Question about Rock Band 3 Wireless Keyboard

1 Answer

I bought rock band 3 for wii. I plugged in the dongle for the keyboard and followed the sync instructions exactly. the lights flash on both devices, but when I let go of the sync buttons, the lights on the keyboard go off and the keyboard button has an x. I really would like to play this game, so any help is appreciated.

This can be frustrated the first few times. Here's the likely issue: the wii version will not activate the keyboard (or drums) if multiple wii remotes are active and all-instruments mode is not enabled.

The multiple wii remote thing: one remote is considered the microphone, and the rest guitar controllers (you can use the wii-remote based wingman and guitar hero guitars with this title). Once you get to two plus wii remotes on, you can't add more.

So, assuming one of your guitar controllers is active, use it to go into the menu system and turn all instruments mode on. Once done, a wii remote is no longer needed to be used for singing, and now singing will be turned on by default (but you can ignore it). Now, your drums and keyboard should work fine.

Eventually, the game smartens up and turns on this mode automatically for you, but the first few times it does not. I nearly threw the game out the window the first day or so.

    HI there! i have the same issue, and i follow your solution, but still the same, my drums works fine, it's only the kayboard which no't.

    Ok , i won't lie . My wii is hacked, so i don't know if that may is the issue, and if it is, can be solved just with buying the original game?.

    Hi there. If you are using a hacked Wii, and can change the IOS that the game uses, use IOS223. I have WiiFlow and I had the same problem, but looking on the internet, keyboards for this game use IOS223. Hope this helps.

Are you pressing the sync buttons on the component and then pressing the sync button on the console?It is under the large door on the front of the console.First press the guitar sync,then it should give you a couple of seconds to press the console sync.If the light goes to constant blue,it is synched.Do the same for the other component.Good luck and rock on!

Guitar will not sync


With the guitar turned on, go back and press the button on the receiver dongle (the part with a blinky blue light that plugs into the USB hub that plugs into the back of the WII).

Lights flashing on guitar and usb


If you are using the Fender Stratocaster Rock Band Guitar:

1) Ensure you have fresh batteries in the Wireless Guitar
2) Insert receiver into USB hub
3) Turn on Guitar via switch on back.
4) If both the guitar and the USB receiver is flashing blue, then press the guitar logo button until flashing blue light on the receiver stops flashing.

Note that on Rock Band 1, non-Rock Band guitars (ie: Guitar Hero and Wiimote based guitars) generally don't work.

Good luck!

Rock band guitar will not sync to wii


For me it was the white box that connects to the back of the wii. I tried everything from changing batteries in the guitar, to pressing white button on guitar, to restarting while holding white button down to screaming at the wii. Then I bought a new rockband guitar at best buy and the new guitar did not work until I swapped the white box (dongle?) that connects to the back of the Wii. One is for the drums and the other is for the guitars and mic. Hope this helps.

Rock Band Guitar -- flashing lights only -- won't connect


Hi!!! I had the SAME problem! My guitar would just blink and never sync with the wii. I finally got tired of waiting to hear from EA games for a replacement and took the thing apart! I was able to find the problem. One of the connections on the board was loose! If I pressed down on the loose connection it would sync! I had my husband re-solder it and now it works great! I've attached a picture of which connection was loose.
