Faulty Guitar Hero 3 Guitar?
Posted 16 November 2007 - 04:47 AM
In order to avoid future problems like that, I just went ahead and made my own guitar, no strum bar, no fret buttons. But 6 strings, Oh yeah!

I haven't been able to fix the Yellow Button coming on when I down-strum Green+Red. So I'm at a loss there.
Mine does the same thing and then when I hold blue+yellow I have to strum up as well. local store keeps putting me off since they don't have any guitars. also there are 2 other combinations, when I hold down 2 buttons they don't strum at all but all buttons by themselves work fine, I'm at work right now and I can't remember what all my faulty combinations are, our problem seems a little different than the others. I know on scorehero they have a whole lespaul problem thread but I've seen nothing to help people with our problem. If you figure anything out please post I will as well.

Thank you thank you thank you. Both my GH3 guitar and the RockBand guitar started acting up. Your fix worked great on the GH3 one. RB one is GOING BACK. But I don't like it that well anyway- MUSHY!!!
One thing to note is that if people have trouble getting the neck back together, check that the wiring harness isn't in the way of one of the screws going back in.

I opened up the body of the guitar, and then the neck. You'll find a circuit board similar to that found on the neck for the body.
I just cut the circuit boards off, after tracing the leads in the circuitry to match up which wire goes to which and then marked accordingly.
So then I just stripped each wire after pulling them apart from the ribbon form to make it easier, and soldered and taped them off. I ran into a successful ending, except I have lost response for the blue and yellow buttons, which I am going to work on later when I have time. But yeah, this also works if you want to just make sure it is a no-fail direct connection from button to wireless transmitter.
I think that the whole detachable neck thing is personally a bad idea. It's not like people will necessarily do it, I could see if the guitar was much bigger, then it would need that option possibly, but with a small guitar, I think it was a rushed end-development decision that needed to be thought through a lot more.
But yeah I might post pictures of the end result once I figure out why two of the eight wires aren't fully going through.

To all that have found this useful, you're very welcome. I hope you've been living your dreams as a rock star!
To all that have not found this useful (have there been any? lol), I'm very sorry! Good luck finding a solution.
Sorry I haven't really kept up with this thread!
Anyway, happy holidays and happy new year everyone!
