It appears your phone might not be syncing up with the headset since there might not be any signal at all. Do you have some one else's head set you might be able to borrow in order to test this possible problem? Maybe even stop by a mall phone booth to see if the blue tooth head set they have there for demo will sync up with your phone [besides you can always walk away after you test that and not buy anything just dont tell them before hand..].

See if this helps figure out the problem. It's one of the ways to test the problem and find a solution.

Let me know how it goes!

p.s. sorry it has taken so long for some one to get back to you. Let us know if you found a solution to this problem already in the mean time!

Music player through my bluetooth


Hi Mike Cronk,

I see that you have a Bluetooth Headset and that you are tryingto connect it to your BB.

You mentioned it will not play or you cannot hear Audio From it from your BB?

Did the Bluetooth Headset sync to your BB? you need to make sure that the headset is sync properly on your BB and that the BB is dectecting your Bluetooth Headset. make sure that the BB is also set to be detected by any device for the Bluetooth to detect your BB as well for proper syncing of both devices.

try your Bluetooth headset on another devices as well see if it will sync to a different device just to see if the Bluetooth headset is working fine.

I hope this helps,

I am unable to sync my Mad Catz bluetooth to my PS3 and I can't find my bluetooth manual. How do I sync up?


Please see the sync details below:

Pairing is a process of associating Bluetooth devices with each other. It will establish a permanent security link between the devices and enable quick access to the services provided without the need to re-enter Pass Keys. You will only need to pair your PS3 and the Headset once.

Paired devices remain paired even when:
-One of the devices is powered off.
-A service connection is interrupted or stopped.
-One or both devices are restarted.

Pairing the Headset with the PS3
Before the Headset can be used with the PS3, the two devices must be 'paired' so they can communicate with each other. Use a gaming controller for this procedure and ensure that the Headset is powered on (flashing blue LED light) and that it is not being charged via USB cable.

1. Power on your PS3 console.

2. Within the "Settings" menu, press X on "Accessory Settings."

3. Press X on the icon labeled: "Manage Bluetooth® Devices."

4. Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: "Register New Device."

IMPORTANT: Depending on your model of the 8860 Bluetooth® Headset, your power button is either an oval shape with an icon of a circle with a line going through it (5a) or it is a button with a phone icon (5b). Please follow the appropriate next step depending on your model of the 8860.

5a. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by holding down the K1 button until the LED flashes Blue and Red (hold K1 approx 12 seconds).

5b. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by tapping the pairing button located next to the volume controls on the side until the LED flashes BOTH Blue and Red.

6. Once the Headset's LED indicator is alternately flashing Blue and Red (indicating the Headset is ready to be paired), press X on "Start Scanning."

7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will recognize all Bluetooth devices within range.

8. Locate "8860" from the list of available devices and press X on its icon to be prompted for a Pass Key

9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass Key and press X on OK

10. You should then be taken to a new screen stating: "Register completed"

.

Trouble Shooting



Q. The PS3 is unable find the Headset.
A. If the Headset has been paired with another Bluetooth device, the PS3 will have trouble finding the Headset. Either remove the Headset from the paired device or turn off the Bluetooth power on the paired device.

Q. The Headset cannot be activated after being charged for 20 minutes.
A. To activate the Headset, the battery needs to charge for at least 40 minutes. It is highly recommended to fully charge the battery before use.

Q. No indication of charging is shown.
A. If the Headset battery is empty or has not been used for a long time, it may take some time for the Headset LED indicator to show charging status with a steady Red light. Make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on. The 8860 cannot charge without the console being turned on.

Q. No sound can be heard from the Headset.
A. Please make sure of the following:

-Make sure that the two devices have been paired.
-Make sure that the Headset is turned on.
-Make sure that the two paired devices are within 30 Ft. (9.15 meters) of each other.

*** Do not try to pair the headset to the PLAYSTATION 3 when the headset is attached to the USB cable. If it is attached to the USB cable when trying to pair up, it won't pair with the PLAYSTATION 3. ***

How do i sync my mad catz blue tooth headset to my ps3?


You'll need your controller, console, and headset to do this. Make sure your headset is off before you start, then follow these simple steps.

  2. Within the "settings" menu, press X on "Accessory Settings"
  3. Press X on the icon labeled: "Register Bluetooth Device"
  4. Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: "Register Headset/Microphone/Headphones"
  5. Prepare the headset to be paried by holding down the main buttong for 8 seconds.
  6. Once the LED flashes blue and red (indicatin the headset is ready to be paried), press X on "Start Scanning"
  7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will list all Bluetooth device visisble and within range.
  8. Locate your headset ID, most likely "8860" or something similar, and press X on it's icon.
  9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass key and hit OK.
  10. Now enjoy your synced headset!
If any part of this confuses you, you can find the manual for your headset online here. You'll need a PDF reader to view the file. There are plenty of free ones on the web, but if you don't already have one, I'd recommend this one. It's free and simple.

First start the bluetooth feature on your Blackberry.

Next, make sure the headset is off, then press and hold the Call button for 6 to 10 seconds until the blue indicator light turns on and remains
steadily lit. (The light will flash while you hold the Call button.)
