I had this issue myself today when I borrowed Guitar Hero III and the wireless guitar from a friend. Luckily I decided to scour the internet before I got so pissed that I broke an accessory that isn't mine.

There are TWO buttons that you have to push to connect a new wireless device to your 360 that isn't connecting automatically.

Step 1
There is a small white button on the face of the 360 just to the right of the controller wire ports. Press and hold this button until the light on your 360 starts to flash. This puts your system into pairing mode. When this happens:

Step 2
There is a small inconspicuous button on the bottom of the guitar near the strap connection When you press and hold this one you will see the lights around the x-box symbol flash in a circle.

If this does not solve your problem, chance are that you are indeed F*@KED and have to return yet another Microsoft product.

Lol, i had this same prob with a 360 i repaired. When i went to test it out, the guitar would just blink and the xbox wouldn't pick it up. I know the guitar works cause i use it on my own xbox. I found that when putting the 360 back together after repairs, i used the wrong screw in one of the holes near the memory card ports. If you pay attentioin, theres a shorter screw with some wound plastic at the end that goes into the hole just to the right of the m card ports. Just removed the steel screw i had in there and it worked fine. Didn't bother to even put a screw back in.

My new black x box 360 elite will not pair with wireless guitar hero guitar this worked fine with my last x box 360 which failed with the ring of death

Wireless guitar may have been damaged and if so you might have to buy a new controler for guitar hero . Its not the xbox 360 its the Wireless guitar the If sensor is either broken of a loose wire inside the guitar is causing the problem . If the problem persist do NOT open the guitar go buy a used one from gamestop or online . Amazon has cheap replacements around 10-15$ depending what wireless guitar your buying .

XBOX 360 wireless guitar doesnt connect to system & dont know why

Power on your Xbox console and allow it to load to the Xbox dashboard.

Press the green Xbox controller on the guitar. All four lights surrounding the button should start flashing.

Press the connect button on your Xbox console (It's next to the Memory Card #2 slot).

Press the wireless button on the "Guitar Hero 3" guitar (Look for the on the bottom of the guitar).

Wait for the four lights to stop flashing, with one light becoming a solid green. Your air guitar should now be connected remotely to the Xbox.

Just got the xbox 360 guitar hero world tour for christmas. We got the drums and guitar working with no problems, but the microphone wont work. Is that supposed to plug directly into the console?

What you need to do is plug the microphone into the xbox 360, then you need to connect a regular 360 controller to the xbox... there are not any buttons on the microphone which is why the controller is needed.
