Question about Sony Blu-ray Remote for PlayStation 3

5 Answers

Can't pair up my blu-ray remote with the PS3.

I do as they say in the instruction booklet but my PS3 does not connect with it! Trust me, I do EXACTLY as they say... I have the newer 80g PS3, dunno if that makes any damn difference. It kinda pisses me off because I have brought the remote back to the store and exchanged it for another one with the same results as I tried it! I tried pairing it, registering it...nada! The start - select thing dosn't work aswell...I can wait there for an hour and it won't connect. Can anybody help me please?

Thanks. (And yes, I've changed the batteries and still nothing...)

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.

I just did it.

Hi, you should be pushing the start button on the Blu ray remote NOT the playstation controller. I was puzzled for ages until I noticed the remote had a start button, so push both buttons on the remote....

I had the same problem. I found out anything that is wireless was interfering with it. I unplugged my turned of the controllers. still did not work. I turned of the router because someone said it would interfere with it. I could not think of anything else and it still was not working then, I realized the wii was sitting right next to it. I unplugged that and it finally worked. So unplug anything with a wi-fi or bluetooth signal.

    Remote control has stopped working tried pressing start and select at same time but nothing happens


    The latest update had a side effect of de-pairing the blu-ray remote. Just go in and re-pair it. I believe it is off the systems menu. It should work fine after, assuming your batteries are still good.

    Ps3 remote


    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.

    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.
