    Rock Band instruments don't work on replaced Wii

    So, I had a Wii a while back, bought it like 2 years ago. It was working find with my Rock Band 3 drums and guitar.

    I swapped it out for a replacement through Best Buy and they gave me a refurbished system, I think it's older. I did the soft mod, same as my previous Wii, but my Rock Band instruments won't work now. The dongles will detect the instrument and show the light and all, but the instrument buttons don't do anything in the game or even in the Wii menus. Also, I have to turn the Wii on with the dongles plugged in while the instrument is turned on as well. If I press the buttons on the dongle to "detect" the instrument, to sync up with it, the dongle will turn itself off and doesn't function until I restart the Wii again.

    Any ideas? Is this a Wii problem, not compatible with the newer Rock Band 3 instruments, or is it a softmod issue that I need to update something?

    That didn't work. The dongle and instruments are synced, and they work just fine, but the buttons and all do NOTHING in menus or game.

    It doesn't work on another Wii I have either, which is also an older Wii.

    I know the instruments work though. I can plug them into a PS3 and move around menus (unfortunately they only act as a regular controller so I can't use them for it).

    If you would have followed the softmod any wii guide, your instruments would work. You need to load the game with either d2x v8 cIOS with a base of 56, or hermes v4 cIOS with a base of 37+38 merged.

    It would be easier to tell you what # you have those installed, if you followed the softmod any wii guide. You can post a system check, and we can see what you have installed.
    Or update your softmod with said guide (link in spoiler below). Then load the game with 249 or 223.

    I did follow the guide, and the game loads with 249, but the instruments still don't work.

    I tried the instruments on an older wii, not my own, with the same mod from that guide, and the instruments don't work. I also modded my sisters system the same way, with the same guide you linked (older I'm sure), and my instruments work just fine on her system.

    I'll play around with it some more.
