Explorer Strum Circuit Shorted Out

During play I experienced an electric shock from the strum button on my explorer guitar (wired) and now the strum button doesn't work. Is it possible to obtain a new strum button circuit board ?
These guitars are most difficult to find and the wireless appears to be highly problem ridden.
Any help would be most appreciated.

Nintendo Guitar only works consistantly when I strum up. Whe i strum down it seems to miss speratically. Only plays one of every 3-5 notes. This is the second guitar i have returned to Wal-Mart...WTF?

The guitar that were made for the first rock band have faulty strum bars that collapse on the inside, yes, even the guitars that were sold separately have this problem, send it in to harmonix for free, they will give you a new one, free of charge.

Guitar not working properly

Check the D-pad on the guitar. Sometimes it can get stuck slightly and can count for accidental strumming. Also be sure to keep the button pressed firmly when playing chords. It is very sensitive to touch.

Our wii RockBand guitar won't strum

If you got the Rock Band 2 guitar then you'll have the same problem as with the Guitar Hero: World Tour controllers. There seems to be a large number of faulty controllers. It is best just to take the controller back to the shop you purchased the game from and get a replacement controller. If you are feeling brave, you can take the faceplate off the controller and open it up to have a look at the connections on the strum bar, but you will void the warranty if you do. You can use the D-pad in the mean time to strum.

When playing guitar hero and pressing the corresponding color button, no sound is being made?

Play the tutorial before playing the game. It'll tell you how to play the game. If there is still no sound, it is possible that the strum bar on the guitar is broken, and you will need to have it replaced. You can use the D-pad on the guitar as an alternative to the strum bar, just to see if the guitar works.

3. push the strum bar down and blow along it.

4. push the strum bar up and blow along it.

5. get an ear stick and WD 40, spray a bit on the ear stick and wipe the sides of the strum bar.

6. test 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.
