Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hey everybody. I think something may be wrong with usb port on my xbox (where you plug in controllers). I've had 3 guitar hero controllers randomly stop working. Each time, the controller was only a few weeks old and had not sustained any kind of damage. The controller would work one day and the very next day, either the fret buttons wouldn't work or the strum bar wouldn't work for no particular reason. I believe it is my xbox because the controllers were new, but I could be wrong. The xbox is not in warranty. If anybody has had the same problem or knows how to fix it, let me know. Thanks!!
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. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907585
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:
