    My Sony 80GB PS3 will not recognize my BD/Playstation remote control. Have changed batterires and repeated instructions numerous times with no success.

    My remote was ok with my 40Gb system , but that went U/S. Got a new 80Gb but now doesn't see the Remote. Had to reset the controllers, is this the same?

  • superdynamit Jan 07, 2009

    Same Problem. I tried 2 different remotes.

  • stephenr10 Jan 25, 2009

    same problem - remote control has fresh batteries.


    Clueless....is there a compatibility problem with the 80gb version (which is what I have)?

    registration of my remote is not working

    Same problem, Somehow the old information before a reset is still in the RC, You can reset the PS3 but not the RC you can only register to 1 PS

  • mpf320 Feb 12, 2009

    The remote was working before I reset the ps3. It did not work after this so I tried to re-register; however, I push start/enter for the longest and it does not work. Any ideas?

Accessory Settings then go to
Register BD remote control not Manage blue tooth devices like PS tells you to.

I had this problem trying to pair my remote, but I used the old saying " when in doubt......reboot " and, voila!!!! The BD remote will now pair with my PS3!!! So, if all else has failed, use the power switch at the back of the PS3 and turn the system off for 60 seconds. Worked for me!!!

I just had the same issue with my 60gb. I was sitting on the couch while trying to register the remote and it didn't work. So I tried registering the remote (holding enter and start) as near as I could to the system and it synced in moments. So I'd recommend standing right next to the ps3 when you register the remote. Of course one would hope you solved the problem by now considering the date this was posted.

Instructions for sony bd remote control


You can also plug in your Keyboard/mouse (any usb type keyboard and/or mouse will work with a PlayStation 3). That will allow you to navigate the PS3 XMB Menu, as follows:
1) Prepare the BD Controller.
2) Go to: (Settings) > (Accessory Settings)...
3) Select [Register BD Remote Control].
4) Follow the on-screen instructions to register the BD remote control.
When the registration, or pairing, is complete, your system will assign a controller number to the remote.

Hints
  • You can register only one BD remote control at a time. If you register another BD remote control, you will overwrite information on the currently registered device.
  • After you reach the maximum of seven active wireless controllers, you cannot register or use a BD remote control.
  • Registering the BD remote control with another PS3 system will clear the device registration from the first PS3 system.
  • For details on the BD remote control, refer to the instructions supplied with the remote.

I have a BD remote but do not have the actual PS3 controller. How do I pair the BD remote without having a PS3 controller?


Unfortunately you can't, you at least need a controller to get to the option in your setting to register a bluetooth device.

Problems to register (pair) the BD Remote Control PS3... I press START + ENTER but not recognize... :-(


Be sure to only press enter and start. I was accidentally pressing the direction ring that surounds the enter key. This was preventing the pairing from working. You must press the enter key with your finger nail.

I a playstation 3 Blue-ray disc remote control which wont pair


Go to Accessory settings in the PS3 Settings menu,which will have you register/sync the BD controller with the system. Follow the onscreen instructions &it will give the controller a #. Remember that any universal remote wont work..it has to be the Sony PS3 remote, as they use bluetooth technology instead of the usual infrared.

BD/Playstation remote will not work.


I had the same problem.  
1) Go to Accessory Settings\Manage Bluetooth Devices
-it will tell you that your BD device is not registered-press enter to register. The screen will say scanning.
2) Go back to Accessory Settings\Register BD Device and press "Enter & Start" at the same time.

I hope this helps. It worked for me.
