PS3 Guitar Controller 2d button releasing on its own, can it be fixed?
My son's PS3 Guitar Hero Controller's second button on the fretboard is not acting quite right. He presses it and it may work, or if he's holding the note it may simply release itself even though he's still got it pressed. Sometimes it says it's pressed when another button is pressed. Is there something I can do to fix it or will he just need another controller?

The trouble is that this isn't a frequent problem nor is it a frequent product, however:
You could try opening up the guitar and checking the soldering/wirin
Just something to note... When I opened my controller I noticed that the plastic rocker triggers 2 steel switches, one for the up stroke and one for a down stroke, the plastic on the rocker switch had worn down where it is in contact with each switch, to a point where they were no longer pressing the switches correctly.
swiftly repaired with some superglue and a split matchstick.
