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

  • deanleach Jan 05, 2009

    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)?

    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?

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.

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

    How do you turn the bluetooth on on a ps3 cause i cant get my bluetooth headset to pair


    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!


    This might help you as well:)

    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.

    Play station 3 dvd remote pairing instructions.


    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.
