troubleshooting

Hey, just joined as I have a question. The basics:

- Just bought GH3 bundle pack for the PS2 with the wireless controller. Took about 3 seconds to get addicted.
- Wanted to be able to do duets and player vs. player, so I went to a local bookstore and picked up a used wired controller. Works fine, no problems there.

The problem: We wanted to be able to play a larger selection of music, so today I ran over to Target and bought Guitar Hero 2. But the game does not recognize 3 of the 5 fret buttons on either controller, meaning that during game play, only the blue and orange buttons work. I put GH3 back into the system and they work fine, both the GH3 wireless and the used wired controller.

Anyone have ideas what's going on?

Oddly enough, after a bit of tinkering I have the wireless GH3 controller working fine now, but the wired one (which I'm almost certain is from GH2) is still a no go.

Bizarre.

I'm having the same problems. I tried playing Rock the 80's, it works in the menu but not during gameplay. And for GH 1, doesn't work anywhere. What things did you do to get it to work?

Guitar Compatibility Chart

I'm assuming the GH3 wireless for the PS2 is the Kramer, which should work for all versions of Guitar Hero (on the PS2).

There have been issues with the detachable necks on the GH3 wireless guitars causing problems, but I thought it was limited to the wireless Les Pauls which are PS3, Xbox and Wii only. Plus it makes no sense why it worked fine with GH3 and was flaky with GH2. At least its working now.

The one from Target sounds like a third party guitar. If that's the case, check the box or the website (if it has one) for compatibility. I'm scared to try a third party guitar, the few I've picked up just didn't fit right in my hands.
