    Hold down the power button til the blue light stays lit and then hit scan on the ps3, it should find it then. Then it will ask for a password and the pw is 0000. And then go into accessory settings, manage bluetooth devices and activate it from there.

I am trying to manage the bluetooth on the ps3 and everytime i click on scan, no matter what i do it stays scanning telling me to wait... i am not understanding why its giving me a hard time and how do i...


hi there,
what are you trying to connect by bluetooth? The ps3 bluetooth will only work with ps3 controller, remote control, keyboard etc... will not connect to other things like mobile phones. If what you are trying to connect is a ps3 device, make sure its turned on when doing the scan. Hope this helps

Try to connect it to my boost mobile phone and the phone does a scan but doesnt picks up the bluetooth signal from the headset


Try this:
First, turn your bluetooth headset off. Then, start the scan to locate the headset on your phone. Just as the scan starts, turn your headset on. You may have to do it a couple of times to get it to work - but most headsets only go into pairing mode for a short few seconds just after being turned on.

I cannot get my Orb bluetooth headset to work. and yes before you say it im not a dohnut i did follow the instructions as they are put out but when scanning for bluetooth devices on my ps3 it scans...


i figured it out!!! you have to do the Scanning firstly then when you are asked to hold down the P button for 5 seconds and it turns RED immediately open the microphone whilst it is still RED and it will work (hopefully) then it will be registered with your ps3! (hopefully)

Good luck :)

How to pair the bluetooth headset to the ps3


Hi,

This is the info i got when i was looking to pair my headset with my PS3.


1. Turn your bluetooth headset on. It should flash on/off every few seconds.

2. Go to Settings > Accessory settings > Manage bluetooth devices.

3. Put the headset in "pairing mode".

4. Start to scan for the device. PS3 should pick it up. It will display the model if successful.

5. Once it's found it hit the options button. Connect the device (pairing mode) A blue icon will pop up.

6. Your headset will stop flashing meaning it has connected successfully.

7. Go back out and click on the audio device settings.

8. Input device > select "your headset". > output device > "your headset".

9. Hit the "connect bluetooth" icon. Then OK.

10. Your headset should now be successfully connected.. start talking into it to see the bar level move up and down to confirm its working.
Hope it helps.

Best Wishes,

Karlos

Pairing my headset to the PS3


Ok people, here is how it is done- Turn off your bluetooth. When it is off, press and hold the main button (power button) until it flashes(keep holding even after it flashes). The light on the device should turn solid blue (instead of flashing) now you can let go of the power button. My device was picked up immediately... after 2 hours of trying to figure it out of course, lol. Hope it works for y'all!

~Live long and prosper ;)

Ps3 bluetooth connection


I think you are mixing up two different technologies. You said you have recently bought a Wireless Router and when you try scanning for Bluetooth devices you can't find it?

First of all, Bluetooth isn't Wi-Fi. You should go to Network Settings under Settings in the XMB and choose for a Wireless Connection and then let it scan.

Be sure you don't have a 40 GB PlayStation 3 since they don't have Wi-Fi.

I hope this helps. Please rate.

Linking a BT125 Bluetooth to my PS3


I had the same problem trying to connect my old Jabra BT125 headset to my brothers PS3, here's what worked for me:

-Turn on the headset by holding down the button but keeping it down until a solid light comes on.

This puts the headset into discovery mode, you can the start scanning for the device and it should find it.
