My Rock Band 2 wireless Fender guitar controller recently stopped accepting down strokes on the strum bar and the equivalent direction on the guitar's D-pad. The guitar is about 18 months old. I've read several articles online that indicate it could be the microswitch on the strum bar but that doesn't seem to fit with the D-pad also being ineffective.
Has anyone else experienced this and is there an easy fix? I'm adept at soldering, if necessary.
