How to Connect a Wireless Guitar on PS2


Rhythm-based games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero make use of a guitar-shaped controller that lets even the most musically challenged individuals get a taste of rock-stardom. While these guitars originally connected via a wire to your game console's controller port, wireless controllers are available, giving you more freedom to move without worry of yanking your PlayStation 2 from the wall. Connecting a wireless guitar on the PS2 is easy, taking only a few seconds to complete.

Things You'll Need

  • Batteries
  • PlayStation 2
  • Wireless receiver (included with guitar)
  • Wireless guitar controller
  • Check the wireless guitar's batteries. Without batteries, the guitar won't work or connect to the console. The battery port is usually found on the back side of the guitar behind a small, clip-on door. Most wireless guitars run on AA batteries, but yours may be different. Refer to the user manual or check the battery port itself to determine the batteries you need.

  • Insert the guitar's wireless receiver into the PlayStation 2's first controller port or second controller port. This designates whether the guitar is assigned to the first or second player in-game.

  • Power on your PlayStation 2.

  • Press the connect button located on the wireless receiver. Depending on the brand of guitar you're using, a light may blink on the receiver after the button is pressed.

  • Press the connect button on the guitar immediately after pressing the button on the receiver. In some cases, the guitar has a designated button to connect to the console. In other cases---for instance, if your guitar lacks a connect button---all you have to do is press any button on the guitar to connect. Your guitar is now synced to your PlayStation 2.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have trouble connecting the guitar to the wireless adapter, try starting the game before connecting or inserting fresh batteries into the controller.
