Re: Guitar

Turn the PS off, make sure the plug is in before you turn it on. Turn on the game and let it start to load before turning on guitar. After it has loaded for a couple of secs, turn on the guitar and wait for it to find the signal.

The manual also has some ideas for fixes if this does not work.

We have PS2. Guitar won't synch. Blue lights flash on guitar. Red light flashes on USB connector.

Red light flashes on USB connector: means the USB connection is bad or the Guitar is just not recognozed by your console.

The on/off switch won't turn on. i have power on (red light) switch clicks but no green light. i have taken lid off and white button seams on work but still no green light. i have even held down little...

This is one of three things. Unfortunately, it's difficult to determine which, unless you start replacing parts.

1. Bad switch. The switch doesn't usually go bad by itself, has the PS2 been dropped? Bumped? Anyone push the switch too hard? It's held in by solder on all 4 corners. If the solder becomes dislodged, the switch can fail.

2. Bad cable. This is rare unless someone opened the PS2 and removed/installed the cable a few times and frayed the internal wires.

3. Bad motherboard. Sometimes a power problem can develop, or the motherboard can short out. It's pretty rare, but I have seen it happen.

4. Bad AC adapter. Recent power surge? It's possible that the AC adapter is delivering enough voltage to power the standby light, but not enough to power the actual system on. You can easily check this by plugged your PS2 up on someone else's AC adapter or taking your AC adapter to someone else's PS2.

How do you connect a wireless guitar to a ps2the game is called guitar hero 2,

one make sure you plug in the wireless adapter first before turning the ps2 on

2) make sure the guitar is TURNED on, if it is you should see the red light on the guitar blinking

3) make sure that the guitar and wireless adapter are in sync, if they are not hold the adapter button down for at least 5 seconds and while still holding it done press any button on the guitar.

its work definitely....plz give feedback..thank you...have a nice day:)

My ps2 does'nt turn on when it's plugged on!!!!

Hey man, I had the same problem a few weeks ago, but not anymore! What's wrong is that a cable inside has become unattached, this cable controls the front buttons. What I did was open up the top of my PS2 and check the cable,(it should look like a strip of paper) if it is unattached then you have some work to do. Flip the Ps2 over and open the bottom up. You should see the motherboard and lots of other stuff. Ignore it. What you want is a small port on the side of the front buttons cleverly hidden under a metal box thingy. Plug the end of the cable in to the port. On my Ps2 it din not stay in, so I had the Ps2 on and wiggled the cable until both front lights light up. Then you need to fasten the cable down in the right position. I used Scotch tape, but you can use whatever you want, just as long as it holds it down IN A POSITION WHERE ALL LIGHTS LIGHT UP! If this does not work, then I got nothing, hope this helps! Here is a you tube video that might help!
