    caught in a mosh...
    my brother got Guitar Hero 3 with the wireless guitar controller for Christmas and we are having problems with it. heres the problems we are having:

    - first off, i had to stand about 2 feet from the PS2 in order to get the thing to get signal from the guitar to the wireless thing to play it. we've changed batteries and it still doing it.

    - second problem is, i was playing a song and the keys stopped working on the neck of the guitar. the strum bar worked as well as the other 2 buttons on the guitar.

    anyone encounter this and if so what did you do? im half tempted to have him take it back and get a new one. right now hes using mine that has the chord attached to the guitar and its the kind that hes wanting instead of the wireless. thanks for the ideas and suggestions...

    try plugging in the guitar before you turn it on. also, try putting the wireless adapter into "slot a" then try it in "slot b". if that still doesn't work, i would save your time an djust return it.

    only a couple buttons worked on the GH3 display at wal-mart the other day. I don't think they check the wireless controllers for functionality before they ship them out. and why does the spring on the whammy bar break so fast?

    What do you care brian? You miss half the notes anyway. :p

    Anyway, take it back. My brother had a wireless first on his 360 and it never worked.

    for the xbox 360? You did try hitting the connect buttons on the controller and console, right? (just making sure) We were having problems at Gregs' until we simply hit those buttons.

    When I got GH3 for xmas the wireless guitar did not work either, the strum and start/select buttons worked fine but the buttons on the fret didn't work at all. I tried everything... taking the neck and inserting it back in, switching the wireless connector from port A to port B, switching the batteries... I finally gave up and exchanged it. Second time around I've had no problems with it. I guess there are a lot of defective ones because, like khrisb said, maybe they don't test them before they ship them. I'd just return it and hope you get a good one.
