    My guitar from guitar hero III - Legends of Rock - the guitar would not play anymore so i thought it was due to flat batteries, i changed the batteries using duracell and the guitar still didn't work, the on and off switch on the guitar continued to blink.  The guitar was only bought for my sons birthday in October 2008 and within 6 weeks he couldn't play it.  Really disappointing!

Guitar hero wireless guitar with PS2, guitar sync light seems to flash normally, but the receiver on the PS2 seems completly dead, can we change just the receiver part ?

Yes you can change just the receiver. There isn't anything wrong with your guitar so just change the receiver. The wireless guitars work with any other PS2 wireless guitar hero guitar receivers.

If still no light then you can try and open the receiver and find the broken wire in it to make it work
or take it into a repair shop is simple part would b easy to find the problem and fix

Ps2 memory card

First of all, make sure the card is in slot one. I'm not sure about Guitar Hero 3, but I know many games default to searching the first slot (the one on your left as you look at the system).

Assuming that's not the problem, it could be a sign that your memory card is wearing out. Do you have a second memory card? If not, I suggest getting one. Either way, put one card in each slot, and go into the browser. Copy the Guitar Hero saves over to the other card, then put that card in slot 1 and see if it works. If it does, I suggest copying all your saved games over to the new card, and throwing the old one out before you lose any save games permanently.

No sound

i'm having the same problem. theyre not playing bass because it's on face off and pro face off too. it's also not the gh 3 disc because it does the same thing to me on gh 2 and rocks the 80s. it has something to do with the ps2.
