You need to have paired the headset. With the headset there should be instructions on how to pair it with the ps3. If not go to settings-> accessory settings-> manage bluetooth device->turn on the headset-> press scan-> and finally press the pair button(do not hold down). Finally choose the type of headset you have and enter the pass key. enjoy.

I have a wirless xbox 360 headset and it was working about 4 days ago and I had it on charge when it died when I went to charge it wouldn't charge or turn on and I have had it to long to take back to...


so you are saying that you have a chargeable microsoft headset and the last time you tired to charge it. it would not work... it sounds like your rechargeable battery is dead and you might need a new one. also try you head set on a friends unit and see if it works, at the same time take their chargeable battery and place it in your headset and see if it works that will tell you if it is your headset or the battery..

Is your PS3 seeing the Headset?
Is the headset in pairing mode?

Complete details below on how to connect it:
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. ***

Seems you should order another cable from madcatz because your charging cable might of become faulty or you might want to change usb ports on the computer you are using.
