Try going to "redoctane.com" 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

I have a Wii Guitar Hero 5 Guitar strum bar squeaking badly.


Easy fix for an adult with average mechanical skills -- take the guitar apart (see below) and lube the strum bar with a bit of petroleum jelly. They SHOULD assemble these at the factory with some sort of lube, but it seems that they don't. Ours started squeaking badly after only two weeks.
<<<DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>
First, taking apart your guitar will VOID THE WARRANTY, so if you don't want to do that, contact the manufacturer to see what they'll do.
If you are no longer under warranty (or don't mind voiding it) remove the Wii remote: 1) Remove the Wii remote. Press the UNLOCK lever that's under where the Wii remote sits to remove the two parts that make up the guitar "body". They pop out first at the base near the 4-way directional. Just pop them back in (neck area first) to re-install. 2) Remove the "tuning" block by clicking the switch on the back to UNLOCK and pulling away from the neck. 3) Remove the 10 screws from the back of the guitar. NOTE: one is part of the strap hub on the neck. Also, the two at the very top of the neck are slightly smaller screws, so keep them separate from the rest. 4) Flip the guitar over and remove the tree screws from the cavity that holds the Wii remote. NOTE: one is under the "Warranty Void if Removed" sticker. 5) Using a flat plastic tool (like a plastic putty knife) CAREFULLY separate the two halves of the guitar body. I found it easiest to start at the bottom, where the strap connects. NOTE: (A) the bottom strap connector will come out as you separate the top of the body from the bottom. (B) Work your way to the neck slowly and carefully. You'll get there. (C) be sure to note how the spring loaded clip fits at the very top of the neck, it will fall out when you separate the two halves. When you put it back, the slanted part faces the top of the neck. *** WARNING: there's some wires, etc. inside. be sure not to damage anything as you take this apart. 6) Once inside the removal of the strum bar is pretty easy. Just take out the 4 screws from the circuit board. Next, remove the 4 screws that hold the bushings the strum bar fits into. 7) Once you have the strum bar switch out of the bushings, lube them with a bit of petroleum jelly. I just dipped a Q-Tip into the stuff and twirled it around inside the plastic bushing. Be fairly generous... you don't want to take your guitar apart again in a few weeks. Be sure to put all screws back in (two in each plastic bushing, 4 in the circuit board). Also, the screws were different sizes inside, so be sure to keep straight which screws go where. 8) Now just reverse everything you took apart. Your strum bar will be smooth as silk. Start at the very top of the neck (don't forget the little spring loaded latch--slanted part toward the top) and work your way to the bottom (don't forget to replace the strap holder.)
HINTS: Before you go crazy on the disassembly part, take some digital pictures as you go. Then if you get stuck and can't figure out where something goes you'll have something to fall back on.
We've been using our guitar for a couple of months after lubing it and it still is smooth and squeak free.

My wii Guitar Hero controller seems to strum of its own accord in the middle of a song... is this a sensitivity issue, and if so any ideas on how to fix it?


You may need to dis-assemble the guitar to ensure that no damage has occoured to the strum bar internally as sometimes when this gets over used it has a habit to randomly strum on its own. Good Luck.

Guitar hero wii controller plays notes of its own accord


I had the exact same problem on the wii guitar before, and tried replacing it which did no good. Then I realized on the solo part the touch slider was what kept strumming itself, so I turned off the slider and it worked! To turn off the touch slider, you have to go into a song and go to options and turn it off, which will keep it turned off until you change it. I'm not sure why it does it, I guess dust gets on it or something.

Hopefully this helps and have fun! :D

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.

Guitar hero world tour guitar connection


Try the following:
  • Verify that your guitar is connected to the PS3 by looking for the red indicator light above the strum bar.
    • If the indicator light is not lit please refer to the following page for directions on how to sync your guitar to the console.
  • Try disconnecting and reconnecting the wireless dongle, then restarting the system.
  • If the buttons are not functioning in the game or behaving oddly please press the lever on the back of the guitar at the base of the neck and remove the neck from the guitar. Then plug the neck back into the guitar.
  • Check to see if the guitar button in question is functioning in the Playstation 3 XMB (the strum bar should scroll you up and down, the fret buttons act like the buttons on the controller and are labeled on the side of the neck, etc)
  • If the strum bar is registering extra hits try keeping a finger on the strum bar while playing the game instead of flicking it with your fingers/hand.
  • Try replacing the batteries in the guitar.
If after trying all troubleshooting options you find that your Red Octane product is still non-functional, then you can submit a warranty replacement by selecting your country from the drop down below for the warranty submission information for your region. You can also call us at 1-800-229-6306 or 1-800-205-4713 in the US and Canada, but please note that this is for new warranty replacement requests only.
If your country is not listed in the drop-down below or you need help with an existing RMA then please click on "Ask a Question" in the tab above to submit an incident to us, and we will be able to help you with your issue.
