Guitar problems

I was playing guitar hero 3 on hard and failed. I relized that the yellow button would not work. I tryed again on the song. I would push down on the button and nothing. I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem. Or how to fix it.

Try reconnecting the fret board and the guitar. Or use the rubber band trick if your fret board is a bit loose (rubber band on the knob on the fret to the knob on the body end).

That happened with my friend's green button. If you kept your receipt then you can take it back and get a new guitar.

I've had a few problems with GH3 playing with the x-plorer. Sometimes my strums register as two strums, which is really annoying when trying to FC songs. I'm not sure if it's to do with the game or the guitar because I never had this problem in GH2.

I just had mine quit out on me, none of the buttons work and it wont turn on at all. I was 97% through One on Medium which I've been trying to do for days and it just quit on me. I have the Explorer guitar but don't have my receipt because I bought it with Guitar Hero II. Looks like I'm off of GH III for a while because it's no fun with the regular controller.

And I was so close to finally beating One by Metallica too, I had 3 percent to go and was in the mid green. That's a kick strait to the nuts.

Mine had some weird problems the other day.

In the middle of songs, I wouldn't even have a button pressed (not a fret nor the strum) and all of the sudden the guitar would strum itself and I would lose my streak. It happened continuously but did it every so often, messing me up.

I disconnected the neck, blew into it; disconnected the faceplate and blew into the actual guitar; and I replaced the batteries.

Hasn't done it again. So try all of those if your guitar is messing up.

I found the recipe, do i need to return the game and guitar or just the guitar. I hope that gamestop will take it and give me a new guitar and i don't have to wait a week for a new shipment to come in.
