“ No matter what you do, the fret buttons on your guitar hero guitar won’t work”
If one of the fret buttons don’t work when you press down on them, then take the button that won’t work off and replace or clean the connector.
If the button is stuck, then take the button that won’t pop out and clean it off. If that does not work, the button may need to be replaced.
If all of the buttons are not working, then check the neck connection and the battery connection.
“No matter what you do, the neck connection isn’t working”
Check the connection between the neck and the rest of the guitar. If it can not form a connection then the guitar sensor on the bottom of the neck may need to be replaced.
If the neck is definitely forming a connection to the guitar, then take sure the controller is working/turning on.
“ No matter what you do, the strummer will not respond”
If the stum doesn’t rebound after you hit it, then the strummer will need to be replaced.
If the game doesn’t read the command when you strum, then there may be a connection problem inside the guitar to be fixed or possibly replaced.
If the game is not picking up on your commands, then the guitar might not be connected to the console.
“The whammy bar is loose or doesn’t work in game”
The wire connecting the whammy bar to the motherboard is loose making the whammy bar inconsistent, may need to be reconnected or replaced.
If whammy bar is loose it may need to be tightened or have a shim added in to add resistance to its movement.
Whammy bar connection is bad and the connection may have to be fixed or replaced or the lever or spring that it uses needs to be fixed or replaced.
Hot glue works best for reattaching the whammy bar.
“No matter what you do, the guitar won’t turn on”
It may sound simple, but one or both of the batteries may not have any power in them, so they might just need to be replaced.
If part of the positive or negative part of the battery pack are damaged or broken, it may need to be replaced.
