then the green fret, blue fret and the down strum no longer worked.....Could my xbox somehow be causing this problem?

I don't know your level of technical know-how, but I would take the controller apart and check the wiring to those buttons. Maybe the wire broke since they are two of the most used buttons. If you are not comfortable doing that, call the manufacturer, since the controller is $50, the repair can't cost too much.

My guitar hero III guitar works but the green button sometimes go out. like when i have to hold a long fret it goes out and sometimes the green button wont work on the regular frets

I have the same problem with my guitar, when it really starts to act up I just pull out the upper piece and blow on the connectors, it works a little better after that but then it starts dying again. I'm pretty sure that your controller is just starting to die. Sorry
