Which remote the controller or the remote to control the bluray and stuff. If its the controller just plug it to the ps3 with the usb cable then press the ps button. If it's the remote for the blu ray. I'm pretty sure you just have to go the the "Accessory Settings" and find the option to pair devices. Make sure the remote is in the mode where it searchs, check for that in the booklet, and there may even be a code you have to put in the ps3 (possibly '0000') or whatever it may say in the booklet.
Here ya go. please remember to leave me a positive rating and a testimonial really helps!!
1. CompatibilityThe PS3 supports only one headset at a time. Multiple players on the same console will have to share. Bluetooth:
PS3 uses Bluetooth version 2.0, and is compatible with all earlier
versions (1.0, 1.1, 1.2). 2009 may see version 2.1 Bluetooth headsets
hit the market, so you will have to try it for yourself on PS3.
All brands of Bluetooth headset should work with the PS3.
USB: USB (wired) Headsets can also be used with the PS3.
Any of the PS2 compatible USB headsets should work with PS3 games.
USB headsets are required for PS2 software used on the PS3.
Not Compatible with Bluetooth Stereo Headphones:
Bluetooth audio signal for PS3 only carries voice chat. The game sounds
and music are played through your TV or stereo receiver only.
If you want to listen to the gameplay with headphones then they will have to be compatible with your TV or stereo receiver.
2. Setup A Bluetooth headset has to be registered, or "paired", with your PS3 before it can be used.
Make sure your Bluetooth headset is fully charged before you begin.
your headset instructions for entering "pairing mode". Activate your
headsets' "pairing mode" so it can be recognized by the PS3.
the Cross Media Bar (or XMB) of the PS3 go to the "Settings" tab, then
down into "Accessory Settings", then down into "Manage Bluetooth
With your headset in pairing
mode, follow the onscreen instructions and let the PS3 scan for your
headset. When your headset is found, follow the prompts and enter a
pass key (if necessary- the default is usually 0000 for all brands).
The pairing should now be complete.
you're using a USB (wired) headset, just plug it into one of the ports
on the front of the PS3 (the system should auto-detect the USB headset).
Mic Test and Volume Setting After
pairing a Bluetooth headset, or after plugging in a USB (wired)
headset, return to the XMB. Go to "Accessory Settings" and choose
"Audio Device Settings". You can test your headset here.
headset should appear as the audio input/output device. If not, just
use the D-pad to highlight the Input line, then scroll until you see
yours. Any microphone you have used with your PS3 will be listed, but
only the current one will be available to select.
Set the "Microphone Level" to 3. You can change the level any time if needed.
Speak into the headset, and the level bar at the top of the screen should move at the sound of your voice.
You can also view a list of Bluetooth accessories you have registered in the "Manage Bluetooth Devices" tab under "Settings". If your mic doesn't appear there then try pairing it again.
There are more ways to configure the audio input and output that can be useful:
the input to (your mic) and leave the output on (default)- one person
can chat with the other players, and the replys will play over your TV
speakers rather than into your mic. Great when sharing one console
because everyone can hear the team talk.
the input and output to (default)- you will hear the game sound and
voice chat through your TV speakers but won't be able to talk back.
Great if you don't have a headset, or if you want the room to hear the
Set the output to (default)
to use stereo headphones with your TV or receiver. Then set the input
to (your mic) and you can chat while wearing stereo headphones. Keeping
the mic close to your face could be a problem since both ears are
already taken! You could try a USB desktop mic and see if that works.
General: If you are having trouble with a headset after it is paired with the PS3, there are a few things to check first:
sure your headset battery is charged and working. Be aware that some
brands/models will need to be paired again after each recharge. It's
not a problem, it's just the way those models work.
sure your controller is charged. Lots of strange things happen when the
controllers don't have enough power, like dropouts and headset
The headset should be set as the input/output device from the XMB.
Bluetooth users, make sure there are no other Bluetooth devices in use
near your PS3. Also try to eliminate any other radio frequency
interference if possible.
For USB users, make sure the connection is secure and there are no wire breaks.
Update your console to the current available firmware.
the PS3 cannot locate your headset, make sure that your headset is in
pairing mode before you start scanning. The headset instructions will
tell you how to set yours to pairing mode.
your headset is missing from the device menu after you re-start your
PS3, you will have to pair again. Many headsets will only "remember"
one device at a time, so you may have to register again after using
your headset with a phone.
headset appears on the Audio Device menu but is "grayed out" or not
selectable, it is not connected. Make sure the headset is charged, and
that it is on in standby. I should connect automatically when the Audio
Device menu is selected. Tap the call button on the headset if it does
not connect, or click on the Connect Bluetooth tab on screen.
Make sure no other Bluetooth devices are in use nearby.
Voice Chat Drops:
in-game voice chat drops are simply network lag. Usually they go away
after a short time, so be patient. In extreme cases you may have to
leave a game and return to reset the chat function.
you use wireless internet, a low signal strength to
your modem/router can make voice chat malfunction. Make sure your
wireless signal is as strong as possible to your access point.
Sometimes a headset will quit after changing discs to another game. Go to accessories and select your headset again.
Make sure no other Bluetooth devices are in use nearby.

first of all check if you have latest PS3 firmware update and of course if the batteries didn't run out of charge.
Then switch on PS3 and HOLD down "START" and "ENTER" buttons on the remote for about 15 seconds, it should pair with your console. If it doesn't work at the first attempt, just try few more times.
If it won't work still, please reply to me and I'll get back to you again.
Turn on your Playstation 3, and from the main menu go to Settings - Accessory Settings - Register Bluetooth Device You will be presented with two options: Register BD Remote Control Register Headset/Microphone/Headphones Select Register Headset... and put your Bluetooth headset into pairing mode. On your PS3 select Start Scanning Select your device and enter your pairing code. In most cases for audio devices the default pairing code is "0000" Now on your PS3, go to Audio Device Settings and change your "Input Device" and "Output Device" to your Bluetooth headset name. Try speaking and watch your "Mic Level" move!
I solved this problem by taking the batteries out of the remote turning the power off the ps3 for 5 mins then put the batteries back and turned the power back on to the ps3 and went to the settings and paired it up sorted
I'm pretty sure you can't just 'turn on the bluetooth', it doesn't work like that, well not for my PS3 anyway. The controllers use bluetooth, if you want to turn them on just press the PS button on the controller, that will sync it with the PS3, thus making it usable.
I had same trouble in the beginning.
I have 80G PS3 and tried pairing and also registering.
I solved it by taking out the batteries then going to the menu where it says Register Blu Ray remote (System 2.40 version) then put the batteries back in and you do as the instruction says => Press Start and Enter button at the same time for 10 seconds ... it will say it registered.
OK I FIGURED IT OUT!!! First turn off the system(ps3) make sure that you take the batteries out of the remote. Then when you turn it back on go straight to system setting, setting accessories, setting blue tooth device. AND THEN IT WILL TELL YOU TO HOLD DOWN THE START AND ENTER BUTTON DOWN!. Don't forget to put the batteries back into the remote. It took like 3 seconds.
I also had this problem running PS2 games. I noticed that when it happened, my bluetooth remotes becames unpaired and could no longer be used to turn the PS3 on/off. Pressing the PS button would not interrupt the hung PS2 game (i.e., it would not give me the options to quit the game, turn the system/controller off, etc.).
I talked with the Sony Playstation folks and they suggested resetting the bluetooth controllers (by poking the hole on the backside next to the screw hole). They said sometimes the bluetooth info gets honked. Just before this problem popped up, I was messing around with pairing a bluetooth headset and may have interrupted the pairing.
You may have a similar situation, so try resetting your controllers. You may have to plug into the USB port if they won't re-pair after resetting (I did). Good luck!
